Hello mattysmom! Glad to be following you :)

I feel like I can learn alot from you, and in due time, I know that I will understand that out of hard work comes alot rewards!

You wouldn't have made it as far as you have if that was the case.

Thank you so much for following me and it means alot to me to be able to know that I can count on a supportive affiliate in the WA community.

Have a wonderful evening ms. Mattysmom!

Hi Mattysmom, I am in the same boat.. as far as looking for another avenue of income for my son and I. So you are definitely not alone. I'll be soaking up some of your Florida sun next week, but of course the laptop will be in tow, hoping that I get inspired by the environment to write up some content. :o) But you keep your head up, it will all be worth it. All the best to you.

Dear Leahrae,
Did you read my two comments on your websites for Oxnard and Montecito? I keep getting asked to review them. They were both outstanding sites. I'm just checking to see if you received my two in-depth reviews. If for any reason you did not. Please let me know, and I will resend them.
your friend Sandy
P.S thank you for the opportunity to review these sites They were both quite enjoyable.

Mattysmom, thanks for the follow which I reciprocate. Starting to move my project(s) forward by presenting WA to my secondary students trying to build their first websites.
Working with/through WA has to flow with what I am already preoccupied with in order to work for me. Hope you can employ WA to flow with what you are preoccupied or comfortable with.

Good evening to you Leah, my name is Ken and I thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. Isn't it grand to belong to an online university where you can learn the skills to earn an online income from now until you decide to retire? I know I like working for myself and controlling my own destiny. Freedom is everything, and I don't want to wait until I'm too old to enjoy it.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much enjoyment and success in your online journey.

Thanks for connecting! I finally moved away from Florida in January (lived along the Gulf Coast not far from Tampa). Was there for 25 years, most of which I was okay with, but I finally started missing seasons and mountains too much to stay. Also...that TRAFFIC!! LOL I see you've been on WA for awhile, and I hope it has proven successful for you. I've only just begun...

Have a great day! :)

I lived just north of there in New Port Richey. I wouldn't ever go to Clearwater Beach because the traffic was so horrid, so you have my sympathies. It will get better in the summer, though, when spring break is over and all the snowbirds go home. :)

Hi Leahrae,
I read your profile you sound like a women that won't let things like your hearing loos to keep you from success.
I can relate to you as I have hearing aids but only because I'm a Veteran if it wasn't for that I wouldn't be able to afford hearing aids they should make them more affordable.
I pray that God gives you back your hearing
and success in your future. I live in N. St. Petersburg Florida where do you live in Florida?
Have a blessed day!

Hi Leah, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

I just left a cooler comment on your site.

If you have time I would love it if you visited my website and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site address is fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao

Hi, Welcome to WA! It's worth the money you paid for it, you're not getting ripped off. A few things to keep in mind as you progress- you'll be taking in a lot of information at once, so don't rush, just pace yourself and take it in stride. Don't hesitate to ask for help, help comes a lot quicker on here than it does on a customer service 1-800 number. Just go to the live chat or scroll to the bottom of whatever page you're on and post your question, someone should be able to help you. Best of luck!

Hi,
I have just reviewed your site however I am experiencing issue with posting it on the review page - something about a Gravatar email address.
Anyway...
Wow, I love this site.
Not only have you included great images within but it is packed full of information on a topic that ranks high on my list.
The site is easy to navigate through and has helpful menu tabs at the top of the page.
One can easily find what they are looking for and find some great bargains along the way.
.
with the site being so full of information it is easy to see that you have done a lot of research and worked very hard on this site.
.
In looking through the individual pages within your site, I like how you have listed items for sale with just one simple image of a few items listed on Amazon (I need to do this to my page). Again making it very easy for the viewer to look through the site and make a decision rather than hoping from one page to another.
.
I feel you have hit on a niche that would make the majority of people sit up and book a holiday somewhere in the sun. As I reside in Australia, your site does not shut me off or restrict me in anyway as your ideas and or plans can be implemented anywhere in the world.
.
all the best with it.
Aaron.

Thank you for including me in your sphere of influence. I like your site, as stated below it is very well presented. I am amazed that you are not earning from it. However from the looks of the site, I would say earnings are just around the corner. It is your passion, so no problem to keep going and wait for the $$$ to roll in.

Hi Leahrae

Are you an agent, or is your website beachtraveldestinations.com an affiliate site? Just curious. I ask because it is perfectly put together, almost too perfect. I can't critique it because WA won't allow me to.

Did you develop your site? I see a couple of small paragraph line up errors, but that's all I really see. This site looks like no normal person put it together.

I love it in Florida, I've live there two different times, Homestead in 1973 and west Palm Beach 1977. I've been all around Florida, and been to key west three times. When I retire soon I hope to move back there, right now living in Vegas, been here 12 years. two of my sons live with me, one is 24, and the other is 19, then I have another lives in Ohio 46 years. Hopefully we can help each other grow in this business. when I was younger that is where I went on vacations. Do you have a website now and all you doing good with it?

I just moved here and LOVE it :) Came from Texas which I did not think I would miss, but I loved Texas too. I just love the beaches, and Texas beaches are not even comparable to here. I lived in St. George Utah for 10 years, so close to Vegas. I thought I would end up back there, as it is a beautiful place, but I do love the water. Yes, my website is www.beachtraveldestinations.com and I have been here a year, not making money yet but I am a perfectionist, so haven't promoted it yet. But I will :)

Hi there, I am from Plano! Just moved here 6 months ago...just in time for Irma LOL. I have been on here since January of 2016. I like your site! Dementia is a scary thing, and for someone who has not so great hearing (inner ear disorder), it scares me even more because I don't get the same brain stimulation as most without hearing good. Anyway, I think you are doing great!

Hello Leahrae,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I just wrote my 100th training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.

I have been to most of the Texas beaches on your website. And I enjoy ALL of them. Hope to travel to other sunny beaches.

Grew up on an island, off the west coast of Canada but the water was cold. Or as we would say, 'It's refreshing!' I didn't mind the chilly water when I was younger and have fond memories of family holidays at the beaches, in British Columbia.

Wish you all the best.

Hi, I am glad you like them :) I live in Texas so I have been to them all as well. But after visiting beaches in other locations like Mexico, Florida, and even California....it makes Texas beaches seem mediocre....LOL Thanks for visiting!
