Why Im Leaving Wealthy Affiliate
It’s the last day of the month and as the hours tick by, my WA subscription trickles away. I won’t be renewing it,
I’ve been weighing up the pros and cons of staying for several months now and as time passes, the cons get heavier.
These are the main reasons I can’t stay:
1. I can’t afford another year’s sub. In two years I haven’t made a cent and who’s to say that will change? I’m on a fixed income and it barely covers my living expenses.
2. I’ve struggled with tuition from videos, which are, in fact, mainly audios. I like to take notes so give me text any day – unless it’s something heavy with visuals, like pruning a bonsai. My hearing is impaired and getting worse, so I need to read for information. In fact, I can’t finish the training course because I can’t hear it well enough.
3. I dislike the ranking system. I gather that most members accept or like it so I won’t rock the boat by discussing my opinion of it.
4. I don’t fit into the system, I’m not comfortable here – the veritable square peg. After two years’ premium membership, I still feel I don’t belong. That’s my fault, not WA’s.
I’ve found someone to help me – and he uses written material – so I’m not giving up. I’ve met so many wonderful members here and I’ll sorely miss you. I thank you all. WA has become a habit but… the time has come to move on.
My warmest, strongest, best wishes to you all for your online success and your personal happiness.
