About MelJen
Joined February 2015
I recently found myself having to start over after some pretty tough life circumstances and am optimistic that Wealthy Affiliate will be a viable way forward for me. Having contracted a neurological disease in my early thirties while raising two daughters as a single parent, I can tell you I have some neat experience with budgeting, or as I prefer to call it, 'living well on little.'

Part way through a psychology degree when life intervened with its other plans, I found I wasn't well enough to continue my Bachelor of Applied Science. After some decades however, I'm now completing a Diploma of Professional Counseling, which is not as prestigious but still in line with my main passion in life - ie human behaviour. I find it fascinating, though at times disturbing. What I've read in the textbooks can be applied in so many practical ways to everyday experience, and as I look back over the years, I've been able to identify the many areas that would have benefited had I been wiser earlier. My goal is to use both my personal experience of physical, personal and relationship issues, coupled with my growing knowledge in the field, to reach out an educate others. A stitch in time....as they say.

Both my daughters are now beautiful, responsible, compassionate and aware young women, and my grandchildren are growing up the same way. We encourage and support each other through any and everything. One has branched into Information Technology and is my go-to gal for anything technical. I'm in awe of her expertise. The other is a qualified hairdresser who's now undertaking a creative arts degree. We're a happy little motley crew.

Much of my thinking can be found online on my two blogs. I love to write. Let me emphasize that. I LOVE to write! I've been published a modest number of times in anthologies, magazines and even newspapers. My dream is most definitely to publish the two novels, aimed at middle school children, that I'm in the midst of writing, and to use my life experience to publish information about verbal, emotional and psychological abuse.

Other than that, my interests are quite varied. A garden is an absolute must in my life - organically grown is my preference. And never does a week go by that I'm not working on a creative or DIY project. I'm rather fond of my power tools these days. Looking forward to meeting others here on Wealthy Affiliate and to paving a nice little niche area to play with.

Update: I just noticed a post that states it's okay for us to put our website addresses here in our profiles. If anyone is interested, my first is all about emotional and psychological abuse - it's www.killingmesoftly.co - and my second is www.soulandspiritmusings.com I plan to migrate them over to WA a little further down the track.

Thats great MelJen! You have encouraged me in many ways. You are a blessing indeed in our community. Loving your garden, you remind my school days when I was doing my junior studies with agricultural studies. When at home I will go back to our home garden and work there my vegetables. To go back is my dream as well.

Hello and thank you for following me and I will follow you in return.
I did pay a visit to your site and it is way way too dark in colour.
I couldn't help but think this is a reflection of what you have studied, currently interested in and writing about.

I love to write as well and have done ever since I was able to (always came top of my English class at school/college)
That being said page your link took me to is much too long. I really don't think people will read all the way to the bottom.

I would suggest you break it up into three separate articles with their own URL.

One more thing I tell everyone who asks me to browse their site.

Your site is NOT protected which means anybody who wants to can copy your content whether it be text or images/pics.

You have such great info on your site and it would be a shame if someone else could get the credit for it after they use it on their own site. Protect it asap.

I do hope my criticism is looked on by you as constructive and in no way is it meant to be anything else.
You have a nice day.
Robert

MelJen Premium
Hi Robert, and thanks so much for the constructive criticism, which I most definitely appreciate and will take the time over the coming days to implement your suggestions. I think I'm trying to juggle too many balls at the moment and need to cut back and focus on one or two options, and build them up to the best they can be.

I do have a preference for 'dark' colours, it's true. My furniture is all dark timber and some people like it, others do not. As for the site though, I've read more than once that it's best to stay away from dark backgrounds, so I'll take that on board. After all, the aim is to have as many people as possible read and enjoy the information I have out there. I'll also break up my articles as suggested.

Also, would you mind telling me how I can protect my site? I'm not very far into the WA training yet and haven't come across that info yet. Is it a plugin? I'd greatly appreciate being pointed in the right direction. Thanks again...and cheers from Oz.

Robert-A Premium
Hi, eezy peezy to protect your website.
You are right there is a plugin.

Go into your Plugin Section
Click ADD NEW
Type in - Wordpress Protection
The first one is usually considered the best.
After you install it
Go into its Settings (see pic)
Make sure you people can't copy/paste your text
Make sure people can't Right Click and steal your images/pics
Remember to click SAVE
Have a nice day.

Hullo fellow writer. Thanks for your kind words and encouragement. I'll let you know when the novels are near completion - but don't hold your breath. :) I'm writing a short ebook at the moment to kick-start both my writing and my work here at WA. Good fun really.

Are you working on any particular writing yourself at present? I love to hear of people being published - in this day and age, it's harder than ever, but we writers are a resilient lot.

justeileen Premium
Hi,

We recently self-published a book on Amazon Kindle. It has a very small audience due to the subject, so it won't be on the New York Times Bestseller List. LOL
But it was an excellent learning experience!
If you want to take a peek it is Titled:
"From Airplanes to Burnishers: The Story of One Family's Transition from the Airline Industry to Janitorial Entrepreneurship, With Hints, Tips, and Instructions"
It has a lot of photos also to show window washing and carpet shampooing, etc.

Please let me know when your e-book is finished also. :)

Writers march to a different drummer! :) But, we march on.

Love connecting with you.

Best of everything,

Eileen

Hi MelJen Thanks for following me. And Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

Hi Melinda!

You clicked to follow me a bit ago and I am glad to follow you now,

So much to do here but one thing I know for sure is that as you do the lessons and related tasks you build a business that you can take pride in and will in time bring you satisfaction and a bit of income, however large you want that to grow.

I'm watching for what else you will creatively bubble to the surface.

Hi Karen, I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reply to you. I've been away from home and internet access has been limited. I'm so sorry to hear of your accident and TBI but also very pleased you lived to tell the tale. I'm no stranger to the limitations that a compromised body places on your life. It affects every single facet of your being and it can be a long, long haul to get through it with a smile. I have cognitive issues due to a brain that's been damaged by viral infection so I have much empathy for you. We'll make it in the end though! All the best to you too.

Thoughts become things.You most certainly are already successful in my eyes...having 2 beautiful, responsible, compassionate and aware daughters, and grandchildren as well, you are surly blessed. All the best to you Mel. If ever you need assistance with anything, be sure to reach out. I'm here to help. Nui.

The pleasure really is all mine Mel. I don't think of myself as a writer, although I am a connoisseur of the feelings and emotions they produce.

Good morning to you MelJen, my name is Ken and I thank you for the follow. I sure could have used your services in behavior science a few years ago after my wife died. I almost destroyed myself. But I have risen and now I am alive again. I am living proof that GOD answers prayers.
You can also use your experience as a writer as a consultant to help all the other want-to-be's. I wish you a happy journey and much success to you.
Ken

What a lovely message, Thanks so much, Ken. I'm so sorry to hear about your wife and fully understand the deep impact it's had on you. I almost destroyed myself after a divorce...can't imagine what it must be like to lose someone the way you did. I've been thinking about a couple of niche ideas to do with my counseling but am unsure if it would work here at WA. I have a blog dedicated to helping educate people about emotional, verbal and psychological abuse. There is a lot of suffering in this world of ours. Good to hear you're back on track. Much success to you also!

Hey Melinda!

Just wanted to run something by you, in case you didn't know, so you won't miss out on anything here..

There's 1 day left for you to get a 59% discount on Premium. I highly recommend this for you. I think it'd be a great move! But, it's optional.

Cheers!

Just dropping by to see how you are doing.

Typically, those who fill out there profile info do receive a better response time and get more help.
