Hi, Thanks for taking the time to view my profile. :-)

I'm Mel Waller

Melissa Jeane was born 26 Jan 2020. My secret motivation. :-)

Publisher with 1,124 titles in print, mostly reprints of Public domain works, selling mostly on Amazon. 279 ebooks selling on Amazon.
Author 4 books

In Feb 2019, I just started taking blogging seriously and building this as my next source of passive income.

I've had many successful businesses in my life. I always preferred working for myself than collecting a paycheck from someone else.

I served in the U. S. Marines July 1980 to March 1988. No combat thankfully.

I love traveling! I lived in Oahu, Hawaii for 4 years total - Aloha!
I lived in Northern Japan - Misawa, Japan for 6 months - Hai! Domo!
I lived in Southern Spain - Rota, Spain for 3 1/2 years - Muchas Gracias!
I lived in the Philippines over 4 years. - Mabuhay!
Did I mention I loved traveling? haha

Hobbies: I used to collect coins, stamps, antiques, books, rocks, insects... haha just about everything. Very curious about things. I used to hunt and fish. I love the outdoors.

One year, I had a metal detector and enjoyed hunting for lots of goodies in the ground. Very relaxing and exciting wondering about what was about to be revealed. Most interesting find: 1884 star shaped Dubuque Dog Tag. Sold for $75 on ebay.

I LOVE HELPING PEOPLE! That's a huge part of who I am.

I collect MEMORIES/experiences and NOT things. That fuels my Passion for Life.

In 2012, I got divorced after 24 years of marriage. I gave up everything I had except my small part time publishing business. I essentially started my life over with just about nothing. I worked 24/7 for the next 2 years saving and building up my publishing business. In 2014, I started living the laptop life and traveled to SE Asia and have been living on my passive income from publishing books, mostly reprints and they sell on Amazon. Sometimes in survival mode as income not even enough to buy the food I needed. Lost 90 lbs. I have gained some of that back. :-)

In Feb 2019, I decided to work on making money from blogging because I love writing and I've been learning a lot in the process and found my way here to WA in March 2019. One of the great blessings in my life because of the endless opportunities this provides my family and I.

I'm just about the friendliest person you are ever going to meet. When I go out my door, I am walking and talking to everyone I meet. Every day is a gift!

Now, my life has not been without major challenges. Bullied for 9 years in school. Low self-esteem. Depression. Came close to suicide in 1978, any closer and I wouldn't be here. Not exactly homeless, but I lived in my car for 4 months during the Recession of 1980.

I've witnessed the dark side of life. That's where my compassion comes from. I choose to be the light. I want to write about that some day. The story needs to be told.

To Your Success!

Great to see that you've added some goals Mel!

Working towards achieving these goals will happen as you take action on the lesson tasks here at WA. Ask questions when you have them, and take your time. This is not a race, and your time investment will have you up and running before you know it!

You're going to do just great!

Hey there MelWaller,
Thanks for following me and I just followed you back of course.
Wow that’s a great blessing seeing no combat while you were serving the Marines. I also like guns, tanks, fighter jets, and similar stuffs Mel. But if ever I joined the army I would also wish not to see combat as well. Haha! I love my life brother and a single hit can end it however I salute you for greatly serving your country. And you’d mentioned you lived in the Philippines for 4 years(?) Well, I’m from Philippines . Nice meeting you brother.
I wish I could also do travels like you do, hopefully when we succeed here at W.A
I just started here at WA like less than 15 days ago.

-Cheers Mel

Hi Mel,
Hope this day finds you well.
If I start with the free sight and want my own domain later will my free site forward my traffic to my new site?

How do I find our chat thread after I have clicked on the message alert bell?

Thanks for your time!

Hi Michael,

If you move your site.rubix site over to a new domain name, everything should transfer over as far as web pages,posts..etc.

Traffic? I'm guessing your wondering if you had people visiting your site.rubix site would they be re-directed to your domain website? I am not sure on that. If that is your question I could try and find out.

If you want to start a new conversation with me, you can continue this thread on your profile page or bookmark my profile page and post at the top of that.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/melwaller

My profile page will also list a lot of my contact info/soc media. I know it can get hard if people stay starter member and not be able to do some things after the initial period.

Once you are premium should you choose to become one, its a lot easier to just PM Private Msg others.

I am in the Philippines so pretty much on your time schedule. I believe we are one hour difference.

To Your Success!

Hello Mel,
Thank for leaving information about yourself. I too like to travel. Been to many places here in the US, but managed a week in Hawaii, another week in Italy, and another week in Africa - Kenya to be exact. Went on a Safari, with my wife and child, who was ten at the time.

Unfortunately we had more travel time interrupted when I had a stroke back in Feb 2019. Really bad as I lost all my memory and most of my eye sight. Hence, my recovery and ernest to become well again has lead me to here. I want a way to reach as many people about stroke recovery as I can.

I am a registered nurse, and specialize in surgery, and I don't think I'll give that up -- ever. There's so many things that are rewarding about helping people regain their normal body functions as they once knew them.

Hope to speak to you soon, your writing experience will be very helpful to me
