About MerleWays
Joined October 2015
Hello everyone. Finding Wealthy Affiliate has been am exciting experience for me. It has given me true hope for the future, both economically and socially. As a former high school drop out, I had struggled to acquire enough education to live at or just above the poverty line. After acquiring an GED, I studied secretarial sciences for a year; and immediately became an operator for Western Union telegram and money order company. Seven and a half years later, I became a secretary for the maintenance department at Riverfront State Prison, in Camden, New Jersey. Fortunately, thereafter, I became a Union staff representative, traveling throughout the State of New Jersey; representing health-care and civilian prison staff. My office skills have allowed me to work as a Public Information representative for the governor's office, in Camden, New Jersey; and as a secretary-receptionist at Social Security, in Wilmington, Delaware. After a long and varied career, I functioned as a senior companion volunteer, a position that ended in August, 2015, and motivated me to seek online work to supplement Social Security.

My first experience was not a good one, because after joining an affiliate marketing program, and then researching that company, I found that I'd bought into a scam. Today, though, after discovering Wealthy Affiliate, I'm 100 percent happy to be learning the many facets of this totally scam-free, work from home, internet business. I look forward to learning, and going on to succeed, and then helping others to succeed in their online businesses. Thanks in advance for any and all help I, we, will receive.

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

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!

Hi Robert, nice meeting you. I am having a problem: I put my web site up, and now having problems activating the plug ins. Cab;t seem to be able to get to that section to activate. Can you advise? Thanks in advance.

When your on the main dashboard of your wordpress back office you should see a button on the left had side that says plugins.

If you click on the "Pugins" button it will bring up all of your plugins that you have. Under the name of each plugin it should say "activate". Click on that and it should work.

If that doesn't help you, tell me what particular plugins you're having problems with and I'll look into it more.

Yes once you get the technical stuff done then the content becomes the routine. It would be similar to a news letter. Glad you got it figured out.

Hi Merle,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. I'm Robert from http://theaffiliatelifestyle.com and I'm so glad you decided to join this amazing community. You've made a great decision.

I know you'll get all the help and support you need here to create an online business that you'll be really proud of.

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS......

You may recall me saying that I would give you a bonus if you upgrade to a Premium membership within the first 7 days. Once you upgrade you will automatically get the bonus, here's what it is:

1) You'll get a 59% discount on your first month Premium Membership(only $19)
2)You'll get unlimited private access to me via private messaging on my WA profile for any help you need.
3)You'll get the special "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days(this is what I call my "Action takers" bonus).

Once you join Premium, send me a quick message on here and I'll then send you the bonuses.

For now you should do 2 things to start. First you should complete your profile with a short write up about yourself and a profile picture so that other members in the community see that you're a real person. Second thing you should do is watch this video on getting started. So I just wanted to welcome you and introduce myself. Its great to have you part of this amazing community. Don't be afraid to contact me anytime.


Cheers,

Robert
