Thanks to the training at Wealthy Affiliate- My longest post!

Last Update: September 18, 2018

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is doing great! My area of South Carolina faired pretty well through the hurricane ! I have never seen so much rain ! Incredible! Parts of the state got 22-26 inches in 36 hours and parts of the state fell in the middle ! That is where I was.

I went back to some of my notes that I took when I went through the Certification training at Wealthy Affiliate just as a refresher. What happened was some great ideas to implement to a post I was working on!

The ongoing post!

I had a post that was at about 1200 words and after I read through my notes and did about an hour of research it grew quite dramatically!

It wound up being my longest post! And at over 4600 words I had to bring it to a close, because it was about to become an E book! LOL

Then I started thinking about it, and decided that I would make it an e book! Not in the post, but I decided to complete my thoughts in each header section and it wound up being an 8,000 word e book! I just got my E book cover from Fiverr a few minutes ago!

I will spend tomorrow proofreading again, adding some more white space and images and then publish it to Kindle tomorrow night. Wish me luck!

It was funny how it turned out! I've had that post in site content for a few days working on it as I came up with ideas while I continued on with my scheduled posts, and it kept getting bigger! I think I will also use that E book as a lead magnet!

I spoke with someone at W.A. via E mail on Sunday about feedback, comments etc. I am sorry but I accidentally deleted the e-mail and I don't really remember who it was. If you are the one I was speaking with, I didn't forget about you! Send me a PM and we will continue with what we were doing. :)

Just thought I would post a few ramblings and let you guys know that I should be around a little more since my big content week is over and the hurricane is gone.

P.S. Anyone who is interested in some real world explanations of how to be successful in plain English, I strongly suggest that you check out the video training that Grace ( Little Mama) has been sharing! I love content like that! She is doing a super job with it!

Keep on keeping on!

Best of success to you all!

Mike

Great to hear you got through the hurricane and best of success with the e-book, this is something I have always wanted to create and hopefully will learn to do one day. But for now must keep working on my site to get it looking decent and worthy of some visitors/traffic. Take care.

That's great, Mike! And I agree wholeheartedly with your assessment of Grace's training.

Would you be willing to share some 'nuts 'n' bolts" information about writing an e-book? Not the content, just the mechanics. Such as the writing platform, getting and using a cover, and publishing it to Kindle.

Another blog post, maybe?

Thanks Mike,
WA has taught me to write. When I began I was struggling to put 1000 words together. The other day I did 2,500 easy.
Oh! and I forgot to say, good luck with Kindle...
