Hi my name is Mike
I have been lucky to have a great mentors here at WA and have come a long way from a guy who looked at computers as an alien species. Over the years I have managed to create quite a few websites that appear to pretty popular and with that a nice income online.

My family has always been my motivating force, a beautiful wife, 3 lovely children and my 2 grandkids are what makes the world go round for me.
My online activities have allowed my family and I to travel quite extensively and enjoy some of the finer things in life. I love traveling, playing soccer, fishing, and most outdoor activities. I look forward to meeting new people here at WA.

Work hard and WA will work for you! Chat soon.

Excellent Mike, I know you will achieve your goals. As you start seeing more progress and results, you will be able to spend more time on your business.

When I started out online, I had limited time because I was in school full time and I was able to achieve "full time" status within the online business world in a year. I totally understand that we all have "time" issues in life, but I absolutely know you can do the same and accomplish the same sort of success!

Take action on the training here, immerse yourself within the community, and ask for help when you need it. This is your sure path to your own personal goals and successes Mike! :)

Good morning Mike,

I hope you and your family are keeping well.
We finally had some good rain the first time in April.
Here we both are in a fit and the house peace is slightly off.
Yesterday I clicked on the Site SSL which is free for Premium members and is recommended.
Then I looked at the 2 websites and of each, the big background photo was missing and also photos here and there from post and pages. The lock had neither turned green.
I put a question to the community and then followed Marion's suggestion and the lock turned green but the photos were still missing.
I then contacted support and they asked for screen shots and this morning got their reply on our second message, have to still look into that. In the meantime, the photos are still missing and I just now read that Marion thinks we might have to reput all the missing ones. I can tell you I am fed up with all this technical hassle, if it is not solved somehow easy I think of taking this SSL away again.

Greetings from the south of Spain, Taetske

I am sorry to hear you have had difficulties with the SSL addition. Unfortunately I have heard that sometimes certain images don't meet the SSL requirements do to the way they are loaded but I would still work with support to get this figured out they are professionals at what they do and there may be an easy explanation without having to input your photos again, let me know how you make out, talk soon Mike.

Hello Mike,

The last suggestion of support was to do a browser cleaning, this I did for the time span of 1 week. On motherearthstreasures the big background photo came back but not on the other site, there were still photos missing here and there. Like in the trip to Portugal, all taken with Michaels camera, some were there and others were not. He has now transferred them from siterubix to dot com and now it seems ok. What a hassle! Patsy just told me that it is a good idea to have a look at your websites incognito, this I will do to then be sure to see what a visitor sees.

I just did the incognito, everything is back to normal.
I still disagree with Kyle, a nice background photo makes a better first impression than only having text.

Good afternoon Mike,

Just a little update.
I have now 228 people in my network and with quite a lot of them have been in constant contact be it likes and also messages.
That is why I do not understand the poor results.
First question had 3 people answer
Second question had 10 people.
First post had 13 messages and 16 likes
Second post of which I thought would be a help to many got only
6 messages and 8 likes.
I really think I should concentrate more on my work as I find that my input has been bigger than the feedback.
I would like your opinion on this.
Hope all is well with you and your family, are you planning that trip this year?

Good afternoon Mike,

Just to tell you all is going well, are tackling these categories naming and also the tags, have also put my websites on my profile. Am getting quite a lot of follows lately so the network is growing.A lady here in WA contacted me and liked the mother earths treasures, she showed it to her sister who has a travel site, triptrekee.com, nothing to do with WA. She liked the post trip to Portugal and offered to have it on her site with a link to me. Michael sent it to her as a word document.
If ever we write about other trips she likes to have it, I think that is good news as it is free advertisement.

Wishing you and your family happy Easter days.

Regards, Taetske

Be careful, in October you might get blown off the rocks, do not forget it is the Atlantic, not the Mediterranean.

Do you have a suggestion for the best month for trip

Well, personally I think May or September might be good. It is not the high season, to be avoided and the weather will probably be nice but not too hot. If you are " next door " I will come to say hello for sure.

Hasta Pronto, Taetske

Mike,
I finally accomplished getting the domain name transferred over to WA and now the real work begins. I have both the about me and privacy page on there as well. Please check the about me page and tell me what you think. I'm still trying to getting use to creating content on my own. I'll have more questions coming as I facing creating some of the content going forward. The name of the domain is adirondackchairsforalloccasions.com. I have done a lot of research and now have to figure out how to put that content out there.

Site looks great Tim very clean and tidy I like the black on white text. Lots of people go for lots of colour but I have always found that plain text works the best. I would add your picture to your about me page and maybe even to all of your posts which you can do through appearance in your websites dashboard, its nice when your visitors can put a face behind the site it ads a trust factor.
When you create your first piece of content copy it and put it in a PM for me and I can help you with the SEO part that will help it rank high, keep up the great work looking good, cheers Mike.

Hi Mike,

I had a a medical issue with my diabetes the last couple weeks and have been unable to accomplish anything until this was resolved. Now it is thank goodness. I am beginning to write my content and will send it to you in the next day or two. I do have a couple of questions. Do I use microsoft word which I started using or do I use wordpress. Also I am thinking ahead on which affiliate or affiliates I may use. I may have a couple I might want to use. How many should you use?

Thanks Tim

I hope everything is ok Tim and your Diabetes is under control I know all about it my dad had a bad run with it and I actually got the diagnosed with its few months ago but the doc said I could turn it around with a strict low carb diet which seems to be working. Best advice I have, cut out the carbs as much as that sucks it does work rolled my numbers back big time and I lost 20 pounds in the process in just over a month. Check out the' dietdoctor.com ' great place for info and foods to eat. Anyway I hope things work out and you feel better.
I would use credible good looking merchants you don't have to limit yourself if these merchants sell a good quality but at decent price point that you can see selling that's your criteria, you are in the driver seat Tim. Use Wordpress for all your posts it has an editor built in spellcheck and grammar check so everything you do should be done from your site.

Hi Mike, just wanted to let you know that my meds are finally adjusted and can now think straight to do this. Over the past nine months I lost over 55 pounds with the hopes it would make it easier for me to control the diabetes. I'm now at a good weight but what I didn't know is it would effect all the meds I take.The doctor was happy with the loss but it took them longer then I figured to get everything else in adjustment. But the worst part was getting the blood pressure where it belongs and it now seems to be good. I'm now reviewing everything quickly so I can start writing content again. I haven't given up and now look forward to what the future holds. Talk to you soon

Hi Mike.
The reason you haven,t heard from me was I,ve been in the hospital fighting pneumonia which was the culprit of all my health issues and I didn't even know it until the night I really fell ill and called 911. I'm finally feeling better and will try to continue but I will be doing a lot of reviewing again. I'm also on antibiotics which are administered by Iv and oral for the next 6 weeks so it won't be easy but I'm going to try again. Hope to talk soon.

Hey Tim site looks great just need a picture of yourself in your about me section and activate your comments. I would have left a comment but will go back when you have that part set up. Looks very good and really like the about me page has a nice real touch which is what you want to connect with your audience. Send me the link again as you progress and I will critique your site, talk soon Mike.

Hi Mike, Just a quick question. Where do I get my product pictures for the products I represent. Do I get them from the manufacturers or Amazon. I'm not sure. I'll be sending a sample page soon now that I'm able to work again.

Thanks Tim

Hi Tim you can get your pictures from anywhere you want even take a screen shot and download it from your computer through your "ad media" on your website you can also type your product description into Google and then hit Google images and you might even find a picture there all you do then is click on the image and hit "save image as" and it will download to your computer you won't have to worry about any copy write issues because you're dealing with a product that is very specific in nature, probably best way is just go to the merchants website and take screen shots of the products, let me know how you make out, hope all is going well talk soon Mike.

Good evening Mike,

Today is a good day as this more than irritating problem of not seeing the banners on my website was solved. It had to do with the ad blocker. This last week even the profile photos had disappeared. The websites are nearly ready so now I can concentrate on writing posts have already quite a list for the near future.
Hope you are keeping well, have a nice weekend.
