About Mistswitch
Joined August 2018
I'm in my late 30's and my only human child recently graduated high school. It feels a little weird to be done with that phase of my life as she gets ready to start college. I'm here hoping to learn how to create a sustainable online income that will allow me to use my new freedom to do some traveling while I am still young enough to enjoy it.

Before August 2018, my experience earning online had been mostly very small things - transcription, mturk, and content creation. The content creation started with ghost writing for BlogMutt clients and has expanded a bit to include a few freelance clients for articles and custom erotica. I have also earned small amounts with amazon affiliates in the past but have not yet grown anything large.

As of January 2019, I am still working part-time in a retirement community. I also have freelance clients and sometimes write for BlogMutt/Verblio clients. I'm participating in A Round of Words in 80 Days writing challenge this year and I included my niche site writing into my writing goals. The challenge helps keep me accountable, which I really like.

I'm comfortable with content creation once I have keywords and a post goal in front of me. I'm okay with WordPress on hosting like BlueHost so the Weathly Affiliate hosted version is even easier to use. My problem areas are things like attracting visitors, having realistic site goals, and finding the motivation to stick to the plan. Those are the parts that make it a business and not just a personal blog. I decided to try Wealthy Affiliate because I wanted clear step by step instructions to follow, not only in building the site but also scaling up to something that can function as an actual business.

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

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!

Hello and welcome to WA Premium. I recently joined myself, and I'm so glad that I did. The information available is never ending!! And the training is Incredible!!

Begin with "Getting Started." Follow that training! I can not stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do them in the order in which they are. And go at your pace. It is not a race. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. I did.

There were a few lessons that I did to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And succeed!!
