About Mitchguy
Joined March 2018
A Mechanical Engineer, a former Professor of Mathematics and currently a missionary in Nicaragua working with children, with teenagers and in discipleship training.

I was born in a bilingual speaking town with French and English spoken equally. When I learned to speak Spanish, my French went into the archives. I can still read it, and understand it, but don't ask me to speak it, it all comes out Spanish. My girls like to say that I know two and a half languages.

I lived in nine different houses in three different cities and attended seven different schools by the time I graduated from high school. Since then I've lived in eight houses in three different cities.

I have been married to my wife Lori since 1995 and have three wonderful daughters.

The Lord has been good to us and we love serving Him together in Nicaragua.
Mitchguy's Goals 3
Money Goals
I have limited time to dedicate to building a website.
I have tried in the past but "got lost along the way" and made no progress.
The structure and guidance being presented in the WA Level 1 training gives me some hope that things will be different this time around.
10 hours / week, $1,500 per month seems realistic.
10 hours / week, $5,000 per month seems surreal.
Saludos.

Sounds great. I'm plugging along hoping it's going well. I'm starting to see some positive trends so hopefully a sign of things to come.

I have a question for you... how did you get that link in your comment? It's a really cool feature.
When I try to post a link in my comments it just shows up as the URL, I'd like to be able to do what you did there with text. I had asked about it a while back and nobody was able to give me an answer.

Thanks in advance.

No go. Not sure what I am doing wrong.
The title of my post is: "I've been conned by Wealthy Affiliate"
Not sure why it doesn't show up like that.

Do you have to add HTML code or something?

No Michel, I just do what I showed to you without adding anything

Hmmm. Not sure why it doesn't work for me.

Thanks for the help.

I guess I'll just have to stick with the ugly looking URL for now.

Perhaps Michel, you have to ask someone from the WA-board!

Don't give up,

Someone noticed that I wasn't using the actual blog URL but the URL of a comment on the blog.

Thanks for your patience and encouragement. Got it!!!

Hello Mitch And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 450+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day
Robert.

Hi Robert,
You got that right about the steep learning curve.
Thankfully there are people like you here who have provided a secondary wave of training that is SOOOO helpful.

Thanks for the offer to help. I'm sure I'll come knocking at some point. I'm still trying to get out from under the first wave of information I've gotten in the first training levels. Trying to digest and assimilate.

No probs Mitch and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

Also you may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you are interested in your rank within WA) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.

Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing else.

But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.

Have a great Thursday.
Robert

Thanks for the reminder Robert.
A couple of thumbs up to you :)

I often forget to click that icon even though I enjoy a post and find it helpful. My mind says thumbs up, but doesn't pass it along to my fingers. Gotta reprogram my brain...

Have a great day.

No probs
A lot of members don't bother what their ranking is and concentrate on why they are here and that's ok and as it should be.
Enjoy your evening.

Good morning,
A quick update on some good news.
A few days ago I was notified that my site had been indexed in Google.
This morning I was notified that two of my posts had been indexed by Google.
Small encouraging steps. While not ranked in the Top 10 yet for the keywords in my niche, it is confirmation that the training process is working and that there are bigger and better things ahead.

Good morning,
I just wanted to share something that highlights the value of the WA community.
Last night as I was working on publishing my first keyword rich post and I came across "Your connection is insecure" when clicking on the "Home" link on my website.
I went to Site Support and starting filling in the form. To my surprise as I typed in "Your connection is insecure" in the "Question" box, a list appeared of similar posts / questions from members who had experienced the same problem under the title "Suggested Training Related to your Message".
When I clicked on a post by [URL=https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/firestix/blog/yor-web-site-says-your-connection-is-not-seure]Firestix[/URL] he had a description on how to fix the problem AND linked to a video tutorial by [URL=https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/ssl-activation-no-padlock-mixed-content-and-google-search-console]Marion Black[/URL].

In literally less than 5 minutes I had the problem solved.
Thanks.
