UPDATE: 8/15/17-- As much as I really enjoyed my job at the veterinary clinic, I have tendered my resignation. I start my new, full-time job on Monday, 8/21/17. This will make it somewhat more difficult to spend as much time on the WA platform as I would like, but I will make it work somehow. That's what I've always done. :)

My name is Linda. I am glad to be here. It took me a long time to actually sit down and get started. I had, in fact, forgotten that I had this site saved to my Google favorites tab!

Anyway, I am employed part-time outside the home at this time. I don't earn very much money at it, but most of the time I like my job very much. That said, I still really need to be earning more. It seems to be, at least these days, that if you don't have a degree of some kind--even just for a job as a secretary--you don't get hired. I have been many things in my lifetime. I started babysitting when I was 10 years old, and did that until I was 15. I became a waitress at 16, and from there went on to be a lot of different things: a home health aide, a hotel maid, a mail inserting machine operator, an order picker/packer, a returns processor, a forklift operator, a self-employed house cleaner, a US Postal Service employee, a temp for Kelly Services agency, an administrative assistant for a very large ophthalmology practice, a shipping clerk for a plastic injection molding company, a purchasing agent for a large eyeglass & contact lens retailer, and now I have seemingly stopped my career path at veterinary receptionist. All that experience behind me, yet because I have no degree, I am not considered employable anymore. *Reason number one for my being here, in case any of you wondered. :)

So here I am, a married mother of three grown children (32, 20, 18) and two dogs (10 and 9). I enjoy reading books--my favorite authors are Dean Koontz and Cassandra Clare. I read only two different magazines --Real Simple, and AARP. Most of my TV viewing is Netflix. I am SO NOT A FAN of regular network television these days. My one network television indulgence is the series "Lucifer" on Fox.

I have a fairly large house to maintain (which is nearly impossible anymore!) and all my children (both the 2 and the 4-legged kind) keep me on my toes for the most part. That said, I really believe at least some of my time can be used to help my husband and I out financially. I would really like it if he didn't have to be away from home 12-14 hours a day!! That is just one more of many reasons I have for being here. Now let's see if I can make this work. :)

Money Goals
I would be happy earning $1000 per month.
I would be ecstatic to earn $750 per week.
I would be willing to invest 4-5 hours per day, which would allow me to keep my regular job (which I love) but would also allow me to, hopefully, supplement that income. :)

Good morning everyone! Sorry I have been almost invisible the last day and a half or so. And I will be absent most of today, too. If you have decided to follow me and you don't hear back from me right away, don't fret. I am doing my level best to get back to everyone who honors me with a follow and to follow them in kind.

Normally I am part-time at my job, but one of the other people had to be off yesterday and today and so I am there a lot more right now. I love my job, but it can be extremely high stress! Perhaps when I get home from work today I will come here and immerse myself in this site. There is just something calming about being here with you all.

Have a great day, everyone!

Linda

Your thought for the day made me smile. I talk to myself way more than I should, and sometimes I even answer. I'm not always nice to myself, but I could try to be. :)

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Sorry, Kyle. I have been all over this site and on Google and my eyes are crossing from doing so much reading! I have chosen 2 niches, although I may change my mind on the one. My favorite is "Skin Care For Women Over 50." Originally I had started out with "How To Clean Your House" and I built a website for that, but I may get rid of it. Most people are looking for fast ways to do all of that housework, which is fine. But I am more about thoroughness and organization of the activities involved. Then on to how to get it done. But, aside from that, thanks to you I have a much better understanding of SEO and how it is supposed to work.

Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Thank you very much for the "clarification" of my ideas. When I start to think of it the way you put it in your comments it sort of shrinks the pool that my thoughts are swimming in. And I will focus on just the one for right now. Thanks again! :)
