About MJL71
Joined November 2017
I'm a (so far) unpublished writer of pulp fiction. I believe I could market my writing on the web. However, my first interest is in making enough money to pursue some of my other goals, such as returning to see the places I visited this summer, England, France and Iceland. I want to travel. Right now, I'm in that category of people who aren't poor enough to get aid and not rich enough to get the things I want in life. I see the marginalization of many people as we continue to rocket through the 21st century. Big changes. I see no other way to make money.

Good evening MJL, i saw your offer in the chat box about taking a look and giving some feedback on our sites. I would be happy if you wanted to take a peek on my posts. English is not my mother language... I see that you are a writer so you would notice if my building of sentences is in correct order and the formatting. Spell check is not very helpful on this matter and it is at least as important as having the words right spelled, or even more to have them in the right order.
Let me know if you got a couple minutes to read them, ill be very grateful for your help.

Sure thing. What's your web address?

Thank you. It's good to know there are people to whom you can turn for help. So often (and I've only been here since November), I'd stumble, you know, get totally lost about what to do next, and then I'd get my second wind and just go and ask someone - someone like you. Thank you very much, again.

Hello hello! One of my degrees is in English and Creative writing. I am ever so appreciative of the craft and stamina required of such work. All power to you, pulp fiction writer!

A blog is a great way to find your audience, and I know you will make great strides here. There are certainly many writers whose blogs I really enjoy, and I hope you will be one more among them.

Thanks, Ivy. Thanks for the encouragement. I'm a little off-balance today. Just had to euthanize my cat of 17 years. It's really amazing how we get attached to pets.

Moving on, I started on my degree, here in Toronto, but I never completed a degree. I was upset by that for a while, but I finally accepted it. Nothing in life is 100%. I have a number of writing projects on the go, but my first obligation to myself is to set up an affiliate association with book publishers, etc. I'm still looking into it. Takes time to absorb all this, and there is a lot to absorb.

What is your experience with affiliate marketing?

Thanks for getting back to me.

Completely new to affiliate marketing. Just one of the tangents of the research project!

I'm sorry for your loss. Your family. It's hard I know, and I hope you feel better soon. Oh! And, I studied in Toronto too. I also did my practical in Beijing. I chose Traditional Chinese Medicine, and for very, very good reason I'm seeing. Anyway, just a wee note. I'm heading off to bed. It's been a long day to say the least. Ciao for now.

Hi, I guess you mean my cat. Yes, pets are a real comfort. I used to talk to my cat, and she'd have this way of responding with little grunts, while staring at me like she was trying to figure out what I was saying.

Well, goodnight. Thanks for your support.

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! :)

Will do. My niche is becoming clearer in my head every day.

A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

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. :)

PS. I hope you are looking forward to an absolutely brilliant week ahead! :)

Welcome, Mike, to this wonderful community of genuine, caring inidividuals, all there to encourage and answer any questions, no matter how dumb they may seem.
I believe you are quite correct about the possibilities, out there, in the "job market".
Let's make those dreams come true!
I, too, love to travel, but will be stuck here, in Texas, for awhile!
Best returns on this venture!

Well thanks, I appreciate that. I feel quite at home here, which really surprised me. It's the first time I've spent any time at all online messaging people back and forth. It's a new thing for me and I do feel the support is there. Thanks again.

Well if you have to be stuck, you couldn’t find a better state.

Really, Deborah! Thanks for the follow, as well,
Are you by Atascosita..pardon the spelling?

Yes!
When we're talking and learning from others, here, it's both personal and productive! We have a reason for "jabber-jawing" that is also for learning, not just wasting time.
What a concept!

Hey Mike,
Kyle again. I see you are making progress and your account is completely set up. You are doing great so far. Keep it up. And remember if you need help just ask.

I'll also be stopping by from time to time just to see how things are coming along.

Hey Mike, my name is Deborah. I see you might be a tad worried about loosing communication in four days, is that right? Have you gone Premium yet? I would certainly advise doing so and let me tell you why. it's the community. The help you get from everyone. You get help 2 days after you have solved your problem because people here at WA care and they want to make sure you are alright. That is why I am here right now talking to you. Stay with the program, be a writer for your grandkids. I got into this at the age of 64 because my 40 yr.old daughter needs help and she needs money to get that help so I came out of retirement and started my own business. Scary as hell but I'm glad I did it.
Hang in here with us. We are all pulling for you.

I'm having trouble keeping track of all the "like" comments I'm getting, so I'm trying to catch up. I ain't young either. It doesn't matter. These opportunities weren't open to us "back in the day," as they say.
Well, thanks very much for your support.

Hi, Deborah. A belated "thanks," I see it's been 13 days. Sheesh!
Thanks for the support. It's a problem tracking down all the people who contact me.
