About MNorton
Joined January 2016
I'm 55, divorced and retired. I'm looking for something I can do at home to keep busy and make some extra money. This is something I can do and enjoy it. I'm looking forward to seeing the benefits of working hard at this online business.

I enjoy traveling, bowling, football and hockey. I love trying different kinds of foods and wines. I like going to the mountains of Tennessee and staying in a cabin for a nice get away.
I'm a Veteran from the Marine Corps. I proudly served my country. I made life long friends there. I still keep in touch with some of them.
I feel like this would be a place where I could make the same kinds of life long friendships within this community.

I have 2 cats, Bianca and Maxine. They keep me company. They can be a handful sometimes, but I enjoy having them around. I belong to a wonderful church, Mt. Zion Baptist Church. I have a great pastor Bishop Joseph
W.Walker III. My love for God is what keeps me going.

Blessings to you all,
MNorton's Accomplishments

Hi Mary,

Thank you for following me...seems I made a mistake and thought I was already following you, but realized I hadn't yet...
Anyways, it's great to meet you and I look forward to hearing of your journey to success here.

Sounds like a great place to get away...a cabin in the mountains! Must be beautiful there!
Best wishes :) ~Sherry

I take this glorious opportunity to welcome, thanks, and appreciate your kind following and networking with me at WA. It may take a bit of your ample time here but it is huge for me. :)

This is also the opportunity for me to know about my networking people briefly.

Good afternoon to you Mary, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I apologize for the lateness of this message, I have been away from my computer for most of the summer. Forgive me please, I have been busy with my yard projects, garden, replacing fence, enhancing patio, etc. In Louisiana a typical summer day, when it is not raining, is 92 to 98 degrees, 60 to 90 percent humidity, and very little if any breeze. When I do get to venture inside the ac is sooo refreshing. lol.

You have chosen well to pick WA to teach you how to earn an income online. I say just stay focused, do all the lessons, don't skip any.Ask the community questions if you don't understand. It takes a little time to build your online presence. But once it is built, keep learning and adding content to your site. Knowledge is power, it will set you free.

I look forward to networking with you and I wish you good fortune in reaching your goals and earning a great return!

Hi Mary! I absolutely enjoyed reading your profile. What a wonderful life you have--with your cats, friends, church and God! You seem to be doing well on WA. You are an inspiration to me that I can have success here too. Thank you for following me! Following you now too! God Bless --Lainey

I visited your site but I could not leave a comment because there ls no comment box. I like all of your posts. There is one thing that I noticed, they all have the same Wealthy Affiliate banner. Variety is the spice of life, I counted 8 coming after each other. Take another look at it and see if you want to change it.
Keep up the good work. Big hugs to Bianca and Maxine.

Hi Luna,
Thanks for visiting my site. I'm glad you like my posts. I've been having trouble with trying to get a comment box on my posts. It's very irritating when someone wants to leave a comment and they can't. I've tried several different methods other people have tried to help me with, none of them worked. I don't know what else to do. As for the banners, those kind of fit my explanation of WA to me. I have looked at the others, I don't really care for them. Maybe if they come up with some new ones in the future, I will change my mind, not stubborn just a different taste. If you have any suggestion on how to get a comment box on my posts, please don't hesitate to let me know. Thanks so much. Have a great weekend.

Hi Mary
Thanks a lot for following me!
I am returning the favor, and I want to let you know that if you ever get stuck please feel free to give us (me) a shout.
To your success!
PS. I bet my last penny that Bianca and Maxine would love to see the world...wouldn't they?
MNorton Premium
Lol...they probably would. I will show them pictures of my trips one day. Have a great day!

Mary, nice to hear from you. I am a bit tardy in responding but occasionally I get overwhelmed. (Actually read often into that.) I visited you site and wanted to comment on your pet post but got nowhere when I clicked on 'leave a reply'. So maybe later.

One thing I will suggest is NOT to align your images on the left. Google doesn't like this. Centre or right alignment is great.

Maybe in the taking care of pets bit you could do a bit on pet health insurance. We don't have it even though we did consider it. By the time we had decided to do this, our cat Katie got sick with a liver disorder and has now cost upwards of $5 grand!

Great site and do keep in touch.

Hi Helen,
Thank you for your feedback and kind words. This is still a work in progress for me..lol!! I'm still trying to get things straight on my site, that's why I ask for feed back so I can fix whats wrong to make it better. I will do some research on pet insurance and make sure to put it on the next post I do on the subject. I really appreciate it. Have a great weekend. Blessings to you.

Nice to meet you, Mary. I hope everything is going well for you so far. I would love to have a couple of cats but we're not allowed to have pets where I live. I also love traveling & would love to see the mountains of Tennessee. Maybe sometime this year. Who knows. May this year bring you an abundance of success.
Following you back.

Hi Mary,
I have 3 cats. I love them all very much. Yes, you are right, they can be a handful at times. I have never understood why some people are afraid of cats.
You seem like a very good person, and love life.
Did you know that my family and I live in T.N. ?? I agree with you about how beautiful the T.N. mountains are. I love them also.
Let's stay in touch.
Your friend, and sister in Christ.
P.S You look so beautiful in this picture.

Hi Che'rree,
Thank you so much for the lovely comments. I love going to Gatlinburg, it's a beautiful area, especially in the fall of year. The colors of the trees are simply amazing!! That's the only picture I have of myself that I really like..Lol!!
We will stay in touch. Have a good evening my sister.
Blessings to you.

Thanks for following me, I'm now following you as well.

I see you said you love trying different kinds of foods and wines. Do you also enjoy creating recipes? My website is devoted to food and I invite people to post recipes there. I'm in the process of re-building. It was up and doing well before, now I'm starting over. May I ask what your site is about?

MNorton Premium
Hi Becka,
My site is about retirement, and how to enjoy it. timeforsomethingnew.info. Please take a look at it and tell me what you think. I'll look forward to hearing from you. Have a good evening.
Becka56 Premium
Very interesting. I do have a question though. What are you selling through these websites to make money?
MNorton Premium
Hi Becka,
I'm not selling anything. I'm promoting WA, that's all.
Becka56 Premium
Oh, I figured you'd be doing more.
MNorton Premium
Not yet. I feel like this is what I need to be doing right now.

I wish you to become an AWESOME online marketer (if you aren't already :) ) and live a life of your dreams!

My greatest passion is video games and I strongly believe that games can influence our lives in a very positive and beneficial way. I'm always ready and willing to discuss the topic, so feel free to contact me anytime, if you're even slightly interested.

Also, if you ever need anything, have questions to ask, thoughts to share or just want to chat – just send me a message and I will try to help as best I can.

Cheers, good luck and see you around!

Hi Mary!! Thanks for the follow! I read your recent blog post and I thank you for being real. I'm totally new to all of this and I know there will be days when I'll get into a rut. What a wonderful community to motivate and encourage us all. I have a feeling you'll be back at it soon enough. Small steps lead to bigger steps...just keep moving.
