About Ormbear
Joined November 2015
I'm retired. I am married to my beautiful wife Micki. We have three girls.

I have been using a computer for quite sometime and am familiar with different computer programs like Word, Excel, Outlook and others etc... Before I retired I worked in a Finance Department in San Francisco. I am wondering if WA is for me. I am basically curious as to what Wealthy Affiliate is all about. I still haven't grasp and understand what WA is about so far at this moment. That's a newbie ar Wealthy Affiliate.for you. I am wanting to do something with this WA. At this time I don't know what top focus on. I want to develop a business that would allow me to run and or play for only 10 to 15 hrs a week. I am not looking to make this my full time job. I have the least knowledge of what is possible for me with WA.

I like to spend my free time gardening, I am not a professional gardener its just a hobby. As a child I would watch my mom and dad work on their garden. I use to look out for bugs, butterflies, dragonflies, caterpillars birds that would be attracted to my parents garden. I would get mesmerized by my exploring, playing and just plain having fun in my parents garden.

As I got older I joined a Bonsai Club in the Bay Area. Which I took classes for about 5 years. I ended up tending about 200 trees. Which was more than I could handle at the time. Bonsai are constantly in need of leaf plucking and watering and some bonsai need annual transplanting.

I didn't start my first vegetable garden till later when I was 60 yrs old.

Thanks for your support. You could write blogs about Bonasi trees etc. I like the garden but my back and the computer are keeping me out of it at the moment and the midday Australian sun. Tom.

I know that gardening can be overwhelming at times. Yes. i was a member of a bonsai club in San Mateo CA. for about 5 years. You can always garden in containers they can be more manageable and if you keep the containers on the small side they won't be hard on your back. Best Wishes

Giuseppe, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Giuseppe.

Kyle, I got really sick for the past two weeks that I couldn't continue forward. Now I am starting to pickup where I left off. I need to write some content on my niche and that is my next goal. I am trying to figure out how to tie my niche with WA so that I can start make some money trickle in. Having to deal with shingles was not a fun experience. Hopefully in the near future things will change. I got to get to work now and thanks for checking in on me.

Hi Kyle, I just trying to make sense and meaning to all the info that one has to absorb. Because I am new its quite a challenge. I just take it one day at a time.

Kyle Premium
I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Giuseppe. :)

Hi Kyle, I watch your "Adding a New User" video. Many times now. I have taken notes to make sure that I add my self to all the pages and post as author. I refreshed my Manager site. How ever when I login. I am getting several different type of error statements> Like, Error the password field is empty. I don't understand why? Forbidden. you don't have permission to access/wp logmein.php. Why I don't understand? Error, the password you entered for username Joe is incorrect? I don't understand Why? And another but I can remember what it said.

My Gravatar hasn't excepted the email that I used. So, I have not been able to link my website. Its a mess and What do you recommend on the process to fix all of it.

Joe

I think that I have establish it correctly. New User is Joe (Author) the email address I used is gbconnecttech@gmail.com and website URL is, funinyoursmallgarden.com The problem that I am currently having is that I opened an account with Gravatar. When I go to log in I am using gbconnecttech@gmail. They are not recognizing this URL in there system. And so I used URL funinyoursmallgarden.com and they are also not recognizing this either. Is it possible to delete the account at Gravatar and log in from scratch?

I see you haven't created a gravatar account yet for that email account, at least you haven't added a personal image just yet.

You can check here when your gravatar has been set-up.

Here is some training on how to create a gravatar account. Hope this helps you out here.

I believe my Gravatar has finally been created. I currently having some difficulty with setting up Sociable. I tried adding Sociable to my review on Wealthy Affiliate, I am getting nothing on the search under Sociable. How old is the video? I found a Simply Sociable instead and am afraid to activate it.. Your video says to use Sociable plluging and on the Add New Plugins. Search Sociable and install and activate. Then scroll down the dashboard and select Sociable Options. I am not getting the same as the Video. Is there another latest update to this video?

This is the plugin I use on my websites and the one I recommend you use as well: It gets much better results than socialable and it is far less of a distraction to your visitors.

Carson the more I watch the videos the more I am absorbing. I also realize that you need to view the videos more than once because I pickup more when I review. I am setting a goal for myself to at least view all ten of the first lesson. This as you know take time. I lead a busy life and so I am trying to find the time to reach my personal goal.
