About PatrickM1
Joined September 2016
Well I finally took the plunge and joined WA. Seems like an authentic place to learn about affiliate marketing, all while building your own website.

I invested many hours and combed many websites in search of the perfect educational tools to build my own blog. Adapting a quote attributed to Mark Twain, “the longest winter I ever spent was the summer on the Internet”, researching blogging and affiliate marketing.

I’ve never really had much of an appetite for sales and marketing, however I do enjoy sharing my ideas and interests with others and I’m hoping that this educational experience will allow me to do just that.

My education and background is in banking and finance and my passion is in analyzing data and solving problems in order to make the best financial decisions possible when it comes to saving money and maximizing return on investment.

I’m eager to see if I can translate this knowledge and apply it somewhere in the finance niche, although I am open to other possibilities.

Looking forward to the experience.

Hello Patrick. Thank you for following me, I am following back. I hope you are doing well here at WA!

I like your adapted quote above...I was dreading this summer since I knew I wanted to work on my site but I live in Alaska and summers are precious! I hate to waste any of it! It will be much easier to focus on my site during the long, cold and much darker winter months!
PatrickM1 Premium
Hi Jessica - I hope you are doing well here at WA too. I've heard wonderful things about Alaska and the summer season. I can understand you wanting to take full advantage. Have a great winter season and have fun working on your site.

Patrick, where were you in 2007-08 and following? That was 10+- years ago. I was one of those that got their lunch eaten; and some of my dinner too.

But, it opened my eyes and while I was rising from the ashes, I found WA; the prince of the Internet. Now, still rising and building an online business that, hopefully, will be immune to bubble bursting; no guarantees but, we can hope.

Here's wishing you much $uccess.

Hello Patrick,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Patrick, hope you don't mind if I ask you a question, from Williams thread about themes over the weekend - you mentioned a MH magazine theme with 2 sidebars which is what I am looking for. When I search in wordpress there are numerous different types of MH magazine themes, example magazine lite / sportsmagazine / food magazine etc. Would you be able to let me know the actual name of the theme that provides the 2 sidebars please?
Many thanks in advance
PatrickM1 Premium
Hi Paul - I started with the free version of MH Magazine and liked it so much that I upgraded to MH Magazine lite. It cost $49 dollars for the year with support and updates, so I felt it wasn't going to break the bank.

If you go to their website you can find 12 different live demos. Those Demos can be replicated to any of the theme designs you mentioned above (so really 12 theme designs in one). I have actually played around with a few on my site and settled for Demo 3 which has the 2 sidebar format and you can follow the theme layout to get the same affect.

Once you have their standard format up (demo 3), you can play with the widgets to fine tune the look that you prefer. Keep in mind there are some limitations and the lite version doesn't provide as much flexibility as professional.

Here is the URL to the layout for Demo 3. Let me know how it turns out.
