About PaulaLloyd1
Joined July 2016
I am a nurse in Florida where I live with my husband of 20 years. We have no children but do stay active in our niece and nephews lives. I love the water but hate the heat, enjoy raising plants and decorating. We spend a lot of time going to yard sales for those special finds that can be turned into treasures. I love to learn new things and have been on WA before but got to overwhelmed. But I am back and will surely be needing a lot of help from other members. i am not very computer savvy but can get around alright, so here I go. I hope to learn enough that I can help another "newbie" at some time in the future. By the way I am a baby boomer and am happy to see I have a lot of company.

Hi Paula,
Welcome to WA. I also love going to garage sales. It is amazing what you can find on a Saturday morning! :)) I was overwhelmed at first too so I know how you feel. But just take it slow and be patient. It really does get easier! And we are all here to help where we can.

Blessings,
Lynn

i have been told this past weekend, focus on what you know you can do, versus what others do, so if blogging isn't easy, look for other ways of communicating, so I am investigating such.

Maybe that will help someone else. I was so busy thinking something might be wrong with me, that I couldn't do this or that.

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you Robert-A for the follow. It should be called leading!. Yes I am quite aware of the time and effort this endeavor is going to take. But I'm not a quitter,not this time around anyway. So, I will see this thru to fruition with the help of those that have offered and much hard work. As soon as my new computer is ready I'll be back up and will read your blogs. Its hard to follow and read everyone's work of course, but will do what I can do. Thanks again and here's to WA!

Hello Paula and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
You will probably know by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
So can I suggest you browse some more of the 250+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck creating a site or anything else, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

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! :)

My niche is sunless tanning products. A lot of promotion opportunity and a lot of content ie: safety ,affordable, and does not turn you orange! Whatcha think? I have a lot of ideas for niche. I'm in the medical field, over 50, and a shopaholic! lol . Thanks for your help. Can you look at my website setup and let me know If it's ok. A lot on the video didn't add up to actual production.

Sure, I can take a look! What's the website URL?

Thank you everyone who chose to follow newbie me! I know I will be asking a lot of questions just don't know which one to start with yet. Think I have a niche but cant choose a website design. Heres a question, Do I need permission to use a products name on my website if I am promoting it?

I have a question about a niche I chose in setting up my website. sunless tanning products. BEST sunless tanning products. I have read that using Best brings more traffic to your website, is this true and is my choice a valid one.? I have some products to promote and a lot of content. What do you think?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
I don't think that "best" will increase or decrease traffic overall. You can use it in your domain name without a problem though, and it may help you rank for that specific keyword (best sunless tanning products). I don't however, think it will boost rank for individual pages that you write in the future.

If the domain is available, go for it! That sounds like a very cool niche to get into!

I am a little concerned about my website. It does not look like the video as far as the set up instructions. I did not have 3 options for plug-ins, like the video showed and that log-in keeps coming up. Am I supposed to change my password every time I log in? I am a little confused right now, could you please check out my website and see if I did everything right?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You shouldn't have to change your password every time you log in. Maybe clear your cookies and see if that works. Your website will not look exactly like Kyles, but it should have the three plugins. If you are missing a plugin for whatever reason, you can add it yourself: Which plugin are you missing?
Reply
PaulaLloyd1 Premium
It's the anti spam plug in that is missing. The all SEO plug in is there along with the 2nd one. It also states that I need to add 2 plug ins for the theme I chose. So I added them. Mistake or no?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Oh, you don't need anti-spam anymore. WA takes care of that behind the scenes.

The plugins your theme asked you to add are optional. It sounds like they are tied to the theme, so aren't required to do the WA training.

Thank you for your welcome. I do have a question for you. Do I need to have any certain operating software or hardware on my computer to be successful? I still am operating from a desktop, will be updating that soon and am still on Windows 7,with the option of going to 10 for free. I am not very computer savvy but I want this to work and am willing to put in the work but want to know if I have the right tools to start. Thank you, Paula

Nope, you won't need any special software. Everything we use will be web-based, so as long as you can connect to the internet, you can access it. Using Google Chrome for your browser is recommended!
