Puzzles

Last Update: February 13, 2021

I've been thinking these past few days about puzzles. Not as in questions, but in the building of puzzles.

They're intricate and time consuming. All the pieces that are waiting to be put together to form a beautiful picture. Sort of like Wealthy Affiliate.

You have to start somewhere. I like to start by finding the corner pieces and sides. Like watching the first few training videos. Then put them together to form an edge. Coming up with a niche. It takes time to get these pieces to go together.

Then if you are like me, I sepearate the pieces by color. Starting to build your website. Now comes the fun part. Start finding the pieces to start building from the outside in. Adding who you are, your privacy policy.

Slowly but surely the pieces start coming together. Continuing to watch the videos and building your website.

Continuing ever so slowly to put the pieces in place. Adding your information stating what you know about your niche.

Then continuing to watch the videos wokring with your website while your puzzle starts slowly taking shape.

Adding plug-ins, a corner is done.

I haven't completed my training so my puzzle will have to wait as I continue the videos and building my website.

Maybe this sounded utterly ridiculous, but I thought it made sense.

I think it makes complete sense! I think getting the basics is like getting all of the outside pieces put together, so that you've got a framework into which all the other pieces fit. Each level brings more pieces until the final image is complete. What that image looks like comes from your niche. Great analogy!

Hi Phyllis
I use the same method for building puzzles as you do.
An apt analogy.
Thank you

There are puzzles where the same picture is printed on both sides of all the puzzle pieces. I've also heard of puzzles that are nothing but a single color. When I first started with WA, it seemed like these two types of puzzles, both very hard to complete.

I spent most of my career working as an IT professional. When I first started with WA, I figured I knew it all. I kept jumping ahead of the lessons, causing all sorts of problems for myself. I knew practically nothing about WordPress. I finally stopped doing things on my own and started paying more attention to the lessons. Things got much simpler at that point and I was able to start making progress on my "puzzles".

I was concered that WA had no phone numbers to call for help. But when I needed help from technical service, they proved to respond very quickly, usually within 15 minutes (which is less than the time spent on hold with a lot of other companies). More help with the puzzles!

So your puzzle analogy makes perfect sense. Keep plugging along and your puzzles will quickly complete!

Best

I still have a long way to go yet. But little by little I intend to see it thru and then start a new one, and so on, and so on.
