About POrtega
Joined July 2014
My personal philosophy is that "life is an adventure, have one" and that theme will be a thread throughout my work. I love to create fun and interesting fiction works, some for children, juveniles and young adults and some for adult readers. I also enjoy working with fabric to create custom clothing, and dabble in landscaping and interior design in spare time.

Here's a little background about me, and more importantly how important others are to me. I have a degree in English, so words are a large part of my life and how I see the world around me. My desire is to give back to the human community, especially to those who are or were not as fortunate as I to receive a higher education.

I have a heart to see everyone's lives enriched and prosperous in all aspects of human living, but understand that our choices each day determined our tomorrows. I want to encourage and/or challenge others through a website blog so that the reader may take something from the site and hopefully effect a positive change to society.

Hi Pamela,

Thanks again for visiting my website and giving me those tips. They were very helpful.
I visited your website and it is soooooo clean. I do not know how to get mine to be that way. You aced it. That's awesome.
One tiny observation.. under your WA review, the TRAINING/TOOLS OVERVIEW section, point #2 starts on the right of the page while the others are on the left. That's minor.

I love your website! Great job.

Hi Pamela, kindly review my webpage www.walkingforyourfreedom.com/about-me and www.walkingforyourfreedom.com/getting-started. I will appreciate your feedgack. Thank you in advance, Martha

Hi Martha, I viewed the two links and left comments. You definitely need more content.

The reader needs to know what you mean by "walking" for your freedom. I get the idea of going with Wealthy Affiliate, but I don't get what or how you "walk" for it.

Also the reader needs more info on what benefits they will find from Wealthy Affiliate. There is not enough information to really inspire readers to check WA out.

Its a great start - keep it up.

Pamela, thank you for your time and comments.
I named it "walking" in a figurative sense, because this is like a walking process. It is little by little. This is how I look at it. I will continue to improve it, although it seems overwhelming.
Regards,

POrtega Premium
Yes it does seem overwhelming at times, but just take a big breath, and if need be a "walk" about and clear your mind. It will help revive you. Best of luck, Pamela

Doing do diligence in studying and learning the business side of creating a website so that I have an excellent foundation to build my future income upon. Thanks. Started on the two free websites, one being the primary focus on setting up a domain. Now how to do that I'm still needing to know about. Thanks!
Reply
nathaniell Premium
So did you get your domain bought from namecheap yet? You don't have to right away, but if you plan to change from siterubix.com to your own .com domain there's no reason to wait.

Let me know if you get that set up.

"namecheap"?

I recommend you take a look at the PM I sent you when you just upgrade to premium. there's a video in there where I take you through the process of buying a domain here and how to get it to WA.

Found it and have purchased my domain, transferred the website to my domain and created an email account. The instructions from WA is invaluable, thanks for the help.

Very serious about this, if I don't do something different in my life I won't get any changes to my situation. So I am working hard to get a good website up and learn all the aspects of creating good content. Looking forward to the video tonight.

Hey, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. I know that when I first joined WA I got serious information overload. I didn't really know where to get started or what exactly I was meant to be doing.

If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's a good place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of what online marketing is, and how to build a successful website. Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

If you're seriously lost or need help with ANYTHING, drop me a message on my profile or ask someone in chat :) Live chat is an awesome tool and there's usually someone that can solve your problem right away!
