New friends. Who can ask for more? Well, guess who... ;-)

Richard, world traveler, entrepreneur, adventure-seeking, inventor and IT consultant. I should also say 'time traveler' as I've been working with computers since 1973, a dinosaur that skipped extinction...

I've gathered a lot of coding, graphic design, and video skills and resources. Now it's finally time to make some money, learning and collaborating in WA.

Feel free to follow me on FB, I have almost 5000 'friends' but I intend to do a cleanup soon. I also use Pinterest, you can know me better by my pins if you want.

Hola Richard,

I'm a newcomer into the WA platform and while following through the first training levels, I´ve been thinking of the idea of creating content either in Spanish or in English (or maybe both) and about its pros and cons.

After few searches in the platform, I came to a post from you which was somehow linked to that. May we connect and share few words about your experience?

Gracias y saludos!

I'm sorry, Tom. I don't know what the problem is because I don't know which context are you talking about.
Please try to ask your question to the community being more specific.

Hello,

People can still message you are even if they're not following you so I'm a little unclear as to the benefits of unfollowing people. I've read several posts over my time here and many have said to follow the top-ranked people against in an effort to get guidance and learn the ropes. It's not like you see everyone's day-to-day life and what they have for dinner I following them here (as you might see if you follow them on Facebook).

Anyway, I think I followed you because you had a post that I found helpful or interesting. That may be why others have followed you in the past as well.

Thanks for your message, Lynne. What I find overwhelming is 150 blog notifications in my inbox, knowing that they are from people I follow, but I will not have time to devote at least 15 minutes to read and reply... and this is frustrating.

Another alternative Richard is to adjust your Email Notification Settings located at the bottom of this page:

Yes, Jay. I'm aware that setting is available thanks to a recent comment, but it does not address the problem of allowing notifications of the people I'm interested in (that's why I follow them, right?)

Thanks for the follow Richard.

OMG reading the messages between you and Glen makes me feel like a genuine dinosaur.

I missed getting into computers very early on when I did badly on a test for potential programmers. I got something like 97% and they were looking for people with 99% Who knows what would have happened if I had gone back and checked my answers.

Life's like that and these little things often remind me of the movie "Sliding Doors".

Hope you find your sponsor - down whichever rabbit hole they are hiding.

Dear Lawrence, I don't care if I don't find my sponsor at all. If my blog allowed me to contact friends like Mark, Glen or yourself, let's celebrate!
Life is good.

Hey Richard,

I've been following you but just jumped on to your profile after reading one of your posts.

Great Profile by the way!

I'm glad I'm not the only dinosaur.. I'm right there with you started with the Timex Sinclair. You must have been punching cards.

When I look back and then look at today I'm astonished at what we now have. It's just amazing. I love technology but I have a love for Internet Marketing just as much.

I remember things like seeing Mozilla being demonstrated at the state fair. Being the eggnet coordinator back in the 80's and dialing into ARPA Net and hacking around the colleges.

Fun times!

Thanks for your kind words and good memories, Glen.

I started punching cards in 1972... no calculators at that time.
I designed and manufactured a 300 baud modem back then...

Now my playground is the Internet, but we need money to buy our toys, don't we? so here I am ;-)

Let's keep in touch.
Cheers

Good Morning Richards,

Thank you for the follow. It is good to read that this dinosaur is still alive and kicking.

Last year I wrote a post on the Spanish priest and the World Library. Great place where you can find unusual things. In case you do not know it, have a look. www.wdl.org

I will hop over to Pinterest to have a look at you.

Hi Richard hope you are well and enjoying the weather. I have probably past by you 20 times this past year as in the past 2 months alone I have been to Alicante Airport on my way back to the UK to visit Family. You're ranking intrigues me as your time with WA is relatively short so I hope to pick up loads of tips from your blogs etc. Look forward to your posts etc and wishing you a successful and healthy 2019.

Let's share some tapas next time you visit Alicante!
My ranking may be due to an average of 12 hours a day 7 days a week exclusively focused on WA. I am sure that this community is a keeper ;-)
My best wishes to you

Congratulations Richard. Ambassadore I see, was it Christmas day? WOW. Top effort. Great to see.
I've been a little busier, doing more: My first 10 starters Dec 1 to 25. Promotion on a broadcast system desktoplightning.com/shadrak to 5000 people each 48 hours. All like minded, so WA is an offer that will really help them.

Hello Richard And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined and with all your previous online experience you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 460+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

Hi Richard, wow you have achieved more in 10 days than I have in 6 weeks, congratulations, I'll follow your progress and hopefully learn from it.

My problem is not having a technical backrgound (scared of these computer things!) so things are slow for me although have written over 20k words on my niche.

Hasta pronto

Hello Richard ... thank you for the follow. Working with computers since 1973. What kind of computer was that back then? My first computer was a Compaq portable with a tiny 7" screen. Actually we called them luggables because they were so freaking heavy ... 60 lbs as I recall.

I was with a small HP spin-off, start-up designing and building Yig Oscillators and Filters in the early 80s. Most of our focus was on Military contracts. As the Quality Assurance Mgr, I was writing many Qualification Test Procedures that became a crucial part of winning a contract.

We had only 4 of these Compaqs to be shared, but one of them was almost permanently parked on my desk. It used the very first version of MS Word and was immensely useful for preparing Quality Test Procedures.

You have a great skill set that should have you hitting the bricks running here at WA. Joined February 2015? I assume this is your second time around. Did you have a little SOS back in 2015?

Any way it looks like you are now making up for lost time. I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Thank you, Dennis. back in 1973 I learned Fortran and I practiced with punched cards, didn't have access to a terminal ;-)
If I remember correctly it was an IBM 360... with 64K RAM!
But my first computer was a toy, a wired matrix to answer questions with lamps back in 1964
Good old times. However, I prefer my Thinkpad and my iPhone!
I can't remember how I came here in 2015, I read an article somewhere 2 weeks ago and I followed a link. That's how I'm here. I tried to register and my email address had been taken, I recovered my password and I became premium because I found $19 deal attractive.

My best wishes to you too.

I took a class in college learning the basics of Fortran, and after punching the input cards we fed them to an IBM 360. The digital revolution has come a long way since those days. :-)

Hello and welcome to WA Premium!! You will not regret your decision to go Premium!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible, and you won’t find anything like it, anywhere else!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it. Take my word for it, it’s not worth it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome! Be amazing!! And be successful!!

Welcome to WA PREMIUM
You've made a life-changing decision. If you stick with it, over time your greatest dreams will come true. Can you imagine what it was like when the first owners of telephones placed them? They were cash machines.

You purchased a cash machine when you chose to go premium. You have proven to be a true entrepreneur and a goal setting winner. Please don't forget to FOLLOW BACK AND LIKE OFTEN. In fact, thank you in advance for the follow back and the like!

Your ranking will improve when you comment and like just like in the real world when people follow and like your site will move higher in the search engine. Follow the training to get a deep understanding of the internet. So, again, thank you in advance for the following. Enjoy and take it easy.

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask..
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
cheers

Welcome to WA;

I think if you look around WA you will see there is much opportunity here. There is step-by-step instruction on how to set up a business, how to maintain a website, and how to get visitors and prospective clients to visit your site.

There is also a helpful community of thousands of interested people anxious to help.

We do not compete with each other here as generally we are all working in different niches.

Finding financial success does take time and effort and in that regard is similar to any other business.

But this is a real opportunity that over time can prove to be another source of income with very little start-up cost.

Dave.

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Ricardo and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)
