Hi! My name is Rita, and I welcome you to my profile! ;}
I am here because I hope to determine if I truly have the desire as well as the necessary patience and skills to enter the world of online business at this time of my life!

Honestly only recently, two new rather annoying issues at hand have jumpstarted me into really considering this option. These two annoyances are my very self-centered and totally irresponsible roommates. They are so difficult to please placing constant demands on me and have no shame whatsoever in keeping me up all during the night at times if that's what THEY WISH TO DO. On the contrary, they just love sleeping all day long waking only to snack or for an occasional look out the window or a change from bed to couch or perhaps to lounge on some warm inviting spot in the sunlight. What a life!

Well, anyway, let's just say, I may as well find work here at home that I can do in MY allotted free time since I can't always rely on sleeping or conversing at normal hours on a routine schedule with these two. I know I am complaining, but understand I chose to keep them as much as they chose to stay with me. So I admit I am a glutton for punishment. Oh, and by the way, I will post pics of them soon. Emmy is the little grey and cream tortoiseshell; Iggy is the solid black with those big yellow-green eyes. They are brother/sister from the same litter as far as my son and I know...and they own me!!!

This is only the beginning of my story...

ok...to enhance what I wrote
I am retired and am thus looking to enjoy life now! I am also a widow, my children are grown, but I am also in need of occupying my time in a productive manner. I NEVER will outgrow my consistent and ongoing inquisitive nature and desire to learn, and am therefore interested in pursuing just this! It is perfect for me at this stage in life! I can do as much as I want, when I want!!
I am sorry, but I cannot give you numbers. I do not think in numbers, but if you wish, realistically, i would be happy with adding $100 - 400 per month to my income at first. It would be wonderful to stay on top of things and increase my income relatively!
I will make $1000 per month my goal!!
Thank you!!

Ok, Wendy. NOW I have a question! I am going along fine, but I am still stuck on trying to understand keywords. I understand how to research them, such as in using Jaaxy or our own WA tool. My issue is in understanding exactly what we DO with the keywords once we get them. Do we post them somewhere?? Where? I understand HOW we should attempt to incorporate one of them within the title of our blog title and perhaps once within its content, but I guess I don't understand then what? How do we continue using them thereafter? I am just not seeing the whole picture or maybe none of it! LOL! :)

Shall I say......H E L P? ? ? ? ! ! ! !

I was very confused about keywords for a long time too, so don't feel bad lol. You incorporate the keyword within the title and then within the first paragraph, and then just write naturally. You don't have to worry about the keyword anymore after that.

For example, say your keyword is "best gaming keyboard"

Title: Stop Searching - the Best Gaming Keyboard is Here!

Blah blah blah... have you been searching for the best gaming keyboard? blah blah blah...

There is a lot of advice on how often to use a keyword in your content, but I always have followed the rule of title, first paragraph then forget it. Sometimes it may pop up again naturally and that is OK but I never force it or think about how often to use it.

Thanks for the follow-up, Wendy! I really don't or didn't feel like I had an issue with keywords until I read Loe's article yesterday eve. LOL. Again, I won't go there again. I just don't think I am that advanced for my brain to process all of what she was saying, so I am better off not trying to at this time. My understanding is simple right now, and it works. It is exactly what you stated and what I learned and UNDERSTAND from Kyle. I am good to leave it alone.
I appreciate you noticing my little struggle there! :)

There's a lot of different and conflicting advice on keywords so I can understand. Unfortunately it can be confusing reading all the different member added training and blogs here, so I would recommend until you are a bit further along stick to the structured training. It will keep you focused and help avoid confusion.

OMG...
i just wrote a lengthy note back to you for help/advice on issues I was hoping you can help me with and left for a sec...poof! my draft was gone! ;(

Here goes again!
Okay. First, "my plan exactly" was my response to your last reply!

Now, recently I changed themes on my website because I thought mine was boring. i now have 2 issues which are:

1) On the front page of this new theme it offers a slider...never encountered this monster before. It and I had a tiny battle last night. it won. I think I am going to disable it today! I researched and know what it does, but on this theme I really don't see how it functions. I was unable to download my images properly. I don't care much about it. I read they can slow down your site?
At any rate, what I am more concerned about is there are two boxes on the front page that contain stock images and the titles of my posts . I have searched feverishly for the way to edit for placement of my own pics in these boxes to no avail. HELP??

2) Seems also since I changed themes or perhaps as I am learning and moving forward, my pages and posts are just not what I want them to be. NOW I SEE where I went wrong. I managed to place a link on one of my pages to a post that I wanted on that page, but the link is not right to me. I don't understand why I can't put a post on a page...yes I know...other people say the same thing. I really did not understand the solution other than put the link...
It seems there are pages for a reason, right? Aren't pages like chapters in a textbook or am I guilty of faulty reasoning??
my entire website looks all ---------- up to me, and I hate that, because I really LOVE my niche, my cats, and my idea in general.
Will you help me with some organizational plan?

Thanks, Wendy! I am possessed with getting this organized because my cats have so much to say!

My site is: For All We Love
Being Owned By Stray Kitties and Cats
forallwelove.com

Thanks for your time!
MEOW

Hi Rita,

I hate when that happens! Lol It's the worst

Sliders generally aren't necessary and they do slow down the page load time, so I agree you shouldn't have it activated. I'm going to assume you fixed the other issue because I'm not sure I know what you're referring to with the stock images?

I think your menu issue could be resolved if you created custom menus. They'll allow for you to add categories or place a specific page in a dropdown menu. For example, you can create a category "kitty psychology" and all the posts you categories as psychology can go under that menu heading.

I have a tutorial on custom menus within my YouTube channel, but it won't let me link to it here. If you want to drop me your email I can send you the link there. You can also search on your own within WA or Google on how to use them.

That should help you structure your framework the way you want. Let me know if you need more help though.

PS I did some extensive keyword research awhile back for the cat care niche because I have been interested in going into that niche for awhile... I just dont have time! lol. There are definitely lots of products to promote to earn money, so I don't think you made a bad choice if cats are your passion. let me know if you need help thinking of keywords or products

Oh my...

I think I get it! Finally, I may understand what a category is and where it is put literally.
Isn't it odd how each of us take a different amount of time grasping each individual concept when learning something new? That just fascinates me. I look at, I mean really pay attention to the questions/dilemmas people have concerns about, and I find such humor in it all. Here I am obsessing terribly over something that seems so simple to everyone else, and yet there's someone else not able to grasp one tiny concept that I think is so simple, and WHY in the world can't he/she get that?
Now...I am not being nasty, but I do have a rather distorted sense of humor. I am known for that within my family and friends. I generally laugh when I shouldn't. Ask my children.
Anyway, thanks,Wendy. Now if I knew what tags were for...
Hugs!
Rita

Oh by the way, I got rid of that 2nd theme also. That's why there was no slider nor those pesky stock images I tried like hell to get rid of! I am now the proud owner of Theme something??? All I know is I have put my own pics where i want them!

Here's a video on tags I never got into the habit of using them so I'm not sure how important they actually are.

I totally understand what you're saying, I get frustrated when people cant understand something I think is simple, but I just have to remember everyone is different and learns at their own pace. I got caught up on a lot of easy things when I was a beginner, and there's still a lot of things that I don't understand (you don't have to know everything to be successful!)

Anyway glad you fixed the theme! Yay!
