5 months of learning. 5 months of fun.
It's a good thing I wasn't looking for a quick buck when I joined WA. WA is a long term commitment with a steep learning curve. It takes patience and determination to go through the training. You need to find the time and balance within your personal life. In the beginning it's easy. As time goes on and you get more and more followers, you also get more and more mail. You make friends and they become a part of your daily life. You want to stay in touch with them and not be rude. It's fun. It's comforting. Friends around the globe. I have found that this interaction is taking up too much of my time at this juncture. Again, I'm referring to balance here. I'm in WA 5 months now and I still have not completed my certification. I feel that on a personal level it's more important for me to complete my certification. After all; I do want to earn a crust sometime in the future. Going forward I will devote 1 hour per day to e-mail. 3 hours to lessons. Rank in my opinion is for people who have their site built out and are getting some income from their site. When that is happening you now have time to blog and interact with the community. WA is a great community and they will always help you regardless of your rank. Concentrate on your certification. Rank will come later.
I mentioned a steep learning curve. Wow, is that ever true! I am learning, learning, learning. I had no idea of the complexities and nuances of the online world. WA spoon feeds me and helps me to understand it. I get frustrated at times, but who doesn't? All and all this has been a good ride. Thank you WA.
Fun with work: A little bit of my love for the beautiful flowers here in Ecuador. The bottom photo is of bougainvillea in great bloom. Sector Chipipe, Salinas, Ecuador. Best regards, Bob.
