About RDunkinson
Joined March 2017
My name is Ruth. I live in a house with my husband, three dogs, and three cats. We overlook a mountain scene in the country of Marshall, NC. I like to write, I like to read, I have a rock hobby where I make stone necklaces. I am now retired after owning a bed and breakfast.
I was born in New Jersey, raised in New York, lived in Miami and now happily live in the mountains of North Carolina.

I have only been on this site for four full days and am amazed how many people have posted to my success. It is heartwarming to feel accepted in such a short time. I hope I can live up to all the nice comments. I do believe I have found a home here at WA after years of searching for a site that I could learn from and understand I think I finally found it.

Hi Ruth! Welcome to WA. It's a friendly nice place to be. I live in NJ, at the shore in a town named Brick. Raised in Staten Island NY. SOunds like you like NC. That's great. I am new to this also, only been here 2 months, but following the teaching step by step, I am getting somewhere, not rushing, as I feel having success takes some and patience. I'll be following your progress, which Iam sure you will make!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

I have decided on my niche but where I am having a problem with is my website name. I must change that and with all the advice I have received I still have not figured this out. The name I originally chose has nothing to do with the domain name. I did not realize at first that they should compliment each other. I certainly would appreciate help.

Another thing I am curious about, and I have not found it yet in the lessons is the RANK. It goes up and down. What influences this number?

Thanks so much for watching over me. I am struggling a bit, slow to understand it all and there is truly so much, but I am enjoying it and moving along.

Hi Ruth, unfortunately domain names cannot be changed if you purchased them, you can however edit the title inside it, but it will not change the domain name.

As for rank, it goes up and down depending on your activity in WA. It is not an indicator of success so I would not worry about this :)

Hi VitaliyG,

I'm so sorry if I said domain name I meant WEBSITE name.
That is the site that I have named inappropriately.
I'm satisfied with my domain name.

Everything else is going along smoothly.

Once again thank you for your help.

Oh no problem, this is an easy fix:

Head to dashboard --> appearance -->editor and in that area, there is a section that should say something like heading or sub heading, where you can edit/change your name there. Make sure to save the changes.

Thank you so much. I'll go and do it.

Hi, Ruth!

Welcome aboard.

It's a pleasure to meet you. I lived in Burnsville, NC for a time and often visit Hot Springs. It's lovely country up there and I hope to move back. I'm in central SC at the moment.

Thanks for the follow. I followed you back.

All the best,
Gary

Hello Ruth,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hello Ruth. Your life sounds so incredible. We have a few common threads. I live in a house with my husband and three dogs, too. LOL They are my hobby. It sure must be very beautiful living in the mountains. I'm glad to meet you and hope that you reach your goal with WA.

Good to hear from you, Jen.
Once I can decide on a domain name, I'm thinking of two futurefortunes and thisandthat. Looking for suggestions and comments. What do you think?

Hello Ruth, so sorry for not replying to you sooner. I was offline for 3 days being sick for the first time in 30 years! So, I won't complain and my health regime must be working and maybe I'll be good for another 30 years, haha.
I hope that you're doing well and staying happy!
Well, I'm more focused on the animal field and going with Dogs in a variety of topics.
First you need to pick an interest and then name your domain based on that interest.
Then you'll decide what product would be good to sell. Looks like Loes has a real helpful tool to offer, too. I just may go check it out, too.
Hope to hear from you soon! Warm Thoughts!

I hope you are feeling well again. Being sick tends to knock your schedule off.
I did decide on a domain "babyaccessoriesplus" but I made an error with my webpage, although I just learned I may change that.

I'm still learning. Each day I fell I am getting closer to working on my Wordpress site.

Our weather is warming in North Carolina.

Pleasant day to you.

Ruth

Thank you Ruth for your warm reply! I really like your topic! And the Plus is genius! You have a valuable name in itself!

Well, I don't have much of a schedule but being the primary caregiver in this household becomes obvious when I am out of operation....lol Between cooking for the 3 huskies and keeping my husbands weight loss regime enforced and all the general house chores, I think they noticed how much gets done when it "stopped getting done". LOL Yes, my husband lost 50lbs last winter and then another 60lbs this winter with a few more to go.
During our April to October seasonal business he maintained his weight.

He has a real close relationship with food. I do too but managed to keep it under control as I could eat more than him. It's better to control than to fix that's for sure.

So after the past 8 years of seeing him over 300lbs he got the will power to put his life into my hands. He followed my created health improvement regime. I call it the Arctic Health For Life Plan. This plan is the most basic simple logic almost no thinking plan ever. It's not even a business, it's just a personal thing I put together for my sweet husband. People ask him how he did it and he says, it's my wife's Arctic Plan she created...haha

I'm not a nutritionist but did lots of research. And I helped dogs to loose weight including my old Arctic who lost 25lbs. That goes with my Arctic Therapy business. So, I do take pleasure in helping those who are willing to do their part. Maybe I'll find a way one day to sell it. I just don't know if a person or creator has to have some sort of license or whatever to sell such a program. I know we can promote other programs that are on the market like weight watchers and such. But, I'm not a fan of most programs and that's why I created my own.

So my dear colleague Ruth, I wish you a great day and a great week. I'm sure that you'll get your site rolling very soon. I'm still just gazing at it right now and thinking. Maybe I'll put some action to it in a few days. Do stay in touch and I'm really interested in your progress!

Cheers! and Warm Thoughts....Hugs and Kisses to your pet family!

Wow, you were able to do wonders for your husband, that is amazing. He should be very proud of you.

Sorry, it takes me a while to get back to you trying to answer so many posts. This site is a bit demanding, but it is fun. I am just getting the feel of it. In a week, it is hard to learn all the ins and outs.

I do appreciate your note and would certainly like to stay in touch.
Curious where you are living does the Arctic health program give any clue?

Have a great day and see what you can get done on your site.

Fondly,
Ruth

Hello Ruth,
There is absolutely no rush in replies. It's all in fun and enjoying new people. Yes, there is a lot to absorb and I didn't even complete the first level before buying the first month. I learn better without deadlines. I just bought my domain yesterday. My About Me Page and Landing Page is still on Microsoft Word as I am fussy. Going slow and taking my time. Once we get to a certain level I think things will speed up.
Either way it will get done.
Knowing how you are progressing is a delight. So, I look forward to reading from you anytime.

Arctic Therapy 4 Pets is my Canine/Equine Laser and Massage mobile service. And just for the Hobby of it I named the Weight Loss Health Regime The Arctic Health Plan. Arctic Therapy is named after my late 16 year old Husky. He was my influence for the Laser/Massage practice. I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It isn't the Arctic but it can get pretty cold and my huskies love it.
I hope that you progress well this week.

Thank you for keeping in touch. You're Nice!!
Jen

Hi Anita,
I love NC. I am working toward making this work. Now if I can decide on a suitable domain name. I'm looking at future fortunes or this and that. What do you think?
Ruth

anitaturner7 Premium
I do believe that future fortunes is the exact term to use! I am a few weeks in and I see the potential even more than I did on day one. However, I do understand that the process is going to take time. Google and I need to cultivate our relationship over the next few months. I can see steady income generating within the next year. Feel free to private message me anytime! I don't have all the answers, but I am willing to share whatever answers I do have.
