About Richrivera
Joined February 2016
I'm the father of 2 and grandpa of 5, been married 43 yrs. Was a carpenter bytrade til I had back issues and need a business of my own, don't like a boss and want something that grows. My hobbies are woodcarving( walking sticks), songwriting, singing, guitar playing and and spending time with two grand boys before they grow up. Love to learn and create. I see a lot here to learn.

Very Greatful.

Well, here I am 3 wks in and still figuring out navigation but I've learned a grip of stuff about my pc. Even more so from fellow WA's. I value this community and everybody in it. So, fortunate to have run across a member who pointed the way. I'm grateful today, a tad behind but very grateful. Thanks everyone

I'm Having a Lot of Fun!
.
Hey all, I hope everyone is doing well. I'm having a lot of fun, learning loads of information on a variety of subjects. It's been 44 days and I have a site up but am filling in content and doing a whole lot of research. When I can't go on without blowing a cork, I read and respond to e-mails or look over something that I need to learn. I got to say, with out the help from all of you, I'd be lost most of the time. Now, it's just some of the time.

I Know Better.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one having a tough time but I know better by the questions being asked. After my last rant, I promised myself, I wouldn't complain again. It's nonproductive and gives others a foothold to go in that direction. Instead, when I hit the wall, I identify what I don't understand and find a training video on the subject. Watch it til I puke or understand it. Then go back and start again. It can be slow going but better than, not knowing. I bid you all a productive week and see you around the streets of, Cyber City.

Thanks Sharon,welcome to WA, I'm working with images now in " be funky", almost ready for a walk before I need another computer. My son-in-law- was a stage manager for the production company that did the stage set-ups for Breaking Bad, but I'm not much for TV, but he used to give me the hats and T-shirts. Each season they were different so I got a bunch of that stuff, my grown up kids will either sell it or throw it away. Anyway, I wish you the best here at WA and welcome to the community. See you around town.

Everyone finds those damn road blocks at some time or multiple paths but no sign post in sight. Welcome to the world of internet marketing ; )

Try to find different tutorials on the same subject perhaps by different members and WA we all have different ways of learning. Sometimes we just need to see a subject from a different angle for the light to shine through.

All the best

Richrivera, I wouldn't worry about being 'a tad behind', we all cannot be on the same level: there will always be others who are greater or lesser than ourselves (Desiderata). The main thing is to focus on your own goals, get help when you need it and give it when you can. Like you so rightly said, WA is a great community.

Hi Rich
I liked your comments as I was walking around WA and looked you up - we have some commonalities - among them being our picture - I intend to update that but wanted to say hello to a fellow newbie - feels comfortable me communicating - would love to correspond - What I find is I want to spend more and more time as WA becomes more and more "smooth" - sounds like you are too

Best to you
Henry (Zidor)
Reply
richrivera Premium
Hey Henry, thanks for the follow , I'm following too. I've been meaning to get my picture up, and had a time with it. My challenge is the PC, among others but seems I have the ability to make the easiest tasks
difficult. Just got to go back and review until I get it. I hit the wall then figure out how to get over, under or through it. Then hit the wall............
I guess if it was easy, I'd be bored. So, I just keep on. I've got company this week from Seattle and don't know how long. But it's a brother (older), I've got seven and we're all still here. Like to visit as much as possible, but I catch up with you soon. Best of fortunes, Henry. See you on the backroads.

Hi, I just finished watching Kyle's video "How to Become an Expert in any Niche" and see you did also. I got so motivated I paid the annual fees and wanted to follow someone else who might have the same feeling. I got so excited I paid for a year, so will be around for awhile.

Hi Roger thanks for the follow and I'm following you now. Welcome to the community, I call it (Cyber City) I've had a construction company in the past
and the overhead ate me up. In the trades for 39 yrs, so my bodies all beat up but I don't want to be put behind the barn and have the weeds grow up around me. With WA you can have your cake and eat it too.
Now I can stay excited, have something to do and keep on till I drop.
I'll go read your profile, if you.ve got a site up I'll check it out and give you a comment. I'm trying to fill up my content now and get this PC to behave. Cheers Roger and talk to you later. Bye.

RogerHumbke Premium
Hi Rich. I bought a domain from WA, but haven't got it up as its only 2 pages and I am having trouble making the front page. The purpose of the site is to locate and communicate with relatives (Humbke or married to one) in North America. I certainly would appreciate comments. Not sure such sites could me monetized, but I suppose travel ads and book ads could one day be a possibility.

I see in your reply that you used the word "barn". When wasn't in it milking cows or shovelling sh.., I was behind it smoking. Those were the days when every one of my uncles smoked and drank.

My priority at the moment is creating valuable content towards my websites, I'm currently starting a platform for my second website publishing campaign to the Online Business Affiliate Marketing network. gives you a thought for success and helps me keep focused, have a look through if you also need extra motivation.

My websites provide accessible information to Start Up Online Businesses emphasising the concepts marketing and considers how important these elements are for a successful online business.

Also check out some important knowledge base training if you need the extra understanding of Marketing I hope it provides some valuable information to you and your business.

I look forward to following you too

Thank you for your follow Lilian. My focus at the moment is also high
quality content. My biggest challenge is computer navigation but one bit at a time is manageable. The psychology of the process is fascinating to me and helps fulfill my daily intention of learning something new and creating something new. I can use a little more understanding. I'll check out your links and if you have a website, I'd like to have a look. My site is being indexed now but I plan on going back and editing my few pages because I've learned some since I
bought a domain. I think I can do a lot better. Hopefully, I'll pick up some insight from your links. My best to you. Cheers.

Hello Rich, Welcome! Nice to meet you, I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hey Loes, its a pleasure, thanks for your comments. Your 25 point check list, is it at your profile page? If so I'll find it. I'm just now on my opening three pages and beginning to see, this business is nothing like I thought it would be. I love to write poems, songs and now blogs.
Never new what a blog was. A lot of folks can't cut it in that sense but I guess it's not for every one. Look forward to talk again and thanx much.

Hi, Richard. Thank you for adding me to your network. Wow, looks like you're passionate about music. We share the same passion. I love music, it heals the soul. I sing and write songs as well. Guitar playing is my drawback because don't know how to play any musical instruments. You could choose something related to music as your niche. Hope you're enjoying all the lessons and training and the wonderful community on top of that. Wish you all the success in life!

Thank you adel,I chose walking as my niche because I love to walk it clears the mind and keeps your body limber. I had hip surgery in august, gained 18 lbs and have to keep moving. Maybe a music niche
down the road. I keep working on songs and add them to my catalog
and someday I'll have a studio in my house and the time to play music with who ever and whenever I want.It does heal the soul and soothes the savage.there is no drawback, you could tap your foot or play the cajon, double bass. Thanks for best wishes, I'm not going anywhere I love the brotherhood and sisterhood and this business will work if we do. I did construction for 40 yrs and worked like dog but I love to create so I ran till I dropped. I can sit down and run this baby.
My best to you and some day maybe we'll get do some music, who knows. Keeps the mind nimble, this business. You'd think I was writing a blog here. Later, Rich

Hey Richard! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

I wanted to share with you a training I wrote here at Wealthy Affiliate. It's called "9 Tips for Internet Marketing Beginners" and it walks you through some of the things I've learned since joining Wealthy Affiliate over 5 years ago. Check it out below and leave a comment to let me know what you think!

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?". lol

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 at me! :)

Yeh Kyle, I love to walk, it's like meditation and I'm just blank. Takes the stress right out of me. So that's my niche and I'm sticking to it. Unless of course you advise against it for some reason. I didn't know if I should wait until I go premium so I have full resources. So I'm going to do a gang of research beginning when man first got off of all fours and try to put a little different spin on it, then compare when I figure out how and check Googles traffic out on the subject.My domain name; Walk 4less stress, walkthisway, walkforlife,walkyourcaresaway. something like that.
I had my hip replaced in august and I gained 22lbs so the timing is just right. Oh, national walking day is the 1st wed. of april. If you have got some ideas, I'd love to hear them Thanks Kyle

Sure, make that your niche then. The thing about the Internet is that there are 3 BILLION people online, so any niche is a very popular one.

I like your concepts for domains, I would avoid using a "4" in your domain, but I do like all the others with the "walkthisway" and the "walkforlife" being the most brandable.

Awesome niche Richard and it is always best to work within a space that you are passionate/interested in and this sounds exactly like that.

Hi there. I am happy you found me. I am newbie myself. I have learned a lot here. Now my website is half finished I must publish posts right away just to experience how it is to acquire traffic. When I am not busy I lose myself inside WA community. I am enjoying so much. Hope you do also. Ciao..

Yeh John,
Andygibby was the author of the training lessons but I went back and
couldn't find it. I guess I've seen a bunch of stuff and got mixed up.
I'm pretty sure Steve ' I"VETRIEDTHAT" has that info and I'll ask him and get back to you. A good way to evaluate a niche, I think.
Thanks, John

Hey Richard and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Richard, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

PS. Hit the reply button and say hi so I know you made it here OK!

Hi Steve, I'm not familiar with social media, when some one follows you, what's appropriate? Man you weren't kidding when you said a new person can be overwhelmed. I love to learn so I guess I won't be disappointed. I should thank Ultimate Home Products for leading me to your site and thank you for being there for me. I'll be making some navigational mistakes I'm sure, but I see every question I've had is already answered. thanks again. Rich

It's up to you who you want to follow here. I usually reserve my follows for people I find interesting and that post interesting and relevant content. The Follow system basically lets you filter out some of the noise.

Thanks Steve, I kind of figured that was the case but wasn't sure.I'll be asking next time I have a Derrrr moment. Was also wondering, an appropriate response to a follower. Is it a must? I know its the polite thing to do but how to do thirty at a time? I've taken your lead and come up with 5 top niches;woodcarving, songwriting,walking, geneology and carpentry(love remodels). Still deciding which ranks #1. Oh,Steve I just had to order new bank card to avoid being cleaned out. 7 to 10 days. Can I load a money card to upgrade if it doesn't look like I'll get the other in time to save 20 bucks. I'm going to watch
Andygiffy's #2 video on web building and build a web later today.
I'll probably be asking somthing. Until then, thanks. Rich

I'm not sure if a reloadable card will be accepted by the system. You would have to ask Kyle for the specifics. I can make sure you get the $19 offer though even after it expires if you are unable to upgrade before time is up.

As for responses, I really wouldn't worry too much if you miss them. Don't get caught up in all the menial tasks around WA. Focus on the training and building out your website. That's what is important!

Thanks Steve, Sound advice, I'll take it. I did ask Kyle about card. If a debit card won't cut it either, I'll get a credit card. Haven't had one since 2008 when my construction & remodeling business had to go, but I can do that. I saw mention of somewhere to research my niche but can't find it. Can give a heads up please, thanks.
