About Robert-A
Joined September 2014
Hi Everybody. My name is Robert and I'm a Scot who lives in our capital City of Edinburgh. I was born and raised in the countryside and spent a big chunk of my working life on the land. Made redundant in my late 30's I went back to college as a mature student and then on to university where I gained a degree in Business Studies/Business Administration. From there I went straight into the Civil Service, working for our government. I've been working with computers for many years and have also been earning a living as an online mentor/tutor for a few years.

I used to have over a 100 websites (some Wordpress in the early days of mobile devices) I created myself, but I sold a lot of them coz that's what I mainly did. I must add that since joining WA in 2014 I have given it up to concentrate on my endeavours here instead, and so far I believe I'm doing quite well.

I make good enough money from the internet most of the time and try my best to help others achieve the same level and beyond of the success as I have.

Since joining Wealthy Affiliate I have contributed in a positive way and have published hundreds of blogs on the varied aspects of earning an income online. I should add, the information within these blogs is based on my own experience and lots of research so don't take my word as absolute gospel. I'm sure there are other WA members who have more internet marketing knowledge than I do, and its always best to get a second opinion, is it not?

Hobbies/Interests: Writing, Painting, Cycling and just being outdoors.
I also like tigers and would love to go to India and see them in the wild.

I appreciate you taking the time to read this short Bio.
Have a great day.
Robert Allan

I have saved every associates blog and questions I their folders I know I will indeed start to study yours. I read the one on how to rank high. I'll admit this one is very meaty. I will have to read it and take notes to cram into this thick head. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge. They say experience is the best teacher so why not listen to the EXPERIENCED!

No probs Billie.
Lots in my blogs that will teach you a thing or two.
Careful of information overload though.
Have a great Sunday.

Thank you again. What do you paint ? I just started my second still life of roses and butterfly. I still prefer the looser landscapes and old barns. These old barns are going to only be seen in paintings and photos. They are becoming scarce here in Missouri.

I told you already. I haven't painted in over 30 years.
Portraits were my speciality and of course our beautiful Scottish countryside and widllife.

Old age comes to us all Billie so you got to laugh

Better than greetin' as we say.

You know what they say - laugh and the world laughs with you but cry and you cry alone.

Now I'm off home to make myself some eats then maybe a wee while on WA later then a wee bit telly before bed.
You take care.

Yes it does if we're lucky. I'm very lucky. My health is ok and I enjoy doing things for and with my daughter. Our outing the 1 st is taxi to Dr office then across the highway to Wal-Mart. I get my hair done and she shops. Hope to go to a close restaurant for girl's day out then home to get everything into the house. When we leave Wal-Mart has to restock. Lol
Jim puts it all up and we're popped. Coffee and nap. We do this outing twice a month and really enjoy it. Getting old is great spending time with loved ones.
Have a wonderful weekend

Robert! Me again. I want to say that you are truly my mentor and that is why I want to send you all the PM. If fact, I have another one for you--it is a reply. Another "oops".

I have so much to do. Right now I am editing my content. I also go to paint and make sure my new images are the right size.
Anyway, as always, I am not in any hurry for your answer, I know a lot of people ask you questions.

just check back what I wrote on the PM as a reply.
Thanks.

Quickly, I ask the community, is my website seen in other countries? There is one man from Singapore who wants to buy a pair of jeans. He found it from my advertisement on Facebook.

Hi Judy, no probs about messaging me and I will reply.
I'm uptown in Edinburgh just now.
Monday is my busiest day with things to do, people to talk to and bills to pay.
I'm old fashioned that way and like to pay cash and get an actual receipt.
Catch you later and well done you if that guy bought the jeans from your site.

Hi, Robert. I hope everything is well with you.

I do not know if you remember me, but I made a colossal error, big time. Ha Leooemery gave a post about editing the permalink and I did fine with that. (I think) I went to the editor to draft first, then shortened the Permalink and clicked edit. I thought about some of my posts and pages that really needs editing. I thought I could change the publishing time to a date in another 10 days. I thought that would give me the opportunity to really edit for publishing. BUT, I went back to my website and it is not listed. It just was deleted and disappeared, lost! What can I do? Other posts also need editing and I believe have been published. I will not change the publishing date--will update on the other sites. What I want to know about that is: if I make the article much better, will the first time I published it be the one that will get ranked? Is it acceptable to click on the edit on the permalink and rewrite it? I really hope I did not lose my post permanently! Leoemery had a good lesson for that. I think I will ask him the question again too. It is one of my best posts too. I will get ranked again on that post. I clicked the export and back-up with --clone, but something was wrong with the restore or something and did not finish. Thanks

Hello Barbara and as you will know I'm in Scotland, UK.

I have never tried MLM and have no wish to do so and you are well out of it.
Most of them are scams anyway and definitely not sustainable.
(See pic)
Have a great Monday.
Robert

I have only started this on Wednesday last week and was under the impression that I would build my website then post it on www. Or does it just log itself on after a few days? Can I put up a website under construction sign or something I am having trouble just getting pictures onto it :)

No probs about your site being online, you just have to write articles or reviews etc etc.

You must have hit Publish at some time or another and that's why you have 2 entries online just now.

Keep taking the training and step by step, fully understand one step before moving onto the next.
You get stuck, you ask questions and you ask questions and you keep asking.
No such thing as a stupid one.
I will be going out for the day soon but get back to me later when you have a problem.

I was worried about those things too when I first started. What Robert said, go through the lessons, read them twice or thrice if you have to, take your time. Watch the videos over and over too. Little by little, things will make sense and will fall into place. As far as having things visible on your website before you are finished, you have the choice to save in Draft instead of Publish mode. That is what I did and still do until I have my content the way that I want it. In Draft, it will not show, in Publish it will. Hope this helps.
