My First Two Months at Wealthy Affiliate

Last Update: June 04, 2018

I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for not quite 2 months and I am excited about all I have already accomplished. I realize that I may be progressing slowly for some,but I would rather consistently ply along and internalize all that I am doing. I also have many other interests and obligations as most of you do as well. But I am thrilled with all I have learned thus far. The training I have already received is very well done. I really appreciate the videos in the training. If I forget something, I can go back and watch it again. I also love the help search bar next to the WA logo. I have found more recently all sorts of additional videos by other WA members. Those are also extremely helpful. A special thanks to all of you memebers who personally helped me as I was getting started--and still continue to help when needed.

My accomplishments have been much the last month or so. I am now about to enter level 3. Things are getting more excited all the time. My website is up and running, and I am enjoying all the writing about my niche. From the picture I have added here you can perhaps imagine my niche. I have chosen storybook dolls. These are dolls and animals that are inspired by fairy tales, children's books, or classics. I also plan to write about some of these classic fairy tales, etc. and share some insights I have gained while pondering them. It is great to know hpow to best create content and share them on social media platforms. Images were a challenge at first because they were not coming out quite right in their overall appearance. I had a battle with cropping along the way, but I think I have subdued that hickup. For those of you new and still wondering about images, keep in mind that I do not think they can be modified once you hit post. Of course text can always be modified and edited as well as deleting images; but cropping must be done beforehand--before publishing in Wordpress. Just a headsup for all those who are knew. My saying this may save you the hickup I experienced.

My goals in the next 3 months are to get a post published at least once or twice a week and to start using affiliate marketing within my website. In the next 6 months I hope to be generating income from this website both by linking to Amazon or other such places as well as the dolls and animals I create myself. Hopefully by then I will have created enough posts to be more established and can begin incorporating other techniques for online business success.

Special thanks to all the friends I have met here who have put up with my pestiferous questions along the way. I look forward to the many others of you I have yet to meet. Thanks Carson, Kyle, and you Ambassador members. You are a tremendous blessing!

What a nice niche you have chosen Rob. I love the classic tales both when I was a child and reading them to my children.

Best of luck!

Michelle :)

You are moving at the right pace for you, and that's all that matters. This is an education, not a race, and it's far more important that you learn the material than hit some fake deadline. Keep up the great work!

Nice blog Rob. Remember this, your progress is your progress, you are not here to Impress anyone, so if its slow by your standards, then thats how it is, because your are building key foundations, which will serve you well over the next few weeks, months and years

The longer you are part of this community and taking in the training, the more you will realise that everything else just pails onto a cocked hat & believe me, in 18 years I have seen it, been part of it and thought I was a good internert marketer, which I am.

What WA has taught me and continues to do so on a daily basis, is to become a SMART marketer... Thats the main difference

Thank you so much for saying that. That truly encourages me; it is quite consoling to hear you say that. (Yes, I know I did not audibly hear you, but it sure rang true in my head as I read this.) I will press on. Inch by inch, life is a cinch; yard by yard it's very hard.
