This Post Is Dedicated To Two Wealthy Affiliate Members Thank You
Wealthy Affiliate Members are amazing, and in this post I want to honor two of them. In my language we have a proverb that says, you should not wait until the cow is dead to say that it used to produce lots of milk. Basically what this means is that, if somebody has done something good, then you should let them know, and thank them.
Another meaning of this proverb is that people in my country have this thing where when someone passes on, they come and say how great that person was, but when the person was alive, they never said a word about the said person's greatness.
Come to think of it, I think in our culture we are scared of dead people so even if the person was horrible, they still say that the person was great. I remember a case where someone was in their last moments, and they said, when I go, don't you dare say I was great, tell people the truth about what you thought of me.
OK, What Does This Have To Do With Wealthy Affiliate Members? Let's Get Into The Post.
A while ago, a member of Wealthy affiliate who goes by user name Twack Made a post here at WA, I would have liked to link the post but I was not able to find the post on his profile because he has so many posts here.
Anyway, in that post he talked about how people in olden days used to leave posters, and business cards everywhere to give their business exposure.
And he talked about leaving our blog links anywhere we are able to, so we can give our blogs exposure.
I commented on that post and told Twack that I would take his advice and leave my links wherever I can, since then I have been following his advice, and it helps a lot, because with blogging exposure is everything, being able to get people to read your content, is what its all about.
So I Would Like To Thank Twack For That Great Advice.
The second member I want to thank is a member who goes by user name Ahimbe I read a post by Ahimbe where he was talking about the travel niche, He gave tips on how to start a travel blog.
At the time I already had my plate full and I did't think I could start another blog, but I saw a void And I was determined to fill it, see as many of you know, I live in Greece, and to be specific I live on the Greek island of Crete.
This being one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe and world at large, I saw that the bloggers who were blogging about the island were not stationed at the island. So I remembered Ahimbe's post and I decided to Crete a website.
I Didn't Want To Create Just Another Travel Blog
I bought a domain, and started working on the website, I wanted to create something different, I did not want to create just another travel blog, where I talk about best places to visit, the best food etc. Although if I wanted to, I could have created a travel blog and review different things, I mean the island is quite big and one can create a whole website just going to different places on the island, and talking about those places.
But I wanted to also target the expats who live here, by providing them with information, in English, because most news outlets here are in Greek. I also wanted to target those who want to move to the island.
And of course I wanted to give the tourists the kinds of tips they can only get from someone who lives on the island, someone who talks to the locals and know what offends them. For example, since the Greeks are super religious, they get super offended when tourists disrespect their places of worship.
Tourists Need Tips On Visiting Worship Places In Greece
I am able to speak to the locals and ask them what the tourists should do, or how they should behave or dress when thy are visiting churches, and monasteries in Greece.
So the reason I want to thank Ahimbe, is that he is the one who inspired me to start the blog, and now its got almost 50 posts, and I am constantly getting organic comments from people asking for help and suggestions.
I have also made a couple of sales from the blog, so I think its got potential.
Thank You Ahimbe
