About RosanaHart
Joined March 2019
I'm a writer who has been doing affiliate websites for years off and on. (See my list with comments below.) At times I've made a good chunk of our typical expenses but for the past couple of years I haven't done much with my sites. Good to be getting back to them. Being an old hippie, I have less social security than most people. That's okay, I lived a semi-retired lifestyle for decades!

Most of my creative energy lately has been going into writing my memoirs as a series of short books, and for those I use my nickname / pen name Zana Hart. I'm currently finishing "LSD and Beyond: How Being A Research Subject Transformed My Life." The first two books are done and up on the big A. Will do marketing when this third one is up. It's set in 1964, right after I graduated from Stanford. BTW I have discovered that a lot of people in my age group (70s and even more) are still very sharp!

See the urls for some of my sites in the bottom right corner where the links are on anyone's profile page. Some comments, with the dot com removed since these links aren't live here:

Zanahart is my author site, and you can read bits of my books and see some photos. I moved it to be hosted here.

Findflashlights is a site I began as I began the training here at WA. Still small, but it closely follows the principles and guidelines covered here.

Hartworks lists most of my sites and my husband's. His are mostly about natural building.

Cordwainer-smith is about the science fiction of my father. It's a real mess and I will update it soon.

Simplegreenliving is my largest site.

Training-dogs is another large site.

I added Facebook at the end. I have to be there for a few reasons but I don;t linger.

Hi Rosana, Your bio is fascinating! Something jumped out at me as I read about the memoir/short books you are have written and are writing, like "LSD and Beyond: How Being A Research Subject Transformed My Life" -- have you ever reached out to Tim Ferriss, author of The 4 Hour Work Week? He has a weekly email/podcast in which he interviews people in many different fields, and from what I have read from Tim, I think your experience as a research subject in that area would be very interesting to him. It's a field he is interested in, I think -- just thought I would mention it in case there might be some interesting/helpful connections for you and helping to maximize your book sales on the "big A" :)

Thanks! Will add him to my list of contacts.

Hi, Zana Hart.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your network. I graciously accept by following you back.

Welcome to The Wealthy Affiliate Open Education Community.

I am pleased to make your acquaintance as a former (tail-end) member of the hippie generation and look forward to learning, sharing, serving and earning alongside with you as we all move forward here.

Ahh, the days and ways of Timothy Leary. Look forward to "LSD and Beyond: How Being A Research Subject Transformed My Life."

Should be a great read and journey down memory lane.

Warmest regards from Canada.

RosanaHart Premium
Luckily I wasn't on the Leary side of the continent. My mentors were around Stanford and I think a bit more measured in the approaches!
PMindra Premium
Hi, Zana.
None the less. One led to another.
Looking forward.

JonLake Premium
Thanks for the follow Rosana. It’s nice to meet you and feel free to connect with us further on the social networks shown at the bottom right of our profile.

We have also started to do some training tutorials here on WA which can also be found down there as well.
We look forward to reading your success as well as sharing additional marketing tips and strategies. If you need any help please feel free to ask

Jon and Debbie :)

Hello Rosana ... thank you for the follow. I remember commenting on a blog you posted a while back. So has your husband come around to the notion that WA is worth it, even if it's just for using the services that come with membership?

Sounds to me like you guys make a good team. Clicking on hartworks.com certainly proves that point. Clearly you are not here to learn how to build a website. But learning how to use your writing skills to increase traffic to your sites might be useful.

Let's see ... an old hippie graduating from Stanford in the early 60s. I played baseball at Cal in the early 60s. We had some great games against Stanford at the sunken diamond.

I hope WA meets your expectations.
RosanaHart Premium
No, he isn't wild about my spending money on things, but we have come to an understanding that it is what I am doing. Luckily, every now and then I get royalty checks from my father's science fiction and so I was able to go premium for a year thanks to royalties from Japan! Such a small world we live in, and that made it easier on my honey.

Your tip about writing and traffic is helpful.

Good ol' Bay Area. I lived in Sonoma County for many years, now NM.
NWTDennis Premium
Cost of living in your old area (collectively called Silicon Valley) is off the charts. I can understand why you choose to live in NM.

We started out in Silicon Valley. Lived in Redwood City, I was working for Raytheon Semiconductor and my wife was a teacher at Menlo Atherton HS. I got a job offer in Santa Rosa back in 1967 and haven't looked back since.
RosanaHart Premium
Interesting. I lived in Spain, then Berkeley while going to grad school, getting a Master's of Library Science which did me well in career activities. Geez, don't remember exactly what year I moved to Santa Rosa myself, with a job in the public library and later ran the Sebastopol and Guerneville library branches. But it was before an earthquake in Santa Rosa, I remember that!
NWTDennis Premium
The last earthquake of significance here in Santa Rosa was the Loma Prieta in 1989, which did so much damage in San Francisco and along the Nimitz Freeway in Oakland. Did you have to clean up after a flood in Guerneville?

They had pretty severe flooding this year. Our area got about 150% normal rainfall this past winter in very concentrated sequences.

I've enjoyed our dialogue Rosana.
RosanaHart Premium
I was thinking of the 1969 one.By 1989 I was in Oregon.
NWTDennis Premium
There was an earthquake in 1969. We had recently moved into our first home and I remember huddling with neighbors out in the court who I hadn't met yet.

MurphysMom Premium
Nice to meet you Rosana! I’m in the 70’s club...a writer as well.

Affiliate Marketing is a new venture for me and I’m excited to learn as much as I can!

The training is so thorough...I can’t wait to get online whenever I can. This is a remarkable business. The training process is like a ladder...each step depends on the previous one. As a former educator I’ve had to breeze through materials way too many times. Not now ...I am determined to be successful in these autumn years. I’m going to visit some of you sites...especially the training-dogs...

Best to you.

RosanaHart Premium
I put a lot of work into the dogs site for a long time but since I have been writing my memoirs it's gotten a little shaggy!
PaulREvans57 Premium
Hi Rosana,

Thank you for following me and joining my network. I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. We are a great community, and I am sure you will be made very welcome. If you feel the need to correct my grammar, I will not be offended. I use Grammarly but it is not foolproof, and I'm frequently the fool!

I'm pleased you were successful in fixing your link to your ebook. Extra income is always welcome.

I wish you every success in your ventures.
Be Happy!
deelilah Premium
So nice to meet you, Rosana. Since it's been 37 years since I turned 39, I can relate to much of what you have written in your profile. I face the SS issue too, because I have mostly worked for myself, and my husband along with me. I am having fun today meeting people my own age. I am going now to look up your books written site to see your site design. I have a few books ready for amazon also.
RosanaHart Premium
Also born in 42 or so? From my Zana Hart site there are links to my books on Amazon.

Hi I am dropping by to say hi and nice to meet. It looks like you are very well knowledgeable all ready when it comes to building sites. I know you will do great here in WA.

Thank you for the follow, I have followed back and look forward to networking with you here in WA. Have an awesome day!

You recently took me up on my offer to be in a mutual help group for WA members doing the super affiliate challenge. This was in my blog post .

I have now created my website for this challenge. It's https://superaffiliatechallenge.com.

Please go to that site and click Q&A from the main menu. It's a thread created especially for this group. It's password protected and the password is wasac (for wealthy affiliate super affiliate challenge). I look forward to your participation and mutual support.

Oops I'm still pretty new here and am not in the sa challenge THIS time. Didn't realize that was was your post was asking.

Good evening to you Rosana, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back.
I almost pursued that lifestyle back in my early adulthood. I was a college dropout but I liked having money so I became a printer instead. I wondered if I took the right path after all.
I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve success. I wish you much satisfaction in your online discoveries.

Thanks for following me, Rosana!

I hope I can bring value in some form or other to everyone I meet. Even if its just to have them smile or laugh.

I hope you enjoy watching me as I go from where I am today to wherever the hell I am tomorrow. ;-)

I've been here less than a week and cannot wait to get back online and get to work and interact with the community.

Once again, thanks!

Hello and welcome Rosana! Lovely to meet you and I appreciate your follow which I will of course reciprocate. Years ago, I did extensive writing, long before it was required in my career and now in my retirement. I'm hoping some of my pieces will have a revival and come back to light with my new website.
Anywho, this should be relatively painless for you. Follow the training and don't spurn any of it. Always TRUST THE PROCESS!! The training will absolutely work, but you need to follow it through and create your own shortcuts😉 I absolutely wish you the best Rosana and if I can help you in any way, please don't hesitate to ask. I'll be the one in the corner napping! 😴

Yay Us Indeed!! 🌟
RosanaHart Premium
Napping? Always after lunch!

Thanks for your nice thoughts.
MThompson3 Premium
Thanks for the follow and look forward to following your success and reading your books. I was born in 1961, so caught the tail-end of the LSD years. All know is that some of the most successful people I know today, did or tried acid yesterday. Best $5 you can spend on drugs in my opinion.
If you cannot handle acid, you probably cannot handle life well. Just my opinion.

Make a living, make a difference.

RosanaHart Premium
For me, acid opened some important doors (to God mainly!) but I do know people who tried it and got messed up by it so I think there are plenty of people who shouldn't try it. Generally their intuition will tell them that. Now that it's illegal, which it wasn't when I took it, that is another issue.
MThompson3 Premium
Do you have a link to buy from or just go to amazon?
RosanaHart Premium
I'm still working on the LSD book but the first two books in the memoir series are at Amazon under my writing name and nickname Zana Hart.
Wdcope Premium
Rosana, I agree with you. 16 months and I will hit the next decade and plan on staying sharp as I am now. Hoping the body agrees. :) When people hear what I am doing they think I am crazy, but then I tell them about the freedom I have, and they understand better. So many of us in the 60's and early 70's like a little extra to enjoy ourselves even more.
Wish you the best in becoming more involved again. Look forward to reading some posts.
Take care,
RosanaHart Premium
"in our 60s and early 70s" -- I remember those! Thanks for your comments. I started eating mostly vegan as one way to take care of my body, expect I will blog about that after a while.
BarbaraN Premium
Hello Rosana and welcome to WA. So great to have another writer in the mix. I haven't written a book yet- (still have one in mind)but have been editor of a newspaper and written many newsletters. Currently working on my ancestry-or I should say was --before I started with WA.
I'm in my 8th decade and still rolling along- some things take longer to digest- but when I got ; I got it.

Thanks for the follow, and I'm following you back,
FKelso Premium
I like your bio...another writer...happy to get acquainted. You are fortunate to have writing skills, as those will be extremely helpful in here.

You are right about your age group. The body might go by the wayside, but the mind is still good; at times, sharper than ever. I am 80, and am so happy to have found something I can do to feel creative and like I am contributing value. Good for you for joining us. I wish you tons of success.
EdwinBernard Premium
Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

You're at the right place at the right time to not only learn key elements about creating an online business but also to implement it the right way.

There is so much to this process I wont even begin to explain it here. Your training will reveal it all.

I had no experience in this online world when I joined WA. Within a couple of weeks as a Premium member, I had a basic website running. It was indexed in Google, And a few of my posts were ranked on the first page of the major search engines. The training showed me what I needed to do to create compelling content that visitors would like.

My suggestion is to go through the training regularly and implement what you are taught as soon as possible. If you get stuck, just post a question on the forum related to that training. You will receive great solutions from the more experienced members here. I may even be one of them even though I have only been a member for about three months.

I wish you much success in your quest to craft a money making online business. Congratulations for making this awesome decision!

Hello Rosana And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined and with your other online experience you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there is always something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 480+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.

Hi Rosana

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and that you for the follow

Enjoy all before you and just apply what has been taught by Kyle in the training available to you along with all the resources as well

Keep believing in yourself and in all you do and just keep going forward.
By way, age is just a number and totally agree with you

Wishing you well

RosanaHart Premium
Age may be just a number, I do agree with that, but in my family some people tend to live a long time. One of my grandmothers died in her sleep a couple of days after her 100th birthday! Given that, and seeing that another number -- the value of the dollar -- is hard to predict, I'm motivated to up my income! I woke up early this morning full of eagerness...

Here is to the new you! May you achieve everything that you wish to and more at WA :)
RoseAnn1234 Premium
Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learned to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask.
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.

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.

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