About Scottwhateva
Joined March 2015
Hi I've been looking for the best way to create a viable income and quit my job for some time. I've looked at internet marketing and various schemes but nothing has given me the spark to explode into the stratosphere of success...yet.

I'm hoping that's going to change very soon.

A bit about me: I'm a divorcee, have a son who lives with his mother (he has Down's Syndrome but he's a really bright kid!). I currently live alone and have a day job that pays the bills. I play guitar, sing, write and record songs, keep fit, watch movies and am an internet addict - always looking for new things and keeping up with what's new.

I'd really want to take full advantage of what the internet has to offer to enable me to live a better life

I'd like to get my music into something online. I've had my own website previously, promoting music I'd created. But it didn't work out - or rather I did persist with it.

From what I've experienced so far with WA, this is one hell of a place to be if you want to get a sense of community, help and successful aspirations.

So here's to our success!

If you dedicate enough time to your online business, anything level of success possible. Everything you need is here at WA, from the training to the tools, the websites, the hosting and the personal help.

Take action on the tasks within the training and ask for help when you need it and these goals are going to become a tangible reality for you Scott!

Haha, I am with you on this Scott! I previously worked in a call centre, such fun ;) I have similar goals to you financially and I honestly believe they are achievable. As long as we manage to keep a happy "work-life" balance, I am positive we can do this. Good luck! Sandra

Thanks Kyle. This really does look like it might have what I need. It definitely feels good to be part of this community and it's definitely more affordable than others I've seen.

No seriously, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we will find a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

Anyway, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing. Please feel free to send me a private message if there is anything I can do for you.

I slowed down after getting to course 3....I have a tough subject (COBOL) and trying to get lots of content is rough, but I will make it as my time permits. I do love reading blogs that others have posted and know that if I just hang in there I will be successful also. We have the tool, just have to apply myself as my time permits.
Reply
Scottwhateva Premium
Have you decided on a very specific niche within that or it is just COBOL in general? If you haven't already, may be worth reviewing the WA course lesson covering niches: I found that when I didn't have a narrow enough niche it became difficult to find exactly who my audience was and hence what I needed to write about...
Reply
cschlup54 Premium
Scott, no specific niche within COBOL ....Just COBOL and things related to COBOL. I am thinking of trying a new niche but at this time not sure what.. I know COBOL will not have a huge audience so need to try something else. I really used COBOL for learning how to create website. But thanks for sending me the link it will refresh my memory.
Reply
Scottwhateva Premium
You still may have a niche in COBOL. It's a matter of finding who the customer is and what problem(s) they need solving. You could look at forums and such like and get what people are having difficulties with and work from there. If you have technical knowledge, it's worth putting it to use online, and maybe make some money from it.

Areet mate? Ok, had some time to take a look through your site and will pull it to pieces as promised :p

Honestly speaking... I think the site is pretty cool, very different from what I've seen since I've joined. It's captivating and I feel it can only get better as you increase the content. Design and niche-wise, it's pretty good too cos it's simple to add content cos of the way you've approached it.

Now for a few bit of constructive criticism, purely my thoughts and preferences :)

1. I personally feel the site would look better with a white background, simply cos it'll look "cleaner" and "fresher". The black background reminds me of websites from around the time I was in uni, but the current trend nowadays tends to be a background colour that is lighter in general. It might just be me, I studied computing and web design, so there are certain things I prefer and feel strongly about.

2. For posts, you have a standard format i.e. picture, description, cow rating, share icon etc etc... Visually, there is a lot there and I think it could do with a bit more spacing it for example grouping certain items together a bit more so it doesn't seem all mixed together - like for the cow rating, the text, cow rating stars and submit button are obviously together, but to make it stand out more, have more white space before and after this section, then visually it'll be easier for the reader to follow.

3. One final thing and I just happened to spot this, not sure if its a typo or maybe I've just been away from the uk for too long so my sense of humour has been drained haha... on this page: http://crazyoddweird.everythingprint3d.com/wind-instrument
Should it read "funny" instead of "punny"?
Your text reads: "Pixalism sure has a punny imagination"
Apologies if its just me haha :)

Ok, that's all I spotted mate, hope it helps you and feel free to drop me a message if you need anything in the future or if you have a new post.

Oh, I like your thoroughness. This is what I need. Appreciate you taking the time.
I'm glad the site looks a bit different. I want something that stands out from the rest.
1. I think there's debate about the background, it ain't a "black and white" proposition! (joke). Some have problems (I seen comments on WA) with the white background - affecting readability. Personally I find too much white can be glary and hard on the eyes after a while. Maybe because I wear glasses, I don't know. But it's a point that maybe needs further survey. For the time being though, it's black and it would be too much effect to change a lot of things to match with a white background.
2. I agree with this, so I've added more space. Simples.
3. Oh, you'll have to get used to my humour. It's all very much puns that I use. So, yes, this was intentional. Maybe I should have put quotes around it to make it stand out more. Anyway, keeps people on their toes!
Cheers,
Scott

No problem mate :)

Yeah, that's true what you mentioned about having too much white, anyway, your site has inspired me and given me some ideas for another website when I get around to it.

Anyway, the weekend is approaching, come on the Toon! :)

Scottwhateva Premium
Let me know when you get that site up and I'll give it a going-over...
The Toon are playing on Monday vs Liverpool. Don't have any high hopes of a win. Pretty dire at the moment.

Dammit, just realised now the match is on Monday... 7 hours time difference where I am so if I watch a 8pm kick-off its 3am here, it used to be worth it, but lately I've been let down each time...

Hi Suzanne, Have you looked at going Premium? I took the plunge! I've still yet to determine my niche. Really finding it difficult. I had thought I'd cracked it but when you get into the nitty gritty, there's all kinds of considerations with what you pick, and what I can do... How about yourself?
Reply
Hi Scott; I've decided i'll go premium once I've worked through a bit more of the bootcamp and basic training. So, taking it a bit slow to familiarise myself with more of this field. My sites are up and running but not much content has been added yet, also still working through a lot of it and needing to learn what makes this work :-) Good luck cracking through, Suzanne

Hey Scott 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 Scott, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

Hi Steve,
Thanks for the message. Wasn't expecting that! I'm definitely looking to get out of working for someone else and working online definitely appeals me. I had been looking at the program started by Anik Singal but I'm not sure I want to go ahead with it. This WA community looks more what I need. So I'll look over what's on here and see if Premium is for me.
Thanks for the intro and I hope to be as successful as yourself at some time in the not too distant future.
Cheers,
Scott
