Happy to meet you Seelady, You're a busy lady.

I looked at your websites and I'm very impressed. I'm new and just beginning my first website; "Self-Help Coach". I may be calling on you for some help.

I'm 81 and have many experiences to share. But, first, the first website.

Wish you continued success.

I visited your site, baseball moms, and left a comment on your weather pod post. Cool stuff. I wanted to say privately that I absolutely love your site. It is obviously an affiliated site, full of advertisements, but it has a welcoming feel and cool set up. I'd be interested in interviewing you for my site. The link is https://createyourdream.comeonwithit.com/what-is-your-dream-interview/

Think about it. I have my first interview in the works at the moment so you might want to wait to see what I produce to see if it's something you want to use.

Great job!

Thanks for the follow, Shannon!
I am new here.
Could you, please, help me getting an idea on making money as an affiliate? I will definitely attend all the courses, but I am eager to learn from the experienced ones. Are you satisfied with your earnings? How much time do you invest in this business?
Is the language barrier a handicap?

Wish you a wonderful day!

Pick something you are interested in because otherwise you will hate doing it. I have just started putting in more time to my sites and have started to make money. Before that I just did it here and there and wasn't getting much traffic. Make sure you have someone who writes well in English proofread your posts because the language barrier is important to overcome. :)

Hi seelady. Thanks for the follow. Was some time ago but I've been busy with my live business. I'm into creating and marketing plastic products. From what I've seen your accomplishments and their timing seem quite realistic for someone who runs their own business so I'm encouraged and I hope you continue to achieve your ambitions. Best of luck.

Hello Dario,

I looked at your website and it looks great. I put a comment on your page about the $300 Apple book.

On that page, there are some grammatical errors that you should try to fix so you should read through it and fix those to make it tighter and more professional.

If you would like to comment on one of my websites, I have three: BaseballMomStuff.com, BizOnlineFromHome.com, and LEDLightingInfo.com.

Best of luck!

Hey, Shannon, I have gone through my post, fixed mistakes and updated it.

Very nice website and very informative.

I don't mean to be too personal, but is WA sustaining u financially, or is it a welcome bonus to your pre-existing income, I am very much looking forward to learning from WA but I am also working on establishing a writing career, and trying to start a few private businesses

Hi there,

Right now my websites are just a bonus to my existing income. I've had a lighting business for 25 years and I hope to transition to doing the website thing full-time eventually. I'm starting to put more and more time into it now with writing more content and posting on social media. Good luck with all your endeavors! :)

Hey, I like your websites. You have chosen really great niches.
I have read in your description that you have been WA member for 2 years so far.
Did you reach the success you have wanted when you joined WA?
How long did it take you for each website to start generating income?

And would you mind to do comment for comment on our websites? Thanks!

Hello there,

I've been doing this part time and it only took me a few months (about 4) to get my websites set up, but I have another business so I haven't put as much content as I would like. I'm just now starting to generate income from affiliates and Adsense.

I will comment on your websites soon!

Thank you for following me. What can you share from your 2 years at WA? Assuming you have put in the work, has this been financially successful since you've invested ~ 1200.00? Just curious as I have been so distracted and yet I want to keep being a member and work on this as much as I can while holding down a 12 hour Pain-in-the-A** job...Please do tell.....

Hi there. After a year and a half of working on my websites part time, I am now starting to make money. I want to spend more time on it, but I still have a business that I'm running and I'll do it for a while longer. The key is putting out a lot of content with good key words. You have to post 2-3 pages per week to really make it work.

Thank you for inviting me to follow, Shannon! At WA I'm a newbie, but my perspectives are long-term, continuing earlier work. The people in here, and the sincerity, is what made me decide to join for real - WA is the place to be, to learn and interact.

There is clearly much to be inspired by through your profile - and reading the diverse sites here is what I'll do a lot. My daily schedule is rather full, but as a 'yearly' at WA I intend to be here as much as time allows. (This response couldn't come earlier, as I've been away traveling.)

Seeing you in full, vital gear reminds me of the dangers of sitting too much glued to the keyboard...

Till next time,

Hi Shannon, thanks for the follow. :)
We have a few things in common. I have also had my own business, working from home, which I'm looking to do again with WA.
Been involved with sports, soccer that is. I coached for several years, team mom etc. Yes, coaching included my kids.
I am always interested in seeing what other women in WA are doing and how they're doing it.
Two years is great! Something to look forward to. Keep up the good work. I'll be following you too. :)

Thank you for the follow; I will return the favor. Wish you all the best with your three websites. Curious why you followed me when you have so much experience. I am just an old jet jockey, just starting at WA.. Do you coach your kids baseball teams? Since you have been with WA two years, I would like to discuss your experience/success. Looking forward to hearing back.

When you say you have a business, is it an online business or do you have a store or other work out of the home business? Is it profitable?Also why Seelady and not Sealady?

No worries. I have a lighting business that Ive owned since 1992. Basically, I sell light bulbs, fixtures, etc. It has been profitable but business has slowed because of the long life of LED bulbs. I want to make sure I have something else going.

My initials were SEE (maiden name) so I just used it to make an email.

I loved your site! Being a capitalist pig (LOL) I really liked the 2 sidebars effect! You really got some great affiliates there! what theme is that?

I had a little trouble leaving the comment as the captcha thing got me LOL (oldtimers disease) but I got it. Did you know you don't need that with WA hosted sites with the antispam plugin!

Keep up the good work!
I could use a comment on bestinternetwork.com/ads-cash-review

I am a fairly newbie to WA, but I have put my head into it and I am prepared to do the work needed to reach success.
My first road bump was to how to decide on a niche. I thought it good to write a post on how I got to a decision. Please read about it here and leave me a comment. Cheers for now.

Hi, you mentioned you have been on WA for about 2 years now? Are you starting to see steady income yet from your 3 sites? I know it takes time but I am asking around so that I have a realistic picture of what to expect with my own. I made this my full time job managing my 5 sites I have created. If only been here for 10 months so I know I need to be patient.
But, overall are you making good revenues yet?
Reply
seelady Premium
Hi Matty. I'm just starting to see some revenues from my sites, but I haven't posted as much content as I would like since I'm still running my lighting business. Amazon seems to be the best way to go as far as affiliates. Just make sure you are posting a lot of content whatever it is. I will definitely check out your sites when I get a chance. Good luck! :)
Reply
MattyBx Premium
Thanks for the advice. I noticed you have been doing this since 2015 so you have some years 'under your belt' ...is why I asked. Picking peoples brains I suppose. I will keep posting as I agree that is most important to stay up to date with google search. I'm only at about 10 months so I know it takes a few years of trying hard. You have a 'real' lighting business so that is good to have that main source. Take care and good luck!

Shannon, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in following you back but time gets away from me.

I left a comment on the LED site. We have used low energy bulbs for years and all our Christmas lights are LED. My ex was the senior technologist for an alternative energy company so we are quite familiar with different power sources.

Now I must say you have been a busy little bee with three sites. I wish I could say the same.

Now let us keep in touch.

It has been quite refreshing to see your websites and connect a real person to them. I looked into Internet marketing about 10 years ago and got burned. You and others here at Wealthy Affiliate have encouraged me by chronicling your journey.

My, oh my. You are a busy bee. Very impressive websites, to say the least. I would be surprised if the LED site was not giving you a good return on investment thru Amazon. It appears to be the ultimate # 1 source for info on LED lighting. Extraordinary.
I also love the "courage" theme on biz site. Mind if I incorporate it on my site?

Hi Shannon,
Thanks for the follow. Had a question since you have been around for longer than I have. I checked out your site. I was just wondering because it seems that everyone always seems to talk about building a website here and yours seems like a blog. what made you go that route? Im thinking of doing the same thing, you're just the first person I have seen do that so far. Thanks!

Hi there,

I like to write about my personal experiences, so I chose the blog concept for my websites. It's just a choice, but if you make it too much about selling, I think people read into that and it may be a turn-off unless it's just a site to buy things. Just my opinion. Good luck with the pursuit of your new business! :)

Hi,
Your LED Website is great! I hadn't realized that the LED business has developed so wonderfully, but am not surprised. About a year ago I replaced some overhead bathroom lights with LED ones of a different style but similar ceiling footprint. They are about a 1/5 the wattage, brighter, and longer lasting.
Anyway, you've been with WA long enough that I am sure that your are well established, so good luck.

I believe you messaged me about my niche about living organic. I was trying to find out if I can use WordPress' web images. I'm only 3 days old with WA and I finished lesson 4, but I didn't make my web page and jump to 5 just to see what kind of content I could use. If it was you who messaged me I am going to try to SING.

Thanks Seelady, I received a message while on my laptop and this member suggested that I use WordPress for my niche web page. I found one that I liked, then another member said I must be a premium member to do so. I was responding to the message and my thumb hit the scroll, I don't know, and the message and my response was gone. But thanks for responding. Day 3 for me. if there is any advise you can give don't hesitate Got scammed 2 yrs ago. for over for over $2000, it was over time though. WA seems to be a good fit. We'll see.
