Hi Shirley,
I like your attitude of loving your life and wanted to have a change to have your own Online Business. Great thought and may your wishes realise soon. I believe your writing skills will make you a good content creator in the Online world as it is an essential skill to attract audiences to your sites.

Thank you for telling me exactly what you liked. That is very much more helpful than just - I liked your post. There are two kinds of posts/blogs out there the kind that I agree with or overall like and I'll put a like or the kind that touch me personally in some way. In that case I like to tell them exactly what I liked as you did so that they know what part of their content was most engaging for me. I think that may also help them know if they want to follow me.

I have just finished reading your profile and I note that there has been some recent changes in your life. I wish for your success as well.
Regards

Thanks for your interest and the kind words.
I love to read, and have 4 children - when they were babies I always read out loud to them as I held them - years later I find out that the best way for children to learn is when they are in an emotionally happy environment - well I guess you can't beat being fed physically and intellectually at the same time. Lol
I like to think it had something to do with the fact my daughter with a higher than average IQ was a gifted student who participated 1 week out of 4 in a school for citywide gifted students. My son who I'd put in French immersion had completed grade 2 when we moved so he was going to an all English school. They told me he had to repeat grade 2 and I asked if they would test him first as I did not think he was behind. I told them that he could already read and while I could teach him English I wanted him to learn French as well. Result? They tested him and put him in grade 3. He was reading at a grade 7 level for Comprehension! The younger 2 boys now 31 and 33 for the past decade have had their own successful renovation businesses like their father! He employed all 4 of them in turn to spend the summer holidays working for him - to keep them out of trouble and it worked! As one of the boys said - He never showed us any favoritism - in fact I think he always gave us the worst jobs!
I hope you didn't mind this empty nester's bit of nostalgia there?
I'm interested in everything and l've always wanted to be a writer, so perhaps this is a good fit for me!
Thanks again and I will enjoy following someone who is ahead of me on this very interesting Journey!

Don't apologize for being a great parent. You should be proud of your children. I don't have any...but I get it. Now it's time for you!

Thank you very much, I am proud of my children. Sometimes it amazes me that when we had our first 2 we were in our very early 20's - what did we know? There is 10 years between oldest and youngest so thankfully I had a 2nd opportunity to Try to correct any previous mistakes. Of course I just made New ones Lol.
I was excited and fearful of this huge endeavor called raising children. The years were made up of one day at a time. Some instruction here, a correction there, some praise whenever it was called for built on a foundation of Trust. I told them that I will always Trust you - until you teach me Not to.

It strikes me as similar to what I am embarking on here at WA.
Only this time I am the 'child' learning! And I hope that when I build my content for my select audience that they will learn to trust me and my research or suggestions, and perhaps be willing to try any appropriate products that I think would be helpful in their lives. That way I can earn a Living through Commissions on things they Would Have Bought Anyway, while staying true to my Nurturing Nature.
Best Regards

Thank you Delroy?
Did you see my first blog? Everyone wrote with such passion about Marion Blacks discussion that it got me involved - much earlier blog than I'd planned lol

I'm going to follow you - I'm interested to know what you do about the auto-trader software. Perhaps your site here could be on your research and recommendations of the top 10 in each vehicle category. (As there are probably many such car sites if you want to do this make sure you review the low hanging fruit list for keyword sites with under 100 competitors).
If you do that type of site, let me know as that would save me a lot of research time as I want to find a car within 6 months and have NO CLUE where to start!! And I'd rather use your site than someone not on WA.

You're welcome ShirleyAnne.
Yes I enjoyed reading your first blog. I am one of the six people that like it. Thank you for the follow. I am following you too.
Thank you for your suggestion about auto-trader software in car sites. What I should of said is that I was referring to auto-trading software used in the financial markets to do with binary options. Sorry that I didn't make that clear, my fault.
Best regards

I like to Edutain people, teaching while reading a funny novel or funny story. Have a look at my blogs, maybe it can give you some inspiration. As this is my training ground here, I write for training myself so I will be able to produce even more quality content to my readers once my websites go up. I am not interested in rankings, rankings will not make you money, the opposite it will take you time and money, my advise forget the rankings, spend your time on learning, use your blogs to educate yourself, to train and hear what others think of your writing style. I very much appreciate your honest review of my current blogs I wrote. Thank You in advance. :) Enjoy the teachings. :)

Hello Shirley,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Loes, love your way of doing a training for the issues you had as that means others probably have same trouble and I assume doing so is the way to advance rank. Now that you solved issue sharing THAT doesn't take much time while fresh in mind.
I too love lists and want to find that one blog that contains them all -I'd like to tag that blog - (the mother lode) but I did not find. I even hit View all blogs in case first one is different from current blog list. Would you please give me title of blog and I will definitely read it.

Thanks Kyle Yes I'm joining. Love it here! I have sent a message to Littlemama so I can find out how to join properly to be in her group as she is one who directed me here. When I find out which link to click to do that I will be joining. If I don't here from her by tomorrow I will join from her site and hope that is the way. I have 23 hours left to join - sure hope the counter is accurate. lol
Until beginning my training from where I left off at lesson 10 I am browsing this site esp the community of people who have contacted me already. I know that once I can continue my lessons I will not have much time to do that.
Looking forward to being Premium - I would appreciate you letting me know how to make payment - don't want a bad surprise on last day. Online I always use my Debit card Visa as I don't have a credit card. If you can put my mind to rest that I won't have difficulty paying that way or bank transfer, I would be grateful. Thanks, Shirley

Hello Shirley!

I hope you're finding Wealthy Affiliate a fun place to be as well as all the learning you are doing!

That's great you have set up your account because people can talk to you more confidently. Remember everything on Wealthy Affiliate (WA) can be seen by anyone on the internet, so if you write a question, blog a WA post, or talking in Live Chat, anyone can see... so if your account is set up, then they will be more inclined to click on your content.

If you've decide which course to take by now, then that's awesome. If you can't decide still, then just let me know how I can help! Sometimes finding a niche is hard, so I can help narrow it down for you.

I'm here for you if you need it. Remember to have fun while you learn what you love to do, making money online! ;)

Talk soon,
Grace

Well I just learned after typing most of my message that you cant leave this page and come back to it, so starting over lol ....
Thanks for the information, appreciate.
I will take these next 3 days to study this site and find some people to follow and before my offer period ends will upgrade because then I will be focused on continuing my lessons ..... just so you see my plan.What I would like you to do for me: 1) tell me if you go on my website A Better way can you see my content on the 3 pages - policy, about me and A Better Way. The last page is just an outline - as I understand we are just doing drafts. Please let me know that it will not go on my site as it is currently.
2) Please tell me how to get the Tirpitz magazine - 3 column theme loaded onto my site page so I can add content to it in each designated column. THIS IS WHERE I'M STUCK! The columns don't appear when I go to visit my website or in the content page when I'm adding text. Please help.
I understood from a video outside lesson 9 that I need to add content thru that part of back office with that name so all my words are tracked. Unless you give me other instructions that is how I will proceed.
Regards,

ShirleyAnne Premium
Hi Grace I'll be online after 3:30 pm or so today so I'm really hoping that I get an answer from you so I can proceed there is one person following my thread who's also interested in learning how to do the tirpitz theme.
I understand you can't always be available so I reached out to the classroom but only got one response and she couldn't help me.
I will reach out to Kyle or Carson today since they're online during the day.
Hope to talk soon.

Hi Shirley, I just answered your questions about categories and theme. I'm actually on vacation right now so I can't respond as quickly as usual.

I also can't go to your website unless you give me the URL. I tried going to abetterway.com but doesn't work. what is your URL? This should be in your Site Rubix > Site Manager > Details and it should show you there what the URL is.

From the sounds of it, if you have created 3 pages and they aren't showing up on your site, this is because Pages need to be added to your menu for them to show up.

Here's a post on my site that tells you what's the difference between Pages and Posts:

http://workanywherenow.com/wordpress-page-vs-post-what-to-use-whats-the-difference/

Hope this will help explain it. I won't be able to check in again till 12 hours from this message. I hope this has helped you a bit. or else use live chat, or another ask a question.

Hi Grace for my url did you try a better way at rubix dot com. I believe that's what it is as I built it according to the lessons.
When I went to reply got message only premium members can include links. Therefore it's not as shown.
Reply
littlemama Premium
I saw your site and that A Better Way with your outline should just be your own notes, you should probably revise that page as soon as you can to what you are supposed to write there instead, one of your theme pages, as specified in the lessons.

And, as I explained earlier, you don't use the three columns like that, so I hope you understand me. If you keep going with the lessons, you may understand more what to do.
Reply
ShirleyAnne Premium
Thanks Grace I went in and put that page in trash. I will look into that information you sent and redo today.
Had asked you to let me know how I can join premium and you get credited for my joining. I have to join in a few hours time and if I don't hear back from you I assume I go back to your pages that I read that directed me to wealthy affiliate and click on one of your links to go premium.
I did not have a PayPal account and so I set that up last night.
I hope all will go well with payment.
Thanks and have a good day

well i finished as far as I can go as lesson 10 is to upgrade. Now I'm looking forward to absorbing from peoples blogs and esp. past lessons if they are available to me. Its been so great and I'm so excited to learn how to build my site page with good content. I left an outline of my plan on my website page and would love some help from you littlemama as its a very rough draft as I think was the assignment. So until you can reply I will try to immerse myself in whatever training I can pick up on.
Best Regards

Hi Grace yes completed 9th lesson as 10 is just the upgrade and onto lesson 2. Want to upgrade later.
I don't understand PM or how to post? link to you?

I chose the magazine theme with 3 columns but before I add content I'd like to know how to get the columns to appear so I can write in content. Checked out site content on site rubix and template but only thing that happened is it said I'd written 498 word article which I chose to delete.
Please let me know how to proceed as I don't want to write any more if you cant see what is there. Do you need my site name?
I have a lot of content to put into draft and would like your help as soon as you're available, thanks.
Reply
littlemama Premium
Once you're in the back end of Wordpress, you can start adding content under Post > Add New. Try to publish a post there and see if it shows up on your website.

This is why you need the rest of the lessons as they teach you how to proceed, what to write, and so forth. I know you will upgrade later, and that's okay, but it'll be hard for me to continue to tell you what to do as I may not explain it all as well as the lessons. I will do my best.

You will be losing your writing ability on this WA platform soon if you don't upgrade (but will still have access to your site), so you won't be able to contact me unless you go through my site, where you signed up through initially, and send me a message from my Contact Me page.

thanks and I did want to add that my progress is due to the hand holding provided and the Ingenious setup Here - start free but Only 6 more days for Full Access ..... (great motivation and much needed!).
Loving my Journey so far - Even the one very low day of being Overwhelmed and down - After all it meant I was way out of my Comfort Zone and Climbing what had previously been a Mountain to me. Ohhhh don't we just Love keeping to the Status Quo?
And the only way I woke up Refreshed and Ready to pick up where I left off ..... I Relaxed my Brain ie just watched TV lol - slept on the Niche problem overnight and woke up with a new Niche idea, played with it for an hour and got so fired up I went back to level 5 and started again from there and now I'm on lesson 8 and tho I usually like to Journey on without stopping .... - the Creators of this amazing site Say to Socialize as I go so .... Thanks to you for Contacting me and Providing me with someone I can admire with whom to Journey onward!

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.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

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

Thanks again. I look forward to learning from you and the community. I'm so grateful that it's set up to allow us to start without a credit card which I don't have (or want lol). I've always wondered when a company says you can make money with them then why can't they start for free and later when a person has made some money then they can invest further in their new venture. The fact that you do this gives you credibility. And I love that there's only two levels starting for free and premium and that you can remain in the free category as long as you need to. And your offer of $19 for 1st month is wonderful and I hope to take advantage of it.
To our future!

Yes, I do love this free feature of checking it all out before you have to pay anything. I believe that once you see the value in the platform, you will upgrade to Premium. Truly, I couldn't upgrade fast enough and still love it here after almost 10 months! Yeah, it's also nice that there are no other upsells, just the two membership options.

This business does take time to build and you may not always earn enough to cover for the membership early on, so just to give you an idea on how this business works.

Here are some success stories for you to check out and see how long people start seeing commissions come in: There are many other stories I'm about to update so look out for that too soon. In the meanwhile, there are plenty on that list for you to read about! :)
