Out In The Cold!

Last Update: September 17, 2014


Boy that was tough!!

As some of you may know I have been out of work for a while, I was signed off sick because of my blood clots in my leg! (no, i'm not a jetsetter! ). The welfare state here will not give me any money, because my wife works more than 20 hours per week blah blah!

So, I found this program, bit pricey, but worth it!!

I ran out of money, and with a 6 month wait to find out if I qualify for disability, there was no chance of replacing it. My wife has it all to do, so funding wa was not in the picture!

So, what to do?

I had a few sites hosted here naturally, but I had no money to transfer them over to a new host!

I scoured the internet looking for cheap(free) hosting, I found a company that charges £10.80 per year, per domain, (about $15) so I took that! I had to borrow the money from a friend!

Kyle was understanding, and helped where he could, even though technically I was gone!

He told me that commissions from wa are paid to current members, not lapsed ones!

So, my bootcamp site was not worth re-hosting.

I took a little niche site, that I had built, and transferred it over, It was a whimsical site that I built for the grandchildren to play on.

But it was monetized.

I am sooo glad to be back, the new host is problematic, as all themes I load do not have a theme editor!

It has'nt all been doom and gloom, I have returned very focused, and I am pleased I backed up all my sites, my deleted bootcamp site has been reinstated, and I am ranked quite highly for the search term "affiliate marketing for dummies 2014"

So, if you find yourself in a similar situation, take heart, you can come back! The training here is fantastic!

As is the community.

Till next time mates...

Great post Steve!. Thank you for bringing it to my attention when we were on chat this morning.

I didn't look at the date on that post (Out in the Cold). Have your symptoms been treated & are you back in a good place? I guess you were suffering from phlebitis or that deep vein thrombosis? Either way, I do hope things are better now.

I suppose you live in the UK? I did not read your About You but I notice where you referred to the Pound currency & I assumed it was pound sterling?

Hopefully, you are in the UK or somewhere that you have good healthcare?

Anyhow best wishes to you & best of everything for your internet businesses in 2016!

Again thanks for your help.

Steve, have you thought about a German Shepherds niche blog? That's on my list!
