Community Day 73 90-Day Plan

Last Update: April 17, 2018

I have been remiss and have not posted for 3 days I think. Over the weekend, I was just lazy. Yesterday I was focused on trying to get the conversion from a post to an eBook completed. I finished it this morning. Now, I have to figure out what to do with it.

You might think it would be easy to turn a long post (6,600 words) into an eBook. I thought just some formatting. No, not really. I completely rewrote the introduction and a conclusion and re-writes aside the post formatting was completely wrong.

While one and two sentence paragraphs work in a blog for white space, not so much in writing. Then of course, there's the table of contents, pagination, setting up sections, and even an index. But it is finished. Now on to the next task - a static page on my website.

But for the rest of this blog I'm going to talk about community. The WA community.

As I write or re-write or edit a WA review I always think about how to communicate to prospective WA members the value of this great community. And as I try to explain about websites - the sum is so much greater than the total of the parts.

It's not just the help everyone gives to each other - that's important. Some of it is the way people spend time and effort to create training to help others (there are several people I could name here but fear leaving someone out) - that's very helpful. Part of it is the gracious support and encouragement everyone provides to many complete strangers that by some winding road find themselves in same place - that's unique.

These things are valuable but I find hard to quantify. It's easy to explain that the value of the WA technology package (theme templates, authoring tools, keyword research tools, backups, anti-hacking protection, Site SSL, support, and so much more are great values. In fact they are a bargain. I know if you had to arrange for and pay for them separately it would be considerably more than the monthly WA subscription.

Now, add the value of the training and a caring community that money can't buy. The daily stream of blogs, questions, and comments that engage our minds and hearts. And then there are the two or three people who always make you laugh. If you're reading this, and you usually do read and comment on my blogs, thank you for the laughter.

Okay, I am beginning to sound like Ariel (not that that's a bad thing) so it's time to end this rambling with a simple thank you. You encourage me, you challenge me, and together we help each other move forward to success.

No, today I need to create a static page on the site. Which means I have to write a page about the website itself. lol

Huh, can't knock 10 eBooks out in a day, your slacking! Lol

Good luck with the static page! I guess that page is going no where then! Stick to your website like glue I guess!

Nice post. On the e-book end I can totally agree it is a whole new world to writing blogs. I am currently trying to use the Kindle Developers tool to turn some of my old post and new ideas into an e-book and not only do you face the formatting issues but you find how much your style changed over time and have to do rewrites to make things flow better one chapter to the next.

I have decided too many times to write this e-book on the techniques I use to build my business and lost track. I do plan to develop a street team, and have my marketing plan all but hatched, but the book is only like 40% finished.

Best of luck to you and thanks for the tips on writing Wealthy Affiliate Reviews.

Yes, it is quite different but if you have content to work with it's a good start.
One of the things I did, after reading a PC magazine article, was write in in MS Word. The reason given was that you could export it in PDF, XML, and HTML as eBook format requirements vary.

Best of luck. Let me know if I can help.

Congratulations on completing your eBook! You mentioned Ariel and I just read her eBook which is available on Amazon. As expected it was beautiful. Good luck on yours.

I wrote my message back to you this morning, 10 minutes after I had woken up and the words were not flowing, I dived straight in because I saw the mail box at 152 messages - not all WA and 10% straight into the Junk box!

Anyway, I am fed and watered now and sitting in front of the computer poised and ready to go!

I leave my office tomorrow, a sad day, back on the road again. I had a bit of a shock news again yesterday, it took me back 10 years, to a place where I realized some people can be quite callous when it come to money and greed!

Yesterday I was introduced to two young guys at this office - entrepreneurs - setting up there own platform - it reminded me a little like Kyle and Carson. These guys are so switched on and going places!

They looked at my website instantly started advising on things I was having problems with. Really helpful and inspirational - again!

Talking of inspirations, this platform is helping many of us, the two guys I talked to yesterday are on the road to riches but what was humbling and the words that they spoke was just about paying it forward - money wasn't there focus. It was my forecast that they will make the money.

Steven you pay a lot of logical and helpful stuff forward, keep up the brilliant work and keep benefiting others!

This was just to support my couple of words in my drowsy sleep this morning!

Success to you and all of the members and friends that you interact with!

Where do I go to buy the book!

Time for another Nap I think! Lol
