It's been two years almost for me here at WA and I have 'to say for a guy like me it's not been the easiest of rides. At times I wanted to quit and say "Man, I could be using my time more efficiently, like start applying for jobs!" But then the other side of me said "Been there, done that." At 54 years old I have been in two separate military services, both the Marine Corps and then the Navy Reserves. But that wasn't the end at all. After 10 years of doing that I went on to do a number of jobs.

I made it to the 3rd spot on Google. At least that's what it's showing. And it happened pretty recently when Jay showed me something that I had been missing for two years. And that was a site that shows you what leading organic traffic was coming from top keywords. So, I went back through the keywords and phrases and found all of the articles associated with these keywords and did some editing. Since the site in question was a WA promotion website I added a call to action on these articles and

This is the night I have been waiting for all year. That night when unsuspecting victims don't know whether I'm in front of them, to the side or behind them. This is the night I will get what I want, the night when all who come across my path will lose and try and run away with fear in their eyes. This is the night I will take the very thing those are out looking for. Like a creature of the night I am the one you fear the most, the one who will stop at nothing to take what you have!This is the

Today is my son's 15th birthday and I was wondering if some of you could say Happy Birthday Josh! in the comments. I know it sounds corny but I want him to know not everyone is someone to be feared. We used to live in a somewhat questionable neighborhood and he saw some stuff that made him not really trust people so much. But he is such a good kid and deserves so much and being a Marine Corps veteran and electrician in my 50s that had to slow down I want him to experience some good stuff I cant

I noticed a lot of new people here are wondering why they aren't getting referrals and are scratching their heads thinking "What am I doing wrong?" The thing is technically you may be doing nothing wrong at all. You're completing courses and the boot camp but still no referrals. You're writing on your website and creating quality blogs yet still no referrals. It must be something you're doing wrong right?I say no, you aren't doing something wrong except have little patience to see success come

I think I have figured out what it is to become a niche authority. I know it means becoming an expert in your particular niche but I think I was understanding it wrong for a long time. When I started I remember after a few months I started getting referrals like crazy, they wouldn't fill out a profile but they kept signing up every few hours. Imagine my disappointment when I realized they were just bots and not even real people. At that time I probably had about 75 website posts. My first year

Its been a long time coming but I can at last say I made my first Wealthy Affiliate commission. I won't say the last year and half have been easy. I struggle with some basic cognitive stuff (distracted easily) from when I had meningitis. So keeping focused within the training has been tough but I kept at it. Now my website has 260 blog post and still growing. I'm also seeing some increased traffic on the site. This doesn't have to be a full time effort like a J.OB. Even if you write one article

Its been a long and sometimes frustrating journey for the last year and a half but somehow I have managed to stick around. Maybe its the stubborn Marine veteran in me or the fact that I have Irish blood but I haven't quit. I have learned when to study and write and when to take a break from it all. When I get too overwhelmed I turn off all electronics and redirect to either fishing or hanging out with my 14 year old son (when he lets me). LolIf you're thinking about throwing in the towel remem

Ok, so the past year and a half has definitely had it's ups and downs for me on WA as well as life in general. But through it all I have managed to stay consistent with writing and updating my website It has been a roller coaster and I don't think without support from the family I could have kept at it. Why is that? Because by nature we are all pretty impatient. The world moves very fast and who really has time to sit down and write and article? And will it even
