About SWhitley
Joined March 2018
I was born in and raised in Tuscumbia, a small town in north-west Alabama. After high school, enlisted in the US Navy for four years. I returned home and worked a series of low paying and dead end jobs. Returning to the Navy became my best option. I was lucky; reenlisted for my same rating (Gunner's Mate) and at my old pay grade. GM is often referred to as a jack of all trades, master of none rating. Lots of great training on just about everything but … I did well enough and enjoyed the job and the life enough to do another 20 years. With the support of my wonderful wife, Maryee, I spent a total of 24 years in the US Navy and retired to Iowa.

My wife of 32 years and I have 6 children, four of M's from her first marriage and two we fostered and adopted. We live in rural Iowa and have dogs, cats, miniature horses, a goat, two cats, chickens, ducks, geese. When you add in our two teenagers (1 boy, 1 girl) sometimes things get pretty loud and hectic here. But, we have a great life.

My interest are many and varied. I truly am a jack of all trades, master of none. I can be sarcastic and my idea of humor is warped and somewhat twisted, but I mean no offence and try to keep my little space on our Earth smiling and peaceful.

Awesome About Me page ... wow you paint a lovely picture - can't wait to read all about your adventures - miniature horses, teenage children, dogs, cats, goat, chickens, ducks, geese ... love this image and it sounds like you have a wonderful perspective on life.

Your website is lovely - I just commented on one of your comments asking for comments on your website ... and I am listening to Native American flute music right now as I right this - thanks for the inspiration!

Also, I have some musical inspiration that may fit with the topics you write about - private message me if you are interested.

Hello Sanders,
I am very impressed by the way you wrote your post "What a long strange trip". I feel that you have a talent of writing novel-like material. Your post could be some ideas to be added to your future content in your website. It just that I enjoyed reading your post "What a long strange trip".
I am happy to follow you and wish you success in WA.

Thank you, Paul. Not so sure about me writing novel material. I struggle to write and most of the time, I do poorly. Sometimes a good thing happens and if I am lucky, I can get it written. The long strange trip started as just a comment and turned into my bio, with me hoping to develope it further. WA training takes a huge toll on my time but.

Again, thanks!

HIya

Thanks so much for the follow, I'm following you back too :)

If you need some inspiration for your WA journey, feel free to check out my recent post:
I'm sure you'll agree, there's some awesome tools on here for Wealthy Affiliate members.

I use Jaaxy for all of my Keyword research and SiteContent to draft all of my posts for my website. Here's a little trick that will show you how beautifully these tools integrate and also SAVE you time:
Canva is also a great tool that's quite popular with other WA members, to design stylish graphics, like headers etc, for their websites.
Wishing you every success and feel free to drop me a line anytime!

Hello Jonathan and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

Thank you Sir! The learning curve is something. But I go slow and try to get a good understanding. Most certainly will check your blogs and try to keep up.

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! :)

Hi Kyle, Thought I would start with an interest of mine "relaxation and meditation music". I did spend a little too much time thinking it through but finally narrowed it down, leaving myself some wiggle room. Enjoying the training, you all have spent some time, money and brain cells on WA! Thank You!
