Hello

I am Terri...I am 55 and began looking for a way to add to my income and life. In September 2015 I lost my part-time job. It wasn't much, just a few hours a week to supplement my disability income. As a result I had raised my standard of living just enough to feel the pinch when I became unemployed. My job prospects were limited. So my internet search began and what a trip it has become! I honestly thought "how hard can it be to make a few dollars with my computer?" I mean I have a fairly nice laptop, a spare room that I can use as work space and time...quite a bit of time on my hands. I wasn't looking for a "get rich quick scheme" I just wanted to make enough money to be comfortable again. Well here I am nearly 6 months later and I have learned a few things since then. And I was becoming disillusioned to say the least. I think I may be one of the lucky ones though, so far I am only out about $75. 00, I have managed to avoid a lot of the scams I have stumbled across but I have lost a little and quite a bit of time. I refused to give up I believed that there had to be something out here, people are earning money from the internet and I wanted a little piece of it. I felt a bit helpless after I lost my job, I knew that I didn't want to feel that way for to much longer so I didn't give up. I kept researching, I was just about to throw in the towel until this weekend. Over time it finally became clear to me that I just had no clue what Internet Marketing was. Blogging and Website creation had become my nemesis. Yet from all that I had discovered those two things are basic requirements to an online income. I got to where even the word Affiliate caused me to grit my teeth in frustration. I was totally intimidated and wanted so badly to just quit. But I couldn't. And then this weekend I kept coming across this program called WordPress at the time I didn't even know it was a program. I punched the word into Google and found out. I had also stumbled into a Blog about Blogs, and at first I was even more intimidated. But I kept plugging along and taking notes and some how I have ended up here, at Wealthy Affiliate and there was that word again "affiliate". But after just a few minutes on this site I began to think that maybe, just maybe I have finally found a place to get the answers to so many of my unanswered questions, maybe I have found the help I so desperately need. So here I am. Ready to learn, with a re-opened mind. Wish me luck!

Well done in setting your goals our publicly. A few hundred a month is certainly a very realistic starting goal.

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! :)

Hello Steve,
Thank you for keeping touch. I have decided to become an affiliate for Wealthy Affiliate. I am excited at the possibilities involved. However I am having some trouble writing my getting started page, I just don't know how to write something original. If you have any suggestions I would really love to hear them.
I have written my about me page but have not posted/published it yet. I am a lot self-conscience about it. I really don't have a lot to say about myself so I wrote of how I got started looking for an online job.

ANY ideas or suggestions would so much be welcomed.

Thanks Terri

I am so having trouble starting my "getting started" page...I just haven't a clue where to start, what to write. I don't want it to seem as if I am copying anyone else and I certainly don't want to get any information wrong. Any ideas?

Hey Terri and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 7 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Terri, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

Again Thanks!
