About The-Fran
Joined March 2016
Hello, I'm Fran.
You're thinking "THE Fran"? Well, "Fran" was taken. LOL. what can I say?

For some time, I wrote programs that ran network marketing companies over the web-- their commission plans, back offices, wholesale inventory, web sites, and more. I'm proud of the achievements and the innovation that I brought to this business sector.

However after a number of years away from the business, with more pressing family concerns (a father in late stages of Alzheimer's, and a mother worn to a nub caring for him), I found myself reluctant to take it up again— at least in the same way.

In network marketing, it's the case that only about 2% make 75-80% of the commission pie; 10% make fully 90% of the pie. I've seen it over and over (in the data, which doesn't lie). Why is that? That bothers me. So while there is certainly opportunity, most people don't know how to take advantage of it. And there is the rub for those who are spending hard earned money to market, often in circles.

Even with affiliate marketing, there is no hand-out. It's work. What I like about what I am seeing here on Wealthy Affiliate is a working concept of helping through community, and through a thoughtful, non-hyperventilated attitude from the top. It takes a caring and, dare I add, "humble" attitude from the top of a company, down, to make something like this work.

Not everyone is a self-starter. But those who begin such a journey have taken the most important step of all. The remaining task is follow-through—like a tennis serve, like a golf swing, like the hammer to the nail; and as I see it, the lack of it separates one from the success that they seek.

My goals here are to open my eyes and mind; learn the newest and best techniques from others who are seeing success with Wealthy Affiliate training; follow through with what I learn; and if warranted, to share what I can for the benefit of others.

Aside from programming, I enjoy researching and writing, and am involved in the world of fine art (as painter, textile designer, and promoter); love animals; gardening; decorating; reading, math problems, mentoring, bible study, and (the list is long...) life in general. At age 25, my textiles toured 100 U. S. museums. By age 40, I had taken 3 companies public.

Sometimes accomplishments--just like 1960 behemoth computers--become irrelevant; as when the world shrinks from a giant conference room and miles of airline trips, to a desktop, then a small device. And that is when character comes into play-- a certain fearlessness and gumption, an admitted state of readiness to make changes. I'm there.

Please feel free to introduce yourself below. I look forward to learning about you and your journey.

Great to see that you've added some goals Fran!

Working towards achieving these goals will happen as you take action on the lesson tasks here at WA. Ask questions when you have them, and take your time. This is not a race, and your time investment will have you up and running before you know it!

You're going to do just great!

Honored to follow you herein 'the Fran.' ;-} Sriously though, careful be the fool who doesn't eventually run into you here @ WA. Your perspective, experience, and in-depth understanding of all that occurred in your life (and perhaps even an understanding of the 'why') and your ability to transform that intowhat I suspect will be a wildly incredible ride.

It is indeed a rollercoaster - this thing we refer to as a life. But man, what a ride. Continue to breathe, let the wind do what it will to your hair, let the sky reflect in your eye, and allow sound keep you to the ground. Heck, if you drive, I'll steer ... or brake ... or hit the gas.

Y'know why it is that people have a tendency to talk behind your back, Right? It's to keep you lookin' over your shoulder because they don't wish to lose you to the road less traveled! Success. Just remember the real reason ... it's because they are 'behind' you. Watch out though, I'm trying diligently to catch up.

Open to critique for my 'work in progress' site. The pages are being edited as we speak and I expect the weekend I'll publish new content as well as fill in the blanks. I respect your experience and look forward to you slappin' me upside the noggin' about things I can do, change, and share.

Be Well, Be Safe, & Be YOU! See you on the road less traveled where it seems we're all headed the same direction. I remain ...

... Earnestly, DJ

Hi Fran! just installed your code that opens links in a new tab,apparently, it opens only the sites I refer, old posts and referral links open in the same page,

Just wanted to know if you could help me to make all my links open in new tab.

Maybe it's good to have internal links open in the same page, but sometimes I would link to an old post in the introduction of my post and It doesn't make sense to open in the same page.

I would appreciate it so much if you could help me fix this! -Anis
Reply
The-Fran Premium
Hi, Anis!

You're speaking of my tiny JavaScript from here: You know how in the instructions on my blog post, I mention that the script should go (as a kind of widget) in a section that is common to all of the posts? Without seeing your setup, Anis, my best guess is that perhaps your old posts do not contain that section where you placed the text widget.

In my example, I chose a footer section. So for instance, if you put yours in a footer section and these older posts don't have that section, then the script would not affect them. That is the first thing I would suggest you check, Anis. First look at your widgets and identify the section where you placed the code. Then go back and look at a couple of the unaffected old posts and see if they actually contain that section. If not, see if you can identify a better section that is common to all of the posts.

Let me know if this helps, or what you have discovered, and I am happy to help you futher. If you would like to take our conversation into my blog for that post, it could help others, too, that might face the same dilemma in the future.

Thanks for the question. Always feel free to ask me.

i came here less then a month ago but i dont feel like im getting to far and as much as i do respect the comunity and see how amazing it is i cant be spending money really unless i see or know the future profits... so im considering canceling b4 the moth is over...
Reply
The-Fran Premium
Eli, the fact that you are already working as an Amazon affiliate puts you ahead of the curve.

Have you looked at the "Live Video Classes" link? Although these are live each Friday, the recorded sessions are all under this link. Searching around you should find some with valuable information for your situation.

Are you currently following the concept of building a niche to make the most of your Amazon affiliation? The reason I ask is because the niche concept once built successfully with one can be rinse and repeat. The Live Video training expands on the basics taught by Kyle. We explore tools, SEO, and all topics in more depth, and in real time. Check it out.

So many are anxious to get started with it, early on, and then are disappointed because Google wants to wait awhile to see how the site goes. But that has led us to such a great conversation about your site. You are really making the most of that Rachel. I truly applaud you.

Hi it's Mat. Wow, what a exiting story. Totally agree on the numbers above. Of course you can make to the higher ranks a network marketing company, but you'll need the same skills as in ANY other global company to reach the top. There are a lot of false promises... ...that makes me sad, because there are amazing people involved, and often amazing products. But the business model is a bit outdated in my point of you. You can market ANY product online if you use the right strategy and w/o requiting and pitching others. Love your profile. Sending you some good vibes. Stay Tuned.

Hi, Mat! I'm so glad you came by. Your message here is strong, and supportive. Indeed there are false promises in MLM. Even if not intentional, they are at the very least hype.

Fran, I can relate to your father's passing. My mom passed from dementia. It must have been about 15 years of mental decline. She was a very independent, smart woman. She ran into the glass ceiling in the corporate world. So she quit and started her own company at age 64.
Reply
The-Fran Premium
Wow, what an inspiring story of your mother. I'd love to hear more about that! Yes, my Dad slid into his final stages gradually, as well—over a period of 13 years. The first year was a total shock to me. But it's seems evident that, early on, those affected with dementia are aware of their slipping memory, and will admit concern about it, actually.

As to your Mom, she has provided you with infinite inspiration and can't have helped but pass on her spirit and energy and verve for turning challenges into opportunities.

Hey Fran, Have you ever wondered why someone, anyone of the many people who chose to follow you, did?

I would hazard a guess it's the life you put into your writing...in website/blogging terms, it's the content. Or as I prefer to call it, the content of the content.

I just read your profile and I truly appreciate the thoughtfulness of what you expressed, and the easy flow you created with that expression. Your passion for writing shows, your connection to your audience is felt, your voice is both clear and assuring.

I believe we follow because we recognize truth, and more so sincerity in you. Thank you.

Hi, Allan!
What a great introduction to you. I love your turn of phrase, "content of the content". And I understand exactly what you mean by it—that is the meat and potatoes of what we technically, or by definition, label as "content". Fantastic.

You gave me a great gift, Allan, with your generous analysis of the character of my writing. Thank you.

Moreover, your post here, allowed me to explore your profile. Some say only a little about themselves; and I understand that. But yours is a meaningful introduction to the things that matter to you. (More, over there, where I'm heading now.)

Hi Fran training is a bit slow. I'm having difficulty with the word press. I'm going to search out WordPress in the training and study it. Thanks for asking
Reply
The-Fran Premium
It can be confusing. WordPress is not organized the way my brain thinks about these things; so it was extremely confusing to me at first. While I have sorted most things out, I have complete empathy for you and others new to the format.

Loubelle, one of the best pieces of advice that Kyle repeats in the training, is to keep the theme simple; keep the page simple. You'll see many people here using lots of fancy plugins—they do add special interactivity to the page. But these are advanced features that for the most part are not necessary. Sticking to "simple" allows you to focus on writing content.

Hi, Fran!
I've read some of your comments, and because were detailed, I'd like to ask for your help (if you don't have time, I understand)!
This is the problem: When I tested my site, I received the same errors, but I don't understand how to fix them.

Maybe on June 23 you will be able to write training for solving the problem (there isn't any tutorial about that here @WA).

Thank you in advance!

Thanks, Cristina. How are you? I just made a huge, long reply to Jovo, at the link you provided thee. However, the solution to the problem is very complex with WordPress, although easy in a normal web page environment. Read that in order to at least understand what is going on and why page load is affected.

I really need to research plugins before doing such a training, but yes, that's a good idea. I'll add it to my list. Thanks!

Hi, Nat!
Yes, WA is pretty much like night and day, when related to network marketing. It's not that network marketing in general is bad. I think most people involved, including those who start companies have good intentions most of the time.

It's just that a lot of people get lost in it, because the focus is on recruiting others to do the work. Many can't do that; so there is an inordinate imbalance between those who succeed their wildest dreams and the masses who fail. Taking responsibility for one's own commission making is the affiliate marketing way; although it's not necessarily easy either. Thank goodness for WA—such a refreshing approach with tremendous guidance .

Good to meet you, too, Nat! I'll be over at your profile soon.

Hey Fran - yep I agree and can see that. I think a lot go into it believing they will succeed and make a tonne of money too. I think many networking companies do market it that way as well, rather than the reality that a majority fail. Affiliate marketing certainly isn't easy either - that's for certain! :) I feel very lucky to have found WA when I did - I could have quite easily taken another path. Good to meet you too - Nat

Hi Fran,

I really enjoyed reading your life experiences that brought you to WA.

I couldn't stop reading your answers to the questions asked below.

You have a gift.

I am a newbie with a lot to learn and admittedly I am impressed with Kyle, the training, and everyone connected with Wealthy Affiliates.

I have a lot to learn, but feel I am in good hands.

It is my pleasure to meet you and follow you. Thank you for all that you unselfishly do for us.

Take care,
Bill

Yes, Kyle is a great trainer, I agree, Bill. He takes his time and makes sure a concept is thoroughly explained. Then besides the complete video, he types out and illustrates the main points in the post.

Bill, one thing at which you're not a newbie, is networking with people. You had to have been very good at that, in order to reach the level you did, inside the MLM program mentioned in your profile.

Affiliate Marketing has the potential to be much easier, less stressful, and without the legal cloud that often hangs just above the heads of marketers in a successful MLM. That's because you are in control of some of the major pieces:
- choice of focus (out of millions of niches)
- choice of product to promote (out of millions of products)
- fine tuned marketing (via writing and SEO)
- no obligation or responsibility for the sales or stick-to-it-tive-ness of a downline
- fingers pointing at "pyramid scheme" become a past memory

In addition, built into affiliate marketing is the ability to be flexible and nimble, for reasons of your own, whether that is following market trends, or responding to events. This affects income stream.

Indeed, Bill, I imagine you landed at WA for a reason. I appreciate every encouraging word you said. Thanks for coming to visit!

You are right about the percentages, very few make it to a 'real' income! I think any new venture is exciting, we have what I call the romance period, it looks like your world is going to change. Then there is the reality period, things aren't going as expected and this is when doubts start slowing down the process and we think we don't have any worthwhile ideas. This is the hardest place to be and where we spend the longest time! Conviction is what is needed and a plan otherwise you fall by the wayside. There is no quick fix, no magic bullet......it really is about the work and working it until it works. Anyway after all that rambling I love your story and I am happily following you and wish you all the best Fran! Regards, Michael.

Hi, The Fran...
Hal Aaron Cohen here. You have quite a list of accomplishments. A WA member would be crazy not to follow you. I read your advice to Chrissie regarding Preview after I had written pretty much the same. Didnt mean to duplicate. Thanks for confirming my thoughts about network marketing, too. For me, the main difference is that in affiliate marketing, we are not limited to the products we choose to endorse or review. Or stuck with inflated prices and an obligation to buy our own company products.

Anyway, thanks for being in WA. I'm happy to be in your network. Wishing you continued success!

Hal, hi! What a nice note and introduction.

When I went back to plus-1 Chrissies reply, I saw your comment and thought, "Good! a man who knows the drill". :) Don't worry, I'm never concerned about duplication. In fact, you added to the conversation with even more uses for the tool.

You make really good points about affiliate marketing 1) in how it differs from network marketing, by its unlimited choice of products and services; and 2) how one is never "stuck"—with anything, actually—a company, a marketing plan, or even the debt caused by backing the wrong horse, so to speak.

Well I'm honored by the follow, Hal; and am off to scope out your profile. Thank you!

Hi there, Miglena. Thanks so much for stopping by to introduce yourself. This is the sweetest image with the baby.

I read your profile about the "added duties". This is just so common these days. It's happened to friends and my sister over the years; and just makes everyone "work, work, work" with little energy left over for themselves. And when in management, there's not equivalent extra salary for the extra work load. (I'm sure you noticed. lol.)

I hope you get your niches going with WA training. I think the training is exceptional.

I hear you, Dan. And those are the ones with the big, (mostly) better reputations. There are thousands of small companies that come and go in just one or two years.

For the smaller companies, top producers— in order to maintain income—promote what becomes an addictive sequence of hopping from one "opportunity" to another, all in the name of "get in early!". While it benefits the leaders (at least for a while), their followers get sucked dry over time.

I am well acquainted with the perils of that business model and of various marketing plans.

Fortunately there is WA to retrain ex-MLM'ers in niche affiliate marketing.

I know very little about programming, so I will be following you to learn.
I do have a question to ask you, and maybe you don't know.

Is it possible to place an alt tag into youtube videos embeded code, or after it somehow? Thank you in advance!
Chas
Reply
The-Fran Premium
Chas, thanks for the compliment and the follow.

When you say embedded, I am supposing that you are using the YouTube "embed" code provided; which also means you using an iframe tag which sets the src to the youtube video.

Correct?

First, it's not a big deal, but just know that "alt" is an attribute within a tag, and not a tag, itself. No biggie; you'll understand in a moment.

What is your goal, so that I can focus and shorten my answer.
- Is it for SEO purposes?
- Do you want the tool-tip like tag below the cursor, to describe the video link?
- Anything else?

--Fran

p.s. You can add the alt attribute to any tag; but that doesn't make it valid (as per the case in the iframe tag) or the best solution. That's why I ask these questions, above; so that I can suggest the best solution.
Reply
3chas80 Premium
Hi Fran,
I am talking about the videos we embed/share in our websites.
I always get the seo telling me I have no alt tag for my image(which is the youtube video) so, yes it is for SEO purposes.

I don't know what the "tool tip like tag below the cursor" is? sorry :( you know a lot more than I do for sure.

I simply want to label the video with my keywords so that search engines/and readers can see the video and describe it. And my yoast seo will quit complaining. lol Just as we label images with alt tags before we post to our sites, so SEO knows what the image is, and finds our keywords.

Is it possible to do that, and be valid for seo? Thank you Fran for taking the time to help, it is truly appreciated!
Chas
Reply
The-Fran Premium
Well the video is not an image, it is an embedded video, if you are grabbing the code from YouTube > share > embed.

And those embedded videos are contained in an iframe tag. Alt is not legal in the iframe tag. But "title" is. And it accomplishes the same thing for SEO purposes.

For example:
<iframe src="example-youtube-url-goes-here" title="your short description" width="560" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>...and then the endtag of course.
Reply
3chas80 Premium
Aaaaah, I see. That is why it wouldn't work when I put alt = " and my tag in there!" I will certainly try title= "keywords here "
Yes, I was trying to duplicate the code for images and their alt tags! No wonder it wouldn't work! Knowledge is power!..lol
Thank you so much Fran!
Reply
The-Fran Premium
Chas, one more thing:
No spaces between attribute="attribute value". The quoted value can have spaces. But there should be no space between title, the = sign, and the quoted value. It must look like this:
title="..."
or
alt="..."
Okay?
:)

--Fran

p.s. In PHP, JavaScript, Perl, Java, Python, Ruby, or other function code, one can use such spaces; but not for attributes in HTML tags, and especially not in XHTML (which is what WordPress uses and which is more strict with tags). That could cause an error, although most browsers adjust for it and DWIM (Do What I Mean).
Reply
3chas80 Premium
Fran,
That is so awesome! That is exactly what I wanted. The iframe never said anything ....in the code...to tell people/SEO what the video is displaying...now it does!! Yay!

Ok, no spaces for title=" ". That explains a lot...lol...caused a few errors so I did!!

And I found an alt tag mistake on an image...wasn't the video.
I learned a bunch her from you Fran, Thank You!

And I can sneak in more keyword titles!! That's what I wanted!
I think quite a few people will like this information, who didn't know before!

I love learning from my own mistakes. It's really then that the lightbulb goes on. You sound like you react the same to those Eureka moments.

Now, be very careful to not keyword-stuff your pages. This is something Google frowns on as "unnatural".

I'm not saying you are; but just follow Kyle's trainings on this.
--Fran
Reply
3chas80 Premium
yes, that is why I wanted to label the videos...by using titles and alt tags for images, it allows us to get some free SEO boost. Naturally!

I think google likes it when we label our pictures and videos, right? I know the readers/robots for the blind and handicapped need those labels or it is a blank area on our sites.
Reply
The-Fran Premium
Generally speaking, "yes", providing alt for images and titles for other common elements for accessibility purposes is good.

It used to also help SEO. It's not clear whether it still does—tests vary. But I think it's a good thing as long as one isn't using it to do keyword stuffing.

Because Google and other search engines are very smart and don't like keyword stuffing and know it when they see it.

Kyle has some very good points on this throughout his training on keywords.
Reply
3chas80 Premium
yes, Kyle does teach that, and I am not keyword stuffing. I only use the words 2 or 4 times in a 2000 word article. Yoast says use it more.

The images and videos are supposed to be relevant to your article. so, the title of the picture will most likely contain your keyword, as will a title or some part of your content. How would you talk about it, if you didn't use them?

Thanks for introducing yourself!
--Fran
Reply
The-Fran Premium
Helen, I did just check out your site. It was green in my Mac browsers: Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Opera. So they all agreed. But this was easy to ferret out, and will be easy for you to solve.

In your theme's style.css file, the body background is actually defined as not only having the green background (#00ff00); but also having a smiley gif image as the background. Fortunately the background image was non-repeating, or you would be seeing a million or smiley face gifs, too.

Go into Appearance > Edit. In the right column there, select your theme's child theme, if you have one; otherwise the theme name.
Once the list of files pops up, scroll down to style.css and click it. Usually it's near the base of that column.

Once style.css is up in the large, textarea field, on the left; search for the body definition. Inside that definition will be the line:

background: #00ff00 url("smiley.gif") no-repeat fixed center;

Change it to:
/*background: #00ff00 url("smiley.gif") no-repeat fixed center;*/

Unfortunately the attached image, below has an overlay that covers up the ending marks. But they are critical.

Those marks, at beginning and end "comment out" the line, and will remove the green (and the smiley.gif) from your background.

Finally: don't forget to press the "Update file" button, which submits the form.

:)
Fran

p.s. Ideally you have or create a child theme and make these changes in the style.css in the child theme. Otherwise, if this definition is part of your theme, the next time you upgrade the theme, you will be back to square one.

p.p.s. AFTER you make the changes, empty your browser CACHE. Do it a couple of times, before refreshing the site. Everything should be back to normal, then.

I know people love Word, and you were probably just copying my notes to follow along; but just be careful to never use it for programming code, including HTML or CSS.

The reason is because Word converts certain very important characters like double and single quotes—into publisher's marks; meaning into fancy, embellished text. That usually kills code, because code has to be "plain text". Use Nodepad, instead, if you are on a Windows system.

Congratulations, again, Helen!

I only create content on word, not code. I need to organise it before I put it on here.

Thanks for the info on where the css sheet was. Who would have guessed it at the bottom of that list.

How does #333 translate into a hex, rgb etc colour?

Now for my other (so far) question. I am doing a new post and want to put a 'watermark' at the top left. Now I can do this when I use the w3school tutorial, and it works fine. But I can't figure it out on my theme. Any ideas (and I am really sure you do have some).
Reply
The-Fran Premium
I missed your #333 color code question:
That is a shortcut for #333333 (6 3's). Go here to the second tool down: to input #333333 and see what it looks like: http://html-color-codes.info

------------------
Watermarks require complex CSS, more than I'd want to go into here, because there are so many variables, positioning, etc.

But If it works in the w3 school tutorial, you should be able to copy that directly to the "text" tab of the editor and it should work anywhere, (although I have not reviewed the tutorial).

I did find that one of my themes actually removes some things I add through the text tab; acting as a sort of godfather of code (which I don't much appreciate. lol.) Is your code still there after you save it, exactly as you pasted it? If not, it could be a function of the theme, and not your copy and pasted code.

All that said, Helen, I have to ask:
Is the goal to not have your images taken?

If so, I recommend adding your watermark in Photoshop Elements, or GIMP, or whatever your image software is. Because, then, when your image is uploaded to WP, that watermark will appear in all of the sizes WP saves back. You'll just have to watch cropping, when editing, that you don't crop off the watermark.

(Essentially you 1. create a new blank layer over the background image. 2. Type in your watermark, style it, and move it into place. 3. Adjust the opacity on that watermark layer—lowering the percentage, with the slider, until it looks like you want it; and 4. Save.)

Watermarking images with CSS is no protection, really; because it's easily circumvented. Whereas, watermarking an image permanently with imaging software is a pretty good safeguard.

I took the code from w3 and typed it into the text page. It kept disappearing except for a bit that showed on the visual page, not the text page! I don't have image software as I only fool around with canva, pixar and paint. The result I want is to be able to type over the watermark and still have google read it.
Reply
The-Fran Premium
Oh, you want google to read it. hmmm. Well it sounds like you might also have a theme that wants to be the "godfather of code", like one of mine.

I haven't used any of those, so I don't know if they have layering capabilities. They might. GIMP is free software, with tutorials on the web.

I was about to log out Helen, but if you will PM me really quick with the link to the w3 school tutorial, I'll take a look and see what they are providing, to see if there is a workaround for your theme.

We can continue the discussion there.

------
Edit. Helen, I'm PM'ing you to suggest two strategies via CSS, one using inline style, which is probably what is being deleted by your theme. And if so, then a second approach, adding some CSS definitions to your style.css.

Then, I'm logging out for the night. :))

I am just lucky to land on your page and to discover somebody to follow who is accomplished and extreme knowledgeable.I was pleased to see that you still regard your parents because that is one of Moses's Laws with a promise that if you honor your father and mother you will have a happy and long life.I can also see that according to your ranking you are already among the top and I also have great aspirations to get there one of these coming years.
May you be blessed in each and every of your endeavors. Thomas.

Thomas, hello back!
What a sweet message to read first, on my arrival to WA this morning. Thank you so much. Being by my mother's side since my father's death, helping her stay in her home, has not been without its daily challenges, because, historically, we have never gotten along well. But I'm constantly reminded that it's the right thing to do, regardless of all else. I owe my life to her and Dad. Thank you, Thomas for your own precious and poignant encouragement in that regard..

Your note also caused me to look up at my rank. I can hardly believe that is within the top 200. Amazing! Really, though, in my case, it is based strictly on my activity here. I do like to help.

Thanks for the follow! (Oops, I see you are not yet following. I take it you meant to. :) If you have started working on a website, Thomas, you might like a new article series I'm working on, regarding links. Just posted part 1, yesterday, which lays the groundwork for the series.

Really nice to meet you.

Wow, Fran... fascinating profile. I was Head of Network Marketing for a company here in South Africa, we use to employ a programmer like you, who was super bright. I can tell you are the same. :)

The-Fran Premium
Hi, Lauren Jean!
Do you use both names?
Network Marketing was, at one time, my niche in application development. Lots of NDAs. lol. I enjoyed helping entrepreneurs get their membership sites, backrooms, and inventory apps off the ground and rocking. Life happens though, and I got away from it and started working on other things. So nice to meet you. And thanks for the comment! Very much appreciated.

Hello, Fran :)
My father also passed away with Alzheimer's, so I feel for you and your mother. I took on the role of taking care of him full time and it was a,as you say wearing one to a nub.
Glad to be following you.
Reply
The-Fran Premium
Yes, I can only imagine what you encountered in your role with your dad. Thanks so much for sharing that, Edmund. I understand you better already.

It meant a lot to help out, and provide relief for my mother. Dad was a good sport to the end, although tired. That "end" is always unexpected, even when you know it's coming soon.

Really appreciate the follow!

HI Fran! I found you in a comment on Loes' blog. I'm happy to meet you. It's wonderful how you're helping your mom through this struggle with you father's Alzheimers. I just bookmarked your post on tiny script...will read it as many times as I need to for it to sink in!!! :-)

Cheryl, hi! So nice to meet you. Thank you.

Let me know when you get ready to implement one of the two tiny scripts, if your goal matches one of the 3 mentioned in the article. (Otherwise, you don't need either of the scripts. :)

I'll be happy to answer any questions then. It really is a very easy solution; there's nothing to be afraid of. But I'm here. ;)

I appreciate your comment!

Just read your profile. Fran, sorry to read you are in the stage of having to cope with Alzheimer disease. My father passed away 2 years ago, his last weeks, he was totally lost in this, what became for him, so complexed world.

I hope your mom has the strength to ask for help, instead of trying to wipe out the problems.

See you around Fran, and when you just need that someone listens to you, and want to vent, don't hesitate to send me a PM

Thank you, dear Loes, for your kind words.

I was happy that I could be with my father the last months of his life, and also help my mother out. Thankfully, he's at peace now. My mom is back to playing bridge and her other activities; but it's been a big adjustment. Dad seemed to be in love with her until the day he died. It's difficult to lose a person who loves you so much.

See you around!

Hi, Tom!
Hey thanks!

So, my burning question after reading your two, first posts is: what niche did you choose? (Or did it choose you?)

:)
--Fran
Reply
TomMoore Premium
Hi Fran...you are welcome. The niche I chose was how to cook a specific type of food. Using the WA Keyword tool helped in the selection process. I was looking for a niche that could provide me income within the shortest amount of time. The long tail keyword/niche I chose is very specific, has more than the required hits per month (over 200), the competition is quite light, and the article power is more than 8. I'm not really concerned with how much money this niche will provide, just that it generates some. I need to see some success. I'm quite certain it will...lol!
If this long tail keyword approach to finding niches works, I can then create many sites using the same criteria, and hopefully, each will create some income.
As soon as I have the site up, I'll send you a link.

The-Fran Premium
Tom, That sounds great!

Do you listen to Jay's recorded "Live Video Classes"?
I just started tuning into the live classes and listen to a recording every couple of days. It seems he does very well with that exact plan of action. If it works for him, it will work for you.

Now I'm anxious to get the link. Keep me posted!

Hello Fran - I am now a fan. It is really interesting to see someone who has had success in the business, art and textile world join this community.

You mention your textile designs, I am now fascinated and would like to see them, so this is an official request.

I really like your writing style, very friendly. In fact I read your blogs, then went on line - is that you on you-tube showing me how to create digital art. You are a busy and talented woman.

Best Regards
Keith.

The-Fran Premium
Hi Keith! So nice to hear from you and know that I have a new fan.
You know I have recently been thinking about my neglected youtube channel—that I should take some old videos down and add some newer ones. Yes, you must have found my (very old) tutorials on YouTube specifically regarding layering in PS/E (Photoshop Elements).

Do you enjoy art, Keith? That's nice to know. Thanks so much!

I'm interested to see what is your niche, or at least where you are headed with one.

--Fran

Keith10 Premium
Hi Fran, thanks for the reply. Yes I am interested in art, enjoy visiting galleries and occasionally dabble in acrylics.

My youngest daughter has a talent but is not interested in pursuing beyond having fun.

I have always been mesmerised by steam engines, so my original niche was traveling on steam trains, hoping to generate interest.

However, I'm crap at writing content, I started but got bogged down, mind wanders all over the place, the result is a pile of unrelated paragraphs.

So I then went onto the bootcamp courses and the same thing has happened.

There is a pile of motivational, inspirational and instructional blogs here about content writing, so I'm convinced my skills will improve.

I always finish what I have started, it is my ninja way.

Plan A, complete bootcamp and go back to trains.

Thanks for showing interest Fran.

Keith.

The-Fran Premium
Steam train travel...I love it! Have you traveled on a steam train recently? If not, then it sounds like it's time to pack your bags. Take a good phone and record audio, video, all your thoughts, and even a few selfies (and definitely one with the conductor); and you will have plenty to start writing about. Exciting stuff, Keith!

Speaking of Art, it did not end up being my career path, either. But in the past several years, while promoting other artists, I've found a new voice in "oils", myself. I'm sure your daughter will always love art and probably incorporate her innate creativity and vision into everything she does in life. Creativity is never "unlearned"; and is always useful.

Great to visit with you, Keith!

So nice to hear from you, Priyesh. Thank you for your encouraging comment. I'm not sure that I'm so passionate...maybe more compassionate. That may not be so bad, either.

Yes it's good to be compassionate. As they say, the good always wins...be that compassion, generosity or just being good to people:)

I have not thought of a niche as yet. I have started working on the affiliate bootcamp for the mean time. Check out my sight if you get a chance...earnathome.org. There isn't much but any comments would be much appreciated.
Unfortunately due to my current circumstances, I am not able to spend as much time as I would wish to, but hopefully that would change in about 2 weeks and then I can do a lot more than what I currently am doing:)

Hey F 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 5 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 F, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve
