About TheDummyOfWA
Joined June 2017
I live in Winnipeg, Canada! I'm a mother of 5 kids! Three from birth, and two step-children, I consider my own! I homeschooled my three youngest children from middle school on to high school! They graduated :) I used to work regularly on the internet years ago, and was making pretty good money with it, but I had to make a choice, continue working, or homeschool, and I chose my kids! A LOT has changed since those early days of working on my internet businesses! Google and their many rules for one...lol I create authority blogs now, and getting into the health authority, along with family authority, and since I'm already familiar with it! Homeschooling! I am also creating a homeschool
curriculum for K-12 with all the subjects! My youngest child (my baby son) got
married in March of 2017 (this year), and they have a baby on the way, so I will
be a grandma at 43 :) Looking forward to making money on the internet again!
"Please check out my "FOLLOW ME ON" links and I'll do the same for you!"

UPDATE! My grandson was born on July 1 (Canada Day)! His name is Gabriel (Gabe for short) He was born 4 weeks early and weighed 6.1! We had a few scares with the little one, but he is thriving and doing really well! I still have to get used to the title grandma..lol, and hard to get used to my youngest being a dad, and holding his son...but they are great parents already, and I'm already spoiling the little guy! :)

Hey now Miss. Terry, I think not sure.
3 things we in the community would probably like 2c:
1) Think more highly of yourself.
2) u decided to build your business from the laste stablished technology. Smart!
And number 3 last and not least.
3) U home schooled your children. Smart!
We become what we think about, are u with us. Yes I am a neophyte here yet I see your worth and now I hope we r in agreement. I would like to follow u as your accomplishments follow u.

Wow Terryvandal! Thanks for the follow, and a big welcome to the WA Community!

I see you have definitely accomplished quite a bit and overcame some awesome challenges that would have stopped most--but not you!

I believe with your determination, focus, and tenacious attitude, you will become a great business success here at WA. I am into my second week at WA and have already ranked #1 and page 1 on google.

Don't hesitate to reach out for help. Oh, and also use the search bar at the top of every page--I certainly did and found numerous blogs, articles, & videos with step-by-step instructions to complete whatever task I needed. For example, I put in homeschooling in the search bar and found this article by a WA member: . In his article there is another very informative link to your niche topic/area.

All the best in not only meeting but exceeding your business goals!

Congratulations on the little one coming. Thanks for the follow and you sound a little like me with the kids. I have 5 daughters and became a grandma at 44. Now I take care of the grand children to help out in between working as a nurse and on the internet as much as I possibly can at this time.
Thats great that you home schooled the kids and are getting that K-12 program going also. You sound very busy also. Best wishes to you on your WA journey.....Donna

Hi Terry! Thanks for the follow! I have 4 children and have homeschooled them all the way through. 3 graduated and I have a tenth grader left. I am thoroughly enjoying the change in life, although I loved homeschooling more than anything else I have ever done! Now I am writing and tutoring children in China if full-emersion English over the internet, which is way too fun! I hope you enjoy your new venture and have great success.

Hi there fellow homeschooling mum,
I am in Australia and took my daughter out of school to homeschool her and did that for 6mths. The reason i did this was for her own wellbeing and we both celebrate that it was our best decision. I too built her curriculum and cross referred it across the board of studies and other platforms, loved that side of things too, so I believe you will do wonders with this realm to offer your wisdom in the curriculums you build...well done!

Hi Terry, thanks for following me back. It's so cool to meet another homeschool that also works online. I came to that crossroads too to either put my children in a daycare or school during the day so that I can work day shifts like my huver, however I choose my little people as well. On the search for an overnight job.

It's so cool that you are creating a homeschool curriculum, they are becoming very popular and in demand. I recently paid for one to help me out so you are definitely on the right path. I also created a reading method to help my sun learn his phonics and blending to help him read and looking forward to making it public for all to have access to once I get put together and protected. Another legacy I'll be leaving to my children and future generations like you. GO MOMMIES GO MOMMIES :)

Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.

Hi Terry, great meeting you and thanks for following! Wow, that is quite an accomplishment to home school your kids and be a mother to five!

I'll have to check your sites out on home schooling some time...sounds very interesting! I wish I could've done this with my daughter, but she already graduated a few years ago. Bah, I feel old!

I'd love to learn more about it though since my son will be going into middle school and has a hard time learning especially around too many other kids. Plus, although the school has supposedly "bully-free" policies, they just don't work.

Anyways, thanks again and all the best to you and your family! :) ~Sherry

Entering a new phase of your life. Exciting!! Do for YOU now. A homeschool curriculum is awesome. I'm into the mental and physical benefits of meditation. But with my adopted son having learning disabilities (last week it was also decided he may be ADD), I am seriously thinking of a second niche and website. My daughter was diagnosed ADHD in 1989 and it's crazy that there isn't more information than there was then. I find that unacceptable. I will blog about that situation some day!!

Thanks and good luck. If you've done this before it doesn't take any time at all to learn new rules.

Hi Terry,

I visited your sites, and they look fantastic. I love the layout/theme of your sites. They look so professional! I really wish mine could look that good! The only thing I thought I might should mention is that on both sites, there was no info on the About page. You may already know that, but just in case, thought I would bring it up!
Reply
TheDummyOfWA Premium
Thank you about the sites! Ya, I'm still working on them! The About me pages will be up soon! They are on my other server, so have to move them to WA yet, and I'm scared that they'll be screwed up in the process of moving them over...lol

LindaKwas Premium
I understand. I transferred a domain to WA and Technical Support said they could move my site content for me but they needed the login information for the old site. Well, its an old site that I haven't written on in a long time and I forgot the login information. Now that I have moved the domain, I don't think I can go back and change or update the password. But I really am not using that domain right now anyway. Just wanted to keep it because it is my name.
Bottom Line: Back Up the information You want to move, then submit a support ticket and tell them what you want to do. Have login info for your old site available if they need it. They should be able to handle it for you. I have been very impressed with the tech support here. I had my site with another hosting company in the past, when I was just starting out and didn't know what I was doing, and tech support was reasonably good about answering my questions when I needed help, but here, they pretty much handle most difficult situations for you. What a big help they have been!

Hello Terry,
I did homeschool from 1st through 8th grade and my husband did homeschool from 4th to 12th! Everyone is surprised when they learn we were homeschooled since we both went on to do well in college and graduate with honors. I have completed all the coursework for my Master's Degree as well.

So good for you helping promote homeschool! It sounds like you are well suited to do this!

I hope you are enjoying your time at WA!

Thank you very much :) A lot of people look down on homeschool, but my adult children are doing very well for themselves! :) I used to get asked the question A LOT, "What about socializing?" The answer from me was "My children can carry on a conversation with any age group, from kids to the elderly instead of with just their peers!" They were involved in music recitals, and acting classes, and their church youth group..I figured we had all the bases covered, and I LOVED putting the curriculum together, which I am still working on for other homeschool parents while I also am a part of WA! I'm so happy to hear that you both are successful after the homeschool days :) Very nice to hear the positive stories! When my daughter has kids, she wants me to help her homeschool them, and she wants six kids....lol Anyways very pleased to meet you :)

Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile.

Terry, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Terry.

Thank you very much Kyle :) I'm really enjoying working on the affiliate bootcamp steps :) I love a challenge! It shows I have 1 starter referral from advertising, but I had a couple people say they joined under me, but it only shows 1, so I was thinking maybe because the site has lifetime cookies, they joined from my link, but they had been at the site before, so they wee put under someone else! Just a thought :) I'm also wondering if there are any template ads for forums or money Facebook groups that I can get some ideas from how best to advertise Wealthy Affiliate!

Thanks for the encouragement Kyle :)

Our affiliate program is completely automated and accurate, so if they did sign-up through your link you would have gotten credit. They must have either deleted their cookies prior to joining or joined through a different computer.

If you want me to look into this, I can definitely do that for you though. What is their username?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I think I might want to do my Niche on PTSD! I already have been putting together articles for it! I also have a homeschool blog up and running! Is there a way to transfer some of my already made blogs to WA?

Sure, you could definitely head in this direction. It is an evergreen niche.

It is quite a manual process to move a website to WA, but it can be done if it is a Wordpress based site.

You would have to follow these steps:

(1) Download your content locally
(2) Update your domain DNS settings to point to WA. Here are the DNS settings.

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

(3) Build a website here at WA using the website builder.
(4) Transfer your content over to WA

This is a very manual process and it can be done, but I don't recommend doing it if you have an established high ranking website, I don't usually recommend moving it.

If you need any further help, let me know.
