I live in BC, Canada in a beautiful Mountain community. I enjoy many things from super fun outdoor activity (esp. snow sports), to arts and cultural entertainment, to great food and amazing coffee.

Looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship.

Hi Chris, I love your theme. What is it? I'd like to keep it in mind for my next site one day. I saw a huge very successful site survivallife.com using the same theme also. It's a good one I'm obsessed with the news ticker and the widgets rock!

Hi Brittany, my site theme is 'MH Theme Magazine'. The free version is 'Magazine Lite'. I found I was missing some key options with the freebie, so I forked over for the upgrade to the premium version.

I'm glad you like it, I guess it's pretty good, but I've nothing really to compare it to. Obsessed with the news ticker hey, how interesting? I do like the widgets too, but I didn't realize they were so unique to themes, I assumed most themes could display the same widgets.

Feel free to PM me anytime if you want to continue discussion.

Ciao

I love your site, I posted under your response to my site on "give me feedback" I hope you see it! I have a question- I see on your site a beautiful ad on the top right of your site. It is scrolling and changes and is color. Is the google ads? Why is it so much nicer than the other boring google ads and how did you get it!? Please tell me!!!

Hi Brittany!Thx for the post and comments, so nice to get all this.

The ad running top right on my site is a Google Adsense unit, its not always the same though (rotates or cycles with othere ads), and therefore not always attractive looking. Its nice when they serve up a good looking one, but unfortunately they're not all created equally.

Hope this helps, chin up though, your website looks amazing, no worries there.

Yep, just one week in, and I'm loving it. Actually, I was loving it from the first day onwards. Can't believe how much I've learned since being here....
One of the things that struck me from the get-go was the sheer enthusiasm and positivity in this place. No wonder everyone here is happy!

Hey Chris ,

I just wanted to follow up and see if you need anything. I see you've already taken action and completed your account profile! That's wonderful! It just goes to show you're able to follow directions and are serious about making this business work! Trust me when I say that's half the battle to success online! So you're part of a rare breed! However I see you haven't upgraded to the premium membership.

If it's because money is tight, I can hook you up. Read the following as you'll learn how others have been able to easily pay for this membership: http://bit.ly/afford_wa

At the end of the day you're obviously an action taker unlike a lot of people that may join this community and fail to do anything. As such you should be rewarded for that. So I wanted to remind you of the special bonus I'm offering you:

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the next 4 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(1) You are going to get a 59% DISCOUNT on your first month Premium membership (only $19)

(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there and even the owners of WA (Kyle & Carson) will be able to offer you personal mentoring.

(3) I am going to be giving a special "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in the next 4 days!

You're obviously not required to take advantage of this great offer. But the starter membership can only take you so far. It's clear as day you want to succeed. Otherwise you wouldn't have completed your profile. So I'd like to hook you up with the bonus above!

There is so much more in the way of videos, courses, live chat and private message capabilities that will help you get to the next level quicker. So keep that in mind. In fact, just check out the differences between the starter and premium membership here:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/kyle/blog/the-premium-membership-in-a-league-of-its-own

I think it will help you see all that you'll get if you take advantage of the bonus and discount I'm offering you. In any event, great job again for taking action and completing your profile!

Keep taking action because every time you do it brings you closer to your success!

Take care,

Eddy with a Y

P.S. Remember if you can't afford the premium membership, I can hook you up here: http://bit.ly/afford_wa

Hi Eddy, I read you load and clear my friend. I'm definitely a doer, so no worries taking action here. In fact I finished off the 10 starter lessons and have the foundation of my website now too.

I do have financial concerns though, and this is slowing my upgrade at the moment. See my post in the 'getting started' classroom overview. I've been asking people if there are ways to move my site along as a free starter member, and then upgrade later when it's closer to gaining success. Sadly I doubt this is possible, and likely I will upgrade sooner. Probably take advantage of the $19 promo, I feel like crap though because my familie's Christmas is not going to be all that.

I've already sold everything that isn't nailed down on CL. Been in a tough time this year, got laid off from a mining job, and in a economically troubled area, have been forced to take a low paying job to keep our home. So, $50/mth would be a lot easier to swallow if I was able to first bring my website to the point of driving traffic to it. And I suspect this is going to take at least a few months, so it would be great if I could keep moving for awhile longer without upgrading.

Alas, I don't think I will get far without moving onto level 2 though, so I'll have to figure out a way to cover the fees until the site is profitable. Needless to say, if 5 or 6 months along this doesn't show promise, but appears to be a wild goose chase, I'll cut my losses sooner than I might have if I had more free starter time to develope.

Thx for checking in Eddy, talk soon.

Chris

Hey Chris,

I can totally appreciate your situation. The starter membership provides you with the basic tools and training to build your business. But the premium membership obviously helps you get further because of the extended training and support.

That said it sounds like you're in a tight financial situation and I would hate for you to just give this a go for few months and then giving up because you haven't seen a profit yet.

Because the reality is you can spend months without seeing a dime and that's actually normal as you're building the foundation for your business. People tend to give up because they can't see the finish line but they're actually moving closer to it every day. And that may happen to you as you're ready to "cut your losses".

But again I understand your financial situation. So ultimately you have decide if it's better to just wait this out until you can dedicate the time it will take to see this through. Rather than just giving yourself a "few months" to see if it might work of not.

So give that some thought. I keep it very real with people and let them know this has to be a long term play to see results. So I don't want to lead you astray and make it seem like a few months is enough. For some people it is for others it can take much longer. I just can't predict where youll be.

I hope this helps and gives you some insight.
