About Thischick
Joined August 2015
Hi all! I am currently a 42 year old stay at home mom since the birth of my son 9 months ago. My son was born with severe eczema and he's highly allergic to milk as well. These last few months since my son was born have been filled with challenges and frustrations beyond just the usual sleep deprivation that having a a baby brings. These frustrations turned out to be too much for my partner so I am a single mom as well. So now that I'm facing going back to work in a couple of months I'm actually kind of dreading it. My job was quite demanding in the food industry and most days were twelve hour days easy. I can't see myself leaving my son with strangers for that length of time each day just to make ends meet. So I've been formulating a plan to go back to work part time and supplement my part time income earning online somehow. I am however a total noob so I'm not even sure just yet if it can be done or if I can do it. I've been doing lots of reading and decided to pick what I thought would be the best route to accomplishing my goal and Wealthy Affiliate seems like a good place to learn and get started. I found my way here through Steve Razinski at ivetriedthat and he sounds like a legit sort of guy so here I am. Bring on the success!

Missing you:-)
I thought of you and said a prayer. I see your rank says you are still around but I could not bring up your website.
I too have let my rank go down as I am not interested in what it takes to maintain it.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your son to find a way
for your plans and dreams to come true.
I remember our good times and hope better things lie ahead.

Best regards,
Marty

Good Luck to you and thanks for being a friend!

Hi Lori, I read through some of your blogs and OMG, can you write! And I love the cloth diaper niche – it is so important to provide good information to people on the topic!

I have been a childbirth educator and doula so I have a little knowledge of what you are dealing with regarding your adorable little one. I hope some of the advice that others here have offered about possible remedies and treatments, along with your own wisdom as the Mom, is starting to help – though I know it can take time, and superhuman patience!

Despite all the intense challenges and hard circumstances, I wish you will enjoy many special and peaceful moments during the holidays!
All the best,
Isabella

Lori, 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 Lori.

Hi. Welcome to WA. Boy are you lucky to have found this site so early in your decision to work online. I spent years and lots of money on dead end scams, so look at what you have saved already! Your baby looks wonderful. You know, sometimes it's better to be a single Mom. For you as well as the baby. Having a great adult relationship is a lifelong endeavor. Raising a child in a balanced loving environment is impossible if the adult relationships supporting it are unstable. Your boy's eczema will disappear now that he's feeling more secure in your love and the fear is gone. Mothering is very demanding work. You will appreciate the little time you have to give completely to yourself instead of having to give that little time away to your adult partner. Relationships can come later. You'll know when. Thanks for the follow. I'll follow you back. I'll check out your website and I wish you all the very best of luck monetizing your site. Stick with it, You'll make it.

Hi Lori, My accounting business pays the bills and my charity takes up a lot of my time, so the ukulele is on the back burner and the online work is still not much more than high school homework BUT I'm happy and chugging along. I visited your site and left a comment.

You definitely cannot go wrong becoming a premium member. The first month being only $19 means it's less than a dollar a day for you to continue learning for the next 30 days. Worth every penny in my opinion and then you don't have to rush yourself either and you can let the things you are learning really sink in :)

Hi Lina,

Thank you for the kind words. I cannot wait to have some online income to support my little family. Part time work is all I want right now but it's hard to survive on part time wages. I saw a really nice job today online but the commute is 1 hour each way. So at least 10 hours each day away from my son. I just can't do it. He's not ready for others to "try and figure him out" yet. I will just have to keep chipping away every day until I get there.

Thanks for the follow and I left you a website comment my dear :)

Hi Ches,

I am enjoying WA very much even if some days I can't make heads or tails of some things. That's when I walk away for awhile and think it through. I drive myself crazy wanting everything to be "perfect" though and that seems to be a never-ending thing. We have the same WA anniversary date and we are both coming up on the 2 month mark. I predict exciting things will start to happen for us soon. A nice slippery slide of good fortune for the both of us...so wear appropriate footwear my dear :)

Thanks for your kind words and I wish you all the best :)

hey

thank you for helping me with my syney theme blog roll.

I am still heaving problems with it though and you are the only person who gave me a smart answer, i followed your steps to correct the images but once I saved it my entire website went down. and it didnt work. The website is back online now.

I not sure what happened but this is really bugging me as I can't contact anyone to help me with it.

What do you suggest I do ?

thank you
Reply
Thischick Premium
Hey Jaxon,

Send me a pm with your website link in it. Tell me what it is that you want to accomplish and I will do my best to help you achieve that. If you don't have any examples of what it is that you are looking for that's okay too. I can walk you through getting those featured images in the place you want them without a visual too.

Is it still those darned featured images that are giving you a problem? I did practice it out first on my test website before I gave you the information and it worked beautifully on my end. Perhaps the code was entered in the wrong place or something. I can certainly help you with what you are hoping to achieve.

Cheers,
Lori

Hey Lady,

I'm glad to meet you!

It's true that I've only been here at WA for a short time and it has been an absolute nightmare here...just kidding!

WA has been a truly wonderful place where the community helps each other out and we all want to achieve online success.

The training is so good and building a website couldn't be any easier really. I just keep plugging away every day at something that has to do with either my online business or helping out at Wealthy Affiliate. And then next thing you know I'm in the top 100. I guess you could say I've made good use of my time here lol :)

The things you will need to do here at WA are:

- Learn it...then do it

- Learn it again...then do it again

- Learn it some more...and then...you guessed it...do it some more

And then repeat, repeat, repeat...

I try to blog here at WA every day so I can get used to writing content for "people" because I always have the tendency to write like a textbook. Those blogs help me make connections, make new friends, get help, laugh a lot, give back to the community and improve my rank. So there you have it...all my secrets ha ha :)

You will do well in the yoga/fitness area for your niche and now that your kids are grown you won't have them underfoot while you learn. So go for it and make your online dreams come true.

If you ever need help just ask or pm or send smoke signals...there is always help around here somewhere :)

Welcome once again and cheers,
Lori

Hi thank you for your help you have provided.

I followed your steps to add the featured image, after saving the new code my website is now completely offline and I cant log into the dash board or cant find it through the url.

what should I do ?

thanks

~Jack
Reply
Thischick Premium
Hi Jaxon,

I'm not sure what to tell you. The only code I provided you with was css styling. It should have changed the way your website displays the images but not actually take your site offline. Where did you add the code? It should have been the style.css file only and it should have been just the code in the bottom image. If anything you can submit a support ticket and they can put the default theme on your website while you get it sorted.

Perhaps you added the css code to the wrong file? It was strictly for the style.css file and not for the php files in your theme. Once your site is back up and running you should start with a fresh copy of the Sydney theme if the old one has been corrupted.

We are getting through the hard stuff little by little and day by day. No one can stop me now ha ha...

From what I have read of your blog articles, you have a definite affinity for the technical side of things in internet marketing. this is such an advantage for you!
If you were to build a membership website for the purpose of being a source of paid information about how to conquer WP, for instance, and write the same articles for your site as you write for us here at WA, I think you would attract people would gladly be part of your paid membership.
You know as well as I do that people need help with internet and website problems pretty often. Your down-to-earth style is very easy to understand, is very encouraging, and is easy, easy to relate to. I am sure you would do very well with a website like this!
Why not make the articles you write for us do double duty and earn you some well-deserved money and independence?
Regards,
Persia

Hi Persia,

Thank you for your suggestions! I've been making my blogs here at WA to test out what it would be like to make training and instructional type posts for a possible future website. It's been going well so I'm thinking to do something in the area of helping others with Wordpress so we will see. Everything I have learned has been self-taught and I'm not sure if others would want to pay for that but who knows? Definitely something to think about for the future.

How are things going with your online business? If you need anything just ask. I am always around somewhere ready to help :)

Cheers,
Lori

I blogged the other day about the Hootsuite app and funnily enough your picture showed up in my screenshot of "New Twitter Users" you are famous lady :) Here's the link to my blog if you want to see the screenshot: And the other day I was watching a Youtube video and there was this advertisement just before the video started. It was this guy painting his entire house with this dollhouse miniature paintbrush. It said something about "decorating small spaces" and I thought of you right away :)

Hi there Lori. Many thanks for the following. I had a chance to read your profile and blogs and can only say "What a very talented woman you are". Firstly you joined WA after me and are already streets ahead. Secondly your writing talents are incredible. I know you are only writing it "as it is" but very many people cannot do that. Make sure you continue to use that in your site blogs. That will get people back. This community, I have found, is something I had never imagined. After many attempts to secure an online income via schemes, systems and scams I managed to lose more money than I would ever admit to. At WA I feel so confident, not so much in myself, about all this because of the contact that is available. I wish you all the success that you deserve and hope that this brings a new life to you and you family (including the furry one). Keep it up and you will find what you want. Good luck and God bless you. Best regards Ken.

Hi Ken,

I am so flattered by your kind words. I keep reading them over and over to let them sink in. It means a lot to me that you took the time to have a look at my work. And it means even more to me that you actually like it too lol!

Just like you, I was taken advantage of in the past with online marketing and was embarrassed enough to put it away for about the last 6 years. But after finding WA it is changing how I feel about online marketing and the people online in general. There are some very kind and helpful people here who mean it when they said we can do this thing called "making money online".

I am on rooting for you to make it this time Ken and if you ever need help with anything just ask.

Have a great week,
Lori

Lori...Welcome to WA!! Like others who have posted before me, I am sorry to hear about your struggles and the pain that you have had to endure. However, it appears that all of your trials have made you a much stronger woman and that will serve you well in the days ahead.

There is also no question about the love you have for your son and that is a true blessing and will also serve as a strong motivator as you build your internet business.

Read through your website and found it to be very helpful. As Dave wrote, you DO have great writing skills and that will prove to be VERY helpful to you.

A question for you...you have a section for "Supplies." Have you given any thought to becoming an affiliate for a company selling baby supplies? That would be a great place to place links for products you trust...and make some money in the process!

Regardless, best wishes for MUCH success in whatever you undertake. Don't forget to post pictures of Mehkai as he continues to grow. He's one cute little guy...has that "twinkle" in his eye that's gonna cause "problems" for Mom!! LOL!!

Hi Vince,

What can I say? Your comments have really touched my heart. My life has taken some different turns this last year but I wouldn't trade it for anything. While my son's father decided being a parent to a high needs baby was no longer for him, I have watched my son flourish. He grows stronger every day and the eczema and allergies get easier and easier to manage as time goes on.

Things may be different come winter and I may be pulling my hair out by the handfuls, but right now we are managing. There was a time when my son couldn't have his hands free for any length of time because his eczema was so bad. He was swaddled 24 hours a day. Then when he was able to use his hands it was while wearing doubled pairs of knee socks so he couldn't cause more damage to himself. He still scratches a lot but he no longer wears any protection on his hands and he's able to understand when I want him to stop scratching for the most part. He's only just coming up on 10 months old and he's standing up on his own all the time now. So even though there were some dark days and nights along the way, there has been plenty of wonderful too.

My website is still very much a work in progress as I am a newbie ha ha. I have reached the training lesson that asks us to put images up on our blog. I have now done so and it looks like less of a ghost town over there.

My plan is to find good quality products to sell on my supplies page but not just yet. Once the training tells me I can add affiliate links I will start with Amazon and branch out with cloth diaper companies that have affiliate programs online. There are tons of products that can be purchased from affiliate stores within the cloth diaper niche and I plan on taking full advantage of that.

Thank you for your heartfelt words Vince and have a wonderful week.

Cheers,
Thischick

Hello Lori,

What soap do you use for your baby? Most OTC products from supermarket are of chemical some of them may trigger Eczema. Make sure you use natural products.

If your boy is still on formula, offer him with soy base formula. This can improve the situation. I remember when my daughter was a baby she had minor problem on this, we also offer soy based formula. We also started to feed her with solid feed when she's 8 months already, mostly fresh fish. But make sure you debone them thoroughly.

Hope this help.

Alex

Thischick Premium
Hi Alex,

I know what you mean about using natural products. I had to stop using laundry soap to wash his clothes and I started making my own soap made from two basic ingredients: coconut oil and lye. I wash his clothes with a little of it and I use a little to bathe him. I also don't bathe him too much either. I know that sounds gross but if I bathed him all the time we would be at the hospital with infections all the time too.

One time my sons infection from the eczema was so bad he was hospitalized and put on antibiotics and steroids because his skin was a raw mess that formed blisters with puss in them. They also gave me milk based formula to feed him while in the hospital and he became so sick with vomiting and difficulty breathing and his lymph nodes in his neck and back of his head swelled to the size of golf balls. The doctor said he had milk allergy so no milk based formula and no more breastfeeding. He has been on soy formula ever since. He still has lots of eczema flares and he scratches all the time but it hasn't gotten as bad as the time he was in the hospital since we switched to soy.

Thank you for your concern Alex. I am always to try anything that might work to help my son. I just wish his eczema would go away already. It's a terrible way for a child to have to grow up.
Reply
chengckalex Premium
Don't worry. I believe the eczema problem will be gone by itself as your son grow up. Me and my younger brother had similar problem during our toddler age but we the problem gone even before we enter teenage.

Not sure from whom was it inherited, my daughter (now 25) was infected with incontinentia pigmenti at the time when she was born. It is a kind of genetic condition that more likely happens to oriental. There was serious problem of rash develop around her upper body. The rash was so serious that there was slight bleeding from them. But the trial prescription that the dermatologist prescribed was just hydrogen peroxide solutions. She asked us to warm the solution up to body temperature and apply to the rash. The rash eventually gone in just two days.

Sorry I'm not trying to speak like a doctor (I'm not) but just wanna share with you. Your son is in good hand and everything is ok.

Thischick Premium
Thanks Alex,

Thank you for sharing your experience with me. I will try your advice. I am hoping my son grows out of it before he goes to school. People can be so rude when they don't know what your child's skin condition is and how painful it is for them.

Cheers,
Lori

Hi Lori. Welcome to WA. Wishing you all the luck after what you have been through, Eczema is a curse, it runs in my family and my two had very bad also, but thankfully it's under control at the moment. Have you ever hear of 50:50, it's great for delicate skin and really helps my boys. The advice I would give to you here at WA is follow the training and if at times it gets too much, take a break for a day or two. You will do great. It's hard to mange time with young children so just go at a steady pace. Good luck. Olive
Reply
Thischick Premium
Hi Olive, I live in Canada and haven't heard of 50:50. I will have to Google it. Right now I make a mix of Vaseline, eucerin anti-itch for eczema, and a dollop of diaper barrier cream. Nothing cures it but the mix helps sometimes. I also use "Baby Boo Bamboo" massage oil after bathing and it does an okay job between eczema flares. My son has scars all over from his flares. Did your sons end up with scars? Did they fade over time? Thanks for your kind words and good advice Olive.
Reply
olivingstone Premium
50:50 is not available here in Ireland but my chemist makes it up for me. The main ingredients are white soft paraffin and liquid paraffin, it forms an oily layer on the skin and help the skin retain more moisture. When they were very bad, I put the 50:50 on and then the steroid on top as the 50:50 prepares the skin for the steroid and it works much better. I know a lot of people don't like to use steroids but when they were very bad I had to. They have no scars and neither to I. I suffered so bad from it, that sometimes it was hard to walk or straighten my arms. The key is to keep it moisturized all the time. They say to bath the child everyday but I don't agree with this as an eczema sufferer. It only dries up the skin. 3 times is enough in my book. Unless of course if the skin is infected. Hopefully it will just go away one day so I do know what you are going through so PM if you ever need a chat. Olive

There's a plugin called TinyMCE that will add spellcheck to your blog editor. I've never used it so not sure how good or bad it is or if it's easy to use. You could give that a try. Otherwise the website wordcount has a spellcheck there and has the bonus of counting your words too. I am now following you. Good luck and success to you.

Thank you for following me. Your story and mine are so similar! I had a baby 8 months ago who was born premature and had some health complications. Her father also left us (although he was abusive and we are much better off now!) I too was looking for a way to supplement some income when I found WA. I will truly be rooting for your success. I understand exactly how hard it can be trying to do it all on your own! I believe you can totally do this! Just keep showing up every day and you cannot fail. Let me know if you need anything!!

Hi there - Just wanted to say a proper hello to you as I read your bio and felt your distress over your baby's condition. My son, who is now 5, went through just a few months of ezcema issues when he was between 6 months to a year old. He was lucky to outgrow it but those few months were torture. I remember all the scratching and the bloody sheets in the morning he also had an allergy to milk protein and eggs. Every doctor had a different theory and I was tearing my hair out. If you ever need to talk about it, I am here for you :) Have you thought of using your experience to build a site? I know when I was going through it with Alex it was so hard to find good reliable information - anyway, just a thought :)
Reply
Thischick Premium
Hi Trish! It's like we are leading parallel lives here. My son's middle name is Alex and that's all anybody ever calls him so that makes it even more of a parallel lol. My son went through his worst eczema starting at two weeks old. It was so hard having a newborn and then dealing with eczema and food allergies was a deal breaker for my partner. It's okay though, it showed me his true colors. And when you talk about tearing your hair out I can relate. Those were some dark days. Now that it's summer or he's older or the planets have aligned properly things have eased up. I was able to finally take the gloves off my son and let him use his hands without worrying he would scratch himself into an infection. I am worried that when the cold weather starts creeping back in that the eczema flares will become out of control as well but we will cross that bridge when we get to it. I don't know about you but the hardest part of eczema is knowing that you have a wonderful little baby with a wonderful little personality that is trapped inside that crying, scratching, miserable little body. I've thought about making this my niche but perhaps it's all a little too raw and too close to home at this time. I get teary just thinking about all that we went through together. Thanks for the warm welcome Trish and sharing your story with me. It touched my heart. If I can ever help you with anything just give me a shout.

Hi, glad to meet me, lol.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we have found a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

You made a good choice coming to WA. I started making money online in 2004. WA wasn't around back then. I had to learn from scratch. What took me 2 years to accomplish online, you will be able to do in a couple of months if you are new to affiliate marketing.

The wealth of knowledge here in the tutorials and the help from fellow WA members is exceptional. I have never met a bunch of like-minded people who are so eager to help.

When I came to WA in February, I was skeptical. Seen enough online scams in my time. I searched high and low for "the catch." There was none. I learned WA is legitimate. There is no pressure to upsell me more products or services. That was refreshing.

Anyway Lori, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing. Please feel free to send me a private message if there is anything I can do for you. You may also want to check out my WA profile blog posts as there is some interesting and informative information there. Here’s a little inspiration:
