Spilling My Guts

Last Update: September 09, 2015

Hey Everyone,

It's me Thischick...ready to spill my guts about how it's been going here at Wealthy Affiliate. What's that you say? You don't like gut-spillers? Well tough cookies for you! Sit down and read it and weep while I chew the fat for a while...

"It all started a long, long, long time ago..."

Just kidding...I started August 16th, 2015 ya silly goose!

Since that time I:

- Was warmly welcomed by the WA community

- Built my first website in under 10 minutes (filling it with content has been the tricky part)

- Became a Premium member because I saw the value in continuing with the help of the community with premium WA features

- Learned how to help others, instant chat and grow my social network here on WA

- Climbed the rankings and am now poised to break into the Top 200 any day! (look out number 199 you are going down ha ha)

- Became a Jaaxy addict and am currently trying to find a keyword addiction support group ;)

- Found out I am way too wrapped up in how my site looks and have changed it like 27 bazillion times (give or take a time or two)

- Have spent far too many 3:00 am's awake thinking about my online business and wondering if anyone is there RIGHT NOW

- Learned that patience truly is a virtue...not too sure I have that virtue because I am far too impatient to get to the next thing

- Enjoyed reading the blog posts of other and leaving comments, feedback and being a good Internet neighbor

- Watched the sun rise at my computer far too many times :)

But the BIGGEST THING that I did over the last 3 weeks is EXACTLY what I came to Wealthy Affiliate for in the first place:

I built my online business :)

Later on in the future when I'm ready:

- I will make money from my online business

- I will grow my internet empire

- I will roll around in the stacks of money I made from the internet :)

- I will continue to be a Wealthy Affiliate member

Why? Because I couldn't have done it without you WA and all of it's wonderful people!

Ta Ta for now beautiful people...you may now return to growing your online business as I am done chewing the fat ha ha...

Take care lovely's,

Lori aka Thischick

Dang, This is a great Blog. And ranking at 86. You are really doing great. I love how you put your feelings into this post as well as explain how wonderful Wealthy Affiliate is. You are gonna go far. You are a wonderful writer. I call some of the things I write sarcastic funny. I think its wonderful how we can write things better when it comes from within ourselves. You sound like a wonderful person.

Thanks Olive. Your words remind me of what my mom said to me when I told her I was never moving out.

She said: "You are funny Lori but seriously it feels like you've been here forever."

WA can be all consuming and I to just love it get withdrawals if I cannot at least check in each day am learning so much and every day is different, enjoyed your post
Reply
Thischick Premium
Thanks Katie...one of the best things about WA is the learning. I get such a rush when I accomplish something here that I didn't know how to do before. I feel like I'm standing at the top of a mountain with the wind whipping through my hair and I can see for miles...best feeling in the world :)

Lori, you made me smile! It's addicting, this WA stuff, isn't it? I can assure you that there are plenty of people here at 3 a.m.! I love your enthusiasm. Great post!
Reply
Thischick Premium
Thanks Cheryl. I also suspect there are lots WA addicts here who just can't put it away even when it's 3:00 am. I always get my best ideas at that time. If I hadn't spent all that time sleeping in the middle of the night in my youth....I would probably be running the world by now ;)

Just started yesterday and it's 4am, woke up at 3, could not sleep wanted to get more done. Love your post
Reply
Thischick Premium
Thanks Bob. I know exactly how you feel. It gets late and so I tell myself to put the internet away for the night and start again in the morning. But then I lay in bed not sleeping thinking about all the things I want to do and fix and change. It's hard to resist the urge to hop back on WA in the middle of the night with toothpicks propping my eyes open :)

We started at a similar time and you're beating me in the rankings.Well done :) I can't work into the early hours my brain just gets fried and it's a waste of time, so I admire that you can do it. :)

Thanks Deb...I am just used to being sleep-deprived because of the baby. I've learned to live with a maximum of 2 hours sleep at a time and 48 cups of coffee a day ha ha :)

Thanks Marty...it was a real shock to see that number this morning but it sure got me going for the day. Now if only my baby would cooperate lol. He took his first unassisted steps today...seriously. The kid just turned 10 months old and he's started walking. The kid needs to tone it down a little...I'm not ready :)

Hi Lori, it seems you have spent quite a number of hours on WA. I am glad you find WA so wonderful and continue to spread the word as there are so many people still out there that doesn't know about WA. I hope you reach all your goals and know that I am rooting for you. Have a blessed day...bye....

Hello Lori! I don't mind when people spill their guts, don't like to watch them toss their cookies though (yuk). Just be careful rolling in all your money, (don't get paper cuts)!
Fun to read Little lady! :)
You have to imagine John Wayne (The Duke) saying that last line, :)
