It's Never Too LateWell, it only took about 8 or so years from the release of the Wealthy Affiliate courses, but publishing this WA blog post is the last task I need to complete level 2. I could probably write an entire book about all the reasons it's taken me so long, but they would all boil down to I had other priorities in my life.Other PrioritiesThe last few years I have been focused on my day job and building the skills needed to advanced to higher, better paying positions. Somehow I con

I tried to log into one of my Gmail accounts today that is associated with my youtube channel and Adsense account as well. Also, it has the analytics account for one of my websites going back 10 years I haven't been actively working on my sites, but I have almost 900 subscribers to my channel. Not a lot in the grand scheme of things, but it's not like it's just five subscribers either.I type in my password and Google asks me for my security question since I have a new phone.

This is something that I have really struggled with over the years without much success and I've never been able to find a balance. Obviously the day job pays the bills, but it would be nice for the online marketing job to pay the bills and be able to ditch the day job.However, while I'm still working the day job in order to advance and get paid more, I need to improve my knowledge and skills by studying at home. I may have 2 hours during the day and more time on the weekend, but then I have

It's sad that I'm even writing this right now, but I was just told that I was SPAMMING someone's WA blog by writing a comment on it.To be fair I did write one previous comment on it that the author deleted. When I wrote a second comment inquiring about why my first comment was deleted the author told me that they did not know me and to stop spamming their site(WA blog).If you want to know what SPAM really looks like then take a look at this set of rules that Kyle laid out:https://my.wealthyaffi

If you have ever tried to register a domain with SiteDomains it's easy to get the impression that you can only register .com, .net, or .org TLDs. However, you can register a lot more TLDs and often at a cheaper price than other domain registrars/resellers especially when you take into account the price of Whois privacy services. A Few Disclaimers:As ICANN approves more TLDs this list may get out of dateAs SiteDomains adds/drops support for domains this list may get out of date.There may be re

One of the websites that I run has a .co domain. When I first started it and was searching for a domain, the .com domain I wanted was already taken. At the time I was using GoDaddy to register my domains and they suggested I use a .co domain because it was global and stood for "company".Well, it definitely doesn't stand for country. Technically it's a ccTLD(country code Top Level Domain) that's for Colombia. However, GoDaddy was partially correct because apparently Google views them as gccT

For those of you who aren't familiar with Upwork, Upwork is a website that allows companies and people to post jobs and allows freelancers to bid on those jobs. Upwork used to be called Odesk, but when Odesk merged with E-lance they renamed the emergent company Upwork.Anyways, I just got an email from Upwork saying that they rolled out a new feature in which they are allowing clients to create listings that have a location requirement of being in the U.S.This is good news for U.S. based freela

This is kind of old news, but if you haven't been active on WA or logged into your websites for awhile you might not know about it.Basically, WordPress 4.7.0 and 4.7.1 has a vulnerability that allows unauthenticated people(people who don't have login credentials) to edit your posts. As you can imagine spammers and hackers have taken full advantage of it to deface websites. I have two websites that had posts modified to say they had been "Hacked by imam with love" and one of those two also had
