About Thucydides
Joined November 2018
I am just a simple kid who grew up in the woods of Alaska. I grew up hunting and fishing, camping and hiking. I read the encyclopedia for fun...or boredom. I became a United States Marine. Served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, in Al Anbar, Fallujah in 2006-2007. When I came home, with the encouragement and support of my lovely wife, I began my collegiate career, eventually graduating Cum Laude with degrees in History and Political Science.

Hello Aaron, I believe you're Jessica's hubby and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined and from what Jessica has told you, you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing could be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 500 blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.
Robert

I'm very blessed to be Jessica's husband, and thank you for the welcome!

I'm used to a steep learning curve, and I love a good challenge. I will keep the training in mind, as well. If I do get mired down, I'll certainly take the time to get in touch, and read your blogs!

Thanks for the follow back.

Best,

Aaron

Welcome and thank you for your service. We share similar interests. I grew up hunting, fishing, and camping in the PNW, but moving to Arizona has put some of that on hold.

Jessica has always been so willing to help me out, so I know you are in excellent hands if you need help.

I wish you the best.

Thanks Steve. The memories I have of hunting, fishing, and camping in Montana, Idaho, and Alaska are among my dearest and fondest memories.

Yeah, she's pretty amazing, my Jessica. I'm not entirely sure what she was thinking, choosing me. However, I've declared it temporary insanity, and since it's most definitely in my favor...I'll take it.

I guess that's part of one of my goals with my new project - try and instill some of those simple and beautiful parts of nature, and all the benefits it has into a new way of building homes. I detest the "row house" and "cutouts" that lack the ability to see sunlight, fresh air, and greenery!

Thanks again for the welcome. I appreciate it.

Welcome to WA PREMIUM
You've made a life-changing decision. If you stick with it, over time your greatest dreams will come true. Can you imagine what it was like when the first owners of telephones placed them?

They were cash machines. You purchased a cash machine when you chose to go premium. You have proven to be a true entrepreneur and a goal setting winner. Please don't forget to FOLLOW BACK AND LIKE OFTEN.

In fact, thank you in advance for the follow back and the like! Your ranking will improve when you comment and like just like in the real world when people follow and like your site will move higher in the search engine. So, again, thank you in advance for the following. Follow the training. Enjoy and take it

Welcome to WA and Premium!

Congratulations on your wise choice of joining WA. You will quickly see there is a considerable amount of focused training available here.

I always urge new members to follow the training step-by-step and you will learn how to get an excellent website up and running, and then learn how to monetize the website for whatever interest you may have.

One nice part about WA is you are helping people by putting valuable information online for people expressing interest in that information.

There is also a wonderful community of people who are interested in helping you. We are not competing with each other so everybody is anxious to see you succeed.

If you have any questions - please ask - somebody will be able to answer any problem you might encounter.

Hello and welcome to WA Premium!! You will not regret your decision to go Premium!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible, and you won’t find anything like it, anywhere else!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it. Take my word for it, it’s not worth it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome! Be amazing!! And be successful!!!

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask..
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
cheers

Hi Thucydides! I wanted to take a moment to congratulate you on your decision to upgrade to premium membership. I did the same about 5 weeks ago and I have no regrets. I came to WA as a complete "newbie" not knowing anything about the development of a web site and certainly nothing about affiliate marketing. Since that time, I have been able to develop a website, have the site ranked by Google and am now having traffic to the site. You will find that the support you will receive here is outstanding! If you ever get stuck on an issue or something you don't understand, all you have to do is reach out. There are many other affiliates more than willing to assist you. I feel if I can do this at the age of 64, you can do this too! I wish you much success!
