About TimBartrum
Joined August 2014
Hey, I'm 16 years old and like the idea of being self employed and working from home because it sounds amazing so hopefully wealthy affiliate will help make this true in the future.
So far, I've had 3 attempts at making a successful website and I'm on my third attempt now, hopefully this will be more successful. I didn't think through the other websites enough and they had problems with them but this third one should hopefully be good.
It's basically aimed at programmers and people who use their computer a lot and it gives tips and tricks to do with your computer and how to keep it running well. It will also advertise great products which can help improve your PC experience like fast processors, mechanical keyboards, etc.

Hi Tim. Sounds like a great niche! In fact I just got done pressure cleaning my notebook for the sticking I and H keys. Now to run Error Expert to help the fact that my typing jumps all over the place!

Part of the problem is I am of the generation when the head of IBM said it was ridiculous to think the day would come when people all had computers in their home! Not visionary.

Anyway, loving it here. Best of luck and when you get your site up, let me know. I could probably spend a whole day there!

Great Success to you

Great time to get started on a business like this, Tim. Sure wish I had recognized this business sooner, too. Just think, you may never have to hold a "job" like I did for so many years (and probably your parents did too). Good for you! Build it now.

I was a programmer once ... but that was long ago. I enjoyed my 20+ years developing operating systems for major vendors, most of whom no longer exist.
Reply
TimBartrum Premium
Thanks, sounds cool developing operating systems, did you develop in the C programming language?
Reply
AllynBeekman Premium
No. My time preceded the C language. The companies I worked for first used machine language, down to moving bits and bytes. The later ones had developed their own version of a language which had similarities to C. For example, I worked for Tandem Computers (bought out by Compaq in 1996) and they had a language called TAL (Tandem Application Language) which was C-like.
Reply
TimBartrum Premium
Wow, that's interesting. I don't think I would like dealing with things right down to byte code and machine language. Just shows programming languages have come in very handy now to make things like that easier :D
Reply
AllynBeekman Premium
Yes, it was very different. Having been a math major, logic and detail were what companies were looking for at that time (there was no such thing as an IT or programming degree). As a result, I loved the intricate detail of doing that type of programming.

Hey tim, followed you back. I noticed you put your website in your bio. You can easily add that to the website list of your profile. Great site! Surprised the http://learnbasicjava.com domain was availible.
Reply
TimBartrum Premium
Yeah I know right! I was really surprised as well. My new site is http://thepcprogrammer.com/ and I've taken down the http://learnbasicjava.com website due to it not getting very good rankings and I think the niche was very high competition so my new website is going to be about upgrading your pc experience with tips and tricks and stuff like that.. hopefully this one will be more successful :)

Cool. With the pc programmer domain you are also not forced to to writing about one programming language.

Hi Tim, I'm the one who left your comment on your site. I admire you for being such a young programmer, I didn't even own a computer when I was your age. There are some things to consider about staying here. You are only 15. Most and I mean, all of the affiliate programs I have found require you to be at least 18 years old. This means you will have a difficult time making money from your site. If your here for fun and learning, you should stay. But if you want to make money on with google adsense you should read there page about requirements for joining. https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/9724 ?hl=en&ref_topic=1319756&rd=1
Good luck to you Tim, and I'm following you.
Reply
Jmac27 Premium
The link will not work if you try to click it. You will have to copy paste and remove the space between 9724 and ? or just search google for "Google adsense age requirements." If your parents approve of what your doing, they can sign up for google adsense for you.
Reply
TimBartrum Premium
Thanks for the information and the follow! It's annoying that you have to be at least 18 :( I guess I'm mainly here for the learning experience.. If I do decide I want to earn a bit of money I may ask my parents to sign up if they don't mind lol :D

Hey guys I just went premium!! It took some persuasion from my dad (I have to get permission for these things) as he was very reluctant but eventually I got him to do it! I'm happy I've upgraded but I'm only allowed to do it for the first month and then I have to cancel the subscription :((( I don't think I could afford to pay £28 every month anyway because I only get £12 a month :( Oh well I'll just have to make the most of it :D
Reply
PMakaris Premium
Hey Tim, that's totally fine! Congratulations on becoming premium. We're so happy to have you here. If you have any questions or need any help whatsoever don't hesitate in sending me a message through Wealthy Affiliate.

To get started with Wealthy Affiliate training you can simply get started by clicking the big green button up on the left.. If you're more interested in going the affiliate bootcamp route, that's fine too. The layout of the courses are shown for each classroom.

Anyway I hope you make the best of your first month here. Make sure to thank your dad for allowing you to become a member here and please give him my gratitude for allowing you to make this wonderful decision. After all, it relates greatly to you own passion and interests, and will prepare you in many things related to the technological aspects regarding website creation and the like.

Once again, welcome on-board Tim!

I made a website before I went to wealthy affiliate so it's not hosted here unfortunately but I hosted it with godaddy which seems to be quite good anyway so it doesn't really matter (I don't think..) I have made it on wordpress as well and bought a domain :D
Reply
PMakaris Premium
Okay no problem. Many members seem to run in that same similar situation. If you'd like however, go ahead and check out the websites & hosting area under tools. There you will find the benefits of hosting your website with Wealthy Affiliate, as their shared hosting server may be more beneficial to the speed and loading of your website.

Ultimately, it all comes down to whatever you think is best for you!! Also I'm not sure if you're in some sort of 1 or 2 year contract with your hosting company, but as a premium member here at Wealthy Affiliate you can host an unlimited number of websites as you like free with your premium membership.

Anyway if you do want to switch your hosting, let me know and I can show you how very simple it is to do. Otherwise awesome work Tim. You're way ahead of the game for your age! I like your enthusiasm and work ethic. I think you'll fit right in here within the community.

If you'd like, send me over your website by private message so I can take a look. If it's more of a privacy thing for you however, then no worries my friend.

Hey guys I just wanted to tell you what I've been doing.. I couldn't help but realize my rank was getting higher and higher :\ The reason I haven't been very active is because I'm making my website a slightly different way... I wanted to add more coding into building it so I'm using things like JQuery and Javascript. This has led me to slightly drift away from the tutorials :( but I am trying to stick to them as best I can..
Reply
PMakaris Premium
Hey Tim,

That's totally fine!

You can be a free member for as long as you like my friend.

By the way I love the dedication and commitment you're putting in at your age. This is going to bring you a very long way in your future in terms of success!

Anyway don't worry about it so much. Just remember you can come back at anytime you want, just make sure to stick with one account only.

I hope to hear more of what you're working on. In addition, how would you like to let me know of your website's progress? If you're interested, we can work together on making it a great success, in terms of producing online income (if you're interested).

Either way, please do stay in touch with me. It doesn't have to cost you anything. I promise ;)

Thanks,

Hey Tim,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(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. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Tim and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Tim!

Hey Kyle,

Really appreciate you taking the time to personally introduce yourself to Tim. It's a bit odd to have seen him leave already.. oh well!

Maybe he'll come around again though. In that case I'll be excited to helping him turn into an online success..

By the way Tim, did you know that Kyle was actually a computer programmer graduate? He actually built this training platform I think about 9 or so years ago.

Well we hope to see you come around again soon, as we have some really awesome things to teach you :)

Leave me a note/comment on my wall whenever you're ready to get started.

I can't agree more! If you can only imagine all the time and trouble saved.

Even by simply creating a website at that age, would have made for one amazing and highly profiting investment. I wouldn't have even made it to college.. and if I did it would have only been for alot of fun..

Better than never I suppose :)

Hi Tim!

Just checking in.

Did you get a chance to start your own free wordpress blog yet?!

I recommend it, as you start to blog even just once a week or so now on a passion or interest you have, even video games, or programming, can be highly beneficial to you, and will payoff in the long-run..

Esp. if you plan on going to college, this could become a great way for you to earn some amazing extra income ;)

In addition, if you decide to upgrade, you'll have access to myself along with some of the most professional online marketers (like kyle and carson who've introduced themselves below). This can be a once in a lifetime chance that can help enhance your knowledge in computer programming.

Anyways I look forward to any questions or concerns you may have.

If you're hesitant in signing up because of school or education, just give me a shout on my profile, and I will gladly point you in the right direction.

I am more than willing and happy in helping you develop an easy to use marketing plan that will help you for ages and ages to come :)

Sincerely,
Peter

Included here is a brief tutorial to help you maximize your community reach within WA https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image

More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Online Business community. In the coming days you are going to learn about how the Internet can be leveraged to earn a substantial amount of money online. BUT, before this can happen you need to understand that in order to achieve success at anything, it will take a bit of work and you will hit a few bumps in the road along the way.

That is why I am here and that is why there is a big community here that is behind you (and rooting for you) every step of the way. If you ever need anything Tim, I am here to help so just let me know.

You can get started right away by working on the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course found here:
