About TMagnusson
Joined August 2017
I could say William Cowper was thinking of me when he wrote in his poem
“The Task” (1785): “Variety is the very spice of life, That gives it all its flavor.” Obviously, he wasn’t but we share the same outlook on life. I strive to learn or do something new every day, whether it’s a new word on MW word of the day, trying a new food/recipe or living in a different culture.
Nine years ago, my husband and I divested ourselves of all our worldly possessions and moved our family, first to Panama and then to Mexico. We have always wanted to see the world, so now that we are empty nesters, we are embarking on a new nomadic lifestyle. Seeking something different, more personal than a scripted tour, view out of a hotel window or a resort holiday, we want to be world citizens rather than world travelers and experience real life in as many countries as we can.
In preparing for our adventure two things became glaringly obvious. Most of the travel books, blogs, reviews, advice and equipment are geared to young travelers. It is very difficult to find tech travel apparel stylish enough to live in and even more difficult to find a review written by someone over 50. Secondly, after sharing our plans with people we meet, they always ask us how we “know what to do”. Then they ask, ae you going to be writing about your adventure and/or tell me what to do so I can do the same thing.
Which leads me to WA and why I joined. My goal is to figure out if I can make some money while sharing what I have learned along the way as well as sharing our journey and hopefully inspiring other 50’s & 60’s to live outside the box.
Live life with no regrets.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Gary:

I have completed the first two tasks in Lesson 3 and I'm now at the choose my niche stage. I Googled affiliate programs for "nomads over 50", travel clothing, travel gear and travel. I came across quite a few companies I am familiar with and have bought products from specifically for the next 18 months we will be traveling in the UK, Europe and UAE. I think I will have plenty of products to review along with stories about the things we see and do. So, is nomads over fifty a specific enough niche or is it still too broad?

I also have a question about key word search. Is my niche the key words I use or are they totally unrelated?

I'm trying not to stress over finding my "perfect" niche but I tend to be a perfectionist so I would appreciate some guidance.

Thanks for your input.

Hi, Tamara!

Please don't stress. I understand if you do, but this is really a very simple business. You have a wonderful personality that comes through in your writing, and you literally have a world of valuable information and experience to share with your reader. What you are learning here is how to reach the people around the globe who you can help.

I think Nomads Over Fifty is a perfect niche for you.

I think you might be struggling because it feels too easy and you can't believe you actually discovered a way to make money with your passion. That's okay.

About keywords and niches. A niche is a group of people, like single mothers, trout fishermen, rock climbers, belly dancers or Nomads Over Fifty. A keyword is the word or phrase someone types into the search engine to find something, like "antique door knobs", "baby clothes" or "how to poop in a Mediterranean toilet."

The keywords are important when you write an article for your website. Using the right keyword will help people find your article. As a writer, think of a keyword or keyword phrase as the focal point of your article.

I'm here for you,
Gary
