Wow! I'm not sure how else to start this post...It's been quite a while since I've been active here at WA, but that doesn't mean that I haven't been continuing to learn from you all and what you have shared with the rest of the us.Wealthy Affiliate is my go-to site whenever I have a question regarding anything website/blog related and I'm so thankful to be a part of this incredible community.In the last few years, I've fallen head over heels with CrossFit and have become fairly active in the fi

Until now I've managed to get away with not having a FaceBook account. Yes… I missed out on keeping in touch with some friends and acquaintances, but I also saved myself a whole lot of wasted time. Now that I'm starting my new business (www.savewithenergy.com), and I realize the value of social media, I've decided to open up an account. I'd love to grow my network and would happy to have some WA friends :) Please 'friend' me at https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009315351756. Oh. My f

There is so much nonsense that goes around today about 'scams', 'pyramid schemes' and whatnot that is simply due to ignorance and misinformation. Thankfully, I, and most of my fellow WA members, are able to see past that hype and understand that going traditional is not always the best option. I recently had the opportunity of starting my own business and I am so thankful for how my experience here at Wealthy Affiliate has helped me build my website. I'm still in the beginning stages, but any a

I just had the funniest experience and absolutely had to share it. I was trying to stream something online and wasn't using the best of sources. Needless to say, countless ads popped up, but then there was one I couldn't get around. I got a message supposedly from Safari Support claiming that a suspicious activity had been detected and that I must contact online support immediately. I figured it was just another popup, so I hit 'ok', but nothing happened. I couldn't close the window and I could

I had a super exciting morning and would love to share it with you!Knowing How to Take Advantage of an Opportunity I am currently looking to buy a second hand car and while I know that ultimately I'm going to end up buying from a dealer, I was looking at my options on Craigslist... I found a car that looked perfect and texted the owner. We had a back and forth conversation (car didn't work out because it doesn't have cruise control and because I do so much long distance driving, I rely on it...

Ahead of the Game It's only December 28th, so I'm sure most of you haven't thought about blogging about your New Year's resolutions yet, but I'm excited about mine and thought I'd share them with you. Initially, I wasn't planning to post them, because while I believe in the power of accountability, there's also something to be said for success in goals that have not been shared. Research studies have shown that people who have had huge goals and did not share them with others ultimately achieved

Yeah, I know, it's crazy! Seriously - what do they care if your little blog with its traffic by mistake hosts an image that you randomly found online and added to your post without getting the licensing? I guess if they can milk you for all its worth, then they will! They don't really care that you're not making a penny off of it. Oh, well. I just finished reading this post on Laura Roeder's site and found it really helpful (in addition to the great info that can be found at WA) and figured I'd

The December Challenge I don't know how many of you out there are like me, but I work so much better when I'm working 'alongside' others and I know that I have an 'accountability buddy'. That said, I've been inspired by Labman's post about the 30 day challenge and I'd really like to ask you all to join me in a 30 day group challenge. Well, for our sake, it'll be a 31 day challenge running from December 1 to December 31. There's no better way to end off the year than with a bang! To join the chal

This is a pretty long post as I update you on where I'm at, but I'd appreciate it if you'd take the few minutes to read and comment below... It's been a pretty busy last few weeks as I started with a new job. While WA's the place that I love and ultimately where I want to continue to learn to bring in a passive income online, in the meantime I need to cover my rent, pay my car, telephone and food bills as well college expenses. Needless to say, after picking up and moving to LA, I needed to fin

Thank you to all those of you who took the time to answer my recent question about adding autoplay to a WA bootcamp site. And an extra dose of appreciation to the people who went back to watch my video and let me know what they thought. (You know who you are ;) Back in the US, I finally got a chance to actually make that video clip and with a decent internet connection (uncertain internet is one of the not-so-great perks that comes with traveling), I've just posted it onto my site. Based on the
