About Wayne66
Joined November 2015
Hi, everyone. Well, where should I start? My name is Wayne, I'm 68 and sort of retired. I started looking into making money online about 3 years ago after a serious back injury. I Checked out all kinds of stuff but was very skeptical. I eventually settled on doing some survey sites and quickly found out that making enough money doing that was going to be very difficult.

Around that time I also came across WA and found it very appealing. I didn't do anything about it then, (I foolishly thought doing surveys was the answer. NOT!), and now, a year later, I am diving in as a complete newbie.

My Wife and I live on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada. We like to camp in our trailer and manage to get away a couple of times a year to a resort south of the border in Washington State, USA. It's a place where we can just sit and relax if we want or go shopping or explore our surroundings if we want.

One of my favorite things to do is sing on a worship team in our church and sometimes I act in local productions put on by a theater group in our area. I like to whittle/carve walking sticks, draw, and if I get the chance I occasionally hike. My Wife and I also like to walk the dogs which we try to do every day.

I like to read good sci-fi and I am quite interested in books about apologetics, (defense of the Christian world view). I also like to fly my stunt kite. It has two strings attached to it and it is a lot of fun.

I'm really hoping to make a go of it here. I would like to be able to earn enough to get to the point where my wife can retire and we can start doing some of the things we enjoy but on a larger scale, such as traveling in our trailer and discovering some of the beautiful places this continent has to offer. I know it can be done and I know it will take work and most of all commitment and perseverance, the latter of which I have had a problem with in the past.

For those of you who BELIEVE and pray, PLEASE pray for me, I need all the help I can get.

In the mean time---keep on. We are all in this together.

Hi Wayne,
WA is a great place to land! The training is super, don't get discouraged if you go slow. I heard a saying today that says: "It doesn't matter how slow you go, as long as you don't stop". I can say that because I am also semi-retired and going slow but I want to understand what I am doing.

Best wishes,
Michael

Hi Wayne, I read your reply about getting stuck. I do the same thing. I will procrastinate, then I feel guilty because I am not working on my website.
Then doubt starts to set in. I hate this about myself. I have met the enemy and he stares at me every day in the mirror. By realizing this about ourselves, maybe we can change it.
Once I get started writing the post, I am fine. I love to write and do the research. Wayne we have got to get this stumbling block out of our way.
I was reading your bio. You are interested in books about apologetics. Me too. I eat that stuff up. Who are some of the teachers you read or listen to?
I think it is very important to study apologetics. We as believers need to know what we know. Not so we can win arguments, but to help people have a better understanding of God's word.
We make life so difficult most of the time and life can get tough. But we have one true purpose in life. It is to know and love God with all heart, mind, soul, and strength and to help others to know and love him as well. That is it in a nutshell.
If we could just do that, we can change the world. But we must first change ourselves.
I use to pray for God to change my circumstances, but now I pray God changes me. If God transforms me into the man He wants me to be, then I can handle whatever life throws my way.
Wayne, I am really looking forward to getting to know you better.
God bless you brother, johnny

Hi Wayne, Thanks for following me and after your great words on my bio I decided to take a look at your bio and wow, you certainly get yourself around and keep busy.

Keep writing like that on your websites and you'll be an expert in the www space easily....

People out in internet land love to read content and you can deliver some great articles to them with words like what you have above.

Hi, John and thanks for dropping by. I appreciate your comment and I only hope the rest of my content can stand the test.

I'm not an expert by any means so I rely on research for my articles and do my utmost to put my content into my own words. So far there doesn't seem to be any issues, at least by "Site Content" standards.

The other things I try to do is speak from my heart and like I'm speaking to a friend or my wife.

I think all these are important and as long as we can stick to that and be consistent in producing content at least once a week, (twice or more would be preferable), we should eventually become successful.

The last article on my website, I think, Might be the best yet, (not to brag). I just felt extra good about it when it was done. Might still tweak it a little but, I like the way it turned out.

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for dropping by and all the best to you as well as you work towards your goals.

Hello Wayne ... thank you for the follow. I love the BC area. One of our best vacations was up to BC with a side trip up to Whistler.

The trail that brought me to WA is quite similar to yours Wayne. I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Wayne66 Premium
Thanks for dropping by, Dennis. Glad you liked your visit to Beautiful B.C.

Whistler is a very beautiful part of our province. I used to ski there a lot in my younger days when the Blackcomb area first opened up. There wasn't much traffic on that mountain back then but boy, have things changed since then. Haven't been in that neck of the woods for many years.

I hope it's going well,

Wayne

Thanks for dropping by, Mo and checking me out. I, too pray for success.

As far as my laptop goes, yes, it does go with me when we travel with our trailer. That is one of the amazing things about doing this online stuff...you can take it anywhere and hook up to WA where ever wifi is available.

One or two hours a day when I'm away is great and we still get to enjoy our time away.

Again, thanks for dropping by and I pray for your success as well,

Wayne

Hi Wayne, thank you for the follow back! It's great to meet you here at WA.

It's funny somehow we started in the same sort of way...I'd first tried medical transcription, but after trying it for a few years, that wasn't going anywhere except to frustrations.

Next, I began looking at survey sites, which led me to a review one of the WA members here had of a survey site which did actually seem to work...but, you know how the survey things are...too much time for little pay, which this member had already pointed out, so I figured I'd see what else he had to say and here I am. Wish I had listened to his main suggestion, WA, first, lol!

I see you and your wife are also "dog people" as are my hubby and I. Cute dogs in the photo, btw! We love taking ours camping too when we can. That sounds like a great time to go and see the countryside...I'm sure it can be done!

I'll definitely keep you and your family in my prayers. Keep in touch when you get the chance...

Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Thanks for dropping by and checking me out, Sherry. Checked out a little of your website and looks like you have some god beginnings. Just keep going and don't give up.

I'm a little artsy myself but haven't really pursued that side of me. I also like to design snowflakes from time to time. Should spend a bit more time pursuing and developing these things. I do enjoy them when I do them.

I look forward to connecting as well and thanks for your prayers.

God bless you and your family.....Wayne

Thanks for the follow Wayne. I am sure it is a little cooler in Vancouver. Here in Central Texas we are averaging 70's during the day and 40's--50's at night. Subject to change very quickly. Have been getting a little rain lately but not to much. Have been here a while and taking it very slow. Am on Lesson 10 Course 2 of the Affiliate Bootcamp. Had to take a little time off and now starting up again. I am a VietNam Veteran, and also Retired. I wanted to find a way to supplement my income and I believe Wealthy Affiliate is the place to be. Best Wishes to you and yours, Enjoy your Retirement and have fun with your lessons..............Frank

Not fully retired yet but I'm working on it. That is what I'm hoping to get out of this, for both me and my amazing wife. I'll give the next year and we will see what happens.

If you like reading books, you MIGHT be interested in The Complete Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch. By the time you get about half way through what he calls the third book (this version it's all in one) you will see Gene Roddenberry's world ... well ... nearly. This book "blew" me away!

Hi, Teresa and thanks for visiting my profile page. Also, thanks for the encouragement.

Well, I guess you could say that I have been a little slower than some, which is true, but, I have been plugin away and about 9 weeks ago I felt that I had my site to a point where I felt it was time to start monetizing. I signed up for two affiliate programs and had just started applying links when I had a minor heart attack and ended up in the hospital and ten days later, quadruple bypass surgery.

Anyway, long story short, I am slowly getting back into the saddle and putting the links in the right place and then will be creating new content. In the long run, I hope the medical setback hasn't hurt my standing with google too much.

All the best to you and look forward to hearing from you soon...Wayne.

I am from: up and down the east coast of the largest island off the west coast of the 2nd largest country in the world.

And then, I met, fell in love with and married a Texan. And guess where I am living now. I find beauty in nature, where ever I am. And I will admit, I do appreciate being out of the rain.

My husband has researched Intelligent Design and appreciates their insight.

My prayers are with you. Many Blessings.

Wayne66 Premium
Thanks for your comment, Myra. Sounds like Vancouver Island.

If your husband is interested in "Intelligent Design", perhaps he would like to check out a fella by the name of J. Warner Wallace. He has a website called coldcasechristianity.com. He was/is a cold case investigator from Los Angeles, who has put his skills to work investigating the historicity and evidence for the Bible and Creation. He is very thorough and, with his background, has a unique perspective on this issue. He has also written a couple of books you and your husband might be interested in.

Thank you for your prayers and blessings to you as well.
