About Westwaters
Joined January 2016
I am a retired Sport/Health and Fitness Professional. I enjoy any type of physical activity, including gardening and house projects. I have owned 5 White West Highland Terriers over the past 30 years. Since these little dogs are such a big part of my life, I plan on having them assist me with my new undertaking here at WA.
FAST FORWARD...
I have been here for a month now and am overwhelmed with this powerful website. I joined not fully aware of the detailed educational process I would encounter nor the wealth of new friends I would acquire--now my WA Family! I can now add this experience at WA to my list of passions in life...

Thanks for the follow back and the best of luck to you! It is amazing what I am learning here and have only been here since March 31st. There is so much here to learn and it can be daunting, but at least you can always go back and review the videos, when you get stuck or even ask someone here, since it is such a huge community! Right now, my mind is a sponge soaking up as much knowledge, as I can!

Hi Max,
I followed your intsructions on your training site, but\ had no luck trying to convert code to image. Would you be able to take a look at my site--headtotailpetwear.com--just to see if I did it correctly?
The code shows up on the page titled "Our Favorite Pro Teams,,,
If you have time to check it out I would really appreciate it. I f you don't, no worries, I understand.
Thanks

It is a bit hard to analyze, because Wordpress modifies the code between the moment you paste it and when you look at it in the visual mode... One thing I see is that you kept the "here" words. You should highlight these words in the text view and paste over them. Take a print screen of the code when you paste is and send it to me. Maybe few ones to show me different stages.

Kathy, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Kathy.

Hi Kathy,
Very nice to meet you ! I'm pretty sure this will be my last stop of a long look (probably over a year) for the right place to create an honest, stable and of course obscenely large on-line income. I'm still in the build it stage of "build it and they will come". Taking a lot on faith, but I'm convinced it's the right move.
Wasted some money, got scammed, found some things that would probably work but I don't have the checkbook to stay long enough.
So here I am and glad I've made it !
Keep that site coming. I like the theme and bet it works out great !
I've got some neat stuff if you get to health one day, maybe even for pets. I'll get back to you on that. I have some (too many) kitties. One was given a death sentence by vet about a month ago. I've got her on an anti-diarrhea drug and giving her this supplement. I think she's beyond expectations and I'm guardedly optomistic we might get her all the way back. Started a bit later than I wish I would have so we'll see.
Any way great to meet you and good luck ! Don't ever give up!
Regards !
Mike

Hi Mike, Thanks for the correspondence. I checked out your site and found it very intriguing. As you well know, anyone that has their own business certainly hits the "stress" category (retirement is also a life saver). I will continue to follow your site and once I get mine under control (it's starting to stress me out) I would like research it closer. You certainly are very well informed on the subject. Much success...
Warm Regards,
Kathy

Hello Kathy, Welcome! Nice to meet you, I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start I have written trainings for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post and 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under trainings (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Kathy: Thank you so much for your follow. I appreciate it very much and welcome to my network of fabulous WAers. My network is about two things.

1) I encourage every follower to regularly post a blog with WORTHY content to other WAers. Obviously, if you blog once a day your ranking will quickly move up in WA. However, please understand that I only blog approximately once every two weeks and in the back of my mind I am only blogging to my followers in an attempt to provide the best example (of my writing skills) that I can. Why! Your website will only be successful if you post quality pieces to it. Frequently, that requires that you learn to write even better than you do now.

2) I try to HELP my followers every time they run into a snag with their websites to the best of my ability. If that is not good enough, I will refer you to other HELPERS at WA that will definitely be able to help you. So if you run into a problem here at WA, please let me try to assist you.

Please remember that Kyle, Carson, you and me are not WA. WA is thousands of students learning the concepts of e-commerce and the hundreds of WAers that learn to blog regularly for the delight of the community as they attempt to hone their various writing skills.

If I am not already, I will look forward to FOLLOWING you also. Welcome to My Network! DAN

Westwaters Premium
Hi Dan, Thanks for taking the time to write to me. I finally forced myself to put up a blog last week which I know was very weak in terms of measurement. I actually wanted to put the quote on a sign of some type. Someone already tried to help me out and told me which icon to use, however, I'm not very computer savvy and couldn't figure it out.so it ended up looking like I wrote the quote!
Might you have any suggestion on how to incorporate signs in your content?? Thanks again for reaching out. Continued success...
Warm Regards,
Kathy
Reply
gooddogpoky2 Premium
Kathy: E-commerce is like any other business or endeavor. You find that it is full of "words" and "initial" that all mean something. As your go through your training, you will learn what these words mean and before you know it you will be more knowledgeable than me.

I do not know what you mean by incorporating "signs in your content."

Do you mean adding pictures (which in WP is called Media)? If so, as you are writing your blog look up in the section near the top where you can change fonts etc. You will see a little picture that looks like a very tiny mountain. That mountain is the "add media or picture" button. By clicking on that it will take you to a WP Media page where you can select a picture to put into your post.

However, there will likely not be any pictures there so hit the BROWES for pictures button and add YOUR PICTURES to the media page which you can then Upload into your blog. Very easy to do. I hope this has helped you. DAN

Hi Dan, Thanks for that bit of info. This makes more sense & I will play around with it and figure it out. (It will be my own little private victory when I do). As you've also noticed, I also need to polish up on my terminology! Appreciate your time and assistance...will be in touch.

Hi Kathy, Welcome! Thank you for following me back! I'm a newbie myself. Just follow the training, it takes you step by step. If you ever get sidetracked (which definitely happens!), just go back to the green button, or Bootcamp, which ever you have decided to start with, and it will get you back on track. There are times that may get a little tough, but hang in there! There is definitely a light at the end of the tunnel! Everyone is wonderful and extremely supportive! The training is awesome! I wish you all the best success in your online business! -Leslie
