About WillingToTry
Joined March 2014
Hi everyone, my name is Arthur and I'm very pleased to meet you all!
I decided recently to upgrade my profile and to trim the fat!

I have an extensive background in education and although I'm now officially "retired", I am still very active in a number of projects, perhaps too many! Although my first love is History, and will forever remain so, I also believe that the study of English and the ability to produce good content for the Internet is particularly important nowadays.

I also re-skilled later in Computer Studies and lectured for many years in Technical Colleges. I like to consider myself a well-balanced all-rounder!
In summary, it is Education, in all its variegated forms that drives my personal passion!

At present I enjoy blogging and am the creator of several "hobby" websites as well as a fully functional commercial website for a firm of accountants in Durban, Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa.

I consider myself to be a "Knowledge Worker" having a passion for "lifelong learning" and the enhancement of community skills, which focuses on extracurricular coaching and all aspects of EQ (Emotional Intelligence or the practice of "mindfulness")

I believe the following quotation is a good fit, and best describes me:

“Communities of practice are groups of people who share a passion for something that they know how to do and they interact regularly to learn how to do it better.”
- Etienne Wenger

I think I have finally stumbled upon what I consider to be a suitable niche and hope to be actively blogging soon!

Ciao for now,
Arthur

So awesome Arthur, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Hey Arthur! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. I was checking your profile and saw it hasn't quite been setup yet. I thought I'd share this video in case there were any problems on your end:

Definitely get your account setup. It'll lead to better help within the community. You'll make a better connection with other members with a picture and a short description. We are all people after all.

Anyway, let me know if you have any questions or need a hand with anything! Look forward to seeing you around the site more! :)

HOW TO GET YOUR HANDS ON MY AWESOME BONUS!

I wrote out the exact steps I take to start a new website from scratch. This includes how I pick a niche, come up with content for the site, and monetize it. These are the EXACT strategies I use every day and I've been working for myself full-time since 2008. I know first hand that they work. :)

Hi Steve,
Thank you for this, and it is good to know that you are standing by to help! Although I have some experience in building sites via WordPress I would like to be thorough and start at the beginning and take you up on your offer of the "2014 Road-map to Success" Would you be so kind as to point me to the link?
Thanks once again and kind regards,
Arthur
