She's Gone Premium & 30 Day Goals

Last Update: June 16, 2013
I got a HUGE surprise when I logged in to Wealthy Affiliate yesterday.

My rank went from 82-thousand-something to 1124! That is a testimony to how amazing I think this community is -- I just jumped right in with both feet, and I've been here less than a week. This is nothing but added motivation to keep learning, growing, and finally achieving the success I've dreamed off for the past 10+ years I've been "dabbling" online. Every question I've had so far has been answered in mere seconds. I see Kyle and Carson everywhere -- classrooms, blogs (even mine, woot!), chat, helping constantly.

Those guys work HARD. I'm going to follow their example.

Because, yes! I'm premium now, Wealthy Affiliate is my new home base. I purposely waited until the end of my free week to go premium to do and learn as much as I could about WA before I handed over some of my tiny budget to this membership. I've learned more this week than I have in years and I followed the Get Started tutorial step-by-step. Here's my site with its first page:

http://simplescrapbooking.siterubix.com/fun-fast-and-simple-scrapbooking

(I may change the theme again... I've tried a couple.)

I really want to make the most of my first 30 days and keep the momentum going, learning and doing as much as I can during the "discount" month so I can set myself up for earnings that will keep me here. :-) My 30-day goals are:

1) 2 hours of site work every day. The bulk of this needs to be writing. I want to get ahead on content creation and really get over my blocks about writing content for the web. I'm just going to dig in and start writing like crazy.

2) Being active in the WA community everyday, either in chat, by writing a blog, or hopefully helping others as I am able to.

3) Upping my exercise and nutrition (I'm lazy with both) to support everything I want to do as an entrepreneur and as a wife and mom. I want to see a measurable difference in 30 days.

I hope to meet and follow more of you over the coming weeks!

I think your first page looks and reads great! What does that ranking number next to our profile photo actually mean?

Hi Dhynes, I'm not sure, but I think it's just a metric for activity in the community, being helpful, and generally taking part in what WA has to offer.

Good job. Being active moves you up in this organization. You obviously are of 'the right stuff'. Keep at it.

LOL ... there are thousands of themes - my personal preferences tend to be clean, uncluttered, easy to read fonts etc.

I also go for responsive themes (look up "responsive design" on google) - this allows your WP site to adjust to the mobile world - where 50% of the planet will be in 2013 (smart phones, ipads, etc.).

Many of the modern WP themes are responsive, and you can look this up specifically from the WP admin panel when you go searching for themes. Don't fret about it at this early stage though - keep building content entries so the site gets some traction with search engines etc.

Cheers
