About Windflower
Joined February 2018
I'm the web mistress, I like that term ;) , of a blog I've had for several years. I blog about being a suburban, empty-nest mom, that finally achieved the goal of moving to the country, and all of the challenges that entail. My crafts, my animals, my country experiences are all up on my blog.

I'm a techie from way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth. I started my very first website way back in 1996. I've also got LOTS of experience in answering help desk questions.

All of my websites are the Plucky-Something websites. I think it fits with my sass. I've got two potential affiliate blogs up and running, and a third swimming around in my noggin. I can't wait to finally see my first dollar come in from an affiliate relationship. Patience.....

Great goals Laurie. It always takes time to start earning online but it sounds like you've got a headstart as you're already an experienced blogger. My sister is also an empty nester who moved to the country. I think it's a great niche audience that can relate to you

If you have any questions going forward leave a message on my profile page (just click on the icon). Or use the search box at the top where it says "Hey Laurie, search for help here..." You can also join in Live Chat (blue button on the left) during the first 7 days of membership. Of course premium members don't have any restrictions on using Live Chat.

I hope to chat with you again soon.

Things are going very well, aside from being sicker than a dog with the latest virus going around. I secured an affiliate agreement with the company that is the perfect fit for the narrow niche upon which I've decided. I'm trying to decide upon a new domain name, which is taking me a while, because I want it to be clever and appropriate. In the mean time, I'm mapping out the content that I want to write to establish the new blog. The best news, is that I don't see any other blogs out there for my niche, so I think it's going to be a nice, untapped market. I'm going to be using my own Wordpress site on a private server, so I will be skipping some of the content in the training. Thanks for checking.

Oh no, no fun at all. I hope you are on the mend soon!

When you choose a domain, you are going to want to choose something that is "brandable" versus something that has keywords within it. The reason this is the case is because as you build out your website, you can target as many keywords as you like within the content (that is how you will rank).

I have created a discussion here outlining the process and what to look for when choosing a domain name: This should help you out here and if you ever want to run any domains by me, simply let me know and I will give you some feedback.

PS. You can host up to 25 of your own domains here within the Premium membership on our state of the art hosting platform. :)

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Is it possible to have a different niche for every section of my website? For instance, I have the following categories on my site: DIY, Cooking, Crafts, Dogs, and more. I've had the blog since 2014, and I'd like to try to monetize it as it is. Is that possible?

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.
