Online adventures in 2000
My online adventures started back in 2000 and I thought that, if I started out strong, by 2010 I would be well on my way to making a good living online. But with one failed venture after another, I threw in the towel on the whole online thing.
Here is what went wrong. I’m no techie. I get by with what I need and I don’t push much further than that. On top of that, back then, I didn’t even have the time to investigate, or to try many things out, or to discover some new tool or program that I could use. I much less had the time to learn how to program in HTML in order to set up a website.
Even though I had come across a few opportunities that provided website templates, and that promised to “guide you all the way”, they all fell short of their targets, and the amount of work required to get started was just overwhelming. With a young family and a demanding job, there was just no time to keep pushing forward.
Fast forwarding to 2018: a lot has changed
In my personal life, my girls are all grown up. They are still at home, but the demands on my time are much less, and in reality they are a big help around the house and in the mission field. My job, as a missionary, though still demanding in a different way, allows me to spend some time setting up and maintaining a Website. The fact that the website I am working on is totally related to my “job” is a major bonus. I’m doing the Bible studies anyways, why not upload them and share them?
But maybe one of the biggest factors that has changed, is the advancement of online technologies. Word Press has literally taken building a website to a whole new level, making it easy for even a beginner to use. But that isn’t all.
I had started a Spanish language website (www.libertadenverdad.org) back in 2015. My daughter did the framework, and I provided the content. But it was cumbersome. She was studying at the time and wasn’t able to dedicate much time to updating the website and we were stuck about how to set it up, and how to maintain it, without spending all of our time on it. I posted faithfully for one year, uploading a devotional once a week in Spanish. Then I stopped. I was using Word Press to post, but the interface between Word Press and my actual website was a bit disjointed and I found myself doing tasks twice in order to keep the website looking OK.
An opportunity to do it differently: Wealthy Affiliate
With where am I now, with the little experience that I have, and the still limited time, if I was going to do anything online, I needed something, or someone, to guide me. I was willing to do the work but I just didn’t want to be doing the work and getting nowhere. I needed to see results, what I need is concrete results.
I found Wealthy Affiliate. It was by chance, and at the time I wasn’t actually looking to restart my website, much less start a new one. But what I saw, and what I read, prompted me to sign up for the free trial. That was in March 2018. Like I said, I was not in the “create a website” mode at the time.
Fast forward to October 2018, and everything is in order to give it a go. I started the training, and it was simple, and straightforward with step by step instruction. It even came complete with real tasks that help you to set up a website. By the time I finished the Level 1 Training, I had a website up and running.
The time I took to finish the training was maybe a few days, on and off. Granted, the website was just a basic one, a bare bones website, but it was a website. And it was a “free” website, which means that the domain didn’t belong to me, but still, it was a website, a fully functioning website. The free trial allowed me to experience 10 sessions of training, and see the results of that training put into action.
Decision Time: to keep going or not
Every day we make decisions based on our experiences. Every day we look forward to where we want to be, and to what we want to do, and we make decisions. As I finished Lesson 10, I found myself at this juncture. Do I keep going? or do I stop? I had really enjoyed the training experience, and I had learned a lot in a short period.
Read a little more about my first experience in this blog.
I have now finished 3 Levels of training (30 lessons in total) and in each lesson I take definite steps forwards on building my website as I complete the assigned tasks.
Learning and doing is not for the faint of heart: as with any venture in life, perseverance is key
I won’t say much here. I’ll just refer you to a couple of blogs that I wrote for the WA community. I think you’ll get an idea of what hard work and perseverance will get you. When work is fun, is it really work?
I really struggled with one part of the training, but the problems were mostly self-inflicted and I struck out big time.
After figuring things out, the results kept coming and I found myself moving on up.
When work is fun, is it really work?
A thumbs up: I for one, highly recommend WA
Many jump into the online rat race hoping to make some money and be able to work from home. I’ll be honest, my first motive is not the money. I needed a platform to be able to upload Bible Teaching and do it efficiently and as pain free as possible. I found that with the Wealthy Affiliate platform.
I am extremely satisfied with what I have been able to accomplish so far and I am extremely satisfied with what I have put together as my website.
I am not going to be blind to the opportunities that this platform and the training have to offer in regard to making money. If I can do something I love, and provide something that I know is needed by many, and if that something can bring home a little money, I’m not going to throw it out the window.
For those whose primary purpose is to make money, with perseverance you will get there. I’m going at the money making front in a somewhat passive manner, but I can already see the framework in place for things to move forward in the not too distant future. Doing things right, has its reward. Wealthy Affiliate guides you to do things right and you will be rewarded.
But what do you think? The contents of this website have been developed using the Wealthy Affiliate training that I started on October 6, 2018. It had been six months since I had signed up and I had to do the password recovery before logging in. Leave me a comment and if you have any questions at all about Wealthy Affiliate, I’ll be glad to help.
