Feel free to check them out. I would like to save you the headache, though, and direct you straight to WordPress. If you want to save yourself some time, please read on and allow me to share with you what it is about WordPress and Wealthy Affiliate that will make you feel confident that your journey should begin right there.
Times Have Changed
Oh my goodness! Have I ever told you that i tried to be a blogger in 2012? Let me explain that really quickly. The idea of blogging was catching speed in 2012 and I wanted to jump on the bandwagon. I wanted to be an online sensation! I laugh about this today, because do you know how many blog posts I wrote in 2012? TWO. One on day 1 and the second the next day. I spent the rest of those first two days working on the appearance of the site. I tried setting up my blog all by myself. I realized I just couldn’t do it alone. But I didn’t know where to turn. The platform that I grew increasingly frustrated with was WordPress. I was turned off in less than two days.
When I created my very own free Wealthy Affiliate account, I was encouraged that in a matter of minutes, I could have a website up and running. what I learned next was that the website would be one from WordPress. I was immediately turned off. Why would I want to pour more time into a website platform that I had already completely failed at in the past? I wasn’t interested. A light bulb went off, so to speak, in my mind. Wait a second! What if things have changed in 7 years? Surely it can’t be as difficult as I thought it once was. I’m also more knowledgeable today. I wanted to give it a shot. A fair shot. After all, if I was going to commit to creating an online business hosted by Wealthy Affiliate, I needed to at least be receptive to this idea.
What I Learned Going Forward
WA is the platform I have chosen to host my online business websites. WA uses WordPress within their platform to allow its users two free websites (with the free membership). Side note: If you choose to become a Premium member, then you are allowed to have several websites within your WA account. Anyway, I knew these two companies work hand in hand, and I better become familiar with WordPress. It was within literally 2 minutes that I had my WordPress website up and running! That’s a far cry from my experience 7 years ago!
The Two Make A Great Pair
WA and WordPress work together to allow Wealthy affiliate members the best online experience. If you want to set up a website and begin laying the foundation for a solid income in the future, stick with it. WordPress has come a long way in the past few years. However, if you try to set up a website outside from the help of Wealthy Affiliate, be warned. It isn’t as easy to do on your own. I was able to take advantage of the tutorials and video training WA offers to its members. In using their help, I was able to have a website set up in minutes, if not seconds. Wealthy Affiliate provides a hosting experience that you can feel comfortable hosting your website/(s) on. They take care of the technology so I (we) can focus on running our business.
No Longer The Case
I remember the feelings of failure in 2012 when the future of my blogging grew dim. Heck, it was never bright. It never had an opportunity to grow dim! I learned that I needed help, but had no one to turn to. I didn’t even continue my writing. I could have continued posting to that very simple blog, but I didn’t. I was so discouraged, I quit altogether. I never tried again. Things were difficult for me back then, but today, with the help of the community at Wealthy Affiliate, I am more confident than ever with my newly created website.
Why Wealthy Affiliate?
Great question! Why am I resting easily within this platform? Simply, I’ve tried doing it on my own. It didn’t work. I found WA, or should I say WA found me. It has been an answer to prayer. There is help available in WA to create good content, learn about optimizing search engines, keyword benefits, driving traffic, and monetizing my online business. It’s all been created as a solid foundation and daily, I’m striving to add more relevant content to help others on their journey to financial freedom by working online – from anywhere!
Maybe You’re A Techie
and know how to create your own website and start your own niche or affiliate business. If that’s the case, I commend you. I wish I had what it took to be able to do it on my own, too. Actually, on second thought, I’m glad I don’t. Here’s why – if I already knew how to do this on my own, I would have never stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate. I wouldn’t have created the content I’ve created already if left to my own devices. I’m motivated, but not THAT motivated. 🙂
Hey. It’s your world. You’re completely free to choose the blogging website platform that speaks to you. I don’t fault you for choosing the one that fits. I’ll still be your friend even if you don’t choose Wealthy Affiliate! For me and my family though, this is it. Wealthy Affiliate has given us the opportunity for a bright future and financial freedom. I am beyond excited for what lies ahead.
