So I have no idea what I have gotten myself into, but I thought it has to be better than what I have been doing. Here I am just trying to make a name for myself and an income, and I have been studying every way I can to make money from home being a stay at home mom. And there are a lot of scams out there and really confusing job postings. I once applied to be a writer for a company called Sling, and it turned out to be a scam. You could write and write and write, and your articles may never be selected. I had my first article selected and my other 9 were rejected. Oh, and apparently you don’t get paid for your first article. Nice. Luckily, the company went under, and I was “released.” Which, honestly didn’t hurt my feelings AT ALL! I needed money as a stay at home parent so I can stay with my kids and that wasn’t going to happen with this company.
But I never gave up. I kept looking and searching for more and more ideas. I have watched countless videos, documentaries and webinars till I think my eyes are going to bleed. I have read articles that have been a lot of junk, and I have researched until I see what the successful bloggers are doing. And I thought, I can’t be the only stay at home parent that feels this way! That frustration and motivation has been what has really driven me to keep going with Just Add That Online.
And then I stumbled upon a site that has been amazing and changing my life! It’s called Wealthy Affiliate, or as the local community calls it, WA. I have been on here a full 4 days, and I am already learning so much! There are people with tons of experience including their own mistakes. Who knew I needed this in my life? I am like the normal person thinking, this is just a scam. And sometimes I still worry because no one wants to be shammed.
But the more I meet people, I find that I am very excited and honored to have met so many, and I am so thankful for the help I have received so far. I asked for help on back links, something you’ll need to know another day. And I had answers within seconds rather than hunting, searching and worrying for hours, days and weeks like before! Honestly, it seems like this is a fantastic community where people who are committed come to hang out. From back links aren’t as big of a deal as I originally thought to helping another fellow member (or two) in need, WA is a blessing! It just makes me so happy to be here!
I am so excited to be learning and to make mass improvements on areas that I have been stuck. I have been working on my sites Just Add That and Just Add That Online. However, I have really struggled to create content much less figure out how to monetize the sites. So I look forward to the more I learn in this community. It is so exciting to be a part of this!
As I find out more, I hope to continue to make progress in my rankings and making money. I hope that this can be a start to you making money online! I hope to make a web series soon with webinars and everything a stay at home parent will need! Wishing you all the best, and I hope this helps you as much as it has for me.
