Finished Certification Course Three at Wealthy Affiliate

Hi my website friends.


I promised that I would keep you informed of my progress at Wealthy Affiliate.  The training is so good.  My problem has been finding time during the holidays to get to my studies.  Anyway, I finally finished Certification Course Three.  For accomplishing this, I received a new certification badge.  For each course we finish we earn a new badge.  This shows up on my profile page something like this:


I am really looking forward to having more time to devote to my studies, now that the holidays are over.

So look out 2017, here I come!


Would you like to learn how to build a website?  Would you like to build an online affiliate marketing business?  Wealthy Affiliate has all the training you will need.  And you can join for free and get 7 days of free lessons.  Sound too good to be true?  That’s what I thought.  So I researched.  I found so many positive reviews of Wealthy Affiliate and couldn’t find hardly anything negative on the whole internet.  Now if you want to know if something works, just ask the people who are doing it, right?  So do your research.  Don’t just take my word for it.  Then if you want to take advantage of these free lessons, a free starter membership and 2 free websites, simply click below.  It is free.  No credit card required to sign up.




So what have I been doing since I wrote to you last?  Let’s see.  I have been adding to my health posts on this website.  Again, with busyness of the holidays, I was only averaging one post a week.  Now in 2017, I am shooting for two or three posts a week.


I have become an Amazon Affiliate and earned my first small commission.  Yes!  Proof to me that this does work.  I have joined other affiliate programs; but haven’t gotten them monetized yet.  I joined Google+.  I will be joining Facebook, Twitter, and possible Pintrest within this month, if all goes as planned.


I have been spending much time on the Wealthy Affiliate Site.  I get notification emails when someone in my network writes a post or a training, then I must decide which ones to read and comment on.  I used to try to read all of them; but that has become almost impossible.  There are more and more people joining my network.  So that means more notification emails and more blogs and trainings to sort through.  I have 689 followers in my network as of this writing and I have been getting new followers each day.  My rank is now 32.


It is hard to choose which to read because they are all so good.  I am afraid I will miss something important.  As I said in one of my other posts, I had to cut down the time I was spending reading and commenting to have more time for my website and my lessons.  I may be cutting down a little further in the new year.  I have made so many friends and I so love reading and commenting on the blogs.  We are like a family.  We build each other up, we console when others are down, we inspire each other, we bring in humor, we share our accomplishments and we answer each others questions.


Since we are all at different places in our training we compliment each other.  The new person asks for help, the veteran gives help.  The person who is in lesson one, can receive help from someone who is on lesson two or three.  As we try new programs or plugins, we can share how they work or how we like them.  We can support each other when going through rough patches.  We can share knowledge we have received elsewhere with the Wealthy Affiliate Community.  It is a win, win situation.  If you would like to be a part of this community, you may join for free, simply click below:



Wealthy Affiliate is a training center where you can learn on the job.  Having a successful internet affiliate business doesn’t just happen. It takes work and commitment.  Some people seem to think they will learn all they need to know in a few days and in a month the money will be pouring in.  If you hear of someone offering to sell you a secret formula for this kind of overnight internet success, RUN!  Run fast and run far.  The bucks will be flying; but they will be going from your pocket to the person who has the “secret formula”.


Pssst:  I know the secret of the secret formula:  IT DOESN’T WORK!

It’s a scam to separate you from your money!


There is no way to make money on the internet without investing time. 


Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t promise overnight success.  The amount of success you will have, will be proportionate to the amount of work and time you are willing to invest in your future.  How much you learn from the lessons taught at WA is proportionate to how you put them into practice.  Some people will make money within 3 or 4 months; but mostly it takes 6 months to a year for a site to monetize to any real degree.  In some cases it may take longer.  So if what you are looking for is overnight success you might as well keep looking.  But if you are willing to follow the lesson plan, and you are ready and willing to invest the time to put what you have learned into practice; Wealthy Affiliate may be for you.


You can get started today for free.  You simply sign up.  You pay $0 to start!


They don’t even ask for your credit card number.  You will be able to sign up for a free starter membership, 7 days of free lessons, and 2 free websites.  By day two in the lessons, you will learn how to build your very own website!  You will be amazed at what you can learn to accomplish!  It’s a lot to learn at first; but there are many places to get help within Wealthy Affiliate.  You won’t be alone.  You will have a community to support you.  I will give you my personal email so you can ask me any questions you can’t find answers to within the WA site.  If I don’t know the answer, I will make every effort to find it for you.  If you would like to get started today, simply click on the link below, sign in and you are on your way!



You have seven days to decide if you want to go premium.

If you don’t want to continue, you are free to leave.  No strings attached. 


If you want more time to decide; the first month is only $19.


That will give you a month with premium benefits while you make your decision.  If you decide you want to continue, the monthly membership is $49; but if you are sure you are ready to commit wholeheartedly, you can become a yearly member for just $359. Which works out to about $29.92 per month; less than $1 a day! If you need more time, just continue monthly.  It is still a good deal for the amount of knowledge you will have access to.  The choices are all up to you and there is no pressure.


I will continue to inform you of my progress.  So you can wait and watch, if you want to see what happens with me; but it may take a while; because I am in no hurry.  I am enjoying the journey and the community.  I have a lot of lessons to go through, and a lot to learn.


Thanks for stopping by my site.  I hope you come back again.  I love company!


Please feel free to leave comments or ask questions in the comment section below.  I will answer all comments, and do my best to answer all questions to the best of my knowledge and ability to do so.  I enjoy getting comments and appreciate the interaction.  Thank you.

  1. Congratulations on finishing level 3 of the certification program! You have a really great site here. Full of fun and useful information. My mom is retired and looking for a place to focus all of her energy. I’m encouraging her to start a site about knitting, which is her main hobby. She has so much to share. I’ll show her your site as an example. Thanks!

    • Hi Joe.

      Thanks so much for reading and your kind comments.

      I think your mother would do well with a site about knitting. There are a lot of people who would like to know more and will be searching the web for their answers. I didn’t know anything about Affiliate Marketing before getting started with WA. Will she be joining Wealthy Affiliate?

      Yes. Do send your mother to my site, and all of her friends, too. Lol. If she has any questions; please tell her to let them in the comments section of one of the posts and I will get back to her.

      Thanks for visiting. I love company!


  2. Jeannie,
    I like that you keep your readers up on your progress in your training. The training and community at Wealthy Affiliate is more that worth the fees that are charged. The fact that you get free website hosting and live chat are a bonus also.
    I think the holidays got every one off of their schedules, now that they are over we all have to get back to work. Good luck on the next course and will be looking forward to your progress.

    • Hi John.

      Thanks for commenting. In another month, I will be at WA for 6 months. Time sure does fly when you are having fun. I will be putting another update on here at 6 months. I hope to be through another certification course by then. It is amazing how things change month by month and even though it seems to be slow progress to me; as I write down my accomplishments in a new post, I can see what I have learned and accomplished since the previous writing. Yes. WA training is the best!

      Thank you for wishing me good luck. I pray your journey will be enjoyable and prosperous too.

I love wealthy affiliate! It is the best place on the internet to learn how to become an online entrupenuer!! I have created my own website, with bags of content. I have learned how to engage with my audience and help them with their purchases through my reviews. I have put a lot of effort into this and I’m loving the feeling of knowing that I am actually getting somewhere and creating my own online business!! It great!! Great article Jeannie and good luck retirees 🙂

    • Hi.

      I’m glad you are back and ready to step up your game. Isn’t it amazing how much we learn? Congratulations on everything you have accomplished and I wish you much success in the 2017!

      Your rank will go down quickly if you put a little of your time into the community blogging and commenting. I agree completely that WA is the best place to learn how to be an online entrepreneur.

      Thank you for visiting and commenting.
