I had dropped to 102 during sickness, recovered and advanced as you can see. Progress Achieved by me!
The posts are on my WordPress profile – 24. On my website (where you are now – faith-and-fun.com), I am now writing post 80. I will make 100 before the end of the year. My goal in ranking is to reach below 50 (this is my ranking on Wealthy Affiliate, my ranking on Google, Bing and Yahoo varies from post to post.) 4 more and I’ll be in the top 50. Gonna get there Mike!
ANOTHER GOAL REACHED
I was having little success in obtaining a Gravitor for my credit on comments when helping with SiteComments, so I went back to the training video Kyle made on setting up a Gravitor account. Then I re-started the process and this time I got it done! [Thanks, Kyle]
Now I can respond to more requests and earn credit while doing that. The benefits of following the training are great.
In the process of getting this done, I ran into a couple of spots I had to change on my Google Analytics account and get everything to sync so it worked. Just had to follow the prompts and directions to get it done.
Thes little ‘bumps in the road’ sometimes stop us in our tracks. Can’t let them win. Press on and if all else fails, ask Kyle, Carson, the WA community or Site Support for help. You will get that help very quickly. For sure!
SOMETHING ELSE TO NOTE
By this I am referring to the importance of writing posts on BOTH your website and WordPress (go to your profile page and choose ‘blog’, then write a blog). Important input: This blog is written TO Wealthy Affiliate members so no links needed here.
Why do I need to do this? If you are interested in communicating with other members, sharing personal stuff like this, here is where you can do this. Also, this affects your ranking with WA as you can see in the screen shot at the top of this article. I didn’t catch this in the training, so I had to find out the hard way. Now I understand and, as you can see, am following through and writing those posts regularly.
PROBLEM AREAS FOR ME
- Social media transfer of info from blogs
- Effectively monetizing my site
- Finding ways to quickly move from place to place within both platforms – WP & WA
- Filling out forms to join other affiliate sources (some are complicated; some use terms I am not familiar with so not sure how to respond to finish registering.
- How to reach Ambassador position without sales
These things are slowing me down and frustrating me. I know I can go back to training, but am not sure which training to review. The reason I am writing this transparently is so others will understand this is work, not a ‘get-rich-quick’ scheme.
BUT I am making progress and I will succeed in all the above. If you at the top can do it, with your help, I can do it also.

So they can stomp out forest fires.
Why do elephants have flat feet?
They got them from stomping out flaming ducks.
