I was asked several times how I created this fishing blog, with whom did I signed up with, who is hosting my site, etc. Thus I created this “How Blog was Created?” post which explained in summary how I went on to become a Blogger & eventually an Affiliate Marketer.
Though I managed a B2B (Business to Business) eCommerce site for a client for many years, I do not know how to create a website or a blog which always has been something I want to do to document my accumulated fishing knowledge & experience of more than 46 years…& still counting 🙂
Without any guidance I signed up with a platform named SFM/DEA (Six Figure Mentor/Digital Expert Academy) which I spent about 3 weeks without learning anything significant about how to become a blogger & affiliate marketer. All I hear was about how the speakers gotten rich through their system which is not something I’m looking for as a newbie. The last straw came when I was asked to pay more for an optional upgrade upon which I terminated my account & luckily gotten my refund back.
Thereafter I stumbled upon another platform named Wealthy Affiliate through another person who like me started on the wrong footing with SFM/DEA. After learning about his experience, I signed up with Wealthy Affiliate as a Free Member & learned more in 1 week on Blogging & Affiliate Marketing than the 3 weeks I spent earlier with SFM/DEA.
As a Free Member I get to learn the basics in the 1st week & even created a skeletal structure of my fishing blog. In the 2nd week after talking to the founding member Kyle I signed up as a paid Premium Member (at a very affordable US$49 monthly) as I’m sure this is what I want to help me become a Blogger. At the same time I also learned a Blogger can become an Affiliate Marketer earning some pocket money or side income at the same time. In fact I took up a Yearly subscription (earning a good discount) as I’m so confident about this platform.
To cut the story short if you have a hobby, past time, experience, etc (what I called a Niche) like fishing & would like to share it in a blog with the world online & earn some passive income as an affiliate marketer promoting products related to your niche…sign up with Wealthy Affiliate as a Free Member to embark on this very exciting journey!
But if you would like to find out more, please check out my blog Earn Affiliate Income which I explained in details my entire journey how I become a Blogger & an Affiliate Marketer with merchants like Amazon, eBay & Tackle Direct.

All the best,
