A Wealthy Affiliate Review For 2019 You Will Want To Read

work from home

Before I begin a Wealthy Affiliate review for 2019, let me back up and tell you why I became an online writer.

Picture it- 4 years ago, I was a teacher and had been one for a while. But, teachers don’t get paid much. And, my bills were increasing. I became sick, and didn’t know why. So, my doctor bills increased, and I missed days at work.

My house and car needed repairs, too. And, we needed an extra vehicle (needed not wanted- we had four teenagers!).

All of this debt, but no increase in pay. So, I became an online writer (more about me here).

It was going good for 2 years until I was finally diagnosed with lupus. Because my body couldn’t handle the stress of the classroom, I needed to work from home full time. So, I decided to up my game.

That’s when I discovered Wealthy Affiliate, and it has been a game changer.

About Chris

Hi and welcome to my website. My name is Chris, and I’m an online writer (obviously). But, seriously, it’s what I do to support my family.

Chris- Online Writing Adventure


What do you do for a living? I’ve always hated that question. To me, that question signifies that we work only to get by.

And, that is the last thing I want to do.

During my time in the working world, I have gone through two evolutions. When I first started earning money, I had just finished college and was starting a “career” I felt would serve until retirement. Unfortunately, it required lots of travel, and I had small children. After a few years, I made the choice to change professions to be closer to my family.

So, I became a teacher. And, for 9 years it was great. I had weekends, major holidays, and my entire summers off. I worked when the kids were in school and was off when they were. Only, the pay wasn’t good. As the kids got older, I looked for ways to supplement my income.

A part-time job outside of the home wasn’t going to work, though. It would eat up the time at home I gained by becoming a teacher. So, my dilemma was- how can I earn extra money, but still be at home?

The answer was becoming an online writer! I could work when everyone else was in bed (I don’t sleep much anyways). So, I began freelance writing. And, not only was it a means of providing extra income, it has now become my only source of income.

With online writing, I’m freer now than I ever been. Yes, I work the same amount of time as any other job (it is a business after all), but I can do it on my own schedule. I’m my own boss! And, I can express myself creatively.

Even more important to me, I can earn an income from home while living with lupus. You see, a few years ago I was diagnosed with lupus. And, it’s hard to work when you suffer from a chronic illness. So, working as an online writer has been a blessing in that regard.


How did I find out how to make money as an online writer? I spent hours researching working at home online. At that time, the information available was scattered and vague.

I pulled a little information from one place and some more from another. Eventually, I pieced enough information to be successful.

Unfortunately, along the way, I also came across all of those get-rich-quick scams. You know the ones. They offer instant success with no work involved.

So, as I was sitting around one day enjoying some down time, I realized that I had an opportunity on my hands. As a result of my own process, I had organized all of this useful information for myself.

And, I thought why not share it? I know that there are out there in the same predicament I was in- needing extra income, looking for a path to follow, or needing to work from home due to illness. Why not help them by sharing what I’ve learned.

So, I created this website.


I want this website to be a source of information. I want to help you become an online writer. Whatever your reasons for wanting to be an online writer, you and I share the same end results- making money through online writing.

To help you achieve your goal, I will be sharing tips about online writing, such as how to create your own website. I will also share with you tools that I have found useful. Not only that, I also tell you where to go to find even more helpful training. Finally, I will introduce you to a wonderful community of online writers that love nothing more than to support each other in this online writing adventure.

So welcome!

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best with your online writing adventure,
