    Hey there; hope everyone is doing well today.

    Been lurking on the forum for a while but decided to make an account.

    Here's why I'm here:

    1) Wasted my money getting a Master's Degree in Psych (Evolutionary, Social emphasis) to get "authority status" on the topics I love

    2) Wrote a book right after graduating in May that did well to get more "authority"

    3) Started blogging with a big site to syphon their audience to a landing page and build a list (so far 320 sign ups)

    4) Found out no one cares about my degree (damn) but my audience likes my content (awesome)

    5) Found out just how saturated "self-help through psychology" is

    6) Can't find a tweak to get my site to rank for keywords (it's just too broad & traffic conversions through the big site are inconsistent)

    So after 8 months my site sits with:

    DA of 15
    PA of 30
    320 email subscribers

    I was going for the "create great content & serve your audience" route but am now open to pretty much anything that works.

    I read the forum everyday and have learned a lot. This is why I want to first and foremost say thank you to those that share.

    Glad to be around
