“Never mind. I got it!”
And I did GET it! Go ME!
No longer living in Danville, means I can’t just use my “call a friend” feature and get help whenever I need it. It’s no big secret that anything technological confuses and frustrates me, but I’m on my own now….I have to learn how to do it. I’ve always been an advocate of learning the ropes. I mean, you can hire, or ask for help, but in the end, no matter what you do with your life, your success is up to you because it’s your butt in the sling should the sh*t hit the fan. Can You Help Me? Sure….but only if you’re willing to learn how to do it yourself.
My son has authored two articles on this page, but he wanted me to write them. “No” I told him. “I can help you edit, and proof read, but I’m not writing it for you” and so he sat down, in long-hand wrote his own columns why he thought his superhero choices belonged in his top-ten list. As his mother I wrote the preface to his columns demanding respect. I mean, you don’t have to agree with his thoughts, but the chat rooms are filled with those who’d like nothing better than to tear you up and spit out those whose opinions on superhero’s differs from theirs. I don’t get it, but I’ve read it. It took my son several days to write out this thoughts, then when completed, I published it for him…but he did the work….he’s the one who had to defend his choices…pass or fail, his columns were on him. Here’s my point…..
I sat for 3 hrs this morning and went through YouTube videos, I Googled Meta inserts, I went into chat rooms, and I poured through page after page on how to sneak in a verification link for my webpage, but here’s the thing, I eventually learned how to do it. I had to….Dooney and Bourke wants to check our your page, before they let you Rep them….I get it, because I’m starting to learn the process of becoming a luxury brand affiliate, and in order to be the best I can be, I have to learn the ropes, much like I had to learn how to write and market my columns….much like I am going to have learn how to be my own Tech Support and trouble shooter. Can You Help Me? I can…there’s a lot of things I know…but you have to come correct and be willing to do the work…..because in the end, you are responsible for your own success…..the buck stops with YOU! It’s taken me years to create and develop the following I have…When I write, “If you want what I have, you gotta do what I do“…..I’m telling you that I’ll give you a hand up, but I won’t give you a hand out…and I hope all you fledgling soon-to-be-famous writers out there understand this. So, I gotta go. It’s as hot as BALLS out here, and I need to go unpack a few more boxes. Geesh, will this ever end? Anyone want to come help me? I’ve already started it…I just need someone to finish it…LOL. Be Blessed.
