SELF TAUGHT SKILLS

Skill building is essential in any profession

I have been building my skils which is a slow and painful process for me. Its mostly by trial an error and asking questions when I get stuck. I was a bit discouraged, but I know the past "classes" will help me tremendously. My posting hasn't been as frequent, but its a sacrifice that was necessary.

These are the steps I have accomplished the past few weeks:
  • Registering domains with GoDaddy and hosting them myself. I previously had only registered with Reseller Zoom and it automatically went to my hosting account.
  • Imported a blog from Blogger to a WordPress on one of my sites. As soon as the domain propagates I will be transfeing Ideas to its new home.
  • Downloaded a website template and put it up on one of my sites. I have even managed to customize colors, put ads in, create links, and add text! The lessons I learned while fooling around on the Blogger template helped me.
  • Researched my first internet purchase possibility. I have chosen against the purchase, but I feel comfortable I checked into it and thought about it enough.
  • Decided it was time to stop hunting and gathering information full time. I realize its time to spend more time using the information I've gathered and put to use the new found skills.
  • Gathered some confidence to share a few ideas to see if anyone else was interested. My great ideas weren't as great as I thought, but taking the step to get some input was a good move. It will make it easier next time I feel inspired and who knows when one of my great ideas will truely be great!
Overall the past week and a half has been productive. I feel now its time to move on to the next level and be making some money by my birthday, April 2007!
