I’m doing an assignment for a little
Blogging 101, I mean, Buy Our Crap “course” I’ve been involved in. And I’m going rogue with this particular assignment. I’m supposed to be following up with comments I made on the class site about someone else’s blog, but I’m going to write about comments I made on the site and the blogger who helped me and the ones who didn’t. I’m also going to take this opportunity to review the course.
Though I’ve gotten some things out of it, I don’t like dirty motives. Hey, maybe we’re all looking to push something. I’ll even look to push this article on social media because I have much more important things to say and I want to be heard, but I’m not looking to sell you anything . . . especially not a crappy, over-priced product.
As follows is the conversation I’ll be writing about, and then an explanation. Author’s notes will be bolded and italicized. Also, the links to these posts cannot be seen unless one is in the class.
@rootjosh@samjhamdy@bruceallen@2020hinessight (Erica) @sonyca I got on a different laptop and my blog did not recognize me. I could not get in. Furthermore I could not get in here to write this message even though I was trying to go in through the emails. I just changed themes by accident (long story) and none of my widgets will configure. I’m doing the exact same things and they just don’t show up so I don’t have a profile page to log in to. It won’t let me make one. It says everything is okay and then nothing shows up on my blog. I had spent hours configuring everything too. How do you get into you blog from another computer (or this class if you forgot everything–I have a lot of email addresses they just are set to route to two places)?
The five people I addressed call themselves “Happiness Engineers” (Baahaa). They are there to answer questions, give feedback, and generally give support, according to them. None of them answered this post. It is @rootjosh that emails the assignments to us each day. He occasionally writes a post addressed to everyone, as well. I have never seen the other four present, nor have I seen any of them give any individual support, leaving the individual to fend for themselves. The point of any course is to learn and one MUST have some kind of instructor. What is the point of this course IF it’s not really about learning? Just . . . what if . . .it’s not . . .what if . . .
