Take my friend Wendy Sue Web Guru. Wendy built my site. Then she built her site:www.wendysuewebguru.com. Wendy is a great web guru. She loves the stuff. Wendy is also a problem-solver. She sees through obstacles and can formulate a plan to get to the other side. Wendy believes in herself and has a positive outlook. She’s a good coach.
So… which is she? A web guru? A coach? My take: she’s both. Wendy took my personal endeavor and gave it a place to live and to grow. I don’t know “hosting” or “platform” or other web geek-speak. Wendy does. More importantly, she can translate web geek-speak for us non-speakers. I didn’t worry during the creation of my site. I felt comfortable saying, “I have no idea what you are talking about.” Wendy made sense out of it.
Together, we worked out what I wanted to do with my mountain of writing. She made the vision come to life from bare bones to what it became: www.lindamalcolm.com. Now, I know how to add stories to my site, and I know how to easily communicate with my readers. It has been an exhilarating journey!
If you have a passion and need a forum to share it – and have no idea how to do it – don’t think about it in black and white: “I can” or “I can’t.” Wendy is someone who makes things happen. At the moment, Wendy is offering a great deal for a couple lucky people: creation of a website for $300. If you are interested, take a look at her site for details.
Believe me, you “can.”
Besides, “can’t” died in the war. That’s what my dad always says.
