Writing a Feedback
Included in the lesson/video, "Post your Website for Feedback", is a requirement to write a feedback for, at the least, a credit. This did not go down well with me. Why is that necessary at this time?
I thought I was not qualified or had not learned enough from WA to be able to accomplish task. After all, I was barely two months old here. And I assumed my website had not been built out to the level that will warrant a feedback. Then I read comments from some members of our WA Community (Am I allowed to mention names?). And discovered I was not alone in my thinking.
But in my guts, I felt we were missing something. So, I decided to watch the video again and reread the notes that went with the video. Lo and behold, the reason for that requirement was clear. Why did I not see that initially?
Firstly, it is the critiquing from members that enhances the quality of the website. Besides, Google and Bing will take note. Ranking will follow and so also traffic and revenue.
Also, for me or any of us to critique a site does not require a website expert portfolio. No! What is required is the opinion of or the feeling of a visitor, any visitor, to the site. That says it all.
Finally, we are asked to give a minimum of 250 characters in the review for one credit. I thought that was a good bargain, unless one has a better way to get the credits to receive own feedback.
Writing feedback is good and necessary.
