Done asking for help
I’m all done with asking for help
By Paul F. Murray
After reading the blog earlier today with the subhead “I exist to assist” and, more importantly, reading the multitude of comments in support of the basic premise of the article, I am all done with asking for help or advice from anyone in the Wealthy Affiliate community other than Kyle or Carson or one of their assistants at the Help Desk. I will no longer post questions for the community to answer. Nor will I be participating in chat any further.
Why am I saying this? Simply because by reading many of the comments (not all, but most)underneath that blog, I got the clear impression, and the clear message, that there are many, many members of the Wealthy Affiliate community (not everyone, but many, many) who consider it a severe imposition on their time to have to answer the questions that other (perhaps less experienced) WA members ask.
Find information on my own through online searches? I’ve done that in the past, and the results have sometimes been good, and at other times not good at all, just a lot of frustration.
I remember when I had to set up some sort of Google mechanism in order to provide Site Comments. It took me four days—FOUR DAYS—to figure out how to do something that would have taken me no than probably a few minutes if I had had someone to help me. If I have to stop and take several days to figure out something on my own that I don’t understand, it’s going to take me 10 years to complete this training. But then, so be it.
Then there was Google Analytics. I tried to figure how to set up a Google Analytics account on my own from the information Google provided, but I was NEVER able to figure it out—it was simply too complicated for me to understand what to do. I still don’t have a Google Analytics account because I don’t know how to do it. Having a Google Analytics account is pretty damn important for anyone having a website, but I am having to get by without one because I was unable to figure out how to set up a Google Analytics account. So I do need help at times. I hope that I can get it from the Help Desk. I don’t need another day like
