Working with what you know!
There are few things as frustrating a finding out you are creating so many issues for yourself as you flounder about. it is a great deal like trying to learn to swim! The harder you flap your arms, the less distance you can cover.
As I have been in the "beginners pool" a good while now, I find that the lack of confidence in what I do know can cause some issues. However, it was reassuring to realise that you have some basis for the information that is being shared.
I had with some past posts created some pages that I was hoping would be evergreen! That was never going to be! They were my first items to publish and were my "babies" that I had slaved over!
Then I decided that I needed to change to Yoast. After adding Yoast, and along with working towards green lights with the old posts, have been working on updating a few of them.
During this process, I created some issues, and now several days later and with the help of one of our great Ambassadors, I find that I am able to work my way through, and move on to other issues. I will not know what problems I am creating for myself until I reach another level of education and understanding.
This is part of why this journey is so much fun, and so exciting! Each layer of education brings about so much understanding!
What I have learned?
Work with what you know and understand.
We are all different and learn at a different pace! Just because someone joined about the same time you did, it does not mean you both bring the same skill level or have the same goals!
If you do not understand, accept Kyle's teaching that just do it and figure it out later! Ok, maybe accept the answers from our Ambassadors as well. After you are a member for a while other long timers will also come to your attention as good people to ask for help from! They all have different special interests and together make up an unbelievable amount of working knowledge.
Just counting my blessings ~~~~~
