Never ask whether you can do something. Say instead that you are going to do it, then fasten your seat belt.~Julia Cameron
First of all, let me tell you one thing–I am not a techie. I never was mechanically inclined. Even using a vacuum cleaner ranks among my top 10 least favorite things to do.
I’m a writer, pure and simple.
So whatever possessed me, in 1999, to go to a nearby Radio Shack, buy a jack and get my first dial up connection to the Internet?
It’s that same curiosity that has led me, a dyed-in-the-wool English major, to learn about blogging, autoresponders, landing pages, search engine ranking, Twitter (yes, I tweet!) and how to create Facebook ads. In fact, I have always seen the Internet as a place where boomers in general and writers in particular can flourish–if we learned how to use its tools.
You see, you don’t need to be a computer whiz to succeed online, or to grow your offline business using the Internet. What you need are the qualifications for success in any endeavor–determination, persistence, consistency and integrity.
But these days you also need a website. And you can build your own quickly, easily and inexpensively, using the same system I’m using right now.
Got questions? Need a little push to get started or some direction to keep going? Let me know. Let’s rock the Web together!
