Been reading up on SEO, playing with web tools, (very little) codes, and figuring out how things work.
Most people tell me its a waste of time, coding is too hard, and a steep learning curve etc. But then we can’t let people (no matter how much better they are) to tell us to not try to learn or at least understand what’s going on.
While I’m not able to do much now (or ever), at least I could ask intelligent questions to get things I need done. I know what works and what don’t; just that I can’t fix it.
Then I remember this quote from one of my fav book:
“Only when we know….will be be able to tell those in power that they are wrong to tell us that ‘there is no alternative’ (TINA)” – Economics: The User’s Guide by Ha-Joon Chang
Not going to let anyone TINA me.
