Brailovsky’s lessons

Today I want to share a personal history. I tried to do a blog in 2000, and other in 2004, but is just this april when I decided to take it seriously. Maybe because the stage of life I’m living now (near forty years), maybe because I had some spare time, or because since december I wrote regularly for two news portals, or because I decided to do it, and definitively because I like to write and trying to explain complicated things in simple language, doing a blog was the “natural” step for me.

Of course, I had “more will than money”, and even if there are a lot of free resources available, my Twitter friend Ariel Brailovsky (@secretosenred) won a contest in Facebook and offered the people who most helped his campaign one scholarship to his course  Expertos en WordPress (Experts on WordPress).

What can I said? Two months later, this blog is the result of applying the course. I know that a lot of the content is not brand new for people who know me from years; but it is true that I found and share interesting new things an do new friends, and also helped me to grow.

Also I discovered, after making painful mistakes, that for no following the lessons as instructed, I ended spending more money and redoing the work (you can see the early version of the blog on  http://gjsuap.wordpress.com and you can see important differences, one of them is automatic translation function: I used to post in spanish and then in english, boring both audiences). This difficult experience show me that is easier to follow someone else’s advice better than trying alone (and I only move one or two steps away: using wordpress.com as host, by example).

I invite you to know Brailovsky’s lessons, and please drop a comment if you decide to launch your own blog, in order to visit you and comment your posts. Go! This could be the first day for you too!!
