When in need ASK
When unsure ASK
If in doubt ASK
Everyone needs help sometimes
So why when someone actually does ask for help do they not accept the help offered?
This happened very recently. Someone asked for help, it was offered then rejected and not in a “thanks very much” kind of way, in a “how dare you try to help” kind of way!
I have to ask….why bother?
Why bother asking for help if actually it’s not wanted?
Why bother at all?
It makes others not want to offer help
Let me take you back nearly 2.5 years in time. A new Mum was chosen as a QuinnyCaster and for that role she starts up a blog, this blog.
She knew nothing of blogging, no idea where to start. Yet I did it. This blog is still going, I’m not saying it’s great or perfect by all means but it’s still here after that time and it’s going from strength to strength, and shall I tell you why and how?
I played around
I learnt some more and I’m still learning
There are loads of new blogs popping up on a daily basis, far too many to be honest, some good, some not so good, others following the bandwagon – that’s always going to happen but that’s a whole new post in itself.
As a new blogger though there will be loads of questions you may have
Things your unsure of
Things which are done wrong
How you proceed though is entirely up to you
You can plod along and do your own thing
You can ask questions
You can ask advice
But if you do……it may well be a good idea to actually listen to that advice or it may not be given in future
How you proceed is up to you but it may also determine the future of your blog and it will be interesting to see if some jumping on the bandwagon are still blogging in 2.5 years time.
Do you ask for help when needed?
I know I do as we all get by with a little help from our friends!
