Delivered a website-building session today for the British Library - their national Start-Up conference. I was keen to do something different - and as I am not a website designer, nor coder, I had to do something different.
The great thing of being asked to do these presentations is the research. This time I checked through what I thought I knew about current practice - and added it into a slideshow as I went.
Fine. And dandy.
Landing pages, drop shipping, MVP (Minimum Viable Product), latest design trends - all sorted now. And then a new acronym - MSG - that I can develop or use again.
I had a small idea of what I wanted to show people - about managing web designers and coders and how to make your decisions about your web presence and was then guided by the images available. This focussed the words I could use - and the acronym. By doing this in plenty of time I could sleep on some choices and let the back of the brain do its thing.
MSG worked for my website too - which of course needed brushing up quick-style ready for the national show. And here it is. MSG is a good focus for making decisions. You will be able to see the presentation once I get the video from the British Library.
I also learnt that MS Powerpoint has its own built-in image library now. Yay! Lots of Creative Commons images for free use. And I used the chance to learn Mobirise which is a lovely web-building space. Some quick help replies from DashNexPages also helped and I think I now have a good system for running my website. All paid for ha! No more ongoing hosting charges! Yay!
I will return to the site - like this Blog there are things to be tried out. (So nice not to be using Wordpress.) But yeah - if you ever thought of teaching & training as another income stream - do it.
You properly learn things you might otherwise think you know, but actually don't. And by making up your own guru acronyms you will realise the things you didn't know you know. Learning.
