I've decided to try something new. Yes, I am going to make money now just for myself and not for others. Interesting concept. I will probably be lurking in new forums and trying to learn new skills.
Good wishes and good luck to my friends.
The Socrates cave parable (from Plato's Republic) comes to mind...those who have seen the sun, go back into the cave, and appear mad to those that have never seen, since they are shackled and can only see the shadows & reflections of the light behind them.
Well, now that you have seen the light, perhaps you appear mad to some of us - but not all.
~ Good luck with everything ~
It can be a tough transition from this pseudo teacher roll Iíve acquired back to that of a student, especially in the same school so to speak.
Rarely does a lesson I teach go by without hearing a question I have never heard before. The learner teaches us that no matter how experienced, how versed and adept we are, there are always things we ourselves have never considered.
In the end, the teacher must remain a student, for the act of teaching requires that we ourselves adapt to change... and to do this, your "teaching" mode can't be the only mode.
Hard to fathom
Thanks Deb... and lots of luck! :)
It's impossible to calculate how much you'll be missed as a moderator - your knowledge, intuitiveness, enthusiasm, wit, and caring (just to name a few;) have all contributed to making WebmasterWorld so helpful and special to me. Thank you for all the hard work and time you've given to make this such a great place.
I am so glad you're not leaving all together, though! I'm sure you'll do great in whatever you pursue personally or professionally. Take care, we'll see ya around.
PS - thanks again for the kind words you had for me in Boston, but most of all just for hanging out with me! I'm glad we met.
Just make sure you stick around.
