Today, publish a post you’d like your ideal reader to see, and include a new-to-you element.
Blogging: Fundamentals, Day 4
Support doesn’t always go as well as you expect it to, especially if you’re starting off with a negative attitude. A few years ago I got my Jeep stuck in some pretty thick mud. A friend of mine offered to pull me out, but as we were doing that he got a little too close to the edge and slipped in; he was stuck too. Sure, he was just a friend helping another friend, but it was still a form of support. Life is all about support if you really think about it. That’s why it’s so important to have the right mindset at all times. This experience sure didn’t go as either of us expected: I didn’t expect to get stuck in the first place, and he didn’t expect to get stuck helping me. Neither of us got upset about it and in fact, we both found it quite entertaining. We eventually got someone to tow us out. Instead of being upset about it, we had just created a great memory.
My ideal reader is someone providing support/customer service. Although this reader would likely be involved with WordPress, I’ll also be sharing more general information on the topic. I want to help people provide the best possible support they can and keep finding ways to improve.
What new-to-me element am I going to try out? The Twitter timeline shortcode allows you to easily add your tweets to your site. The only code I needed to use was this:
