Didn’t know that blogging somehow came in handy for me at work. Though my job is not IT related, suddenly I am being shoved into maintaining the department’s knowledge based website. Was just given only the admin user name and password and off I went. Managed to write and publish an article within 10 minutes. Effortlessly. The interface used is more or less the same as WordPress. Omg.
I don’t have official coding experiences but when I first started blogging, I was exposed to coding in blogspot. A friend taught me how to view source to obtain the SQL to add on my blog. I eventually did. And somehow understood the commands. Haha. After that, WordPress made it all so much easier with drag drop widgets. Such tools are made in heaven and such a life saver!
So it’s not useless to learn a new skill. You might not know when it will come in handy in life. Explore forth and go beyond!
