Writing Quality Content About Web Development Interactivity In Portal Forums

September 30th, 2018

Okay so, over the years I’ve written a number of articles on Internet topics, and to do this I have to do a lot of research. I’ve read countless books from the best of breed in the industry. Not just those who are actually doing it, but also the research papers from the computer sciences putting forth their philosophical theories and math. One thing that I do not see enough of are articles that help website designers and developers integrate everything. Let’s spend a few moments to talk about this.

If you have some background in building websites or web development, there is a specific topic that I can’t find a whole lot of information on, although I do recall going to an Internet business seminar in Las Vegas once and one of the symposium breakout sessions had to do with the best ways to manage Internet forums on Internet portal websites. Although I was busy and couldn’t attend that particular session because it conflicted with another one, now I wish I had. You see there’s a lot to know about the psychology of keeping a community together and preventing cat fights.

Perhaps you’ve experienced this where you write something on an online Internet forum, and immediately someone comes by and calls you something terrible, rather than discussing the topic or debating the point. When this happens, feelings are hurt, people’s reputations’ are flamed, and it creates a negative user experience. It causes people to no longer value the website, or wish to participate. This ruins the chances for solid interactivity, building of community, and increasing traffic. Whereas it is true that a little bit of controversy does build traffic, the wrong type of bickering and bantering on Internet forums destroys all that and more.

In fact, it quickly becomes an issue with the brand name of the website, and sometimes people get so upset that they hunt down the Internet forum organizer and start in on them, or start complaining about the other party to them, and demanding that various posts get deleted. That’s unfortunate because as soon as you start deleting posts, everyone realizes what’s going on, and everyone claims their free speech has being violated. No matter that a portal website does not necessarily guarantee free speech, especially personal attacks.

No matter how much you put in your user agreements that people must get along, they will always push the limits and beg for forgiveness, next thing you know you spend all your time dealing with various personalities and conflicts as they drag you into their drama. There is a right way and wrong way to handle all this, and we need more online quality content and carefully constructed and authored articles to help website developers with these issues.

If you know anything about this topic or you have a degree in psychology, there are plenty of Internet readers who would love to read what you have to say. Please consider all this and think on it.

Freelancing in the Web Development Domain

September 28th, 2018

Freelancing is all about making a market for yourself in a given field. You have to consistently offer quality work and effectively create a niche for yourself in an already crowded ecology. Freelancing is a hard field to get into.

Competition is high and a lack of regular income is off putting but if you stay long enough in the game, the rewards are high and the freedom to do work on your schedule is a fruitful experience.

Web development is a saturated market as it is. There are plenty of big names in the field with an army of employees ready to do anything you throw at them. It is trying indeed to be able to sustain yourself as a freelancer in such an environment. Forget about flexible timings and convenient hours, at least initially, if you plan to make a living for yourself from just freelancing. It is only after a while when you’ve made a mark that you can afford to sit back and do jobs the way you had always wanted to.

What most people don’t take into account when starting to freelance, are the clients. The client always wants his work to be your number one priority, expect unreasonable quality standards and all this for the lowest amount of money that they get away with. It gets tiring and often leads to much friction between a developer and the client. There is still this mentality that people freelance because they weren’t good enough to get a company to hire them.

That because they don’t have a big brand name behind them, they are essentially cheap labor for what is undoubtedly some very high skilled work. This leads to some very frustrated developers who often start to second guess their choice to become a freelancer. But as any experienced freelancer will tell you, this is the way it is for every beginner and the way to get past this is to find a niche for yourself, to take on work that no one else would, to not give up and give each job you very best, and to excel at being the guy who gets the job done.

As with any good thing, freelancing too requires a little care and hard work in the initial stages for you to reap the benefits of it, as you would of a tree that you planted as a sapling and looked after tenderly with regular attention.
