I read a lot of blogs, books and articles on business. How to run a business, best practices etc. I never went to business school or have taken any type of business courses online or other. My knowledge comes from the trenches, being in the thick of realizing your business is stagnant and on the verge of either closing or outright failure. Learning from your mistakes on a daily basis.
The world of Bitcoin interests and confuses me all at the same time. Even to the point of asking if offering it as a payment method to my customers was a good idea. I'm not sure yet and after watching this very informative/confusing video explanation, I'm feeling like I have a lot more research to do before really accepting Bitcoin.
I am not a coder or web designer by any means, hence gravitating to a great service like Squarespace. I do have some basic HTML and CSS skills however, which have helped me create and keep up the company website over the years while using Blogger and Wordpress.
Many times problems have come up and I have done my best to deal with them on the fly. When a problem comes up regarding simple code I can troubleshoot and find a solution before long, but my skills are limited. When I can't deduce what the hell is happening, I do what most do and take to the Google machine.
I have written a blog of some kind for the last few years. One for the company, a few different iterations of personal blogs, with most just completely failing or boredom setting in. I have been frustrated with keeping two blogs, personal and business, separate for the last couple years. Therefore, I have decided to consolidate my blogging to one site with two different blogs. One for work and one for personal.
