Growing up around computers, I knew the last thing I wanted to be in the whole world was anything having to do with technology. As a part of my teenage rebellion against my father, who was a software engineer and a guest lecturer at the University of Zimbabwe, I refused to learn anything beyond the basics. I’ve grown up since then.
It started with a job doing technical support for printers. After that I worked for Yahoo! in their Small Business department helping people build, manage, and troubleshoot their websites. Now I am the Web Content Manager for Stamp-Connection.com and their other sites, SCStamp.com and NextDayXstampers.com. Considering how much I love crafting and knitting, working on rubber stamp websites are a perfect fit for me.
Managing three websites within a very niche market has shown me how every business needs to approach their Internet strategies differently. What works for businesses that have a wider market will not necessarily work for my sites, and they may not work for yours. My next post will be about how different managing an e-commerce blog is from managing other types of blogs.
I love that I will be forever learning the different aspects of being a Content Manager and I cannot wait to share these lessons with you. That I am able to be a part of this Web Editors blog makes me very excited and I hope that I will be able to show you a bit of the e-commerce side of being an editor.
