Thank God yesterday’s over. Second meeting went as well as it could do, with the big cheese wanting to know the difference between and editor and a sub-editor, and how a magazine works differently from a web site. I think I made it fairly clear that I’m not going to teach anybody web design skills, as I’m not a teacher and I’m not a web designer either. I just do web design because there’s nobody else here to do it. I’m also a little tired of having to do “Internet for Beginners” sessions – it’s all very well, but I spend so much time explaining the basics that I don’t have the energy to explore anything in real depth.
I think it’s probably a good thing that I’m keeping a written diary of what’s happening here, and relating it back to what happened before Christmas. If nothing else, it will make good reading in my old age.
