Will you be in for the payoff?
But: your will meet people - if you want to! Oh, yes the fringes on this job are mui bueno if you know what I mean. :nudge: :nudge: :wink: :wink: :say no MORE!:
Here's what we will teach you:
Part 1 - The Basics of Blog Repair
How to look at the source code of their blog and fix most problems in less than two minutes, but tell them about it an hour later.
IN NEARLY EVERY CASE the problem is something like a missing ">" sign that they erased in the underlying html code while not not knowing it was there in the first place.
You will work on all the major systems Mac OS X, OS IX, OS VIII ... Blastoff! Unix, Linux, Web T.V., iPod, Cell-phones, video game players, and if time permits, Lisa, Apple, Commodore 64, TRS-80, CMS, MVS, DOS, and possibly even Windows systems if any interest is still out there.
More important of course are all the major browsers used today, Firefox, Safari, Mozilla, Netscape, Visual Basic 6.o and Internet Explorer.
The basic blogger engine types are also covered as well as the code that supports them HTML, CSS, JAVA, Cocoa, Tea, Expresso, Soda, and Jack Daniels. It would be a rum job if we didn't cover it all.
Part 2 - Jazzing up Their Template/Making Their Template Pretty
How to Earn Extra Bucks through Customizing a Customer's blog or post so that their blog looks a little more special than their friend's. If you work this right, contacting their friends listed on their sidebar and offering your services, you can keep this going for months, if not years simply by running two different blogging consultant identities! Mucho Dineros!
Part 3 - Emergency Design Services
Hold on Huston! This is where the BIG dollars are.
"Suzi's graduation is tomorrow and I've just got to get this pretty party page up on time! Help me please - can you get it done on time?"
Part 4 - Tactful Consolation and Damage Control
Sometimes your clients will get themselves into embarrassing situations and it will be up to you to get them out of it. Here's an example.
"Well, you see Ms. Westen, when you posted those pictures from the beach party on your blog, you weren't just storing them on your own computer. No. You see there's this thing called the Internet? The World Wide Web?
That's right Ms. Westen, the whole world, the whole wide world. No, I don't think the whole world saw the pictures you took of you and Mr. Trumpet fooling around. Fortunately for you there is a lot of competition for that kind of stuff, but the thing is, I took the photos down, but you really don't know who copied it, or where it might show up again.
Yes. Someone could copy any of the photos and put them up somewhere else. Yes. Even the really, really naughty ones. No, actually by the standards of the internet yours are quite tame, really. Um, how long were the photos up? That long eh.
Well, I think you've got to assume that you are going to be pretty well known within a couple of months Ms. Westen. At least you did not have any live video files. Heh, heh, heh. Oh, those were on Mr. Trumpet's blog but you made him take them down, oooh, that's, that's not so good.
Well, videos can be downloaded too. I see, well take it from me, even if he tried to make it impossible, there are people, we call them hackers, who specialize in downloading things, no, they don't have a cough, they just get in where they shouldn't, like with a hack saw, yes, who specialize in this sort of thing and that video is probably making the rounds too.
How long was it? No, how long was the video up there Ms. Westen. That long? Well if you let me see it I could probably tell you how much distribution its likely to get... not a chance in hell, yes, I totally understand, and I respect your privacy.
The upside is that with an hour long video it will probably be limited to commercial sites where people have to pay to see it, so fewer people will probably see it. I knew you'd feel better about that! Yes. Ah, um. The downside is of course, that at an hour the video is long enough to release and sell as a DVD.
Well they should, but once these things get out they generally don't give the victims any money. No, it is awfully unfair, Ms. Westin, though you can sue them, if you can find them. My guess would be Singapore, or China, or maybe Russia. Or New Jersey. Yes. Let's hope for New Jersey.
Other problems, let's see, you did put your name and address in your blog so you might want to consider changing both, or at least moving. I'm sorry, I don't mean to upset you but you are really sort of a celebrity now.
Really, there's no need to cry Ms. Westen. Really, please don't cry, everything will be all right. Look on the bright side Ms. Westen, the pictures are really most attractive. Really.
No, no, I didn't stare at them, but to take them down I had to look at them a little, please don't cry Ms. Westen. Please. It makes me most upset to hear a pretty girl like you cry when there is nothing that I can do about it. There is? Gee, you sound really upset about this. I could help? I'd like to. Would you like to come over and talk about this over a drink? Maybe we could work on that whole name problem of yours. Yes, see you at 7. Ms. Wes.. Carol. That's a nice name. My name is Bob. See you at 7."
Now of course this is nearly a worst case scenario. Mr. Trumpet could have been her boss and pulled her into his office to say the dreaded words "You're Fired!" in the middle of the call, but I wanted to keep this example simple.
Part 5 - Selling Blog Repair Internships
Of course, the last big step you can take is to train other Certified International Internet Blog Repair Technicians. Once you have passed the training course you can recruit and train other Certified International Internet Blog Repair Technicians. At first you get a larger part of their fees, but as they recruit more students, your share goes down, but you will always get a small portion of their gross. Now there is a limit to how many Certified International Internet Blog Repair Technicians there can be, we will accept only the best.
We have to say that, this is not some fly-by-night pyramid scheme only interested in your initiation fee. So, don't count on recruiting new International Internet Blog Repair Technicians as your primary source of income like some of these multi-level marketing schemes, but the pennies do add up if your trainees learn the business right and keep their customers, and keep them happy. That's just plain old good service and business sense.
"I lost a really good friend a few years ago and was really depressed, yeah, I got work, good work, but it just wasn't the same, I found myself spending more and more time floating around on my pad, blowing off Piggy, that's my girlfriend, and let me tell you, she get's really angry when she's ignored.
I know it's not easy being green, but for a frog like me, well let's just say I had a really close, personal. relationship with this friend, I had never let anyone get inside me quite like Jim did, and when he was gone, well, it was like I was a different frog. He was more than just a boss. He was a mentor. I always felt lucky watching other people at their jobs, slaving away, in law firms, or accounting offices with other people pulling the strings, heck, they might as well have been puppets. But working with Jim was never like that and with him gone, I felt a little different, sounded a little different, it just wasn't quite the same inside, but I had to keep going you know? All those kids, my fans, I just could not let them down, no matter how low I felt.
Then I found the International School of Internet Blog Repair, and now I have a little something to do to distract me when I'm not feeling quite right. It feels nice to help people and while I can't do it full time, I still get something good from it. My friend The Count helps out too. He really loves it. He's a natural. He finds it very exciting, even more than me. He breaks the HTML into one's and zero's and fixes blog's that way - frankly I think its a little wierd, but he's better at it than I am! I wish he could work more quietly though sometimes.
Had to cut my friend Ernie's access off though. He was having too much fun making Bert's blog do silly things. One night Bert left his Mac on with his Blog open and suddenly around two in the morning a giant rubber duck appeared on the screen quacking you know what song so loud it blasted Bert out of bed so hard he almost went out the window! Ha! Have to admit that was a pretty good one, but when I saw Ernie hanging out the window by his feet I said, "Wacko Jacko, this has gone too far!", got Bert not to drop Ernie if I agreed not to let him on my G5." - K.T.F.

Fine Print (This is a joke. It is only a joke. If anyone does start such a school however I claim a share of intellectual property rights and a small share of the gross. This post is partly inspired by the work of Bob Newhart and his classic Bus Driver School Sketch and his great telephone routines. Bob, please don't be annoyed if sections of this post are too close to your material. I was churned through the same (1076) character building mill that you were and probably spent as much or more time in jug.)
