Do you know what one of my favorite parts of the internet is?
It’s the community, and their willingness to help people out without anything in return. Sure, the web has it’s fair share of trolls and greedy corporate people, but overall you can just approach someone, say a blogger, ask a question, and get a straight answer.
Having trouble getting a PHP script or CSS effect to work? Visit a coding-oriented web forum and ask for advice. One of the many people there will most likely know what’s wrong and spot that typo on line twelve that you missed despite going over the code dozens of times.
Wondering what the easiest way to make a blog mobile accessible is? Just ask a blogger who has experience in that area. If you were to email me (there’s an easy form on my contact page), I’d write back in a day or two with a few recomendations, or refer you to an existing post of mine (or some other bloggers’) with the relevant information.

Where else are people so willing to help and advise others?
