Recently, I had the opportunity to be on the receiving end of a socially responsible person. More importantly, I met this person online a few months ago. Well actually, I purchased a few plugins that he created and through a few support tickets have gotten to know him a little bit. I must say that his support staff is incredible too! Ok, so who is it? What’s his name you might be wondering? None other than Blair Williams of course! The very site that this blog rests on is about mentoring online and Blair Williams has been a mentor to me.
Let’s get down to what struck me as one of the most socially responsible actions i’ve seen online to date. It all started with an email. Apparently, Blair had a client that he was working with, fall under a brute force attack via his word press site. In dealing with the issue Blair threw together a WP plugin that deters such an attack and sent it out to all of us. I quickly downloaded it and installed it on my site. And then I thought to myself, “wow, here is a guy that found a solution to a problem and shared it with the masses without even asking for a dime.”
It doesn’t stop there, I’ve been struggling through the development of my own site. Knowing just enough to be dangerous and put a site together, I’m now learning about site optimization and page load speeds. I gotta admit at this point the I’m just climbing the curve and the time it is taking me to learn this curve is frustrating. I just want to fully launch my site and have an amazing experience available to my end user. So with my newfound respect for Blair I reached out for help, direction, guidance, anything! He responded and gave me great direction and advice with in a few hours of my email.
No, this post doesn’t teach you how to do anything with technology or learn how to be a better marketer of your products. But, there are lessons to be learned and they can be find within the words shared in this post. I’ve always believed that if you help enough other people get what they want in life, you can have whatever you want in life. In my book Blair Williams comes from that same belief.
In the near future I will blog more about his awesome plugins otherwise known as WordPress Membership Plugin, Pretty Link Pro and Affiliate Royale. All of which I use on this site. I’d like to take this moment to publicly thank Blair for all that he does in the community and most of all, for being socially responsible.
