I don't think I want to go now. I hate school! I have always hated school. The main reason I want to go is for Justmommies so I can do more with it. So I started thinking about it and think its dumb for me to go. If the site gets so big that I can't do everything then it will be big enough that I can hire a webmaster to help? If I go to school I am going to have to give something up. I don't have time to do it all and right now this is my big priority. Dh is okay with me not going to school. But I feel like a loser. I just can't swing all of this. Not if I want to homeschool too. And I just dont' see why I need to go to school if my reasons are to learn web design for Justmommies. I do not want to design sites for other people. I like doing graphic design but I dont' think I would like doing websites for others. They are a lot of work and people are picky.

I don't think you are a loser if you don't go back to school. First of, you don't have to go to school to learn more for JM. Just find someone or something to teach you if you find something that you are unsure about. I think JM is great and you are doing a great job. And like you said, if it gets too big, HIRE someone

I def dont think you are a loser. I tried college twice and it just wasnt for me. But if you do want to learn more computer stuff alot of colleges do offer online courses. If you go to your local colleges webpage you can probably find out more info. Another bonus with online classes is that you can do it on your free time instead of giving something up or rearranging your schedule to make it to class.

ITA!

LMAO, Patty! You worry too much hon! I don't think that makes you a loser. If it makes you one, then I guess I am one too, b/c I only have a high school diploma. Beside, if someone thinks you are a loser for this reason, then let THEM work it into their lives, kwim? You are doing a GREAT job with the site, college education or not!

You have identified a problem.

You have considered several solutions, each with its pros and cons.

You are strongly considering eliminating the solution which would cost you money and time with your family, would add stress to the lives of all the people you love, would jeopardize the education you want for your kids and could easily be handled by someone else.

How does this possibly make you a "loser?"?????

I LOATH school!! I don't even have a degree, but I'm doin okay! I make a decent living.

How bout just taking a web design course. Since you may not be going for a degree, how bout finding a vocational school that just offers the classes you need/want to take?

Plus with your site (full time job!) and your kiddos, I don't blame you one bit for not wanting to spend any more time doing other things.

Just pick up the Webmaster for Dummies book. Save yourself the stress and money of going to school when you are not ready. Good Luck!
