Learn What I Have Learned Building Websites

Introduction

The first time I read the Parable of the Talents, I didn’t understand its meaning or what message was it all about. But now I know that the parable was not about money but about gifts you have acquired through time, or even gifts you are born with like a beautiful singing voice. The message is that whatever you are gifted with, God will be more pleased if you will have to share it with others through good means such as teaching or educating, inspiring by speaking before an audience, or by writing a book. If you will think deeply about it, it is just common sense. Imagine if no one will ever speak about the difference between peace and violence, the next generations will always be at war.

My Own Talents

The gifts I have acquired are those that I learned at school such as accounting, computer programming, web design and building websites. There are also those I learned by experience such as graphic design and writing; and those that I learned by myself through self-studying such as blogging and  the use of a variety essential and productivity softwares. There are also those that I learned through mentors such as to understand the human-ness of a person, including myself. My innate gifts are my abilities to use my intuition in making simple and major decisions, and  of course the love that I was born with and gifted by my parents.

To Teach You Is My Way Of Sharing It

It will not be fulfilling if I won’t be able to pass to others the gifts that I have acquired through education, mentoring, self-learning, and experience. I feel that it is my responsibility to share the knowledge that I have learned. And one way to put that in action is to teach it to other people like you. My skill is not to speak before a crowd; thus I have chosen the Web as my platform to share my knowledge. After all, my forte is about the Web.
