First, I really don't want to be some kind of Mr. Complain, but probably
will be my experience sooner or later interesting also for some other
After my first teaching experience I faced with a problem. Namely, I
wrote an article for the BlenderNation about a Blender Course, but after
weeks of waiting and bagging for any kind of response from the
BlenderNation, I was really desperate. Probably you understand that it's
important to share such an info, not only for the trainers, but also for
the customers and the new Blender users too!
It's true that I could publish my article elsewhere too, but
BlenderNation is the best source for such a Blender info because its RSS
feed is also published on blender.org and many other places, so it's
'trusted' and widespread source.
I would really like to see some contact person on the BlenderNation
which we could contact in the future and get some response from him/her.
Unfortunately Bart Veldhuizen who always responded isn't active any more
there. So, can some Blender trainer or some other BlenderHead (prefer
native English speaker) get writing permission on the BlenderNation for
this purpose? I can ask for writing permission there too, but I really
don't feel able to judge which article is written in the proper English
and which is not.
OK, my article was published (without any reply) after all on the
BlenderNation by "Tim Formica [Room335]" (thank you if you read this!),
but with such annoying situation will probably face also other**_**_
trainers, so we still need to do something about...
I also understand that must be news on the BlenderNation interesting,
exciting, fantastic & bombastic, so there will be no place for an
articles about every single Blender course on the planet, but I think at
least trainers first course report deserve to be publish there. After
all, that's kind of personal introduction. For my next potential courses
I will make a page on BlenderWiki where I will publish all this stuff,
boring or not... :)
