Welcome to Tech for Luddites!
Hi there! I'm Elizabeth Kricfalusi, a marketing and communications professional who's often been described as "the most technical non-technical person I know." I started the Tech for Luddites blog back in January 2009 because I had often heard friends say things like, "I wish you could do such-and-such in Microsoft Word!" or "Why can't you do such-and-such in Facebook?" To which I would reply, "You can!" I figured if my friends had trouble finding these solutions, other people probably did too and so I thought I would share my tips and techniques with anyone who was interested.
Well, it turns out a LOT of people were interested! The blog now gets somewhere between 50-60,000 visitors a month and I receive many comments and emails from readers who thank me and tell me it was the only place they could find the answer to their question.
T4L (as I like to call it) went on an extended hiatus from 2010 to 2013 during which time I took a full-time job (and then left it) and thought about what I wanted to do with the blog going forward. I got motivated to start writing entries again when I participated in a blogathon in June 2013, writing a post a day. And while I enjoyed getting back to blogging, I knew I wanted to do more with it.
Announcing Tech for Luddites: The Business!
I'm now offering several new services:
- Delivering training workshops to businesses and nonprofit organizations
- Setting up self-hosted WordPress sites for bloggers and website publishers
- Providing a fast, low-cost option for people who need small techie jobs done
I'm also offering new ways of delivering tips and techniques to my readers, including downloadable publications and how-to videos. I'm starting with several WordPress-related tutorials but will be expanding my library into other areas such as social media, Microsoft Office applications and, well, anything else I think might be helpful. (I'm open to suggestions!)
