Examples of My YahooAnswers (&
reactions from others)
What does it look like to answer people's questions online?
In an effort to show that, I offer these examples of how I answer
questions on YahooAnswers, and how people have felt about those answers:
I have gotten similar reactions when I have posted answers to Quora.
The web pages I am directing these folks to are pages
focused on people who are not nonprofit or NGO professionals.
These resources are focused on individuals who want to make a difference
in some way, through volunteering or through a career. I
developed these pages after seeing the same questions again and
again on YahooAnswers and various
other sites: I'm under 18 - where do I find volunteering
opportunities? or I love animals and want to make a career of it
- how do I do that? or I want to volunteer with seniors but I
don't now where to begin or How can I devote my life to helping
others all over the world? and on and on. And when I looked online
for answers to those questions, the information varied in quality, and
what good information I could find was all over the place, on various
different web sites. So I decided to create pages
that both offer my own professional expertise - for free - and that link
to the best information out there, in an effort to help people -
especially young people - access the best information out there and get
into volunteering quickly.
