What's With Web Developers And The Word "We"? by roaringlamb01(m): 3:12am On Jun 01, 2018
i see a lot of responses to post by developers and they always share a link to their websites, saying "see OUR jobs"... or call "US" on... why?!

they clearly don't own a company... and only use wordpress. is it the way to make them look good?! serious!? or what!?

i just makes me laugh a lot.

Please, i am a web programmer. i work for myself, and i m very good. let me show you what i have done in the past, and currently working on.

I think that is more personal and less distant than the "we" and "us" cards.

cheers.

We have worked with Multinationals and expatriates.

We are a team of seasoned and onioned professionals.

We deliver great work and meet contractual deadlines like kilode.

Whereas, it's just one guy sitting in his father's house wearing boxer and singlet all day in front of one old rickety Acer laptop grin

Every IT guru believes he is running a company and not freelance

"We" made for the whole company
"I'' name for freelancers

Most of the web developers on this forum are Hungary developers with very little skill in web development.
There charges are very cheap but they endup spending huge amount of there meaning ful time on your project only to end up designing a shitty site.

Just keep wondering If it is a crime to dream big.

I would rather focus on the quality of jobs done than the pronoun anyone chooses to call himself.

I don't understand what you tend to benefit from this hate thread..
I have a registered company with not less than 3 staffs working with me.
Every developer be it WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or Magento user must sound professional else Big firm won't notice you..
So if your ego has been deflated by one.. then hang it over with 1 LTR bottle of ABSOLUT Vodka..

Lol. Using 'We' instead of 'I' seems to give more credibility to a business. Like people would be more comfortable dealing with an established business that has employees than working with a freelancer imo.

grin Especially all these WordPress demo editors.
Idiots forming developers.

When I decided to go into content management systems, I opted for drupal, magento and Joomla.

I build any website, I will still be the manager. cheesy

It is very painful how these demo editors are spoiling business for some.

For us, we are a team...

7 people coding and programming all day and all year.

I saw someone's profile yesterday on Facebook, the developer claimed to have done so many jobs it will make your head spin, owns a company and all that.
But the gawddam website is uploaded to a free platform online - who does that?

And note, I am a developer too.

It's called packaging. Most customers are more comfortable and want to think that they're dealing with people rather than an "I" or a "me".

Okay, bye.

Lol. It better represents them professionally rathan 'I'. Besides, they might not have their company registered but they tend to see themselves as a business entity, rather than as individuals.

Now, see the kind mumu post that made it to front page. But i posted a very inspirational post about how to get your blog connected to adsense, it did not made it to front page. I sense some hormonal inbalance affecting those that moves posts to front page here.

Thats by the way, Just look at your statement "they clearly don't own a company... and only use wordpress." So do you mean that someone that uses wordpress cannot own a campany you must be very sick in the brain. They uses "we" bekos they know they are dreaming big becoming a company. And most contects and sections of a website demands the word "we" for it to sound mature.

Ewu!!! Just accept the fact that you dont know how to use wordpress. And if you want to learn wordpress, i teach you wordpress for N50,000
I have developed powerful websites with wordpress, ecommerce, forums, paid membership sites, social media sites, soccer live score sites.
Aturu, i have made upto 4million using wordpress in 2yres and my forum adsense is bringing nothing less than 200k every month and the earnings is increasing daily.

So, what have you achieved with your coding Nonsense!!!!!!!!1

Aboki, imagine grammar:
i just makes me laugh a lot. Mr sabi
