Review of the website askagonyaunt.com by Carmel Brulez, retired professional agony aunt
Everything you need to know about askagonyaunt.com
I worked as a full-time professional, self employed agony aunt for many years. During that time I came across a lot of people who claimed to be agony aunts but were not up to it, and were either in it for the money or their ego.The first thing you need when you go to a web site for advice is someone running it who is properly qualified and has a good reputation. With this site, ask agony aunt, you get that.
It was interesting to note that Charlotte Craig actually bothers to do a site, ask agony aunt, when she has been working for many years and could easily retire. Really the amount of money she gets from ask agony aunt is not worth it for her if she is taking it seriously financially, so she must be doing ask agony aunt because she wants to help even more people than she already has.
The home page at ask agony aunt is well laid out and gives you the opportunity to join, for free, to gain various advantages to non members, who can also use the ask agony aunt site ask agony aunt.
You can consult Charlotte Craig personally, something I think a lot of people would take for granted, as most agony aunts employ others to do their mail! This lady does not get staff to do all of her work even though she is more qualified and more experienced. Please note that all other sites employ people who are less qualified than Charlotte Craig and pass on their work. This ask agony aunt is the only site online at the moment where you can personally consult a well known and highly qualified agony aunt. Charlotte Craig has over 30 years of experience. You will see on the ask agony aunt site that Charlotte Craig has written for newspapers and had famous clients.
You can read other peoples' problems and reply to them on the ask agony aunt site, read articles, go to the forum at ask agony aunt and post and read and make friends or chat in the chat room.
You can also buy cheap but very helpful booklets written by this experienced and famous agony aunt, depending on what your problem is.
I think a good touch is that it is possible to end up working as a paid agony aunt for Charlotte Craig on the ask agony aunt site.
Ask agony aunt is the best agony aunt site online at the moment, I doubt you will ever get a better one as there are no others out there with more qualifications or experience, and the few who might be as qualified and experienced as Charlotte Craig are either retired or they get others to do their work and just head the organisation. Remember too that well qualified and experienced agony aunts would usually charge a lot more than Charlotte Craig charges on her ask agony aunt site.
Askagonyaunt.com will be popular with anyone who has problems, likes to give advice, likes to make friends and likes to learn.
So why am I bothering to tell you all this now that I am retired? Simple. Although I have been retired for over twelve years I still get a lot of people contacting my office asking me to deal with their problems or pass them onto a suitable agony aunt I can recommend. I used to tell them I was sorry but I could not help. Then I decided to look at all of the websites online and find out which one I can safely recommend. This took a long time and a lot of dedication. But I preferred to do that rather than telling people I cannot help.
Having poured over the many sites online and compared them, including ask agony aunt, I found that a lot of them were housewives or disabled people who set it up because their lives are boring, or because they are lonely. Others are set up by people with no qualifications or skills or proper work experience who want to make some money quickly and easily and cannot think of any other way to do it. I am very wary of the very young ones who set up sites and claim to be all knowing. At least with someone like Charlotte Craig and ask agony aunt you know she has been around a bit and has experience of life and she is not doing it because she is short of money. A site like ask agony aunt is not set up to make money. The woman already made her money years ago. And if money was the main thing she would charge higher prices on the ask agony aunt site. She could easily charge a lot more and still get a lot of customers.
To give you an idea of how incompetent a lot of so called agony aunts are that have no proper reputation or qualifications, I get an average of ten every week writing emails to me asking me for advice on how to become a paid agony aunt. They tell me they are very clever and know all the answers and would be great at it, but need someone like me to get them on the road to start with. Why? If they are that good they would not need any advice or help! Nobody ever gave me any advice or help, I worked it out for myself. And I am sure that Charlotte Craig never got advice about ask agony aunt or any of her other work.
I recently set up a dog clothes business, which pays me very badly but it is a lot of fun. So you can see that I really have turned my back on the agony aunt world. I am sure that it will not be that long before Charlotte Craig resigns and closes down ask agony aunt, as she is not a young woman. But I hope that then she will continue to run the ask agony aunt site in some way, so that the site is still available, perhaps just putting in a few hours monitoring who does the work. In the meantime you can be sure that Charlotte Craig, the famous, highly qualified agony aunt is available personally through ask agony aunt.
