I mention frequently this low cost service offered here called “Tech Help”.


But what IS tech help?


It really is as simple as it sounds. It is a time that I’ve set aside for walk in help and appointments for those that have tech questions. There is no such thing as a stupid question – you don’t know what you don’t know!


I’ve helped folks turn off their Facebook notifications and backup the photos from their phone to a cloud based storage system. I’ve also helped those with a more technical background learn how to use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator better.


Tech help is for anyone

  • that is tired of asking the kids, grandkids, or friends to help them with something “simple”
  • that has a smart phone that makes them feel not so smart and wants to know how to use it better
  • that has a tablet or phone and wants to learn how to use it better so it’s easier to stay in touch with friends and relatives
  • that needs a computer or laptop but has NO idea what they want or need and wants/needs no BS sales gimmicky recommendations

Tech Help is offered on a pay what you can or freewill donation basis. I firmly believe that folks should not be afraid or unable to ask for help because they can’t pay. A pay what you can exchange can also look like barter/trade. If you like to bake – I love me some ooey gooey brownies or homemade bread. Live on a homestead? Bring a dozen farm fresh eggs and we’ll call it good. Do you like to do yardwork? I need help maintaining the yard here at The Nook. Where there’s a will, there is a way. The recommended value/donation is $5 per 10 minutes of time/service. This suggested rate is still about 50% lower than the standard rate for this type of service.


Tech Help services are offered on a walk in basis every Sunday, 12:30 – 2:30 pm. Can’t make it on Sunday? There are limited appointments available from 1:00 – 2:00 pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. You can book an appointment by going to the BOOKINGS page.
