Charlotte promises keep Wilbur from ending up as a holiday meal. She concentrates all her energy toward this one thing: saving Wilbur's life. Every web site has to have a clear cut purpose. Whether a site provides a specific message like "Terrific Pig" or a site's directory offers vast resources and information. Essentially you, web master, must own purpose with passionate determination. Spider webs provide entomological evidence that what you create lives from you and feeds you.
Wilbur worries (who can blame him). Web masters worry too. Charlotte gives Wilbur practical advice. "Get plenty of sleep, and stop worrying". Nothing wears down commitment more than worry. I've done it for months wondering if efforts made will produce results wanted. Daily checks of stats and Google Adsense & ClickBank revenue reviews wear you down if rewards accrue slowly. Charlotte knows better, she could wait "hour by hour...deep in thought". Finally, an idea (or a fly) would show up.
Charlotte's lessons pass on to generations of web weavers. Each of them understands one essential and inalterable lesson, "...we are going out into world to make webs for ourselves". I am not suggesting you reject or ignore skillful helpers; I am suggesting that decision of what your web represents remains yours. Always weave your own web.
