I am technically challenged. It's embarrassing in today's world of internet and high-speed everything. I shy away from fancy phones because I can't for the life of me remember how to use all the functions on my basic model. I never learned how to type and my personal method of creating digital text is probably quite entertaining to a keyboard master. I marginally know how to create a document in Word and can only navigate the internet successfully because of my friend Google and my patient husband who constantly is fixing the many computer emergencies I create. Everyime I get one of those catologs from the local community colleges touting their wares in adult classes I promise myself that I will do my family a favor and sign up for one of those "computers for dummies classes," but like most things in my life it gets put on that eternal list of things I'm going to do..........probably in another life.
I have only recently heard about this thing called a "blog." Little did I know that many of my close friends were involved in this modern day phenomenon. Of course, I swore I would never do this for two reasons- one I couldn't imagine coming up with the free time to write anything and two, I assumed it would be technically way over my head- and trying to figure the process out would just embarrass me further.
But, here I am writing my first post- and it is true what my friends say- the blogging people- (whoever they are), have made it very easy for the computer dummies like me to participate.
If nothing else- this should be a good spot for all my family to check in and see what we're up to way out here in the frigid east. And if they never check- in, well it will just be a spot for me to vent about daily life and of course to post pictures of my latest pair of fancy pants!
