Blogging…I think I am getting the hang of this..

17 Jan


Pine Lake Misty Morning

At almost 50 years of age everything technical becomes a challenge.  We changed our TV service from cable TV to satellite TV and then from one satellite company to another.  With each change comes new instructions.  Yesterday I changed our cell phone service from one company to another and switched to different phones.  Now I have to learn how to use my new phone and teach my husband how to use his new phone which has more bells and whistles than mine.  I have taught myself how to text but I’m sure its not how all the younger people text but I can still do it.

A  couple of weeks ago I decided that I wanted to learn about blogging and maybe start my own.  WordPress has made it easy for me so far although I have nothing to compare it to because this is my first attempt.  Today I learned how to add things to my sidebar, add images and customize my Theme header with a picture that I took at Cape Cod a year ago.  There is so much more to learn but each day I try to find out about something I have no idea what it is and learn about it.  Today it was widgets.  I added a couple to my sidebar.  This is like learning a foreign language for me but its fun.  I enjoy reading the different blogs and looking at how each has individualized their site.

This was never a goal of mine for 2010 like getting my private pilot certificate but I can see how this maybe added to my list of things that I did in 2010 that I didn’t think I could do.  Sometimes we surprise ourselves with what we are capable of if we will just try something new.   Tomorrow I will tackle more vocabulary related to blogging that I’m not familiar so I can maybe add more to my blog.
