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.
