This is book no:7, but it is now my ”go to” book. I am intelligent, I use a computer every day, so when I decided to blog I thought ”this will be a piece of cake” I like writing, I can vent online, express my opinions share experiences and photos and if people read and enjoy it then great, but if nobody reads it I will still continue as part of a therapy for myself and it’s a lot better than talking to the wall.
So you can imagine my dismay when I start off my blog, delighted with life and taking notes of all the topics I want to discuss only to find that there is A LOT of things I don’t know, blog language was foreign to me. At this point I must say I was chatting with Word Press support a lot , I am sure at one point the person ”helping’ me was thinking OMG this woman is a complete dummy, it’s not that the explanation was no good it was that I didn’t understand the terminology so I was getting more and more confused, and I really didn’t want to say that I had no idea at all what the hell I was being told to do. So, I followed the step by step instructions from the Word Press tutorials but still didn’t know what the hell a ”widget’ ‘side bar’ was. I posted blogs and was thrilled to see people not only read them but liked them too. I had to get better , I muddled on with my tutorials and figured out about but I was still in ‘foggy land’.
Then my daughter gave my this wonderful book , I’m sure as much for her benefit as it was mine. By this point not only was I going crazy with frustration but everyone around me too. Now I have a another point of reference. I buried myself in the book and with Word Press tutorials I am slowly getting the jist of all this lingo and I am sure in the coming weeks my blog will just get better and better.
If you have any advice or help it will be greatly appreciated.
