Teaching an old dog new tricks!

A few weeks ago, or even a month plus I wrote about learning to blog. I have been taking a blog writing course, in my spare time.... insert maniacal laughter here since spare time is a rare thing for me! After spending a couple of days feeling like I should pull my hair out, wanting to cry, throw my computer across the room and decide that I have no brain cells to spare for something like this...... I pulled myself up by the bootstraps and am slowly but surely figuring it out.
I mean, WTH is a widget and where do I put it and WHY? I am an educated woman. I run my own business, I made my own business website, I homeschool my boys(one would be considered homeschooling special needs with his ADHD) and yet I am letting something like a widget take me down.
Not today, not ever!
You see, as I am learning to write a blog... I am also learning how to set up my blog site. At one point I was pretty sure it was a bunch of symbols, numbers and letters that only a Native American Code Breaker would understand because I sure as heck didn’t! In fact I sent several emails to the site teacher telling her this was suicide! I had no business doing this.
But, several deep breathes later..... inserting and uninserting stuff, checking out my homepage and just sheer practice has led me to believe that I can do it. I can be a viable person on the 21st century and I can hold my own in a conversation about blog writing!

Not to toot my own horn or pat myself on the back.... but I have learned that you can teach an old dog new tricks!LOL
Stay tuned for the next adventure in my blog writing saga.....
