Good Morning my Prims...I hope this day finds you all having a Happy Friday!
Before I start please allow me to say I don't know if this blog is a cry for help in this technical world I live in or simply a rant!!
I decided to go blog hopping before I headed South and in reading every ones Blog I realized that I am just about one of the dumbest when it comes to understanding and changing things on my Blog.. I see all these beautiful back grounds and links posted on the side bars and I just sigh with frustration at how difficult for me it is to comprehend how all of it works. If I try to change somethings I totally mess up my blog..if I try to add something it never works. I'm clueless how to back up my blog..I join new blogs and try to update my blog list and it doesn't work. I tried to add a counter nope that didn't work either. And that is just a few things I've dabbled in trying...
Now I suppose I could blame all of this on my thyroid problem and the confusion and memory loss it has caused but I must be realistic here... I never could figure any of it out before my thyroid went on the blink...lol..so I must confess I am what you would call technically challenged...
Hand me a shelf, some sand paper, paint and walls filled with prim wares and I can Create the most beautifully Prim gathering around but send me to a help page and I'm ready to have a anxiety attack...None of it makes any sense to me at all... Part of it is that they tell you go to this or that place to change this or that and when you get there it tells you to do such and such and well ok exactly what is such and such.. One must know what such and such is before one can do such and such...so you click on the help link and you read that which take you to a new page so you can do this first before you can do that thing you started doing when you clicked the first link..and before I know it I am someplace I've never seen or knew about and I can't figure out how to get back to where I started... Are you seeing this picture I'm painting here...So I give up in total frustration... Thus you still see my blog page the same as it was the day I started Blogging!!
My great sense of humor allows me to laugh at my lack of computer, blog, Internet Savoy.... Thank God
BUTT I'm getting a little worried that I must learn quickly if I don't want to lose touch with all of you out there that put the Sunshine in my day with your Daily Blogs...
For starters I keep reading that Friend Connect is being phased out..... so many of you are telling your followers to follow you using some other link...Like Linkys, or Frog something..
How long do I have to figure out how to add a new follower link to my Blog before Friend Connect is gone?
So what happens to all of our followers and people we follow if Friend connect is phased out...do they just disappear?
Where do I find these links and how do I get them on my blog?
How do I get my followers to link to my blog using another link...once I figure out how to put the link on my blog?
Oppps I almost forgot how do I get that link on my Blog...?
Now me having the sense of humor that I have I can accept all the giggling from all of you who find this all so easy..but at the same time I know I'm surely not along in this never ending world of changing Technology.
It seems to me that I just learn to work all this stuff and they go and change it on me...
They do it on blog, on ebay, an Photobucket you name it.. I realize the people changing things need to work to make a living and they got enough brains and tech savoy to fill an old barn ...but don't they understand if it works just leave it alone so all of us can enjoy reading our Friends Blogs, commenting and writing our blogs so friends can comment...
But Noooooooooooo they have to go and make it difficult for the Technically challenged few of us out there!
So now that I have ranted, and given some of you a big giggle and of course found others who are as challenged as I am at figuring all of this out...... I was wondering if anyone out there among you understands how the creative minds works and knows how to teach an old dog new tricks so to speak...and can help me figure out some of these things... Remember sending me to a directions page with links to this and that doesn't work to well for me...but willing to try.
Ok I have ranted long enough and humbled myself more then I'd like...I guess its time to pack up the computer and my belongings and head South... got a two hour drive to make and darn it all it is raining.. uggg was hoping for sunshine again...Plenty of time to create gathering in my mind on the way home...
It was a nice break coming North for a couple days.. Picked up my meds at the doctors, got my boat taken care of, trimmed a few tree limbs, sat in the middle of the floor creating rag covered Eggs...63 total while I watched old movies and I stopped at several Thrift stores while I was up here and found a few nice things to use creating. so its time to head home...
Until we meet again may your day be filled with happy thoughts!!
PS and that cute little REPLY under each comment..what exactly does that link do? I clicked it and nothing happened. Am I supposed to write a reply in the whilte comment box click send & it shows a reply under the comment? or is it simply not working on my blog page.. I know I forgot to read the directions..Nope that isn't it I never seen any directions & don't have a clue where to find them there directions if there are any..but some of you know how it works cause I've seen reply's under comments.
