What I learned today

My netbook

Blogging has been good for me. I’m sort of a medium computer savvy person, meaning, I can work my way around the standard Microsoft Office programs, and over the years, I’ve picked up a lot of knowledge the old fashioned way: trial and error. Even with the occasional formal class, I’ve learned a lot on my own. I know how to search for answers from online help, and I can frequently find the solution I need when I run into a problem. So I’m not highly knowledgeable in a technical sense, but I’m not bad either.

But with blogging, I’m learning new skills. The program I’m using makes it pretty simple. You can do a lot with a click of a button. But there are tips and tricks that I’m slowly working through. Today I learned to link another page using live text…you know, when you see a word “here” and you click to another page. I learned to do that for my blog. I’ve known how to link other sites or blogs, but this was a new little learning. I love the small victories!

The best part? You can look wonderfully professional (sometimes!) with all the tools that come with the blogging program. Confession: I’m just an at-home amateur. But it’s fun, it’s creative, it’s challenging, and who knows where it will lead?

Yay for the digital world!
