The Blog Crumb Trail

I am still relatively new to the technology world.

My children would probably say that I just know blogging.
Which is some extent (as that is even limited.)
As for other tech stuff.... 

I don't know how to play Wii,
I don't know how to use an ATM card,
And my phone still has a cord.  
(Well not the one that I put in my purse, but that one is very old.
It's latest and only feature is taking  blurry pictures.  I think it's memory can hold up to three max.)

So even though I "know" blogging, I don't.

I get lost.

Like Hansel and Gretal my blog crumbs are gone when I try to return.

Has that ever happened to you?!

I have been sitting at the computer for so long without getting up I would have a beard if I were a man,
(I guess my armpit hair is growing instead),
And I have come across some very interesting and amazing sites during that time.
The problem is, I don't know how I got to them.

Therefore, I am unable to return.

Small, shiny, 'bookmark' white stones don't work for me either.

So, I may end up at the cake and candy house.
(Which on many days wouldn't seem like such a bad idea as sugar and I are the best of friends),
Except for the cannibalistic witch who resides there.

It's true, she does end up charred (like my knight)
Which is all fine and dandy, but I am still left wandering in the forest of blogs.

So, more learning for me it is.

  1. You have company, my friend because I do know blogging a bit more than I do a few other things. I don't text very well at all. In fact, I feel sorry for the person that receives a text from me because they have to try to decipher it. Also, I don't get twitter that much. I'm still learning much about hashtags and all of that. Forget the Friday Follow....I am horrible at that.

    At least you're able to get around and inspire others by your blog.

  2. Well, the "follow" button is good, for starters. Then you can just go to your blogging dashboard and check up on the blogs you've followed. If you're really ambitious, you can add them to your blog page so we can ALL see them, but that may be pushing it. lol

  3. Choc- My children taught me how to text except that I do 'old school' where I spell out the whole word! (and according to them I take forever.)
    Twitter is another planet for me.
    Thank you for finding the bright side.
    You have a way of doing that!

  4. Rachel- Thanks for those tips.
    I am going to try them.
    I have found sites I like from others' blog page.
    That may be how I found you.
    Pushing is good if it is forward motion so I am going to see if I can figure that out.
    Thanks! You motivated me!

  5. Reyna, thanks for stopping by! I think even expert bloggers have yet much to learn because of the different blogging gadgets available now. Technology changes so fast that it’s kinda hard to keep up with the newest one :D

  6. Here's a possibility...when you are on a page (or website) you like, look in the toolbar (is that what you call it??) or in the place where you type in a website address when you know it. And write down what is in it. Then next time you want that blog, website, page, etc., type in the address that you copied down. Does that make sense?? I can do it better than explain it! :)

  7. I haven't figured out the bookmark thing yet either and I don't know Wii.

    Baby steps, you will keep getting better and better :)

  8. Thanks for all your encouragement!

    I am going to keep crawling forward.
    That's how I got this far.
    I didn't even used to know what a blog was!?

  9. I am going to remember and use the techno-dinosaur term. I like that!

    Yeah, I can get tired just thinking of all those pioneer women did.

  10. Techno-dino has evolved! Since 2010, when I made that unfortunate comment, I’ve grown to love using a cloud service to receive digital recordings, and using specialized software to transcribe them. While embracing the future, I still have respect for the past, and won’t shy away from transcribing from tape, but I really like using digital, knowing there’s no tape to jam up or tangle in my transcription equipment.
