After college, I got my first AOL account and started using EMAIL! I felt really cool. But not long after that, I kind of lost touch with my techno-side. I was having far too much fun being a footloose twenty something year old to veg out in front of the computer. And I did not need it for work, so I did not drive on the Information Superhighway and kind of missed that boat for a while. A year or two later, I taught computer skills to middle schoolers, so I did figure out Yahoo! and URLs. But that was the extent of it. Eventually, I started to use the Internet, email and worked on a computer more regularly. But I have always felt a step or two behind my savvy contemporaries.
So here I am, writing a blog, and I see that I have a lot to learn. I look longingly at some of my favorite mommy blogs, and see graphics, and cool logos, all kinds of banners and buttons. I realize that I really have no idea what I am doing. But as a dedicated student of the Art of Blog now, I am learning that all those neat things you click on are called Widgets. Great name, I think. Or are they Gadgets? Whatever. I promise I will figure it out.
I added the Followers widget over there on your left, so that you can click the Follow icon, and become part of a (very few) elite who actually like to read what I write
