I’m going to blog about my blogging journey (does that sound like I’m swearing?)
On deciding to enter the world of blogging, I have suddenly remembered that I am a technophobe. This doesn’t bode well for setting up a website and blogging. Facebook is about all I can manage and have managed since 2009. Before that … nothing! So typically me, I got very enthusiastic – told my husband, my children and my dog that I was going to be a blogger! Yeah, ok so it was straight away pointed out to me that blogging is sooooo yesterday and I should be vlogging. Well I don’t like the sound of my voice so blogging it is.
Step one complete, I moved onto step two – asking for blogging/website recommendations. A couple of strangers on the internet seemed happy with WordPress and more importantly, assured me it was easy. In my usual overenthusiastic style, I immediately signed up for it. The website took my money and gave me lots of helpful instructions. Well they would have been helpful, if I could have slowed my brain down, but suddenly I hit panic mode. I read half a sentence and then jumped onto the next paragraph. I read the first and last line of that paragraph but didn’t understand so I clicked on another link. Within minutes I’d read part of everything the site had to offer and understood nothing. Luckily, I remembered I hadn’t had a cup of coffee for several hours, or for at least half an hour so I shut down the computer and made myself a cuppa. I’ll have another look at WordPress later. When I’m calm…
The irony is I can’t post this, my very first blog, because I don’t know how to ☹
Psst … has it worked?
