I need a new computer. This one is too old, too slow and just doesn't support all the things I need it to support. Even just to do the simple things I want to do!
I'm trying to download the new version of FlashPlayer and can not make it work.
I know that I need to just stop and try again tomorrow, but I want it now!
On the happy side of my world, the yarn that I ordered for my latest project and to finish a afghan arrived today while I was at work. That is a really good thing. I should just shut the computer down and play with yarn. I feel calmer just thinking about it!
All right I'm off to start a new project and chill. The BLEEP computers just going to have to wait!
Happy Crocheting Al
So I've changed my theme and I'm liking this. I think it's pretty! I'm getting the hang of adding new items and linking things together. I guess that all this set up stuff is the hard part and once I have some content it'll be more about keeping things current and adding new projects. I'm also thinking about adding a Food tab for recipes and such. Since I am a lover of food and figure since we must eat, we should eat well! I still feel a bit narcasistic (sp?) what with it being all me me me, but I'm sure that to will pass. I'm kind of groovin on having my own little piece of the web. Pretty cool.
I'm going to "publish" this new version now and see how looks without all of the editor tools. I found this hosting site (is that what it's called?) Weebly.com after googling how to create a blog. I looked at others, but this one seemed clean and easy. So far we're having a good relationship, I hope it continues. I'd like to upgrade to the "Pro" version as soon as we get a new computer. But for now this is good. Still much to learn. It's all about the trip though and I have to remind myself to chill and just enjoy all of the neat stuff that I'm doing every day.
Still searching for that exit line, so for now that's all 'till next time!
I have very little experience in this world of personal websites and I beginning to feel that if I'm not attentive to my original concept this could easily become way to much "look at me!". That's not what I'm after. I know in this building phase I have to put a lot of me out there, I just need to remind myself not to get carried away. I've been thinking about the layout and I have a fair idea of what I'd like to have things look like regarding the project and book pages. I've also been brainstorming ideas for blog posts that actually contain information that others will find useful and entertaining. Who wants to just read my blah blah ramblings? No one! And so as I come to the end of another day, I've made progress by adding a few books (and that brainstorming session) and that feels good. Now if I can only figure out how to spell check these posts and the other site info I'll feel much better. It seems ridiculus (sp?) that something created on a computer would go of into the world with mis-spelled worlds. What would my 8th grade English teacher think! I also need to come up with an appropriate way to close my posts. Sincerely, Robin isn't right. Chow? NO. Ta ta for now? I love tigger but really? No. So with nothing more for this evening I'll try, That's all folks! (No that's not it either!)
I am amazed at the amount of time that goes by as I sit in front of this crazy little contraption and try to get the image that I'd like to represent me and present to the world just right. Incredible! I can easily see how this can become and obsession. An addiction even. Now I'm not one for facebook. It's just not my thing. But I think that I understand (a little more) how people can spend just so much time there. So I must practice my self-control, give myself some limits and try not to become one of those crazy, compulsive folks who seem to be living some sort of cyber life! I'm enjoying this new type of creativity, but I don't want it to take over and stop me from doing the things I need to and the other things I enjoy.
Truly this is an adventure for my middle age mind. I thought how hard can it be to create blog? What do I want to say and who do I want to say it to? Well I've discovered that the creation part isn't that hard, but now that I'm here I'm not sure what I want to say or really who I'm talking to. As with everything in my life that has been successful I'll just go in faith and have confidence that if this is meant to be a successful adventure it will be! So the purpose of this bolg I suspose is to share my love of crochet, the pleasure it gives me and how it has become such a hugh part of my life.
And so we begin!
