MY FIRST ADVENTURE IN BEGINNING BLOGGING, again.

Okay… I’ve decided to blog…AGAIN. Some of you might remember past fiascos… With any luck, this one will finally be able to stick. Apparently, once I add the information into the little boxes in my WORD program; all I have to do is press ‘publish’ and viola! You get the new updated thoughts roaming around inside my head that manage to creep their way to the front, and down through my fingers to the keyboard. 

To faithful followers of my past blogs I sincerely apologise. It was my lack of computer knowledge that disappointed you, not my lack of enthusiasm. I simply COULD NOT find my way back to the spot where I started. I STILL don’t know the way. So, we try again. If you see nothing for a few days… call the paramedics. 

Now, to start, and because of losing my way so often, just in case the promised connections fail yet again, this first blog is: 

MY FIRST ADVENTURE IN BEGINNING BLOGGING, again. (This page) 

I GOOGLED “blog”. Up came the lists. I knew a few from recent encounters. I checked out the offerings. I THINK WordPress is going to be my saviour. In addition, yours, if you enjoy my inane ramblings… *smile*. 

This is how I got from, “Okay, I’m gunna try again!” to “Oh, my gosh! It worked!” 

I started at ‘Wordpress’. Off to the left-side of the screen is, well, if everything works right, you should see a photo of what I saw. The logo and stuff. I clicked the Learn more link, and was transported to a page (Features– beautifully laid out) describing the experience I could hope for. Or that I could deliver to you

I really would have liked to show you the photos I painstakingly took and cropped and added arrows to; but apparently they’re only available on some weird and wonderful planet that after you sign-up, no longer exists. (That issue with getting lost again.) 

After drooling over the features that I might be able to figure out, I made my choice. Yes, WordPress is where I want to launch myself, because I feel that, if I can’t succeed to find my way back here, I am going to give up. So, here we are. Sort of. 

Obviously, I’ve had to do a lot more. Choose a ‘theme’; pick widgets (still luv that name); choose fonts and sizes and colour and…sign-up! Can I prove I can find my way back? We’ll save ‘DID I FIND MY WAY BACK?’ for my second blog, where I’ll let you know, how I chose what I did and why. (If it shows up, we’ll know all’s well in polyglot-land for another night…) (OH, errr… where’s the exit…? I wanna go home…)

You can let me know your thoughts or insights below in the little comment thingh-y. I’m expecting a rocky start…but, rocks ARE solid… Learn with me as I build the stepping-stones to blogging; who knows? I might say something useful! (And, if nothing else, I’ll have a roadmap I can follow.) (OR NOT, apparently…) Still, as long as the posts work through my programme, I’ll be back… if not… I’m lost again and have given up… Check the ocean for a bottle; my last post will be curled inside.)

*hugs*

luv khrys…
