Well, I have been blogging now for about four months and I am as confused as ever about certain things like php somethings and plugins. While I have been known to be a complex person, I like to keep certain things simple. I guess one of the problems I am having is that my tech support (daughter) set up my blog which left me out of the loop and clueless. And, so I struggle whenever I want to do something that isn’t basic enough for me to grasp quickly.
For example, I would like to have a place on the right hand side of my blog that says something like “Get posts by email.” I’ve seen that on other blogs but for the life of me I can’t find out how to do that in my blog. I think it is one of the plugin things but God help me if I can figure out how to do it.
I wander around in the cyberspace of blogging feeling like an idiot that I can’t do simple things on one hand, while on the other hand I feel rather pleased that I can manage the basics of blogging at all. And while my blog people have page after page of instructions I can easily see that this could take me the rest of my life to read through it and, already being an old crone doesn’t give me all the time in the world.
Why not ask my tech support you ask? Well, because while she set up the basics of my blog she doesn’t know all the workings of things “bloggy” and so we just sit and stare at each other and hope for some divine inspiration that will give us the answer. Sigh. Maybe I’ll just have to go down to my local computer store and see what they know. Or, better yet, call one of my blogger friends and ask how they managed to do whatever it is that they do that I want to do and can’t!
