The older I get, the more I realize that there is so much that I don't know. There are a million (gazillion) different internet processes and applications that I am totally unaware of. Blogging is a "whole new world" (thanks Aladdin) and I am just scraping the surface.
Most of the time surface scraping is all that I need. I started out thinking that nobody would be interested in what I write about, only to find a growing group of wonderful women who are facing life full on in so many ways and encouraging each other (and me) on the journey.
It's been just over six months since I started, I've bought my .com name and managed to get it to link over from my blogger platform - I still find blogger is fine for what I need and swapping to anything else is just too big for me for now. I've done a little bit of HTML coding (thanks to all those people who know how to make things work). I am the Guru of Googling (is that title taken yet? I might need to google it....) when it comes to needing quick fixes for the little extras I need for my blog.
Despite all the things that my little midlife brain has learnt in the past months (like drag and drop on Google images - who knew?), I am aware that there is so much more to discover. I have no desire to be a super blogger, or to make money, or to turn my blog into something for others but not for me. I want to stay doing what I'm doing, but I'd like to think that I am doing it in a way that works well and I'm using the tools that are available.
On that note, as I was cruising around Pinterest (as I am wont to do on a regular basis) I saw a pin for a blogging challenge that looked like it would be really interesting. It was created by Daniela Uslan and was called the 15 Day Makeover Challenge and I figured 15 minutes a day was a manageable amount of time. When I actually went and had a look at the link, I was most impressed to see that it doesn't start until 22nd June (I'd found it before it was a thing of the past) and it didn't cost anything (a big bonus for me) and I could do as much or as little of it as I liked (even better!) Anyway......it seems like a really interesting challenge, so this post is for any of my blogging buddies who might like to jump on board and see where Daniela takes us - it sounds like it might be fun.
