A little behind the times...

So I just discovered the "Follower" gadget today. (I added it over yonder on my sidebar if anyone should feel so inclined to add me to your list. I will be sure to return the favor!) And a couple days before that, I figured out that I was using the "old" blogger editor instead of the "updated" editor with all the bells and whistles - centering,  colors, fonts, and  strikethrough! I've always wondered how to do that.  I've been doing this blogging thing for a year and a half, you'd think I would have figured all this stuff out already.  Slowly but surely...kinda like when I send someone a text message. (sigh) Have I ever mentioned that I am the slowest "texter" in the entire world?

Seriously.

So if you've wondered why you've never seen me pop up under your "followers", please know it isn't because you haven't won me over, but rather because I've been a little technologically impaired.

Now if only I could figure out how to add my own personalized signature...

Yet another blogging mystery to be solved.

*FYI - To change your editor, if you haven't already, go to your dashboard, click Settings, then Basic, scroll down a bit and you'll see the post editor options. Easy peasy.

I am the same way. I find one way of doing things and that is the way I stay. I don't like to bother learning new things.
You've been blogging busy. I need to catch up on all your posts. My brother is in town and I am staying busy with them. I love visitors. It's hard (as you know) being so far away from family.

There are several blogging help sites out there. Bloggingbasics101.com is probably the most well-known.

Okay so I think that I too am using the old blogger or something. How do you know? See it is not just you. I am so not with it. I am going to check out that Blogging Basics site. Yikes, just when I was getting good at what I am doing they go and change things!

Don't feel too bad, I had to show my mom the new and improved Blogger thing too. Mine just came with it, but I think it's becuase I didn't create it all that long ago.
My mom (Kaye at The Road Goes Ever Ever On) has showed me tons of nifty things that you can do. She has a button at the bottom of her page that links to a blog called Sneaky Momma. It has a daisy on the button. She is the Queen of bloggy tips. If you want to know how to do it she has a post about it. Check it out if you have a few minutes one day!
Oh, and Thank You So much for all your wonderful comments on my page. But trust me, I am so far from superwoman its ridculous!
Thanks for coming to visit today, and sorry about the book. I should have just sent you an email huh! ;)
