I always thought of myself as a bright person, lol - really I did - and pretty good with a computer - until I started blogging. This thing confuses the shit out of me sometimes -

I am fine now with writing my little piece and uploading my photos - but Picasa leaves me feeling like an idiot and now this:  Pinterest?  I am trying but there again I have problems.  Everyone rants and raves about it and I cannot seem to navigate properly around it.
Then I had no idea what a NO REPLY BLOGGER was - I kept reading posts on it and wondering what it was,  I even had first hand experience with this because I would sometimes get emails from people ( Rebecca if you are reading this - you are a no reply blogger btw ) and not be able to respond to them and still never made the connection.  I would leave comments on peoples blogs and not get responses and I would think
" Okay, this is tough, breaking into these these circles " until Vicky from DECOR and AMP let me know that she could not reply to my comments and told me how to fix it.
It took me far too long to learn how to link up to parties, I won't even get into that one.
The grab a button feature?  fuggedaboudit.
When I am writing a post and mention a previous post I have no idea how to place a link ( you know, when it says "here" )
Now here is the extremely embarrassing part.  I was looking at my profile the other day- and it says I follow 2 blogs - Mr. Goodwill Hunting and myself - why myself I have no idea - but where is everyone else that I added to my blog list?  They show up on my home page so I assumed because I added them to that list, that I was a follower of their blogs!!!!!!!!
Someone mentioned once that I should switch to WORD PRESS - the thought of it terrifies me - it took me so long to learn the little bit I know here.
So tonight I will actually go to my favorite blog sites and hook up to follow them properly.  Wish me luck everyone, if  you see me pop up please let me know it worked.

BTW - I am going with number 5 on the dictionary description above, lol

and both window panes now officially have the french panels in them ( this is where it would help to 
place the link to the previous post %$&^*  here 
agghhh - I think I did it - I linked to a previous post - oh you're a genius Suzan.

I still have to paint them black - but at least they are done!!!



  1. Suzan, this is laugh out loud hilarious! The learning curve is steep when it comes to blogging. I know I still run into stuff every week that makes me feel "stupid from fatigue" too!

  2. Suzan you have been my comic relief today :) too funny. I'm glad to see that you're following are cracking me up. I will send you an email about your issues.

  3. LOL, this is a funny post! Yes, I know what you mean about navigating around this blogging thing, I must confess, I'm not that great at it myself. Still a lot to learn.

  4. Your Too funny.. I get away with just nodding and smiling when people talk about social media. I then go home and waste 6 hrs trying to figure it out. The cats outta the bag now!!!!


Due to a large amount of spam ( that I'm tired of going back to posts and deleting ) I'll be using comment moderation from now on !!!
Can I beat these spammers at their own game? Probably not - but I'm going
to try my damnedest !!!
