Happy Days

I haven’t posted in a while. But here I am, posting.

Yesterday, I set up a web page for my husband. I already had one on another host site and decided to move it to WordPress. They actually have a handy dandy way of doing that now. A click here, a click there and BAM!, it’s done. Then you just have to tweek a few things.

Well, the import was easy. For a person born in the fifties, that is 1950s, AKA, The Happy Days, I have somewhat of a grip on techie things. At least compared to some of my peers. But over the last six months I have noticed an incredible advancement in the cyber-space world.

Understand, I love advancing. I love the computer thing even though that was almost syfy in my youth. I do not speak the techie lingo but I was still able to figure things out. Until yesterday.

After two to three hours of googling and reading great info in another foreign language – at least to me it was foreign – I sought help from WordPress. After going through lists of possible solutions, which is difficult if you don’t speak computerese, I found a person to chat with.

I fell in love. I have no idea if this person was male or female but by the end of our time together I promised them a fresh pie if they ever came to my town. They not only walked me through the steps but they actually understood what I wanted to do and were able to tell me in my language. Geniuses! I can’t say enough about them.

I have told my husband many times to please learn how to do the basics. I tell some friends the same thing who want nothing to do with computer stuff. But, in all reality, it is not going away. Well, unless we lose all power and zombie creatures come and take over the world as we know it. Don’t be afraid. Really. It’s hard to us, but how can we even begin to speak into our grand children if we are closed to the world they live in. Let them teach you.

Don’t get old. Take it from this Grandma – you CAN do it!

Enjoy!

I’m a Techie

Is that a word, techie?  Spell check says there is so I guess I’m good.  I’m 61 years old and just love to do things on the computer.  By that I mean I absolutely enjoy creating  and finding how to do creative things with technology.  My school years were not spent on computers.  Any typing we did was on a typewriter that didn’t plug in and involved ribbons and stuck keys and a lot of noise.  In school we had electric typewriters.  They were huge machines that were pretty high tech for us.lady-on-computer-cartoon

 

Recently I started a web page for my husband and I.  Through the help of a friend I purchased a domain name and then went to a free web site page, www.weebly.com.  The themes aren’t very beautiful to me, but for a beginning it suffices.  Now I’m addicted.  I want to constantly work on it and I’m limited.  I want to learn codes but totally afraid and perhaps a bit too lazy to go that far.  But think of the possibilities…….

I may have to back off and crochet something instead…..
