Without readers there are no writers!
It’s been three years since I started this blog. Holy cow!
Blogging has been good to me in unforeseen ways.
I learned how to operate my camera AND download (or is it upload?) photos. I found out fast that finding photos online was a crapshoot. The best ones have a watermark that’s distracting. It’s easier to snap your own even if they are crooked and out of focus.
Now that I know how to use my camera, I had to learn how to use Photoshop to crop and brighten the dark blurry shadows I photograph.
That led to all sorts of things….mostly my friends and family running away every time they see me with a camera. (Sometimes just when they see me!)
“Don’t take my picture!”
“You’re not going to blog about this are you?”
“Silly, of course I am” which is way better than the alternative “You’re much too boring to blog about.”
I have been told that I disguise identities. Of course I do. Otherwise my house would have been firebombed long ago. (My cousin Guido is a nut job.)
Word Press changes things about the time I understand how it works. I hate that new “Beep, Beep, Boop” screen. It freezes my computer and takes longer to download the “post new” screen. It’s easier (and faster) to create from the Dashboard page now. (Sorry for you non-bloggers, don’t even try to figure this out!)
My computer is on the verge of death. It wore out. We have a symbiotic relationship and it’s just exhausted. (It doesn’t like to boogey all night!) It’s pulling the “old age card” on me.
You know what that means. I will upgrade to Windows 8.something and Office 13. I will spend days trying to figure out the simplest tasks. It will crash. I will swear (nicely of course). I’m so excited I can hardly wait! (Better wear my Depends!)
Aside from all that, I am most grateful to you who have taken the time to read my humble blog. Without readers all this is drivel and doodles. Thanks for making it legit!
As Charlton Heston said, “You can have my keyboard, when you pry it from my cold dead fingers! (He did say that, didn’t he? I’m pretty sure that’s what he really meant!)
