So, here I am, on my fourth day as a newbie blogger and I am already confused with how to do this and that. Unlike adopting, which took four years from the initial phone call for information to the arrival of my daughter, WordPress took less than an hour to sign up and have my blog ready to go.
I admit the thought of getting a blog going has been with me for about a year. I was going to take a class and learn first, but when I saw a friend of mine had one, and she said “just sign up and go” I thought, well why not. It can’t be that difficult.
I did do some research beforehand, and knew it really wouldn’t be that easy …. There would be a learning curve …. But now I know why children do not come with instruction manuals….because if they did we probably wouldn’t have them – or adopt them …. We’d be a bit put off by all the work laid out before us!
Now I am an intelligent person and have managed to do many things in my years. I am sure I will figure this out eventually. And I will look for a class in my area.
So until then my little blog will hobble along, without fancy graphics or pictures or tags, links to Facebook, tumblr, or Pinterest ….
It may not be pretty, but it will be honest. So for now, I’ll take a deep breath and be present in the moment, not the worry.
