A Burp in Cyber World

O.k.  I'm a little put out.  I don't have internet at my house and planned to use my fancy phone (that I just got) to tether to my netbook (that I just got).  It worked wonderfully several times but now it isn't.  I need to figure all this out.  I've taken several pictures to use in upcoming posts and am anxious to really get this off the ground.  Just frustrated.

Wish me luck - I'm going to play around with all this tonight!!

P.S.  What gets your panties in a twist?  Please share!!!

What's It All About?

I bought a book on blogging.  Oh man, this is going to be interesting and fun.  It mentions things like who is your audience?  What will be your topic?  How to draw readers to your blog (and have them keep coming back). What type of posts do you want to write?  I have a HUGE learning curve here.  There are all these terms like gadget (something I use in the kitchen?), hashtab, labels (kinda know what that's about).   I'm at that age where I need to read a few things twice, maybe three times so this may be slow going for a while.

I don't even know how to download photos yet -- but I do have a nice camera and will be working on that over the weekend.

Ideas keeping me up at night

I've been enjoying getting glimpses of other people's lives (yes, voyeurism on the web) for years now.  My life has been enriched and I've been inspired - to be more artistic, try new things, pray to God, watch over those that can't watch over themselves, and be a better person.  Even to strangers.  To live a life that I can be proud of.  To bring that smile to someone having a hard day.  That is what is inspiring me, right now -- all the wonderful bloggers that I've come to know.
