My Never-Ending Battle with Technology
From the very beginning, me and technology have never gotten along. I would even go as far as saying that we are sworn enemies.
See, my computer battles date back to the days when Windows 3.1 and 95 powered our computers. The first time I wanted to fight with a computer was in 1999 when an entire 20 page marketing project disappeared when a stubborn computer decided to turn off – I mean, how was I suppose to predict such a tragedy and save the paper? Luckily, I got an extension from a sympathetic professor and learned a valuable lesson to click the save button next time.
And don’t even get me started about software programs. Yes, I can take pretty decent pictures which some may consider as awesome, but in all honesty, technology is my downfall. Some people ask me what program I use to edit my pictures which tends to bring laughter from my husband – Constance using some type of photo-shop program does indeed have a funny ring to it!! It is a sad day when you admit that you actually have to Google the program’s name to find out what purpose it serves.
And don’t get me started with my battles of using a computer. What I spend hours trying to figure out and solve, my husband can complete with two clicks of the mouse. And that leaves me wondering – why I am so technologically challenged? Why can’t I be cool and computer savvy?
I am Indeed a Blogger
I may not be the smartest person when it comes to computers and apps and technology but one thing is for certain – I am indeed a blogger. I love how the words just flow out of me, I love how I can string sentences together, and I love how I have the ability to sit down, start writing, and develop an idea.
Am I the best blogger ever? No. Will I ever be? Probably not. But I blog for a reason – to share my thoughts and ideas and opinions about the places I have been and about my life in general.
Sometimes I feel rather accomplished when I blog my heart out about something. I feel great when I click the ‘publish’ button and get my ideas out there for the world to read and see. Believe it or not, I was once actually a rather private person but Taiwan changed that (more on that in next Friday’s post) and that makes it easier for me to blog my little heart out!!
Say What? – Foreign Sanctuary has Moved
I came to the realization that I am indeed a blogger and in celebration of this major feat, I decided to make it official by giving Foreign Sanctuary a proper place in the blogosphere.
And you can imagine what a big step it actually was to buy and pay for a domain name today! My husband helped out (I wouldn’t dare do it all by myself and who could blame me given my computer track record?) I pressed the enter button and ta-da – Foreign Sanctuary has its own domain.
Yes, Foreign Sanctuary has move up in the world!! It’s the beginning of great things and with my husband and his computer expertise behind me, maybe it will become something better, something more amazing!
