Tweeting for the Technologically Impaired

Ok, I admit it, I'm not a technologically talented person. I'm not a fan of gadgets, widgets, code or pretty much anything that requires me to speak computer. It's not my thing. I like old fashioned books and handwritten letters that come in the mail. I make my daughter use pencils and write in notebooks. I use pencils and write in notebooks. I do love email and I even learned to use Facebook last year (yes, last year). But that's where my technology evolution stopped. It's who I am...a throwback to the the pre-tweet age.

But, yesterday, I took a brave, bold belly flop into the techno pool. Yes it hurt, yes I'm paying for the long night and lack of sleep today, but I think I have earned my social media merit badge.

Perhaps you have noticed the changes (again) to the look of the blog. Like it? You may also have noticed that you can now follow me on Twitter or Facebook...or both if you're a little obsessed (which I appreciate). Because the blog now has both a Twitter page and a Facebook page. And I did it all by myself. No help from the computer genius I married. I edited code (ok, I did a cut and paste job, but it still counts), moved gadgets, created pages, uploaded pictures...all by my technology-phobic self. Gotta say, I'm pretty feeling pretty darn proud.

Unless I manage to burn down the internet with a misplaced forward slash. In which case...it was totally my husband's fault.

  1. I Just LOVE the name of your blog! I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE chocolate! LOL Thanks for stopping by and joining in on the Hip Homeschool Hop! I am also tech-challenged and rely a lot on my hubby for help. However, I have been doing a little bit more by myself. Amazing what is possible! Blessings!

  2. I came across your site through the homeschool hop and thought I would share a creative writing site for kids (and adults) that I have just set up - come and see the "I Wonder Chronicles for literacy and creativity" - use the prompts and add to the wonder!
