That’s me. I know that it may appear that I know what I’m doing here, but in all reality, I don’t. Sure, I can write these posts and they usually don’t sound too dumb, but as far as all of the “stuff” that goes on behind the scenes, I’m a big dummy. If I need any code inserted into my template, or my layout changed at all, my “IT guy” does it. By “IT guy”, I mean husband. I envy those bloggers who can both write, and are proficient in setting up everything on the back end.
I’m always the last to sign up for a new site or try a new program. I swear I think I was the last person in the world to sign up for Facebook. And what is this Google+ stuff??? I resisted getting my own domain because I was afraid to make the change, and I most likely will NEVER move to Wordpress. Just thinking about all that is involved gives me heart palpitations. My husband has been trying to get me to use the draft version of blogger forever now, but I have no time to learn how to use a new program. So instead I spend ridiculous amounts of time writing a post because I know how to do things the way I am used to, rather than making life easier for myself by trying a new way. I don't like change.
Brian recently had to re-install my computer due to the amount of garbage on it that was literally sucking the life out of it. Well the other night I sat down to work on a spreadsheet for an event I am collaborating with another blogger on, and I didn’t have Excel. I pretty much flipped out. How can I live without Excel? (Remember, I’m an accountant.) He tried explaining to me that I could use an online spreadsheet program to create my spreadsheet, and then even give that other blogger access to it, or print to PDF and send it to her. What? How is that even possible? Don’t I have to email her the spreadsheet?
I really didn’t want to try his “new age” way, but I didn’t have much of a choice. Sure enough, I created my spreadsheet online, and even gave my friend access to it. When I wanted to print out a hard copy, a PDF converter created a PDF document from the spreadsheet, and I simply hit print. I didn’t have to download it or anything. That wasn’t so bad after all.
Why did I need a hard copy? Well just because I tried something new, doesn’t mean I have to trust it yet! Baby steps, my friends.
