Technology woes, Just before Sunrise daily painting by Everglades artist Jo-Ann Sanborn
Just before Sunrise
acrylic on board, 5"x7"
Oh, for the peace of the sunrise, above! Ask me about acrylic painting, how to prime a canvas or ship a painting. Ask me about the Florida Landscape, the Everglades, or Marco Island. Ask me about arts and community. I'm comfortable with these subjects. But technology, no!
I've been very careful not to disturb my Blogger template much since those who try to personalize and change their blogs seem to have more difficulty than those like me who just let it be. The offer offer to insert photos wherever you wanted on the blog was just too tempting. If you included more than one photo on the old system, you had to load them backwards to get them to come out in the right place, so an offer to eliminate this difficulty sounded good. I went for it. I pushed one easy, tempting button on Blogger last week and wish I hadn't. I want the old way back!
UGH! Some of you had the words and photos blended in ways I never intended. Please accept my apologies if this happened to you! Everything is changed, and I can't seem to get a handle on how to fix it. The font isn't the same, the tool bar is revised and preview has changed. The cursor is jumping around unexpectedly and spell check is doing funny things.
I have a website, a blog, a Facebook page, and I Twitter. People seem to think I know something about the Internet, but the truth is that I skirt the tar-pit of technology with sticky feet, dangerously close to falling in. Keeping up with technology is not easy for me and I struggle, learning just enough to get by rather than embracing the future.
I purchased a mini-notebook this week, too, and a router. Bear with me, it's going to be a tough few days.
