I am intentionally leaving this title as “First blog post”, because it is my very first post and I am totally making this shit up as I go. If I was to change the title, it would probably end up being… “You prolly ought not have done that”. But what the hell?
People are always telling me that I should start a blog.
The first problem is these people all know different sides of me. Some know me as Mom. Some know me as someone with Multiple Sclerosis. Many people just think I am crazy, which after looking up the definition at http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term , I am ok with, in both cases. The second problem is that I have so much to say, so many things running through my hurricane of a brain, that I can’t pick just one topic. I know a lot about several things, but wouldn’t claim to be a master at any of them. I’m not sure where this blog or webpage adventure will take me, but since I know nothing about either, I am sure it will be an adventure!
The way I did it (not necessarily the recommended way to do things.) I thought and thought and thought and did nothing. (not very productive). Then I realized my to do list was getting longer and longer and decided to just “jump into it” (hence the skydiving picture) or it would never get done. It shouldn’t be scarier than that right? Besides, you need to learn to walk before you run.
As I was heading to the computer to sign up at wordpress, I tripped over the air spilling coffee all over myself thinking “ Not very graceful there” , and decided on the name I would use to blog. Graceful…..Not!
How do I upload my skydiving picture? After all I did just jump into this. Over the next couple of hours, yes HOURS, I finally figured out how to upload the picture to my computer, and publish it along with some other random stuff I shouldn’t have posted. Oh well, live and learn. AFTER doing all of this, I decided to share this baby accomplishment with my best friend. I called him on skype (video chat), so I could share my screen with him and see the webpage from his screen. (yes I do know there would have been easier ways of doing this, but it would not have been as much fun) After playing with all the buttons, starting to explore themes, and laughing for another two hours…. This post is what I have to show for it. Kind of like my parents went to……….and all I got was this lousy tshirt.
