Fan of Blogging - Meyer

Hi everyone!

After many years of waiting to get a "round tuit" this is the day! I am going to start my own blog.

It does help considerably that I am now on high-speed Internet. Working with a speed of 53 kb/second was a bit tedious to say the least. Loading up pictures could quite literally take hours.

I still live way up north (850 km north of Winnipeg, MB) but we finally broke down and got a satellite dish affixed to the side of our house.

So the gal who would much much prefer to be writing with pen and paper in a cabin in the bush with a wood stove and kerosene lamps is finally and completely gone high-tech. It's been a long journey. My husband had to practically pry my old typewriter from high school out of my hands and into our yard sale when we moved. I was being hired to be a newspaper editor so buying my own computer seemed almost like a necessity, even to my frugal mind.

When it became absolutely necessary for me to go on the Internet, my long-suffering son showed me more than once (actually a few more times than once!) to send my first email.
Now I google, tweet, facebook, post, link in, upload, download, tag and even, on occasion, poke (although that still seems a bit rude to me).

For those of you who are still waiting for your own "round tuit" do not delay a moment longer. It's easy really. Just go to Sign in, using any google account you have (like gmail) or start a google account if you don't have one. Then choose a name, choose a template and start blogging!

Dorene, I haven't checked out your blog yet, but plan to do so.
Your pluck is inspiring, and it's great to see that you've found your "round tuit" and taken a deep and promising plunge into the area of promo and networking. You've left me on the riverbank with my big toe barely in the water! :)

Hi Dorene, I'm learning so much from many friends and my son also got me to us a computer- the first one died on me- but now I've got it on the right direction but it is still a learning daily experience for me. Doris-Lee McKay
