Tweak, Tweak

You are probably wondering what I mean by the title of this post.  I am hoping to be tweaking my blog a bit in the upcoming weeks.  Back in my day (mid 80s), we didn't learn about computers in high school.  I had typing class on a typewriter! Gasp!  They started computer classes in school a couple of years after I graduated.  I had my first introduction to the computer in college.  I took two computer language classes.  Why?  I really don't know.  I can tell you that I learned absolutely nothing in those classes, and couldn't even tell you what the language I was supposed to learn  was.. Is there something called Cobalt?  I really do not remember.  I got a C in both of the classes, because the student helper in computer lab would just write the programs for  you if you had a question.  Since I was so confused, I let him.  They also graded on a curve, and everyone else was just as confused as I was.  When  I had my first job with a computer, it had a black screen and yellow type.   My point of all that is, I am not the most computer literate person there is.  I often ask my 15 and almost 13 year old for help when I have a computer question, because they often know more than I do.   Since I would like to update my banner, graphics and more, and don't have the money to pay someone to do it for me, I  am hoping to teach myself by reading Dummy books, and watching You-tube videos.  We will see if I actually learn something about computers this time.

I also thought of two more series of posts that I plan on adding in the next few weeks.   One will be called Countdown to Summer Slimdown.   I am currently about 15 lbs more than I want to be, and I hope to lose the weight in the next few months. I am going to share my journey, because it will make me more accountable. If anyone else is having the same issue,  I would love if you go on the journey with me.     I am also noticing many things around the house that need to be updated,such as our banister that desperately needs painting.  I am planing to do several posts called Spring Time  Spruce Up.

Just one more thing.  I LOVE linky parties, and I am finally jumping in with one of my own.  I am hoping next weekend to launch  Dare to Share Saturday.  Blogging can often feel like you are sharing tips with your girlfriends, and that is the kind of feel I would love to have for my linky party.  I hope you will  join me then.
