Getting My Blog On

Hi all & happy Sunday!
Today's gloomy weather,
combined with James being sick
can only mean one thing,
it's gonna be a lazy afternoon.
After a busy week I'm in just the right
frame of mind to thoroughly enjoy this time!

So, what will I be entertaining myself with
while the guys play the Wii and watch sports??
A little blog work. :)

You see this quest to conquer my blog
started quite innocently...
by visiting other people's super cute blogs.
Of course I wanted my blog to be
polished and perfect before publishing my first post.
But when that didn't happen I moved on
to slowly learning and decorating as I went.

Then Christmas came and my sweet hubby
wanted to give me a gift he knew I'd love.
He purchased Blogging For Bliss by Tara Frey
and I devoured every single chapter,
more than once. :)

Next came Photoshop Elements
which I loaded onto my MacBook Pro.
Ah it was love at first design.

Now I've added a new trick to my bag,
I call it Techno Talk for Dummies.
It's actually 8 books in 1,
including html, xhtml and css.
Which means I'm officially getting my blog on.

Did you know that blogging
is actually short for web logging?!
The name means it's literally an online public diary.
Who knew??
Apparently not me. :)

Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy your afternoon!

It's exciting improving your blog. I haven't really used a lot of my skills on my blog yet, but hopefully one day I will. I love photoshop! Oh, how I love it <3

Wow. Cannot believe you didn't know about what blog meant. Did you know that vlog is short for a video log? ;)

So in my defense I did know what blogging was... just not that it was short for web logging. :)

Oh I can't wait to check into those books. I know that I need the techno talk for sure!
