Learning Curve Confession
"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new." - Albert Einstein
Well, here I am at blog post #4. If you've read my blog from Facebook, you might be scratching your head. You might be saying, "But this is only the second one I've seen!" And you'd be right for Facebook posts. However, this is truly #4 on my website. And that's because my learning curve apparently was pretty steep... and I made at least one mistake with #2 and #3. Let me explain.
Post #1 was entered with my personal tech support, Megan, by my side. She carefully guided, and I thought I paid close attention to details. Everything worked pretty much as planned.
Post #2, I took a deep breath, carefully followed the process, and scheduled the post to appear on September 4th when I planned to be walking the beach in Rodanthe, NC. That day I did check my website to be sure it posted. Feeling happy as a clam it was there, I went back to thinking about all things beachy!
Post #3, I was feeling a little more at ease I went through the process and scheduled to post the next day, September 18, as I had a critique group meeting in the morning. That gathering was cancelled, and I stayed home. Shortly after the scheduled post time I went to my website and discovered most of my blog post was there. But where was the ending? Panic! I took a deep breath, looked at the screen and focused to remember what Megan showed me about editing. What I remembered about making corrections was successful, and all seemed well in "blog land." Until I looked on Facebook, and found it was not there. And neither was #2! Panic again!
After texts, emails, and dialogue, Megan discovered that I missed at least one step in the process. The step that posts my blog to Facebook. Humph!
Blogging, a website, and Facebook are all new to me. I'm guessing there could be more glitches as I move forward learning. Thank you for understanding.
And now that you're here, you can read my previous two blog posts that you might have missed.
