Allright...so I've never claimed to be computer savvy..at all BUT, I do like to pretend that I actually know what I am doing. This type of thinking can get me into some trouble. First, I have the great potential to F* up this whole blog! Who the hell knows just where I may be directing my blog peeps? I have been trying to add a few 'buttons" to try and cross-promote my etsy store...signing up for google placements..feeds...feedburner..links and whatnots! My head is spinning just thinking about it. Hopefully I have bullshited my way through all of the technology enough to send you all to places I have intended...Secondly, that 'ol ass-sucking time wasting vortex of reality..you know..the time it actually takes to try and navigate through all of the places that will optimize my views and increase my traffic flow...Hours upon hours of time have been devoted to such and all is still a big question mark to me. Let's just be straight here..I have no idea at all what I am doing...with the codes..and copying..and widgets..and feeds and blah, blah, blah! There is something to be said though at the amount of technology there is out there...especially for those who really do know how to use it all...Hey..it could be worse...about 10 years ago..when we all had pagers...I had a numeric pager and my mother would actually call my pager number and attempt to leave a voicemail on it! I shit you not! Then she'd get so pissed that I didn't return any of her 'messages' she left me...I'd say.."Mom..it is a numeric pager...you have to call and leave your phone number..then I call you back after I receive it"..so, you guessed it...what she did after I gave her specific directions..YUP..she'd call my pager...and after the beep..would begin to leave her phone number by saying it outloud.....she never did quite grasp the idea of having to wait for the beep and then DIAL your number..Oh well. So after all of this crazy forward progression I am trying to put myself in technically..I'll never be as bad as my mom! (Although, I am certain my own kids laugh at me behind my back becuase of the less than knowledgible way I approach the 'puter!) I'm out for now..gotta get back to crafting!

Ok...Ok...Ok...I've always known that I am a HUGE procrastinator..but this is bordering on ridiculous! Has it really been two months since I last created a post? Either that means that I have had the good fortune to be amongst the living and actually enjoying my summer OR I have just been slacking! I can't bring myself to admit to either...so you pick whichever one you think is the truth. There are still so many things on that endless 'to do' list that I have admittedly not even looked at let alone actually done. Where is the reason in that? Part of me feels as if I am actually accomplishing something by even adding items to the list but what good are they if you don't do them? Just ends up becoming an overwhelming long list of nothingness! I used to LOVE the actual physical crossing off of completed items on said list..but now it just all seems so overwhelming..NO MORE LISTS! Yeah, that's how I can solve the procrastination problem. Don't have anything to procrastinate over, right? In theory this sounds good but I will inevitably end up with a bazillion unfinished projects, a room-filled pile of dirty clothes, a sink-full of dishes, a dirty (and stinky) dog...unruley knee-high grass and an overwhelming sense of failure... So, I find myself having the need to create a rather twisted version of an Aesop (sp?)Fable...let's see...ok.." A long list of things to do that never get done is far greater than never getting done that long list of things to do"... Well that's not an Aesop's Fable at all...that's more of a revelation...a Confucious speak...some quirky play on words...But the sentiment is there..so let's see what I can accomplish. The only way to actually accomplish anything at all is to get my 'growing by the day' ass up out of this chair and off of the computer..so..to be continued!
