Play Week

Well we've come to the end of an interesting few weeks.Whatever will I do with my spare time? I had some problems with my blog that not even our resident techno-geek could solve.It is not surprising ,my children maintain that our house is where electronic devices go to die,and my car electrics are a joke,to lock the doors you must unlock them,the radio doesn't switch off and the clocks spins out of control constantly!It's like the carousel that goes backwards in that very scary book by Ray Bradbury,"Something wicked this way comes."But I digress,I intend to try another blog under another name and see if I can iron out these hitches just for my own satisfaction. I doubt if I would use a blog personally,but the experience has tempted me to keep a journal of thoughts,happenings etc.I just don't want to share it with the world. I have my photographs on Picasa and I intend to explore what that site has to offer.I hope to have my own digital camera soon,and not be limited by what my husband shoots.Everyone seemed to have so much fun with mash-ups and image generators that I would like to pursue these things as I am already a great fan of Publisher. I may use the RSS feeds to keep in touch with whats happening in places where I formerly lived. I'm not a great fan of You-tube but I did find a recording of a song that I have been unable to buy,borrow or interloan.The concept is wonderful, but the reception lets it down.I may go back to sandbox wiki because I have a particular hobby collection and information could be shared with others of a like mind.Library thing was fun,and if I could get the hang of pod casts, I could listen to the Kim Hill interviews I've missed.
I'm a little uneasy about the My space and Facebook type things.I'm glad they were not around while my children were growing up,as I feel they could have sinister connotations, and I wouldn't like to get involved in chat-rooms.
I don't really know what use I will make of my new found knowledge in a work situation,But at least I won't feel such a complete dummy and the terms will be familiar even if I can't always use the applications.
I will feel a little bit of loss at the end of this, because it has been the subject of so much discussion in the lunch room,but not enough to go on to the next 20 steps!

    I have just dipped into your Blog and was interested to read that you have experienced difficulties with your Blog. Well, so have I and to be able to submit My Posts for the last three excersises I had to resort to Zoho Writer to get them done. At the time it was most frustrating, but like you, I got there in the end. Even now I still finding it hard to make a comment, this is my second attempt at it.
