Learnin' Something New

So this blogging thing has become quite the learning experience for me. I have NEVER been a computer person. Sure I use it to email, facebook and google, but I couldn't do much more than that, really. Starting my blog has forced me to learn a whole bunch of new things and I have to admit, I'm very proud of myself for what I've accomplished so far. Yes, Blogger has a great template that guides you through the process, but you still have to figure out somethings on your own. Up until a couple days ago I'd been able to do it all by myself, no outside help, and then I wanted to make a "button". A button is a cute little link that other bloggers can use on their blog as link to my blog. Got it? It's kinda like free advertising for me.  : )  I thought, I must make a button! And then the reality hit, I have no clue what to do. It actually involves me somehow using the dreaded HTML. YIKES!! 

This is when I had to ask for HELP! I emailed my blogging buddy Adriane from Fruitful Home Journal. She sent me some info and links to help me out. So this morning I sat down and tried it. I'd like to say that it took me 10 minutes and it was easy as pie. I'd like to say that. Yeah, not soo much. It took a bit longer than I thought it would, but after who knows how long, I did it. I. did. it!! I'm sure some of you out there at thinking whoopity-do (yes that's a real word), but please let me have my minute of glory. Ahh... Thanks.  : )  So you want to see it? It's cute.

See, I told ya. Cute!! Although I should have put a border around the box, grr. I may have to do that. But for now I'm just relishing the fact that I made that. Me! Wow!!

I can not tell you how happy doing this makes me. It has been an adventure and a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to the future and what it will bring. Who knows where this little blog of mine is going. I can't wait to see.

Oh, feel free to grab my button!! heehee
