I like to think I'm forward thinking and introspective. I like to think I'm ahead of the curve in many respects. Obviously technology is not one of them!
I still have a landline. I just got a laptop with wi-fi last summer. Up until earlier this week, my "newest" TV was at least 11 years old. I do know, to the amazement of my parents, that you CAN google the answers to nearly ANYTHING you want to know. My own latest foray into the world of advanced technology happened this afternoon.
I love Facebook. Seriously. I think it's a great way to kind of keep a pulse on what your friends/cohorts/former classmates are doing and what is important to them. I love being able to read their blogs and I really love being able to share mine with people who I may not interact with on a daily basis. But all of these apps and pages and other things that you can join as a friend are mind-boggling to me.
That being said, it doesn't stop me from wanting to promote my own interests when I get a chance. For instance, a neighbor that lives down the street from me has a very cute bungalow that she's in the process of upgrading and renovating. (Don't even get me started on how it makes my perfectionistic tendencies go into overdrive. She's done an amazing job!) She created a page on Facebook to share her entries with her Facebook friends. Well, that seemed like a fabulous idea to me, so I decided to do the same for my own blog rantings. It seemed easy enough, but ended up being a bit more head-scratching than I thought it would.
In the grand scheme of things, it didn't take that long to do (about 1 hour or so), but in a world where we are used to instant gratification, it seemed like forever.
My thanks to Rachel and her Facebook expertise. If you've gotten here through Facebook, welcome.
