Thing #3

I did it! It only took me 1 hour to figure out how to get the avatar on my blog- I think I read and reread those directions 25 times. Creating the blog was cake. Designing the avatar became fun when I realized it doesn't have to look like me. One cool thing was when I looked through other blogs I noticed I can have the avatar anywhere on the page. What a feeling of accomplishment! I am on my way!

Thing # 2

After viewing the 7 1/2 Habits, I realize I am extremely nervous when it comes to learning how to use technology and then blog about my successes let alone my failures. It will be difficult to get over my lack of confidence in being competent in this. However, something that contrasts this fear is my determination to see how important the end result of my learning. I know that eventually I will look back and see my struggle as a "necessary evil" that led to my ability to communicate effectively.

On a different note- I love that my blog posts are automatically saved every few minutes. This makes life so much easier, and I do not have to worry about losing what I typed because I forgot to save it immediately!
