"The hardest part is the writing", people said about making a blog. I kept putting it off, feeling I should read Computers for Dummies, first. Then, my daughter started one. Even though she has taught me all I know about cellphones and Facebook, I figured, if she could do it so could I. I decided it was time to try.
The set up wasn't hard, until I had to insert some code onto my site. I read over the directions. I read them again. I couldn't figure out what they meant. It was like I was trying to read Chinese. I kept trying all sorts of things, but nothing worked. My older brother, who designs software, could have done the task in two minutes. I sat staring at those words for three days. It haunted me in my sleep. I searched the internet. Every search resulted in the same foreign words. I was about to give up and email my brother, when I happened across a slightly different explanation, one with real words not written for a computer to read. It worked! "I figured it out!" I yelled. I jumped up from the computer and pumped my fists to the sky like I had just scored the winning goal of the Stanley Cup. My brother will be so proud! I thought. The kids were just happy that now I could leave the computer for awhile.
