This whole online blogging thing is new to me. I read lots of great, inspiring blogs and I have kept a journal for many years but in all honesty, the idea of really mastering  the computer has kind of always scared me… until just recently. I have tried to analyze this phobia, and that is really what it is because I LOVE to learn new things. If I am really being truthful with myself, it all boils down to fear.

I remember a time last fall, my son Jory and I were having a conversation  about computers and technology. He was encouraging me to branch out for my own sake and it dawned on me that being left behind was worse than risking failure. So this year I am ” taking the steps” by learning new things about how a computer works and this blog is a definitely a step in the right direction.
