I am a stay at home mom who hates housework like most of the normal female population, so I blog to pretend I'm doing something productive. I am an old timer who totally dove into technology, for example, my cell phone still doesn't access the internet. But I did have a car phone in the early 90's. That's about as tech as I get, so the ins and outs of blogging has been a learning experience for me.
While I wish I could have been one of those artsy students who went to an artsy school like that Justice show on Nickelodeon where my creativity would be nurtured and encouraged unlike most schools in the U.S., I didn't have that luxury. So instead, I have youtube.
I do have some experience in graphic design and promotions, but it's really too pathetic to list. I am a bookkeeper by work experience on a resume, with some management experience. Sleep deprivation and MOM Syndrome has me actually transposing numbers and adding wrong. I wouldn't trust me with access to a GL at this point. But, at least I can file my own taxes, without H&R Block's software if I wanted to.
This blog isn't really my blog. It's my blog's blog. My blog is Crumepts and Bollocks where I talk about whatever I feel like talking about, sometimes nonsense, sometimes deep thinking stuff. I flip flop between taking it seriously and it being a hobby, but the one thing that remains constant is that I'm learning how to blog as I blog. When I find something that is useful to me, I blog about it here. Some of it is for me to remember how to do it in the future, and some of it is for anyone who stumbles upon it and is like, "That info came in handy."
What I don't get about the internet and real life is that people are more concerned with looking intelligent and professional. Like they think, "Hey I should write a tutorial, let me make it confusing so I sound like I know what I'm talking about." It doesn't help most people. It's like saying, "My mission, if I so choose to accept it, is to help someone figure something out, so I'm going to write it in a way where you have to know what you are doing to figure it out."
Hence this blog. When I say it's dummified to my level, what I mean is I attempt to write things out the way I wish other people did so I could have figured it out from reading their blog and not reading 17 articles and messing with it for 3 hours. I also try to entertain just a little because if you read 17 blogs about how to make comments show up on blogger, that gets very boring. It's really embarrassing when you fall asleep at the computer, especially when you drool on the mouse. I'm hoping someone will stumble on this blog in a google search on how to something and find it like reading the Pub 17 manual the IRS writes and finding the fword nestled within the boredom. I want to be your f-word. Plus, I know most bloggers drink when they blog, so I try to write things out like, "It's so easy, you can do it drunk."
