Things I Want to Learn

How to create a website using Word Press.

I got "Head First Word Press" at my DH's recommendation (he loves the Head First series and pretty much anything by O'Reilly press) but it's like reading Hebrew or Russian. I didn't get past the first chapter about downloading a zip file, FTP protocols and how to upload to your host.

Just writing that last makes my head hurt.

How to create a custom fan page with a vanity URL and make sure the landing page is pretty and not just the wall.

I'm sure there are tutorials out there, but I spent all my "learning" time yesterday beating my head against the Word Press wall. Maybe I'll try the Facebook thing today. It can't be any more frustrating.

How to self-publish a book.

Just because I'd like to know how. I was considering this just for fun with a series I have planned by not written (the first story is done). It's one of those things on my "learning" bucket list. Again, I'm sure there are tutorials out there, it's just finding the time.

Those are the big three for me now. I could add:

How to add a CNAME for my blogger blog at my webhost.

Yeah ... spent a good hour trying to figure this out yesterday. Sometimes I feel like I have the IQ of a gnat.

What are some things you want to learn?


Ideas Light Up Your Life

Others wish they had the guts to be as original as you are. Your confidence in yourself is unmatched.

You think it's interesting to imagine how the world could be. You are a daydreamer.

You tend fly solo. You have a few good deep friendships, and that's all you need.

You are a friendly and honest person. You're willing to give anyone a shot, no matter who they are.

That's mostly right. Not sure how original I am, but otherwise pretty spot on.

It's so cool that you want to learn.

I want to learn a third language.

I am full of things I don't know. :)

What is a CNAME?

A friend of mine recently tried to rename her blogger blog to her pen name, but in the end she had to start all over. It was sad. She lost all her original followers.

Sometimes I think I want to my my regular blog to wordpress, but have no idea how it's done without starting over.
I want to learn Gaelic. I also want to learn to play the celtic harp (I already know the piano, drums and guitar.).
I also wouldn't mind learning the kids MA and how to fire a gun. Yeah, I'm weird.

You're a very smart woman, I have no doubt you'll teach yourself everything you want to know eventually.

Hope you have a fabulous day!

I don't know what I want to learn. I'm sure there's something. LOL
