Somebody's Peeing In My Post Toasties...

Just found out that there are changes afoot in my blog world, by Google... Now it's bad enough that FaceBook is shoving changes down our throat which is making me thinking twice about even bothering to keep a profile on FB, but Google now from what I understand is wanting to change things around with our blogger accounts. No sidekicks on the sidebar and who else knows what.

I haven't started investigating all the things they are going to change but there is one thing you all know... I hate changes in areas that I am already uncomfortable in to start with... like internet shit. It's so much a foreign language to me, computer stuff, that it has taken me 15 years to get comfortable enough to (a) Turn the son of a bitch on without fear of blowing the sucker up... (B) learn how to do email... (C) Start slowly venturing further on to the web by doing searches for various interests... (D) Start a blog and last but not least (E)signed up for Facebook. All this process has taken me 15+ years which should give you an idea of how tentative I am with trying to learn anything technologically involved. Once I learn it and get comfortable with it I'm good.
I can do the things I like to do and try to learn a little more each time I get on, try to figure out something new or make a new friend that can explain stuff to me so I don't have to stretch my brain so hard... especially since I'm getting to the age where what viable braincells I do have left are dropping off left and right.

I don't know if I'll have enough brains to take me forward into more new technology especially since my ass is dragging way back yonder trying to catch up to the rest of me already.

I just want to be happy in my playhouse with the things I'm familiar with and only learn new things because I want to, not because I have no choice.

This is my story and I'm sticking to it.

I consider myself computer savvy (taught computer science) but I do hate the changes forced on us. I still don't like some of the Facebook ones. It is confusing for most everyone. Hope they don't make it harder to use instead of easier.

I am so with you on this!!

I dread the new Timeline on FB and if I ever did a blog post :( I'd probably get confused about that too. The world is changing fast enough without messing with the few things I have managed to "get"!

I totally dislike change!!

You had me at the title on this post. I love it...
I think that this new blogger thing is a conspiracy to rid the blogging world of some of us who look at a learning curve as Mt. Everest.
Recently I couldn't even figure out how to post a comment on one of my favorite blogs. I'm still not sure I'm doing it right.
EVERYTHING KEEPS CHANGING.
We need a union...

Hang in there, Helen! Hopefully they will be minor changes and not major like fb.

Seems like just when you get used to something is when it changes!

Thank you for another informative blog. Where else may I get that type of
info written in such a perfect method? I've a challenge that I'm simply now
operating on, and I've been on the glance out for such information.

Here is my website diet that works

Just be open-minded with all the changing & growing technologies. It may hard to start but soon you'll be able to understand & learn using or doing it. good luck!
