Bloggiesta at last!


Plan.  Edit.   Develop.   Review.   Organize.

It is a little after 3 PM and I am just now starting my participation in the 4th Edition of Bloggiesta, a 72-hour fiesta of blogging, blog reviewing, website analyzing and blog updating unlike anything I have encountered since the last time I participated in this frenzy.

I thought I was going to get a huge head start on the event when I woke up this morning and discovered I had a “snow day”! Hooray! Unfortunately, I was greeted by a computer screen lacking any icons and after carefully turning it off and rebooting, then turning it off, unplugging it and rebooting, it appears my well over 7-year-old computer has entered the technological afterlife.

Which left me with an ASUS netbook with internet access, but no Microsoft Office programs.  OK, so I downloaded the 2-month trial of the Microsoft Office Student Edition. Problem solved.

Then I could not access my WordPress Dashboard because I could not remember my password which I had changed the last time something like this had happened. Oh for the love of…so I changed my password.

Now I am writing my initial blog because I know participating in Bloggiesta is worth every moment of frustration. As the manager said in A League of Their Own, “It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard… is what makes it great.”  That’s what perhaps everyone working away this weekend is shooting for – something great.I know I am.

But first I have to shovel some snow.  Back in a bit.

Happy Reading,

Kathy B.
