I am technology illiterate. I watch my children and even grandchildren use their gadgets so easily and I wonder what there is on there that they can spend so much time on their phone or computer.
I have to admit, I was probably one of the last people in Martins Ferry to get a cell phone. I really couldn't see the since in paying for two phones. It never dawned on me to just get rid of my house phone. I had both until about a year and a half or so ago when I finally disconnected my house phone. Sometimes, I wonder if I did the right thing. Now people have access to me 24/7 and this can become annoying but then again, people have access to me 24/7 and this can be a lifesaver.
Thanks to Dale, I got a new phone a couple of months ago. I can now go on facebook and check my mail on there. Yea. I watch my girls doing all this different stuff on their phones and just can't figure out how to do it on mine. On top of that, I don't have the imagination to figure out what I want to do with my phone. Who comes of with these different apps to add to you phone and how do you even know what to look for? I am so confused.
My technology illiteracy is not limited to the phone. I am computer illiterate also. I went back to school a few years ago and was told in my first class I would need to do a powerpoint presentation. What in the world is powerpoint? Thank heaven for my youngest daughter. She walked my through the process several times and even "prettied up" some of my presentations.
I have been doing some sewing and thought I would try to sell some things on ebay. My oldest daughter casually says to me, "why don't you just make a webpage and sell them on facebook?" Really, you can do that? I have no idea how that is done but with some help, I am going to try to get it up and running. We will see.
This blog has been a new experience for me. I have done some writing and sharing and it actually is relaxing for me. I know there is a way you can link this blog to your facebook account. I haven't figured out how to do that yet. I just copy and paste and there you have it. Oh well, maybe someday I will become the technology literate person I want to be.
