I am not a fan of learning new technology…in fact, I hate it. Just thinking about updating to a new phone, new printer, new camera or new computer program just makes me think about crying.
I think the hatred comes from the item not being tangible. If the printer doesn’t work, it typically isn’t because it isn’t plugged in. It’s some “communication error” that I can’t see and don’t have a clue of how to fix. I don’t know how many times I’ve wound up in tears.
I have been having trouble with the software that I use to publish my website, Making Learning Fun. For those of you who don’t know, Making Learning Fun is my “real” job. I put together educational ideas for preschool through first graders. The printables and ideas are all on my website and are free for everyone to download.
Finally after three month of woes and fighting, I bought the new software. It sat here a few days. Other commitments have kept me from installing it-but today, I can finally, finally install it. The program is Microsoft Web Expressions 4.
If you hear crying and wailing from Iowa…it’s me.
