Problem in chair – not in computer (picnic)?

Blog 2012 / internet / Journal Blog / technology / Uncategorized / You must be kidding?

These last few weeks I’ve found the WordPress blogs a bit challenging. Today I set some time aside to explore whether it was me (picnic ūüôā ) or whether I wasn’t getting updates or if there is some other problem. It¬†feels like the¬†rate of change this year has been exponential. Until recently I felt like I was on top of it all. So I went to the WordPress¬†Forums to see what I could find out. […]

Lost – Widgets – Reward Offered!

Blog 2012 / technology / You must be kidding?

The craziness started on Friday when I noticed my widgets were missing? How could they disappear? Has anyone seen them around? This led me to thinking it would be good to change my blog theme again and get some NEW widgets. I notice that most bloggers don’t change the look of their sites very often. I like change! I skipped through many of the free blog themes provided by WordPress. I was looking for one […]

I would like to share the occasional insight with you as I go on this learning journey. It is good to find that the course has some focus about writing for web-based purposes. I really enjoy dabbling with the technology and I am quite excited about the seemingly endless possibilities for online communication. cheers for now Lorraine The text-book is Technical Communication Рa reader centred approach, 7th Edition, Anderson.

I get a lot of pleasure and satisfaction in writing my blog. Sometimes I don’t have much to say. Today is one of those days! There are so many interesting things to do each day, and so little time. So today¬†I¬†am¬†posting¬†another song and lyrics from musician and family friend, Don Wright. This one is called Surfin the Web. I hope you like it.¬† Click on the title below and enjoy the experience¬†of¬†Don’s original work. Surfin […]

I was born in 1954. That sounds like a long time ago – 57 years and¬†I will be 58 in November 2012. I am the youngest of five children – Mum had five children under ten years of age. She had a career in Nursing, worked shift-work, kept a spotless home as well as bring up five children. She was a hard act to follow! Mum polished our lino¬†floor on her hands and knees, with […]

¬†I have a girlfriend that doesn’t have email. This means that the only time we catch up is by phone once every few months. We don’t live in the same town. My friend is on a disabiliity pension and is reluctant to spend her pension on paying for an internet server, a computer and new software. I would like to buy her an up to date computer, with all the latest software¬†and pay all her […]

This morning I read in¬†the Sunday Times that text messaging will phase out within the next 3+ years! I have also been invited to join Google + and can start to see the demise of Facebook. Last week I was very tempted to buy a new iPhone 3 to enable me to keep up with the changes. I believe iPhone 4 is due to be released anytime soon anyway! I decided against a new phone […]

It took me a long time to think of a name that encompassed all the different aspects of my interest in writing – All About Words WA (ie Western Australia)¬†fitted the bill¬†and I¬†registered¬†it as a¬†Business Name. When it came time¬†to choosing a name for my blog¬†it¬†was¬†the logical choice. Today I changed the theme of my blog from Coraline to ChaoticSoul. It is great to get access to these opportunities through WordPress. I do like change. […]

Am I too reliant on technology?

technology / Writing

I am going away for a short holiday and I don’t know if the holiday accommodation has internet access. Yes, I am reliant on technology, but maybe I will manage without it for a few days…maybe? I love to read the blogs daily, write my blogs regularly,¬†check my email and check Facebook¬†to see what is happening with my Facebook friends. If I don’t know the meaning of a word I go straight to google. If […]

A rant about technology

technology / Wisdom too late / You must be kidding?

Recently I posted my goals for this new financial year. Among them was a goal to keep up with technology! Mmmm…did I really mean that? This rant comes about after receiving a letter from Telstra notifying me that there was¬†a software problem with my phone! I put it aside for a few weeks hoping that it would disappear into “thin air”. I found it again today and decided to tackle it. First I needed a […]
