No matter how many times I tell myself how much I love my new role as a full-time blogger, I cannot get past some of the headaches associated with it.
All of them have one thing in common: technology.
I am a technological novice. I am not at all fluent in the language that Internet experts use when they converse with each other. They speak a jargon that is as self-contained as the language that doctors, lawyers and even journalists use when they speak to each other.
So, when technology throws me a curve ball, I am left to (a) my own devices or (b) call on one of my sons who happens to be quite fluent in the language known to those with more than a modicum of knowledge about this stuff.
Hell, I don’t even know a modicum of it.
I have been enduring some technical issues with this blog. I have had to rely on my son to walk me through it. We have had three-way conference calls that include him, me and the domain hosting service for which I pay a handsome annual fee.
I am in the middle of a technical issue right now. We will work our way through it. We’ll slog our way out of the mess.
Will this matter make me less in love with what I do these days? Not on your life. I will persist in seeking answers to these issues. I might even one day become semi-fluent in the language I ought to know when I get one of these geeks on the phone.
I could use some good thoughts and even a prayer or two.
