I'm 63, and I did not learn how to really use my computer until 6 months ago. I always felt behind the times in social occasions where everyone was talking about the "web" and e-mail's, etc; so, I decided to take the plunge and learn. Well, how I decided to learn was to start a Blog. Now, I'm not sure why I chose this route, but I did.
After blogging for awhile, I have figured out why I began. First of all, to use my brain; but there was another reason.
Everything is beautiful in blogland; the pictures, the people, the words. When everything in the world seems to be going haywire all at once, it is comforting that I can be in a beautiful environment by simply turning on my computer.
Please don't get me wrong, I'm very concerned about the world situation; Haiti, The War, The Global Financial Situation. I even belong to a weekly group of women who meet to discuss just these issues and more.
But I find great comfort in being able to escape for a while in the beautiful world of
blogland. Don't you?
