Thing #3

Setting up my blog wasn't too challenging that is at least until I came to adding my avatar but we will get to that later. One of the hardest parts of creating my blog was coming up with a name. I decided to go with a character from one of my favorite artists, Mary Englebreit. She has a character named The Queen of Everything which I have always loved so that seemed like a natural choice for my blog. I had a blast creating the avatar. It reminded me of playing paper dolls when I was a young child. Now comes the hard part: Getting the avatar onto my blog. I read and re-read the directions but finally gave up and asked for advice from my sixteen year old daughter (Sarah, Princess of Quite A Lot, another of ME's characters). Of course, she quickly, very quickly solved my problem and then laughed in my face. She suggested I take a computer course and laughed more when I said that was what this course is about. So, needless to say, I'm tired and a little frustrated but I'm hanging in there.

  1. your turn for showing her something is coming soon, I just know it!

    Would you explain a little further as to what gave you a problem with the avatar?

  2. I followed the screen shots and all the import. My daughter saved my avatar to my computer and imported it to my blog and it worked like a charm.

  3. Love those ME characters! It's wonderful how our kids never seem to be intimidated by new software or techniques. They have been so immersed in it. Manuals are going to be obsolete (or are they already??) :)

  5. I just love ME and 'The Queen of Everything.' I have called myself that at times, maybe in an attempt to believe I have some control in my life. :) Your daughter sounds like the perfect ME Princess!

  6. I originally felt frustrated when my three teenagers laughed at my feeble efforts to navigate new technology--not new to them, of course. Now, I bow to their superior wisdom and extensive experience and accept that they have something to teach me. Hey, I guess it's their turn. If I could just get them not to laugh. . . .
