Blogging is a fear that I’ve been overcoming. Sharing information, putting it out into the ether, not knowing who is reading it. But my biggest fear has been using a computer, which continues to flummox me. Having purchased a laptop and transferring relevant material is such a tedious process. I sometimes hate the computer so much; I swear I’ll return to pen and paper.
Returning to a typewriter, I remember the drawbacks:
- Having to use tippex to whiten any mistakes.
- Then cutting and joining with sticky tape a paragraph that needs to be inserted elsewhere.
- Using that horrible black or blue paper to make copies, that never look as pristine as a computer copy.
Yes, I guess I am conquering my fears and appreciate the benefits of a computer. I shall just have to continue learning how to make best use of it.
