Cheryll's Writing Journal

Musings, rants and ravings, plus gems of insight nobody wants to hear now that I've finally got them. Also neat stuff I found on the 'Net when I should have been updating this blog....

It's a new world out there in e-land!

For the last 5 years I have been writing a weekly column on the Bahá'í Faith for and pretty much abandoned this blog. So, having retired from that project, I'm back -- and have to relearn everything I used to know about Blogger and blogging! Like, what happened to my nice template? What will the page actually look like for my readers? What do all those instructions mean? And how do I keep ads off my page?

And that is not all I have to be relearning! Going back into publishing, after 20 some years. Boy, has that all changed, too! So now I need to learn social networking online... Found this very nice book to help me How To Be A Writer In the E-Age: A Self-Help Guide but -- um -- what does it mean when you can read every word and still not have a clue what they are talking about?

Feeling torn between " too old" and "excited" to be learning new things.
