Actually, of the three, the blog is the easiest to do. I just go into edit mode and click and add or delete and there it is. I can update it every day without a problem - sometimes even several times a day.
The myspace spot is a little more problematical. Since I work there with another Vick, we coordinate what we do (some of the time) and I don't always get over there. I find myspace difficult to navigate and much too "busy" for my tastes, but it is popular so I deal.
Then there's my web site. Stonecreek Media did an awesome job with it. I absolutely love the site. And I know I could pay them to do the updates, but sometimes money *is* the issue. So I'm learning to code. What I don't like is I used to use FrontPage. Okay, I can see all the techno-geeks cringing. What can I say? I'm not good with coding. Even back in the day when I took Fortran and Cobol and all that stuff, coding was not my strong point.
What I liked with FrontPage was I could see the picture of the page and work with that. I didn't need to know the coding because the program did it for me. Want to update your lists? Okay, stick the websites in there, tell it what you want it to look like and, voila, it is there. But now my pages are in a .php style of file and my Front Page program doesn't know what to do with them. So I have to learn coding. I can't do what I want because I don't know how - yet.
So I struggle on. I'm learning, but it's a slow process because of the time involved.
Maybe it would just have been better to pay someone to do it.
Yesterday's progress - review book finished. "Life's a Beach" by Claire Cook. Grade A-. It's a nice light read for the summer, but I'll probably never read it again nor will it become a keeper. This one will be donated. But it still was a good book. Full review will appear at www.wantzuponatime.com

Tips and Teasers: You’re in a museum, browsing around ancient artifacts. Someone pushes you and you stumble, breaking a case and an ancient sealed vase. A strange vapor escapes. What happens next?
