To you regular blog readers these instructions may seem simplistic but I’m writing this for some of my friends that are not familiar with blogs or web sites. You know who you are;-))
Also, just a side note to my friends out there that feel you have to read every post immediately – and yes, you know who you are too! Take a break and come back tomorrow.
Okay, so there are 3 tabs – Home, Welcome & More About Us
The Home tab will display our most current posts.
The Welcome tab is where you are now.
The More About Us tab is where you’ll be able to read, now imagine this: More About Us! Crazy eh? Yeah, I know and If by now you didn’t know or hadn’t already guessed that we are originally from Canada, that just may have given it away.
On the right side of the pages you will see several items which include some ads, a picture of our home, About Us, a map of where we’ve been, the daily motivator, google map, followers of this blog, a list of archives or past blogs and a list of other Bloggers that I follow.
If you move your mouse over any of these items and the curser changes to a hand or the item is highlighted you can click on those items and read whatever is there.
For example, in the Archives you will see different years which relate to the posts of that year. Just move your curser over them and click.
Currently there are only a few items but I will be updating these during the next few months. Why? Because I can! Thank You Live Writer.
Why The Blog & Why Now?During the last 7 years that we’ve lived and travelled in our motorhome we have collected thousands of photos and gathered just as many wonderful memories. This online journal has been created so that we may share our experiences and some of those memories with our families and friends.
For quite some time I’ve been a lurker!
It’s really not as bad as it sounds. I’ve been following all of those other bloggers listed on our Home Page. They have kept me entertained for more hours than I care to admit.
They continue to amaze me and keep me in total awe of the blogs that they produce, the flair of the writings and the spectacular photos that they post.
Above all that, I am truly amazed how committed they are to publishing regular posts. They know that in order to maintain readership and keep their followers entertained they must produce interesting stories on a daily basis.
Those are a couple of the main reasons that I’ve procrastinated so long with getting this blog started – I’m totally intimidated. Thinking to myself “I can’t write or express myself like that” or “I’m just learning about photography, these people are pro’s”.
Well, I’m going to relate this to when I took up the game of golf. When I was first learning how to play someone told me that it doesn’t matter if you play well or not. The fact that you are trying to learn the game with all of its rules will gain you the respect of the other golfers.
I sincerely feel that holds true for any challenge we take on in life.
I digress . . . and I do that a lot.
While not promising a daily post I do hope to be able to contribute at least often enough to keep a few friends and family interested enough to follow and comment on the blogs that I do post.
We also depend on WiFi hot spots as we travel so our connections are sporadic at best. That, and quite frankly our lives are just not that entertaining.
Don’t get me wrong . . . I Love our life but there are a lot of days we just don’t do much other than relax and enjoy the journey.
