Of all people in the world I was easily one of the most pessimistic about computers, the Internet and now that I even know they exist-blogs. I think blogs are pretty cool but I never thought I could have one. I thought the processes of getting a site; domain name and the actual building of the blog would just be out of my league. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a complete novice when it comes to technology, but I do like writing a journal, and I thought having a journal on-line would be both fun and make life simpler for me. No more writing with pens, other people can read my stuff and comment on it, and I could add pictures to illustrate my points and make things look more interesting.
Well, now IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got one! ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s awesome. I wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t lie and say it was easy, but I think if you hook up with a good web hosting company itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not such a daunting experience as you might expect. I got a few work mates to help me. I went through a couple administrative hitches when filling in my personal information forms for the registration-just because IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a bit silly in the head. We had a little trouble with the blog program we used, but these challenges were eventually overcome. My boss says heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to make a simple program that people can hook up easily.
I chose my domain name: canigetinfo.com.
I just want you to know the great feeling I got when I first typed in my domain name and my site came up! It was the equivalent to a person whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s afraid of heights being accepted into an astronautÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mission into outer space. Or maybe it was like a turtle driving a Ferrari 300km per hour. Possibly it was like all the ants in the world getting together for peace talks.
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a real blast having this blog. I can write on it any time, anywhere, from my laptop, at an Internet cafÃƒÂ© etc. I can write as much as I want, and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m hoping one day my writing may inspire others to communicate with me about the subjects that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m interested in.
Look, if you like writing about anything, and want to have your thoughts and opinions on the Internet, maybe meeting others similar to yourself in the progress; you have to get a blog and get it now. DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be afraid any longer, the world is in the palm of your hands; itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s time to get on!
