Granny learning the way of the young

Last Update: August 19, 2017

That is totally how I feel with this whole technical things. My website is stepping up a gear but with this I need to learn more of the technical side.....completely out of my depth.

you would not have thought I come from a family of tech geeks! even my own mum knows more than me (embarrassing!)

My dad worked for Ericson testing mobile phones before they came on the market to fix all the problems before they went on sell. I remember taking one in to school one day as my phone was broken and all my friends where amazed! this product should never have left the house....opps! Lucky friends got a sneak peak before it came out :)

My oldest brother works in producing game software and Facebook applications (think that's the right words?!) He's busy living and working in London so don't see him much.

My other brother has taken over my old job for extra cash but also does web design....yes web design but I would never go to him for help as we have a very difficult relationship to say the leased so I would rather struggle in silence :)


Anyway my point is that even though I come from a full line of technical minded people I am far from it! Its a total learning curve which I'm going to learn even if I do it kicking and screaming.(like the past couple of days-sorry!) Especially with the help of you lovely people as your all amazing but especially funny guy who should know who he is! Who has definitely got my back for some reason! I'm happy you have though :)

I must remember to keep on with the training as I'm getting a bit focused in getting my website how I want but your right training will aid this! I think I sometimes am expecting myself to run before I can walk. I always expected myself to do to much before I can!

I used to be the techie geek in my team at work. I loved playing with software to see what it would do. A few years ago I picked up a graphics program and discovered it could do animation. Freaked people at work out when I mentioned it. (I never did evolve that far, but it was fun to have.)

The other part of the equation of what we are attempting, however, I had no clue about. It is nice to be working to bring both sides up to speed. Even if it does stretch muscles I never knew I had!

Nice to hear the perspective from the other side. I never thought about the fact that being able to the techy stuff is not the whole picture so even those who know the programmes have these testing times just in a different way!

After my first big hurdle of figuring out how to turn the laptop on thus how I found the WA. But it does not matter what you do or do not know, its what you are willing to learn, willing to put in and willing to see it through. You have those three things, you have success whether or not you have some tall. lanky, devilishly handsome man helping you out. Just stay positive and take baby steps and believe in yourself, there's nothing that can stop a woman like that in today's world.
