Creating a Blog is a very new and fascinating thing for me. I use computers in my office every day, but I'm not a computer expert. EnglishCut.com is a blog by Thomas Mahon which originally inspired me. His blog has been very successful at explaining the intricacies of a specialized profession. Hopefully, my blog can reach those out there who are interested in the topics I present. Maybe it can inspire others to be interested in my profession as well.
First, I had to start the thing. Using Blogger, I set up appropriate templates. Wow, I thought, there is a lot of this HTML stuff in the templates. This looks like computer geek stuff way over my head. Where's the manual? However, with diligent hard work, well, hard for me, I created this blog and made my first post in September 2005.
I use a Macintosh MacBook Pro (as of May 2006) with OS X. I use a 20-inch Apple Cinema display when I am working at home. I use my digital camera, scanned photos and my GL-1 Video camera to make some of the images here. I also use Foxfire as my browser. I used to use Safari, but it does not support all the features on Blogger right now. I'll go back to Safari if they fix that concern. For the video, I use iMovie. Yes, you may not see any video here right now, but I'm working on it.
Mainly, I just spend a lot of time thinking up new interesting things to write about, new topics of that people might find informative and entertaining, and new photos or videos to use.
