I was so clueless (okay still am) when it came to Blogging. I started this adventure almost a year ago, and I still haven't learned all the do's, don'ts and hows. I have learned a lot along the way just by playing around on my computer. Sad thing is, I don't have a lot of computer skills. Until I started blogging, I had NEVER used PowerPoint. I read blogs, but didn't really follow them. I have learned some things in the past year. I'm still learning something new everyday.
I wish I had had a coach to help me along the way when I started out. It would've made things easier, and less time consuming. I offered to help a few coworkers. (I love the people I work with--some of them are new to technology and have a hard time using a mouse--so my tutorials are for basic skills). I didn't know how to explain things to them, so I typed it up, step by step, and tried to be detailed. I even assigned homework. I worked in small doses with the directions as to not overwhelm them.
As simple as this may sound, I wish I would've had someone help me with that....so, I thought I'd share for all of you who may be thinking of going into the blogging world. Mind you, I typed it out as if I were talking---SOOOO there are LOTS of run on sentences and grammatical errors.
Here's the first tutorial (in which I assigned homework lol).
If you are wanting to go a step farther and begin a blog, this contains how to save images, load them and link them.
Finally, after mentioning Pinterest so many times, I gave a little tutorial on it too.
I know so many of you out there are already WAY past me in blogging skills and computer skills, but I hope this helps someone who may be a little unsure, like my coworkers and myself.
