Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

Frustration Can be a Great Blogging Motivator

Years ago, I was teaching myself HTML so I could have my own webpage.  I cannot tell you how incredibly frustrating it was given my main computer experience had been with Fortran using the old punch cards.  But I'm not a quitter and frustration just makes me dig in my heels deeper.  I was reminded of how many times I was frustrated setting up my blogs just today when I was re-learning customizing brochures in Word.  I haven't done brochures in ten years so had forgotten some of the little tricks involved.  I'm seriously pulling my hair out here and yet it reminds me so much of the blogging learning curve!  Many a night I was up pushing myself out of frustration just to get one of my blogs to look a certain way.  I can't tell you how many times I was frustrated over learning how to use Photoshop something needed for images and graphics on my blogs.  So essentially I was learning two programs at once.   Frustration can be a great motivator especially if you are like me ...
