I am so confused…
and I need answers!
I have blogged for a while now..granted not regularly..reading posts from other bloggers..I have encountered terms I don’t understand. I have asked other bloggers but nobody has given me answers.
What on earth is a “Selfie” and how does the President know but I don’t?? I just found out what a Selfie is. I never even heard of this term until I read a headline in my email from The Huffington Post, “Selfie, Oxford Dictionary word of the year”. Before I read the article, I chuckled aloud and while chuckling I asked Deanna if she had ever heard this word. Deanna laughed when I asked but she did tell me. It is taking a picture of yourself. Why do they call that a selfie? Isn’t there a better word?

What on earth is a “Linky”? What on earth is a “Super Linky”? Here is what I know about these..they have something to do with blogs and people seem to get excited about them. Please, Please leave me a message and explain this term and its process.
While we are at it..I don’t understand the difference between “uploading” and “downloading”. I’m never sure which I am doing. As a result I use both terms simultaneously. For example; “I just uploaded this or downloaded it; whichever”. I sound really stupid, even to myself and I feel really ignorant”.
I see bloggers writing posts with titles like “Fine Art Friday” and “Free Pattern Friday” and so on. Do bloggers use these titles every Friday (or other days of the week) by agreement with other bloggers? Or is it something like an outline for their weekly blogging?
How come blogs and web pages seem to look the same?
How come some blogs have links to sites like Amazon.com? Jo-Ann Fabrics? and such? Does this have something to do with HTML? Deanna says it is Hyper Text Markup Language but that doesn’t explain what it means. I have signed up with Amazon as an associate but I have had absolutely no success putting the link on my blog. Amazon’s associate language indicates that bloggers are welcome..I guess I’m not. I have asked questions about this and got answers like, go to this link on WordPress and follow the directions. I try. I even think I understand the steps..trying them over and over..
..the definition fits. I understand. “Crazy is doing the same thing over and over and expecting the different results” or so the experts on the subject say.

Don’t even get me started on Photos. I have tried several applications but still can’t get the look I want. How on earth should I insert Zemanta photos in my post where I want them? I have read the instructions but..well you know..I just get frustrated.
Why can’t I get my printer to print? Never mind this one..it is a network issue.
