Status: doing edits
Wow, this is one month when I'm really glad I don't have to do three posts.
I just spent nearly a week rebuilding my website on Go Daddy. It took me one and a half days just to get the site figured out to upload the information I wanted and then another day to figure out how to get it placed the way I wanted. I'm still not crazy about how the blurbs hug the book covers, but I decided to wait until I need to update it next month to work on that some more.
When someone points out a program to help with writing I put my fingers in my ears and sing. It took me years to finally get word figured out to format my manuscripts and then the track changes for when I edited. I'm still struggling with publisher when I use it because I dont' use it every day only when I want to make up promotional materials.
The one thing I feel confidant about is Power Point. I love doing Power Point presentations. They're easy!
I've used movie maker to make a book trailer but all the buzz I've heard about how the trailers really don't help your sales, I've decided it isn't worth my time and effort.
While I love the technology of ebooks for their convenience and the ability for me to upload my own writing, I will always use a print book for research. It's easier to flag the pages I want to reread or have the information I need than hunting for them in a ebook doc.
And speaking of ebooks, I'm happy to say I've figure out the formatting for the ebook outlets and don't understand when others find it difficult.
So what about you? Are you technically adept or technically challenges? If you're technically challenged like I am, what is your worst nemesis?
