PAULA'S SOUTHAMPTON BLOG: August 2012

"I AM NOT TECH SAVVY, NOR DO I WANT TO BE!!!" Go Ahead, Admit It! It's OK!

TECHIE, I AM NOT!"I AM NOT TECH SAVVY, NOR DO I WANT TO BE!!!" Go ahead, admit it! It's OK!

In a response to a comment on my last post, I got a little edgy when for the umpteenth time, someone came to my "rescue" and with the best of intentions confused me even further by a "helpful" answer! In dealing with the issues here on AR with my posts dissappearing, I have found myself defending the fact that I don't want to go elsewhere to post and then copy and paste here on AR...Now, I do know what copy and pasting is, and I do know a few other terms (well, more than a few!) that apply to technology when blogging. But I am far from being a "techie" and I want to come clean and stop defending myself when confronted with a barage of: "You should know that you can post elsewhere first"...or: "I just go to Google pages (or whatever it is) and write my posts and then I go to BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!"

STOP!

If I were always blogging or if I was a real techie I would know of what you speak...however, I am a real estate agent who I BLOG--I AM NOT A TECH NERD!does so many other things like:

  • write ad copy
  • take photos
  • upload photos
  • photo shop those photos
  • embed those photos in REShows
  • create REShows
  • become an expert on real estate laws and disclosures so that I don't get sued
  • look at houses
  • expertly price those houses
  • create marketing plans
  • connect with many and varied people
  • untangle complicated deals
  • save those deals
  • negotiate like a real pro
  • properly deal with a big company website/email (that is not that great and is constantly breaking down)  

WELL....you get the idea, NO???!

THERE IS SO MUCH TO LEARN!So, I really don't care to become a tech savvy person--I get by with this system here on AR and to get involved in all the other stuff just is too time consuming and too complicated for me to become adept at it....QR codes suck! This HTML stuff has never been clear to me--I have no idea what it stands for nor do I want to know--I used to see it at the top of the page here on AR while I was blogging but never wanted or needed to know exactly what those letters stand for. I JUST guess at most of the stuff here anyway...don't see that I want to get more involved than that!

Thanks for trying to help! But please don't try to make me a techie!
