Thoughts on Technology

So I think my post on flickr groups technically counts as post about anything technology related, but I had a random technology thought so I thought I would it get it out of the way.

I sometimes get mistaken as a techy person.  I’m not.  I don’t really like gadgets at all and I can barely work my cable!  And techy people do not mistake me as one of them, usually it is people like my parents and friends.  But I think it does go back to lifelong learning.  I’ve noticed I am good with technology that is directly relevant to my interests.  An example of this is my Ipod, after a year, I still have to call my husband to load it up!  I like music, but I am not obsessed enough with it.  I did not even try to figure my Ipod out until I discoverd craft-related podcasts on Craft Sanity.  I still struggle with burning CDS (that is embarrassing to admit actually, but in my defense, I can burn CDS I just don’t like to)!!!  However, I have pretty easily learned to customize my craft blog using some html and manipulating the template a little.  I’ve taught myself a few things in photoshop too.  It all goes back to my interest though…I wanted to learn how to make my craft blog look a certain way and I was determined, so I taught myself.  I also think my library-style, google search skills helped me to find the information that allowed me to do this.   It led me to this fabulous site, which I highly recommend, if you too have an interest in customizing your blog (but it is for blogger only)!  So that is where I stand on technology…for me, it always goes back to being a lifelong learner.  I am good at technology that is relevant to something I am interested in.
