Second Dilemma - Paying bills on-line

Ok, so I'm tired today. I'm getting up to speed with all things electronic and stayed up too late trying to remember my passwords for the various sights enabling me to pay my bills on-line. I'm saving paper, being eco-friendly, and creating dark circles under and red streaks in my eyes. All that said, the bills are paid, I saved stamps, and I'll spend the morning praying the payments actually go through. Here's to another wired day (and, I'm not just talking about the caffeine!)

First Dilemma

How do you go about setting up a blog and why? I'm a mother of three boys who works, takes care of everybody and is too tired to add another "to do" to her list. But sharing some of life's decisions may just make someone else's life a little simpler. So the dilemma of whether to blog or not to blog has just been answered.

I know there's a primer somewhere, but that "to do" list is too long to wade through it. So, I'll give you the bullet points of how I got started. I found it was pretty easy actually.

1. I read a friend's "blog" to see how her newly covered dining room chairs turned out. In the corner was an option to "Create Blog." I clicked it.

2. I had to set up a G-mail account.

3. I went back to the "Create Blog" set up and followed the instructions.

4. That brought me here.

Hopefully future content will be more resourceful. But, for now, first dilemma solved!
