Blogging Basics in August

Introducing Blogging Basics. A blog, short for weblog, is a website in which a person shares his or her personal thoughts, opinions, activities, and experiences. It is an online version of a personal diary or journal. People called bloggers typically blog, or share posts, about whatever interests them. Some people blog about their personal lives, jobs, and families, while others blog about a particular topic or subject of interest such as food, politics, home decorating, health and fitness, sports, or pets. People blog for a variety of reasons such as to share their lives, educate others, and make money. In addition, blogs allow writers to interact with readers known as followers by letting them leave comments about blog posts.

Where in the Tech Are We Going?

Tell Me Something I Don't Know

Pogue's Basics: LifeHave you heard of Pogue's Basics? They're handy little books from David Pogue that fill in all the blanks of what you've learned in your life. One of them is all about technology and has handy tips that even one of our Technology Trainers didn't know. I recently read the one about life, and I'm using several of his tips now on a daily basis. If I wasn't a know-it-all before, I definitely am now!

Tame the Tech

It seems as if kids are born knowing how to tame technology. Many kids can navigate their way around a tablet even if they've never used one. You, meanwhile, would be happy just to get the goofy screen to stop rotating. Don't you wish there was a manual for this stuff? Well, there is.
