I have been thinking about blogging since last year. It seemed a good idea to have an interest in my run up to retirement. I've always been interested in communicating & believe I have had a modicum of success in doing just that. I've followed a few blogs & it seemed fairly straightforward - what did I have to lose? The answer after struggling with the merits of blogger & wordpress is simple - my sanity. I don't know whether I'm complicating the issue or whether they are just not user friendly or whether I'm just plain stupid? I have spent hours trying to sort out various design problems. In fact I've pored over posts & videos until my eyes hurt & the blog still isn't as I would like it. I have now decided to 'chill out' as they say & do it bit by bit.
