Who you calling a dinosaur? Not me! Maybe yesterday, but not today. Last night I entered my first chat room. Dinosaurs can’t do that. It was at SavvyAuthors and I was leading a discussion about digital publishing. Well, Melinda led the technical side. She very kindly gave me a practice session the other day so I’d know what to do, and guess what all you other grannies? It was easy. Easy-ish.
My grandsons will be so proud. Or at the least, they won’t be quite as embarrassed at my mid-twentieth century origins. So a run-down of my technical prowess: I have a blog and can post and edit and Tweet it all by myself. And write it, of course. And guest blog on other people’s sites. I can program new phone numbers in my cell phone. I do lots of e-mail. Hmm. That doesn’t sound like much. I can program the microwave oven. Guess I’m reaching now. Oh, I can change the ink cartridge in my printer and I can replace the belt in my vacuum cleaner. I’m failing to impress myself. Sigh.
Anyway, if you haven’t crept into a chat room yet, I’m recommending it. It was fun. SavvyAuthors has a transcript of the discussion on their site.
