"Technically challenged" takes the plunge!!!

I've been wanting to start a blog for ages but I was so scared. Could I really do it? Who would read it anyways? I have a friend, an "expert" blogger, who has inspired AND helped me to get started so ... here I am!!! Only a few weeks ago I did my first power point presentation also with the help of a friend who knows more than me. I'm not a "solo flight" person, I need people who can help me tackle yet another technical challenge. Sometimes I feel I'm on overload trying to catch up to the latest high tech. I can't believe 10 years has passed since I bought my FIRST computer, something I vowed I wouldn't do. After all I had lived for 16 years without a telephone and frequently endured "brownouts" (power cuts) so I thought I was too "old" to enter the "computer tech world". Now I wonder what life would be like without my computer -email, skype and MSN?
I've learned a lesson as I manevour the IT world - that it's never too late to teach a "not to old dog" new tricks. I'm also thankful for friends who patiently journey with me.
Are you facing any challenges this week?
