Computer Headaches

This stuff is driving me crazy! If I had any hair, I'd be pulling it out! I haven't posted for a couple of days because I'm trying to figure out all this web page stuff. This is not something I thought, even a few months ago, that I would need to learn. Maybe I should have learned it before I started actually blogging.

This is what I'm trying to do... I want to have three separate blogs: this one, a travel one, and a "quilts for sale" one. That part is not hard, thanks to Google's easy blogging set-up.  The thing that's making me crazy is that I want to have a web page with my domain name - a home page, I guess - and on this web page, I want to put links to the three blogs. 

I already own the domain name. I just have to learn how to put it all together. As you can see, I've got books and notes spread out all over my desk. I've been making notes for days! It seems that Google wanted my domain name to be the address to this blog. But then I couldn't figure out how to get the others, which Google doesn't know about yet, to be able to use it.

I am making progress, but all my time has been going into this instead of the blog itself. A friend suggested that I buy a program or hire it done. I guess I'm stubborn. I want to be able to do it myself.

When I get really frustrated, I remind myself that I am challenging my brain to keep it strong and working well for many more years to come. The old "use it or lose it" idea. I am also working to improve my Spanish, studying beginning French, and challenging myself daily with Lumosity. If learning new things really does hold off dementia, I think I should have it covered this week.
