I’ve now had time to make a few of the rounds and read many bloggers’ follow-ups to BlogHer. Love the photos! But….they bring home the fact that this is a young person’s game. Not that I’m sensitive about my age, or anything. (I’ll be 60 in a week or so.) But, it does make me wonder how many other 60-ish people are out there blogging. Probably more than you’d think. At least, I hope so.
I have this theory that the younger generation just picks up this technology stuff through osmosis…whereas we older folk have to work at it. I used to feel so cutting-edge. When I met my last husband online, our match was so newsworthy that the Dallas Morning News did a color spread on us. Imagine that happening now!
But these days, I am so behind…and getting behinder! I don’t know what a lot of the terms are. I don’t get the “feed” thing and don’t know how to make it a part of my blog (and that apparently ticks some people off). I don’t twitter (although I sorta know what it is). I’m not comfortable with phones that do anything other than make/receive phone calls. I would rather eat worms than lug a laptop on an airplane. I’m just not “with it.” But, I’m having fun, and that counts for a lot Plus, I have a goal now – to one day truly BE the World’s Oldest Living Blogger. All I gotta do is keep breathing.
