Tech & Creativity Combined

OK, I’m not sure if it’s full “creativity” or not (I have no doubt every tech person on the planet has an opinion), but I’ve spent today figuring out how to share my “big, fun scary” goals.  And, ta da, it’s via a website.  OK, not a big surprise there.  I used “Google Sites” (http://sites.google.com/) which was great for us “non HTML literate” people, especially, like me, where I don’t really want to learn to code any more.  Learned enough to be dangerous and now have a new website that helps me keep an eye on what’s important to me through-out this coming year easily and all in one place.  And the best part is:  I can actually maintain it and keep it current without elaborate tech knowledge or having to have my husband support changes…  Very cool.  So here’s my new website: ajartist.net and I’ve added it as a link to my blog too, under links.  Ohhh, how much more connected can I get?  I’ve started to add some Picasa albums to share my creativity via photos.  I did a lot of creative things this past year and I wish I had photographed everything I made, just as a reminder of things I’ve done.  There’s a lesson learned for me.  Ah well.  Anyway…  And I’ll just keep adding content as my mood allows…  My tech guy husband created a calendar for sharing events with friends so we can plan things to do.  So I’m well on my way to having reminders of my goals and share the adventure!

 

Tomorrow is “back to work” day.  I’ve been off work for the past couple of weeks and I’ve enjoyed it tremendously.  But back for a day, then traveling to Dallas for business.  Dallas in January can be risky, so we’ll hope the weather holds up.

 

Take care.

 

Peace
