The Inaugural Post!!

I imagine several of you, knowing what today is, have been thinking as you go about your day, I wonder how Belinda is doing with her new laptop? You probably pictured me tearing open the box, pulling out the slim new piece of equipment, opening it up for the first time…

Oh, get over myself. If any of you remembered, thank you. One or two of you maybe had a nagging thought today was important for some reason, and rolled your eyes when you remembered why.

But if you’re wondering, yes, it’s exciting! After I get this posted I plan to download a few things I rely on, connect to Google Drive, and a few other “fun” things. I still have to figure out how to get some things done, but I am certain I have the option to do them.

One thing that is disappointing. The space bar on this keyboard is a bit sticky. Let’s hope that’s a minor adjustment.

This post was almost subtitled Get It Over With, and part if the reason why is the frustration of learning a new keyboard. It’s inefficient. That’s the nice way to put it.

Also, it is a bit troublesome that I keep getting a message to sign up for Office 365. I am signed up for Office 365. Shouldn’t that automatically be recognized with my Outlook account? Hmm…

But the screen resolution is good, which I’m very pleased about, and it isn’t as disconcerting working with the much smaller screen as I thought it might be.

I was lucky when my computer crashed, and I know it. I was able to replace it rather quickly. I’m grateful for the timing of this situation, the extra work I’ve been getting, and my brother’s help.

And the support of the blogging community. Back to blogging as I know and love it!

  1. You are so funny. Yes, I remembered today was laptop day for you….and then I yawned and got over it. 😀
    Truly, I am happy you have it and hope you get the kinks worked out. New is always hard, isn’t it? Have fun!

  2. I did remember Thursday was the “big day!” So now you have a blog about movie screens and computer screens (my attempt at a pun).
    Honestly, I’m learning from your experience and trying to figure out what I’d do if my computer crashed. I have a lot of back ups, but just setting up everything again sounds daunting. You did it so gracefully!
    I’m sure you will love it even more as the quirks are worked out. So happy for you even though it was an expensive investment.

    1. Judy, be sure everything you have is backed up! I believe in using both cloud services and flash drives. It’s taking a long time to get everything back from the clouds. The bookmarks are a loss… I could have had an account with Firefox, but I didn’t. I do miss my desktop but so grateful for what I do have.
