The Renaissance Woman

When you open an on line store you find out the meaning of renaissance woman. You become a web designer,photographer,ups shipper,blogger,marketing consultant and so much more.
I'm learning everything from scratch. I didn't know anything more about the computer than how to read my email and check my horoscope!
It is exciting but if I am really honest ,it can be overwhelming.
I spent 3 hours in Picasa today trying to put together a slideshow. Still no slide show! It is such a great feeling when you finally understand a process.I look forward to that feeling in regard to the slideshow!
After an afternoon of frustration it is good to remind myself that all the things I am learning now will be with me for the rest of my life. Never again will I be computer illiterate.
I like to be good at things right off the bat, I am learning that slow and steady progress is lasting.
If you are working on your store YOU ARE IN MY PRAYERS!
I won't let the feeling of being overwhelmed stop me. I'll just keep moving forward(the cursing has reached a new level LOL) Once again let me say,

Lilli, I am right behind you. I didnt even own a computer until last May. Then I looked at it scared for about a month. You are right, its such a great sense of accomplishment when you figure something out. Its not like my art projects, they can be trying, but I know what I am doing, but this new computer frontier I new NOTHING and I am also self taught. Its nice to know your smart, huh? lol Happy creating, gail

I have been a MMPer for 2 years now and every day I learn something new and when I do I am so darn proud of myself. I had no clue how to run a website when I began and every day was exhausting, but exciting. Two years later and I just when I think there's nothing more to know, new things happen and everything changes again.

It is wonderful and exciting all at once. Remember to try to get some sleep at night. I don't think I slept for the first 9 months I was so excited.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Lilli, I'm right there with you! I am still hoping to reach Renaissance Woman status. I seem to have a perpetual blue cloud around me when I'm on the computer! (Where did I learn all these words??lol) I say we have a celebration when we both feel a bit more proficient!!
