Ok, is this baby fog or am I just a techno-doofus?

So I had been thinking about writing my own blog for a while. Throughout my first (and now second) lot of maternity leave I had stumbled upon hundreds of these "Mummy Blogs"; Mums posting about their experiences of raising children and a myriad of other interests and thought 'I wouldn't mind doing that'.  Now I know a lot of you will be thinking, "Ah Hello, this is not new, where have you been?" Well this is where I started getting concerned.

Up until a few years ago I considered myself techno-savvy however since attempting to set up my own blog I have had to admit to myself that I have fallen behind (maybe the use of the term 'techno-savvy' should have been the first hint). I started to drown in a sea of host providers, C-Panels, background colours and something called widgets or gadgets. I felt like my brain was going to implode, I started dreaming about how I was going to fix the font colour on the tab bar! I was lost.

"Why does every sentence these days seem to be preceded by a #?" I asked my husband. Obviously since I have never been on Twitter (yes you can see what I mean by lagging behind) this whole world was doing my head in. I was starting to feel like my parents who call me on a weekly basis and say "I can't see my Hotmail anymore, what happened?".

Now I would like to think that I am able to grasp these concepts pretty easily but to be honest I wondered how every Joe Blow out there seemed to be able to figure it out and I couldn't! I spent every spare minute for weeks trying to figure it all out. I would like to blame this brain fart on the sleep deprivation that comes with feeding a 7 month old through the night and watching endless episodes of Peppa Pig with my 22 month old daughter but maybe I really am just a techno-doofus!

So finally after what has felt like months I am writing this first post. Of course I have spent so much time figuring out the bloggersphere that I've had no time to spend on material to post on the blog!!

I do intend to spend some of my spare time (what's that again?!) starting a few long awaited sewing projects and tackling some new sugar-free baking (this is a topic for another time) to actually post on here, so hopefully it won't take another month for me to post again! In the meantime maybe there are some other closeted techno-doofus Mummies out there that can sympathise.
