I have been SO pleased with the response to my first post about India. Many people have got in touch and been so enthusiastic and positive, and given advice and tips and contacts and charities... But all to my email, so not be be shared. Not many actual comments ..
I can't tell you what a meal I have made over setting up this blog... it has taken ages. Insufficient courage chiefly, and lack of the correct neural pathways to tackle setting the thing up. (Thank you Kim for coming round and we set the thing up in about 10 minutes.) Like so many things that you think are going to frighten the life out of you, it really wasn't so difficult.
Then lots of people were unsure about what to do with the blog ("what do I do with all the boxes and symbols").. and I thought 'Aaah! come on, it really isn't so difficult.' Being such a pro, I decided to write helpful hints on how to comment/follow and help everyone along step by step. But I couldn't do it either.. Now Hayley has been round (she's 21) and showed me how to make it easier.. and hopefully by the time I leave for India (first week in May, date to be confirmed) my neural pathways will be crystal clear and I will be completely cyber-confident.. Otherwise Hayley will have to come too.
Meanwhile.. if you want to comment, go to the bottom of a blog and press 'Comment' and fill in the box. And if you want to follow the blog, go to 'Follow by Email' on the right hand side and fill in the box. Simple.
