Learning to use a website
So here I am, on my deck on a wonderful Monday evening. The weather is warm. The air is great. The gnats are a little pesty, but since it's only the second day I've used my deck this spring(and the first evening use I've gotten) I'm willing to overlook their annoyance, as I play on my computer.
This evening, I'm working on learning more about the Coalfield Writers website.
I have to confess, that altough I LOVE technology, and I am amazed at how much information is available to me in this amazing Internet age, I am intimidated by this website.
Peggie (our tech liasion extrodinairre, keeps telling me that this new drupal based web site is easy to use, and for me to just jump in. But the truth is I'm so worried about perfection that I just don't do anything on my own. That's not like me, in general, but it's the truth of my current brain status.
I want this website to be so much: a repository for our satellite's growning body of knowledge, a record of our satellite's growth, a place where our TCs can stay connected to our on-going community, a face for outsiders who may not know the work of the satellite, or who want to know what kind of programs we can offer to teachers and students.
It's because I see such POWER in on-line communication tools that I am intimidated by this site.
But as of tonight, this moment, I am taking back my power and I am going to learn this stuff. If I make a mistake so be it. Peggie will just have to help me undo it!
