I prefer to describe myself as not exactly technologically adept; in all honesty, I’m more able to find my way around webpages and computers (and my iPhone) than I’m likely to admit. There’ some thing about owning your abilities that makes you vulnerable – it raises the bar of expectation. Somewhere along the line I went from designing webpages and converting files with skill and confidence to downplaying my knowledge and ability with technology. I don’t know when exactly that was, but rest assured (I know I do!): setting that expectation low means that I’m never asked to push buttons on highly expensive pieces of equipment without supervision!
And yet, here we are. I’ve spent the free moments of my day (when the kids are quiet, the husband’s occupied elsewhere, and the dogs have given up their quest for attention) putting together this space – creating the environment, if you will. It may not be anything breathtaking or earth-shattering, but it’s clean. Thought-filled. Mine.
I do want to give a shout-out to the folks at KDA Technologies – especially Wes Dean – for preparing this space for me, and for being willing to answer the “desperately screwed up and need help!” phone calls that haven’t happened yet, but probably will…(see the note about expectations above!) There are lots of folks who are incredibly good at the work they do – and when you factor in a desire to help people connect (personally or professionally) – you really won’t find a better group of folks!
And so, with no further ado, here we go!
