A New Era?

Okay it's been a while. I'm trying something new. I'm dictating this on the Dragon Naturally Speaking program. I don't know about you but I find typing almost as difficult as writing by hand. As a child I was diagnosed with dysgraphia which is a condition that makes it difficult to write. I was given a typewriter to try in alleviate this problem but I soon realized I was as equally useless on a typewriter as I was with a pencil or pen. By high school I'd given up on cursive script and went back to printing. I took a keyboarding class as a result of the new computer curriculum in school space but the teaching style clashed with my style of learning, I don't think I remember passing the class. I only became proficient on a keyboard after getting my own computer and using the chat program. The pressure of trying to respond quickly forced me to finally learn to be a better typist. But composing on a keyboard still difficult for me. That's why my entries in this blog have a tendency to be short and sweet and to the point. Also I figured like myself I tend to not want to read reams and reams of script. My eyes tend to glaze over when I see long-winded blog entries going on for hundreds of words. Many times during the process of crafting a blog entry it has taken days days to get through the editing process of whittling down what I want to say into what I would want to type. Sometimes the process would be to difficult and I would avoid it altogether. Leading to long gaps between blog entries. Like you've might've noticed. So now armed with this brand spanking new technology needed perhaps I could crank out a few more blog entries than ever before. It might take me a while to figure out this program. But I will try to post more often, definitely. So here is to a new era for this blog, hopefully.

Please stand by.
