HTML, Templates, Webpage Design Dumb!

I previously wrote a blog on the learning process, I thought it was a pretty decent blog for a beginner and when I wrote it I realized I am still and always will be in the learning process. Learning something new everyday is exciting and sometimes lots of fun. And then there are days when we try to learn something and we just do not get it. Now those days are frustrating!! Am I right?

I am so trying to learn HTML, webpage design and templates and I must say I am completely dumb in this area!! I can't seem to figure it out no matter how I try or how long I try. I have finally come to realize maybe I am just not capable of learning this stuff, and admit I am HTML,template and webpage design DUMB!! Okay I admit I am a little slow in this area but I am determined not to give up!!

Not giving up. I am going to not give up on learning all of this. I am going to be brave and ask for help, research the internet(though the pages I came up with only made my confusion worse) and hit the book stores. So one day when just maybe you see a new blog template you will know I have learned something because I did not give up!

I know this is a lame blog but I just spent 1.5 hours on my website trying to add a picture/banner to my site and couldn't figure it out!! Plus the other day I tried to add a new template here it didn't work. And I tried to add an auction template at ebay and forget it!
So I admit my flaws and I will learn it one day...just watch!

Hi there!

I subscribed to your blog awhile back (because I'm a tart and candle addict too!) and thought I'd finally say hello. :)

I have been blogging for about 10 years and I'm STILL learning. I know most of the important stuff, all of which I taught myself.

Consider it as a little blessing in disguise. Once you figure out how to redesign your blog, you'll want to change it all the time...at least that's what I seem to do. =D

With time (and lots of patience!) you'll start to learn this stuff. From the sounds of your determination, you'll get it in no time! If you ever really get stumped and need some help, feel free to email me: elizabeth [at] thesavvysahm.com and I'll try to help as best I can.

Good luck!!

It's so frustrating to not understand how something works. I feel dumb every time I get near a computer. I swore I'd not be like my mother who couldn't figure out how to turn on the VCR! However....

I feel the same way, it takes me so long to learn this stuff. I found this blog:

http://howtoblogdesign.blogspot.com/

and learned how to add a siggy to my posts and to add a third column. It actually turned out to be fun!

I bought blogging for dummies and read from cover to cover and still didn't learn as much as I had hoped. It's fun and frustrating at the same time.

I have an Award for you on my blog stop by when you can and pick it up.
I hope you are having a great weekend!

Tanya said...

I thought of doing something like this. But I quickly realized that I just don't have the patience for it.

Good Luck though:0)

I am right there with you! All the information out on the internet is incredible and a lot of it is junk. I found that if there is something I really like on another's blog, I contact them and ask them questions. Most bloggers are more than willing to help and it makes it easier to get to the good stuff!

Good luck!

I'm still in the learning process of blogging too! It drives me nuts on how little I know! If I ask a guestion to a fellow blogger they tend to help, some of them just don't know the answer.
I'm here to follow you thru the MBC!
