DP; “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” When was the last time that sentence accurately described your life?
Actually…. TODAY. I set up to a journey of making my ideas (yay!) become reality in the other side of the screen through a device known as “photo editor”. I say its name whispering, with fear in my eyes. Other people whisper about it too, you can hear it in the dark streets in the night… All I wanted to do is transfer the happiness of my thoughts and images into a language I now see I can’t compete with. I don’t know it, and it’s more complicated than Klingon or Naavi (language in Avatar). Photo editors bring to you something you were not aware existed in this life and you can’t get your idea (nope, you can’t) realised if you don’t follow the rules. Evil little things. Eeeeevil.
Writing is easy, blogging and photographing and sharing and caring (cuz it rhymes) is easy.
But…. Oh, I get frustrated with technical stuff, oh I do… 😡
I just don’t get Photoshop. There, I said it. I don’t know if I am stupid or something but layers confuse me, all those options confuse me. It seems to take FOREVER what I can do in any online quick editor in 10 minutes. Jeeeesh.
I have a Facebook page for this blog, opened since September first, and that page is starting to hate me, I know it. I have spent more than 3 hours (THREE!) making my cover and profile pic today because I have so many ideas which make me all happy and giggly and they need to materialize in this world. And now I am not satisfied. Of course I’m not. I found this online Photoshop and I got these pics through God knows how many changes to make them slightly resemble to my vision. Tired.
“Well, why don’t you let someone else do it, then Ivy?” you may ask, smart reader. I DID. And I waited. And waited. And waited. Yes, person who supposed to do this, why you make me wait so I have to use Paint???
Life is not fair to me. 😉
I just want to reach in with my hand sometimes and get that bloody cursor to do what I want!

Do you have a FB page? How do you manage it with your blog, do you share posts or more stuff?
How are you in this department, are you a tech-savvy person or like me?
