<strong>"VOF Week 3: (HAVENT BEEN CAUGHT THIS WEEK)."</strong>"

This week, it has been great knowing the secret for so much goodness in Websites. I have always wondered why my postings are never the same when I post them online.
I do them on a word document then paste them online (talk about being innovative. Yea right! But it does not work in the least) and yet there are no tools to bold or underline.

With my first assignments it felt awkward having all texts, whether topics or bullet points all collate together. But, oh dear! I felt as though I were writing a thesis. The first time, I tried to use control key plus the letter B (shortcut for bolding when using Microsoft word). It of course backfired right on my face. I remember doing the same with italicizing… You know the result.

This week has been quite busy. Keeping up with other bloggers is a challenge due to such a busy working environment. Further, I have to study at a local University in the evenings, after work; and I get home late. So I have to try and nap less, awaking before the morning cock crows, hoping my husband will not wake up; tip-toeing to the study (after nicking the laptop from his bag) truly, it’s breaking the rules of no studying in the morning. Fortunately, I have not been caught this week. He doesn’t understand why I have to blogg so early, and yet I coaxed him not to carry work to the house. Well, he agreed, but with it came a lot of patience on my part. Luckily, I have not been caught yet. Thank heavens!

So now I know that there are somewhat formulas to this. Truly amazing! I think that I will share this with friends and colleagues so that they can learn how to manoeuvre and emphasize their issues or point when blogging. I also plan to do the next assignment as soon as it is up. I won’t wait till later. I’m also saving up to buy my own laptop. The one at work is too heavy to carry about. That way, I can blog during traffic. Which is becoming crazier by the day, at least here in Kenya. I’m not surprised about the reports that over 500 new vehicles are purchased in a month…or is it every week. Yet the roads are the same. Can somebody plan to expand them? Anybody? Ok here ends my complaining.
I also need to put off an hour daily to ensure I’m meeting more people. I need to network. I wish muself all the best as I resolve to be a better blogger. Yeee! Hooray to me.
