Young women today have certainly come a long way since the Women’s Movement of the 60’s. They hold important jobs, receive equal pay, and don’t have to make a choice between family or a career. They can travel far and wide and do wonderful things. But there’s one place where women haven’t progressed at all. In fact, they taken several steps backward as far the time and money they must devote to their physical appearance.
50 years ago, a woman who wore black eyeliner, false eyelashes, fake fingernails, 4 shades of eye shadow , rouge and dangling earrings was probably in the theater or the world’s oldest profession. Most everyone else wore a bit of foundation, possibly some eyebrow pencil, a dab of lipstick, and off they went.

Should You Start A Blog if you are #over #eighty? Especially if you hadn’t used a computer until your were #fifty and never took an #Information Technology class in your life? I’m beginning to wonder. I thought I had done fairly well, publishing three books with #Kindle and #Create Space all on my own in the past 3 years. I have #twitter and #facebook accounts. But this #Blogger thing is really throwing me for a loop. I don’t understand all the gadgets in the layout section, don’t know if I should be on Google+ or Blogger, not sure if I have the right settings. To add to my frustration, I called the computer lab at our local library for help and they said no one there knows anything about Blogger!
To make matters worse, I inadvertently posted something that violated some boundary on google, so that post got deleted, and now my page views have gone down. I’m sure I’ve clicked the wrong button somewhere while I was trying to find out what happened.
I finally got another email from the library that they would try and help me figure it out if I wanted to set up an appointment. Also, waiting for a book I ordered from #Amazon called #Blogging for #Dummies. (that sounds about right for me). So, I guess I’ll just keep on trying for awhile, at least until I’ve torn out all of my hair.

If you read my profile, you will see that I’ve published a few books, myself, so I know how much effort goes into producing 600+ pages. Unfortunately for seniors, heavy hardcover books can leave you with sore fingers and achy shoulders, depending on the severity of your arthritis.
