I am not technically savvy. That said I have learned how to blog, Facebook and tweet and I enjoy doing all of it, but when it comes to real internet skills, I often struggle and kick and moan as learning new things seems to take much longer than it should! I was so grateful last week when a friend and colleague who is a professional video producer and web designer offered me some of her valuable time to help me learn what I needed to make some videos to add to my website. What I realized is that when we aren’t skilled in something, having someone hold our hand and show us the ropes can make the task much less daunting.
I am thrilled to share a very short video from my Powell’s Book Launch in November. It was actually kind of fun to make and there will surely be more. Alas, with the right assistance even an old dog can learn new tricks. Enjoy.

Congratulations Linda! Great little video and it’s always nice to learn something new that we’ve never done before. It’s good for us–and VERY good for our brain. When I created my own blog from scratch using WordPress it felt like I was learning a new language! And now that it’s working and I feel pretty comfortable with it–there is so much satisfaction. How can we ever know what we are capable of if we don’t try?
What’s the old saying, “When you stop growing you start dying.” I guess it applies to learning how to make videos too 🙂 Thanks for the comment.
