Those of us who use the internet have had some changes thrust upon us recently, that perhaps we didn't want, as we were quite happy, thank you very much, bumbling along in our own sweet ways!
First there was Timeline on facebook, and then there was the new Blogger interface. Oh, I despaired. I didn't want these changes - BUT, I have to say that I am now loving the new Timeline on facebook, and the photos come out so much better than before. I resisted and resisted on going over to the new interface on Blogger and then, one day, I woke up, and there it was. It had been changed for me! Guess what, after a few days of touring round the site, I now love it! It is so much cleaner than the old one, and I can still update my header photo very quickly, which is what I was really worried about!
I see now that you can actually revert back to the old Blogger, but, you know what, I'm going to stay with the new one! I admit that I was having problems with it originally, but when my son-in-law (I should call him" son-in-love" as a couple of my other bloggy friends call their daughter or son in laws, for he certainly is that, and we couldn't wish for anyone better to have come into our family all those years ago.) was here a couple of weeks ago, he set it up so that I now get to my blog using Google Chrome, and it is so much easier, and I think it's quicker as well.
What does all this tell us? Perhaps that we should embrace all these changes that come our way, and not get stuck into a rut. I love keeping up with all that is happening with new technology, and my theory is that it's got to be keeping my brain active by learning all these new things. (Mind you, my family might disagree with me on that one! Hee Hee!).

What do you think my friends? Do you kick against change, or are you quite happy to go along with the new?
The keener eyed amongst you might notice that I have slightly changed the layout of my Blog, in that I only have one sidebar now. I don't know whether that's less distracting for you when reading my posts, or whether it doesn't really make any difference!
