it's another language!

It's a whole new country out there with its own language. Mr. Linky, technerati, meme, links, feeds and too many more to keep track of. I think I mastered Flickr today and then went to Big Huge Labs to create a mosaic for next Monday. I am going to master linking. I may need a "dummie" book for this which is why I have Amazon Prime!

Before I started blogging I was a quilter. I have always taken pictures particularly in the summer. But I also had the sewing machine up and running and would make 2 or 3 quilt tops. This summer it has not happened. Everywhere I go I have my camera. Everything I see is a shot. Poor Jack.

I posted my first Mosaic Monday this week and was overwhelmed by the response. The blogging I do is for my own personal satisfaction and for sharing with friends and family. By participating in a blogging event, I expanded my audience (a big step for me) and it was very gratifying.

I did not link back to the Little Red House because I didn't know how!

I think I have figured it out now .

Now I need to learn how to link some of my past posts to my current post. I like to visit a blog and then at the end there will be some smaller pictures. Above them it will say "you might also like these". Clicking on a picture takes you to another of this person's blog. This is a good way to explore a blog.

There is so much to learn and keep up with, isn't there?! But it is so much fun to meet new people!

Thanks so much for stopping by Rose Cottage Gardens and Farm. I truly appreciate your visit.

Have a good week!

Hi Carol!

I see you have learned to link to another blog --good job! This computer stuff is daunting. I recently found out I was mis-pronouncing "meme" --my daughter kindly pointed that out. I knew I reached a new phase of motherhood when my girls started patting me on the head and thinking I'm cute.

Next week we expect a Tablescape from you! It doesn't have to be elaborate -- Mary often does a one-setting scape, and so do I. In fact, I hope to have one up in a little while if I can get my dogs to be content with a short walk.

Carol-I found you through Cass! I understand what you mean! I have only been blogging since February. I have learned a lot, but there is so much to learn. You will find people in the Land of Blog very willing to help! I am impressed that you have conquered the mosaic! Good luck and keep at it!

Hi Carol -- I see I sent another blogger your way; that's what's so much fun about this!

As for the "Antiques are Green" button -- very easy! On the right side of my blog, there is a list of "Ways to Fritter Away Time" with links to other sites. One of them: New England Antiques Journal. Click on that, and on the first page of the Journal, is the downloadable button. Easy!

Thanks for visiting... come back! (and enjoy Maine. My husband is a Massachusetts boy)
