Blog Update

It’s a good thing I really enjoy working with computers because that’s how I seem to be spending most of my time these days.  The Palm Creek computer club has kept me hopping!  We have 90+ registered members and over 70 are showing up each week at our Wednesday morning meetings.  I believe it’s because we struggle to keep up with today’s modern technology and our children, grandchildren, and peers are prodding us into the cyber world.  I learn new things every time I turn on this wondrous machine. 

Example:  My recent discovery was how to label all my blog posts with key word tags thus making a “Search by Subject” available.  If you scroll down to just below the counter on the right side of this page, you’ll see the new “Search by Subject” area which allows readers to zone in on the subject they find of interest.  I’m still working on that (in my spare time) so will be adding more subjects as time goes by.  Another new feature added to blogger:  You’ll find a section called “Popular Posts”.  Blogger counts how many hits each post has received and can sort them by popularity. 

Blogs are becoming quite popular.  Be sure to check out the different Palm Creek clubs that are now creating their own blog to keep in better communication with their members.
