I clicked classic this time and seem to have converted to blocks? I really don’t know what I’m doing, but as with my art I am learning….
so anyway I’ve added a few recent drawings and experiments to see what a collage page looks like. The “this page has been left blank intentionally is to signify the blank stare I had when I clicked the wrong button.
oddly it wont let me upload any new images, just the ones I’ve already used,,, hmmm….
WordPress, it’s like looking in a mirror with your face obscured. You can see it’s there, but you can’t work out what is going on! I tried to update a post that I might have published, or might have been a draft, and I ended up in one of those endless loops, where you don’t know where anything is? I found myself being told the post was empty, that it was a local draft. That I needed to go to a preview rather than editing the post. Then I was told again the post was empty… Feels like fighting with bureaucracy. Not knowing what the other side knows, only what you suspect….. Anyway it eventually posted… I think!
Like WordPress, Facebook is changing. There pages are being changed and from September they are closing their ‘classic’ version.
I feel like giving up. Social media takes up too much time anyway. This is ‘nudging’ me away from it….
Imagine, you have learned to drive on the left hand side of the road, you have always driven on the left. When you get to a roundabout you drive into it and go round it clockwise.
Now, suddenly, you are informed you have to drive on the right, drive counter clockwise round roundabouts. You have to drive at 70 miles an hour on minor roads, and 30 on motorways. No training! No question about what you might like. Imposed!
Thank you. Please change the rules for chess and monopoly too. That’s what you have. Power over us poor plebs who have no say in the matter!
Hitting the wrong buttons again… So for some reason I’ve got this list of categories above. I have no idea how to delete it!
I was going to talk about my digital drawing of a lizard. I’d originally just drawn the background but decided to add this because I liked the idea of camouflage. It was drawn at a now defunct website called sketchfu which closed a long time ago. It had simple tools, but I could draw what I wanted to. Freedom in art is wonderful!
I just wrote a post about submitting my college work because I have been up till 4 am the last couple of nights.
I typed it all up, the college work, then had to convert a PowerPoint presentation to PDF. I rang the college IT section and they explained how, and thank you “smallpdf” website for helping me merge documents…
But WordPress blocks is harder than that , There are more blocks than an alphabet. I typed up some names of them on my first post, but that disappeared. I cant do it all again, too tired.
Anyway my college work got in before the deadline, so i might be here a bit more, but the pleasure has gone out of it….
I think I follow the “volcano” method of working! The important bits I need are near, then everything spreads out around that and spills over. My Pc is covered in prints and there is lots more sitting on the printer. I need a stapler. I’ve managed to wrangle one of the things I’m writing into shape, but I have to use Harvard referencing for the more academic stuff. Help. I’m drowning in it.
I’m trying to create a portfolio of all my images I’ve made so far on my illustration course. I have managed to add them to a Word document, but I need to know what the file size is and as I’m not up to speed with Word 10 I’m not sure where to look. If the file size is too big I will struggle to upload it to the college. Any ideas? I know I’ve got to convert it to a PDF but I wanted to find out how big it was before I did that… Duh!
This isn’t a good photo of the picture I was uploading but it shows you what I wanted to add. I am starting a college course and the first task was to upload an image and analyse it. I chose this picture of my gran as I feel a bit overwhelmed. I described myself as an old lady, feeling a bit defeated by technology. I know I will be OK with practice. Practice after all does make perfect. Its a learning process. Once you know how to do a thing (like driving), it clicks. The skill goes from one part if your brain to another, and you get to know what buttons to press. It’s just a struggle sometimes to pick up. And I’ve come to the conclusion, I don’t like Windows 10.
