I’ve got this theory.
I believe that many writers who buy computers do so because they feel they have to and not because they really want to.
Having bought their computer they’re shown how to turn it on/off, send emails and use Internet Explorer. Maybe they’ve also been shown how to use a word processor. Next, they’re being told they simply must join Twitter and Facebook or what ever the latest and greatest social networking tool is; and then there’s blogs. Every writer should have a blog, right?
In my opinion, it’s too easy to become overwhelmed by all the advice and instruction. Even writers who’ve had computers for a while find they’re still learning things. That’s the ever changing nature of IT, that is.
With that in mind, I’ve created this website. I’ll keep things relatively simple but I’m going to assume that if you found this site, you know the basics of computer use. Nothing I talk about is particularly complicated so everyone should be able to keep up.
I’ll look at the various aspects of computer stuff and try to explain it in a way that allows you to understand what’s going on and make up your own mind if it’s useful to you. If there’s something in particular you’d like to know that you can’t find or I haven’t covered yet, you can get in touch here.
Although I’ll try to keep it aimed at writers, much of what you find will be useful for anyone who isn’t really “techie”. If I’ve done my job right, at least some it should be useful to some of you.
Don’t forget, you can subscribe via the buttons at the top of the page and have updates sent to you via email if you wish. That way you won’t miss a thing.
For now though, go and explore the rest of the site.
Hope you enjoy it.
