Keyboard, baby!

Typing a blog post on a tablet is a serious pain in the rear, if you didn't know. Or at least I think so. Maybe I'm old school and I just like a keyboard to type on, like I prefer actually flipping pages in a book to reading on my Kindle (though that thing is damn handy because my vision sucks and I can make the font HUGE lol). Anyway, to each their own and I can see the appeal to exclusively using a touchscreen. For one thing, a tablet by itself is insanely portable, even a 10-inch. But, I HAD to get a keyboard for mine and I FINALLY found one! Yay!

So, that's really all I have to say for now. Just updating to let everyone know that I got a keyboard and therefore I can blog much, much easier now. Also, my harddrive does seem to be fully intact, so hopefully over the next few weeks I'll be able to sort through my files and pick out things I can use for the blog.

I'm thinking of starting a sort of "series," again. Yeah, I know, that's worked so well in the past lol. But, what's different this time is that I have no idea what it will be about. I'm thinking of doing something once or twice a week, maybe summarizing or discussing things I read about. Or maybe three times a week, like one day for Pagan/Witchy topics, one day for "domestic" topics (recipes, organizing, parenting stuff, etc.) and one day for whatever else I want to blog about (electronic cigarettes, books, movies, etc.)

 Meh, I guess we'll see how things go. Hope you've had a great weekend, and that the rest of this week is wonderful, too.

How to Drown a Toshiba and Effectively End Your Ability to Blog

I have no idea how many people read this, if any still do, and I really don't know if any of you follow me on twitter. If you do follow me on twitter, you may have seen my rants about laptop shopping recently. My Toshiba died weeks ago and we still haven't been able to figure out how it happened. My husband was borrowing it while I was busy, he put it down and by the time I got to it (a whopping 30 seconds later) it was soaked. To say that I wasn't happy would be the understatement of the year.

Sure I wanted to replace that piece of crap anyway (wtf happened to Toshiba? They used to make good laptops), but I was thinking more like 6 months from now after researching for a long time. Oh well, I suppose. So I lost most of my passwords with the drowning of the Toshiba, my husband dragged out his Toshiba laptop from 2006 and I searched and searched. I found as laptop I want, but for whatever reason, my desire for a tablet won out, so here I sit, tapping away on a Nexus 10.

I may have recovered most passwords, but unfortunately I haven't been able to access my hard drive to recover my saved-but-not-posted blogs. Soon, though.

 In related news, I'm thinking of starting a tumblr blog. That's a story for another day, though, so if I figure things out, I'll post an update.
