Being dragged kicking and screaming

Blogger has some new features, a whole lot of them on the back end.  I hate new features.  It's bad enough that the site I used to edit photos was purchased and shut down by Google, but coupled with Blogger, I'm feeling overwhelmed with the unfamiliar ground that change has me standing on.  I still have a Blackberry because I don't want to learn how to use an iPhone. Truth.  It has taken me several hours on Sunday and then a whole lot of hours tonight just to figure out how to change my template.  It's like learning the alphabet all over again.  I used to speak this language, but now? Not at all. That red font of the post title and comments? It's going to have to stay that way until I can figure out how to change the color.  The photo in the masthead? Over an hour to figure out how to crop it and add the text.  I'm not afraid of change, not at all, but I like my tools to work how I'm used to them working.  Darn progress is getting in my way.

I'm not a huge fan of change either, but it is excellent exercise for the brain at our age. :)

As for phones, I was dragged kicking and screaming away from my Palm Pilot phone (Palm doesn't even make a phone anymore). I found happiness with one on Virgin Mobile (Richard Branson loves me), as I refuse to get an iPhone (though we do have several iPods in our house).
