Hi Everyone,

I wanted to tell you a story about my journey learning how to use my computer. Have you ever felt that you just don't have the skills to learn your computer and its applications? Have you ever been so frustrated with your computer that you just want to throw it out the window?

That was me too. As I began to play around with the internet at first it was just surfing around and looking at sites. Whenever I came upon a beautiful web page; and saw all of the unique applications the web designer put onto his page I would feel really bad because I didn't feel I had the skills to do those things even though I really had great ideas.

Then I decided to really go through an in-depth study of my computer based on what I wanted to do online. I really wanted to post blogs about important information. I really wanted to be able to share links to other sites, and I really wanted to use video format to express myself online.

I didn't have time to go back to school so I decided to write a book using pictorial examples that explained each instruction. Subject: Introduction to Using Your Computer, the Basics
