Several months ago, when we bought our new Mac, 2.0 wondered aloud if we’d ‘still be able to get google on the new computer?’ Technologically savvy, he ain’t. Thus, recent changes to my blog have been a bit unsettling for him.
2.0: (staring at the computer screen) Well, your blog looks exactly the same to me.
movita: That’s because you’re not on my new blog.
2.0: What? How am I supposed to find it?
movita: Um, click the link that takes you there.
2.0: Oh… (scanning the page for the link)
movita: Right here.
2.0: Oh my god! Your blog totally different! (pausing) What’s this? What the…
movita: That’s the post that tells people not to freak out about the new blog format.
2.0: (after reading the post) I can’t find the comments!
movita: They are right there. At the top of the post.
2.0: Are those the ones for this writing? Or the writing below?
movita: This writing.
2.0: It won’t work! It won’t work!
movita: Just hover over it and click.
2.0: I am. I’m clicking a lot! It’s not working!
movita: Over the blue number. Click the blue number.
2.0: Got it… hey! Here are the comments!
(pausing to read)
2.0: Wait. I can’t get back. I can’t get back!
movita: Well, you could just hit the back button. Or click on the home page button. Or click banner at the top.
2.0: It’s okay. I got back.
(pausing to read some more)
2.0: Where are the popular posts? I can’t find them!
movita: Why don’t you type ‘popular posts’ in the search box?
2.0: (typing ‘popular’ into the URL bar) Here?
movita: No. Where it says ‘search.’
2.0: Here? (typing on a new page)
movita: No. That’s google. For the love of…
2.0: Found ’em!
