Blogger arrested for fly-tipping

Today is a bad day. Today is a “throw your computer in the bin and sulk for the entire afternoon” day.
Okay, so I know yesterday I vowed to stop being such a hater. But I can’t help it. I HATE technology! And more than that, I HATE when I don’t know how to use it.
I spent the entire two hours of Frog’s nap this afternoon trying to work out how to add a Facebook “like” button to my blog.  (Did I mention this took me two hours?!).  This was after spending the entire one hour of her nap this morning setting up a Facebook page for said blog.
Well, the Facebook page is finally up and running (I know, I know, it’s easy to do, but I’m technically challenged, Okay?) but the illusive “like” button is not. It is nowhere to be seen.  So I am now less popular than a fart in a lift and currently only have two “likes” on my page.  And one of those is from a good friend, so doesn’t even count. Even my own mother doesn’t “like” my Facebook blog page (granted, she isn’t on Facebook, but even so…)
So, if you never hear from me again, please assume I have succumbed to one of the following:
a)      Jumped into the nearest canal after losing my mind with rage at Facebook and all technology in general.
b)      Given up blogging and all online pursuits in favour of the good old fashioned carrier pigeon and letter in a bottle.
c)      Broken the law and been arrested for fly tipping after throwing my computer into the nearest field full of cow muck.

Of course, you could save me from all of the above if you just “like” my new Facebook page. If I get at least 5 “likes” by tomorrow, maybe I’ll reconsider the carrier pigeon. Thanking you in advance. The End.

Please save me from this pigeon

  1. I liked your page BTW 🙂 If you have anymore trouble uploading your box in the widgets I’ll email you some screen capture to help.
    Keep trying, it is worth it 🙂

  2. I have so gotta get me a FB page too, but also suffer from techno-phobia and anticipate having the same struggle as you! I only just got myself on Twitter this week, that’s how 20th Century I am! xxx

    • We can be techno-phobes together, I only joined the Twitter revolution a couple of weeks ago. It’s OK once you get the hang of it. Bit tricky at first though. Let me know when you join – there’s a great blog post I used by another mum on BMB which helped me lots. x

  3. I liked you!! The button is there. Phew, no pigeon (they do make a bit of a mess you know.)
    Anyhow love the blog, it always cheers me up 🙂

  4. I had this exact same thing this week (and I used to work in Dell Tech Support!). I now have my page too but have not received any likes from the blogging community including you…please remedy immediately or I shall have to ‘dislike’ you. Thank you.
