via Daily Prompt: Yarn

This is my second day of training at Lynda.com.  I wanted to start a blog, but had no clue about how to go about it, so I’m taking a class on the other tab currently open on my laptop, while I write out this blog post to practice.  Looking around at some of the features of WordPress.com, I found a word of the day challenge.  I looked at the site and thought this would be a helpful tool, so decided to follow up with a post relating to the word for today, which is yarn.   There are no rules other than to use the word to jump start my creative writing.  How fun is that?  If I can figure it out, I’ll attach a link to the challenge, but if I’m not successful right away, I’ll come back and try again.  Hope you enjoy my own personal story of learning about yarn and how to knit.

First Steps

After much consideration and prayer, I have decided to give writing a blog a chance.  This is a big change for me, and a huge leap of faith.  I consider myself a technology dinosaur, so of course, I needed some help.  These first several posts will highlight what I learn from a course I am taking.  I hope any readers who happen by while I’m practicing will bear with me.  Hoping you’ll say a prayer because I’m going to need them.   Godspeed!  Jules
