I’m relatively tech savvy: I play – I mean, work – with computers all day, and I even managed to set up my own website recently (ok, WIX did it for me – I just typed stuff in and picked some pretty colours) but I’m getting more and more confused with all the sites I’m using.
I started with Facebook and can get to grips with that, then I discovered twitter, and that was ok. After that came a blog, which took a while to work out, and, most recently, a website. But that’s not all: as an author I get to have a page on Smashwords, another on Amazon, a third on Goodreads, plus Kobo and a host of others I vaguely remember signing up for then doing nothing with. And let’s don’t forget Linkedin: I haven’t learnt how to drive that one, yet, and it doesn’t help that my smartphone won’t play nice with this particular site. They squabble a bit and the phone freezes then goes into sulk mode.
But the final straw is trying to get all these sites to link together, so I’m not uploading the same thing twenty times onto twenty different sites.
And just when I thought everything was working, I have a horrible suspicion that I have provided a link to my local Chinese takeaway. All I can say is, I hope the ‘Fortune Cookie Restaurant’ gets more sales from this particular site than I do!
Fried rice, anyone?
