When one of us came up with the idea to start a blog for us all Dandelions, we were all excited. This despite the fact almost all of us never blog before. I mean, how hard can it be…turns up..very very hard. Saggie (also a first timer) had a ridiculously fun time in literally dragging Madame through the whole blog maze …
Madame : Hi Saggie
Saggie : Hi Madame..
Madame : How to join the group blog….I’m clueless as usual
Saggie : Me as well clueless
At this point..we we were still ok..thinking how hard can it be right ? You type, you edit..and you post…
Madame: What draft this people talking about?
Saggie : My 1st draft
Madame : Woo Hoo…managed to set up my acct. You?
Saggie : Yep…finish my first draft too hahaha
Saggie : Go there..and click dashboard..top left corner of the screen
Saggie : There you see others works and also start your own
Madame : go where?
Hmmm…go where..at this point I started to play with my hair..stand by mode to pull what ever left of them…
Saggie : ok.ok, have they sent you mail yet
Madame : yep
Saggie : ok..open the mail, you can see two links there in the mail..yes?
Madame : the one where u set u your word press profile?
Hair pulling ..commence…(at this moment all the smileys Madam sent to Saggie are not really helping…)
Saggie : no..no…the mail they sent after you set the password and the username
Madame : yep…..activated it already by typing in my password. Then another screen comes up with word press….and the dandelions blog is listed there. is that it?
Saggie : click that, click on dandelions
Madame : clicked on the home page now
Madame : and…?
Saggie : click dashboard, ..top left hand corner
Madame : yep…all done and ???
Saggie : are you in dashboard ?
Madame : yes i am. I see 1 post, 2 drafts 🙂
Saggie : ok..you in, the 2 drafts are mine and Barbie’s, write away madame
Madame : how to read what u wrote, Saggie? cant seem to click on it
Running out of hair to pull…pulling my beards now..
Saggie : Go to Posts and then click on mine..
Madame : cant seem to click on it. why, why, why????
Saggie : which page you are now?
Madame : posts-manage posts
Saggie : ok ok, go back to dashboard, then click drafts
Madame : ok…hold on 🙂
I am running out of things to hold on to…
Madame : ok went to dashboard, clicked on the 2 drafts and????
Saggie : you can see the 2 drafts yes?
Madame : yep
Saggie: click on them to read
You know the old saying..it aint over until the fat lady sings ?….
Madame : errrr…..still trying to change my display name to Madame. Cant seem to do that either…sigh…I’m totally hopeless ;)…i definitely need to change the display name…..I tell you….this whole thing is stressing me out…totally 😀
After few more maneuvering, she managed to changed her name …
And then it continues
Madame : Just uploaded my pic…what do u think? 🙂
Saggie : hang on..on the way, I cannot see..This is gonna be a long night hahahaha
Madame : hold on trying to decide which part to crop
I love pain..and I came back for more..

Madame : all done! u shud see it soooooon 😉 how to write about me????
Saggie : You just start a new post..save it as draft after..Barbie will post it for you
