Just between you and me...I think Blogger, Internet Explorer, and Word all have a few control issues and perfectionist tendencies. And if anyone is qualified to make such a diagnosis...it's me. Forget that I neither have a degree in psychology or more than 11 grams worth of technical prowess. I'm basing my pedigree on a well known fact I learned in the second grade: "It takes one to know one." I first heard that phrase from a little boy in a green and white striped Garanimal shirt, who was defending himself from an accusation coming from a little boy garbed in OshKosh overalls; but I'm sure Freud coined it first. Freud could probably also explain why such useless details such as the clothing choices of my grade school classmates remain in my mind today.
Through my technical trials I have learned that the only way that my posts on Becoming Me can be read by everyone, regardless of browser choice, is for me to write and publish them in only this font size and by using the blogger template (no cutting and pasting). This creates some editing challenges for me...I'm working on it. I promise.
However, other blogs seem to be able to post my writings using cut and paste techniques. Today you can read thoughts by me at both 5 Minutes for Faith and Ask Wifey.
When "Wifey" (AKA Lorraine Sanabira Robertson, a nationally published freelance writer, author, public relations consultant, blogger, and radio/television personality) asked me to participate in her blog advice series Wive's Words, I felt unqualified for the task.
I certainly did not want to tell her no. This is a woman whom I respect and consider a friend. Yet, I felt I owed her honesty, so I agreed to answer her interview questions, but sent her a disclaimer with my acceptance. I do not remember my exact phrasing, but I think the words "I'm not a very good wife" were included. Wifey responded to my disclaimer with words of encouragement.
If you are interested in some honest mariatal advice written by an imperfect wife who relies heavily upon her perfect Saviour, please visit Ask Wifey to read my thoughts. Wifey's blog has also been a part of my "must read" list since last March, so if you have room in your feeder, I definitely recommend that you add her blog to it.
