Today's prompt for the blogging course was about setting goals. It was a timely topic. One of my goals for the last year and a half is to learn how to use the external flash Tracy gave me for Christmas two years ago. I've tried it a few times, but it all seemed overwhelming, and even with a book, I haven't put the necessary time into learning how to use it. With the holidays approaching, it would be very nice to have a good flash to use. So weeks ago I signed up for an adult ed class at a local school called "Abstract Flash and Lighting." It takes place tonight, so maybe by tomorrow I'll have some idea where to start.
Another goal I've had on my list is to learn how to round corners so I can switch the photos in my blog banner without relying on my son-in-law and his Photoshop skills. Just this morning Cathy Zielske posted a video using Photoshop Elements 8 demonstrating how to do this. No more excuses. I can figure this out! Hopefully, by the end of the week, there will be a new blog banner. (I also have to figure out how to change it!) Last night I managed to reorganize and clean up the side bar of the blog and add a Shelfari widget to the left column. It's too bad it takes a class to get me moving!!!
