Before you continue reading let me explain the name of the site quickly. The name is really an inside joke that my husband and I shared after our first child was born. He made the remark that babies were funny creatures. Since then we will share a laugh when one of us says it, usually about something one of our children has done.
Since then a lot has happened. And I have become active in a variety of different areas that I never dreamed about.
For example this website itself.
I have made a lot of headway learning about technology from this site. When I first came to the decision to pursue a blog I wasn’t even certain what a blog was let along how you actually made one. There were a lot of hurdles to jump until I got things working. I am not what you could call at all technically competent. I didn’t grow up with a smartphone, nor did I even own a dumbphone. Growing up on a farm outside of Columbus, Ohio we didn’t even get a computer until the my final year of high school. While it served me well in college it wasn’t until I started a family of my own that I really started to get a feel for them.
After our daughter was born I stopped working with the intention of returning to work once she was in kindergarten. It was during this time that I came to the idea of Funny Creatures. At least as a platform for me to share my experiences and what I had learned over the time. Unfortunately that didn’t happen. It wasn’t until our son was born that I took a serious look at starting my own website.
At first I wasn’t certain that I would be able to get it to work, but after some trial and a lot of error I finally got something that worked for me.
While I don’t consider myself an expert I have gotten comfortable with the whole process.
