For my first post, I should mention that I've had a blog before. It was kind of my first website. I posted about my retouching jobs, interests, and photos and stories I wanted to share. Some posts got lots of attention and some did not, as to be expected. The ones that got a lot of attention were some of my most personal ones. It felt liberating to post such deep dark secrets about myself and to receive the response it did, felt empowering.
I left the blog because blogging takes a lot of time. I had just had my second child and had NO time to sit and blog. I reverted to Facebook to post about interests and to reach out to people. Now that I've updated my website and am starting to build a clientele, I'm back on the blog!
So anyway, "Full Speed Ahead!" That has nothing to do with starting a blog. What I have to share is my RAM upgrade today! Woo hoo! I upgraded my OS recently and apparently my computer did not like it. I work on an iMac. It's not new, let's just say that. The new OS needed much more RAM than I had. I have an Apple store nearby. I called them. They said come on down, we have it here in the store. But no, they did not have it there in the store. I've had many good experiences at Apple Stores. This was not one of them. They reverted me to a Macs at work store in a neighboring town. They wanted $240 and wouldn't have it done until end of day tomorrow. So I called my friends at Best Buy and they hooked me up. I am now running at full RAM capacity and only spent $55!
Lesson: If you just upgraded your OS and things are running slowly, check your RAM capacity. Is that obvious? It wasn't to me, but now I know!
That's my woo hoo of the day!:)
