What does one do when he is technology challenged to begin with, and then also has multiple sclerosis? He purchases every Dummy book he can get his hands on--in this case, Blogging for Dummies. The end result is a rather dumb looking blog, which either is or is not better than nothing.
A blog, as I am told, is a platform. It is not made of wood, but of words. Herein the author shows himself to be a person of talent and interest to those in high places, garnering the rewards of recognition and forging for himself the next best thing to actual credentials, banking on the notion that one can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time.
It occurs to me (as an aside) that these Dummy books, already so popular, could find a greatly expanded market among those of us with MS. Walking in a Straight Line for People with MS, for instance. Thinking Straight for People with MS. The Dummy's with MS Guide to Remembering the Simplest Things on Earth. And so forth.
Space, the final frontier. The blogosphere. Enter at your own risk. And so I add my voice to the bewildering din.
