Technologically Challenged

Hey, I am making progress.....yesterday I bid for the first time and last night I made my first ever eBay purchase! Ok, I have to fess up, my son helped me with the whole Pay Pal thing but I am still excited, I am making leaps and bounds in this computer world (ok, maybe not leaps and bounds but definitely baby steps).

Way to go on the ebay purchase! I didn't really learn how to do the whole ebay thing until Jeff showed me awhile back! So don't worry...you aren't the only one :)!

Have a great day!

OHHH! It's so addicting. What did you buy? When I get the highest bid in the end, I always yell out, "I won!" My hubby says it's not really winning...I suppose technically it's not. If I really won it, then I wouldn't have to pay, huh?

It's all downhill from here, you'll be buying all your neccessities online now. You'll never have to leave your house again! Ha Ha!

You're one ahead of me Chris. I've never bid on anything on ebay. Have tried to check the price out on a couple of things. When you get to be the pro I know you will you can teach me!!!

Good for you!! The whole computer thing is annoying at times, I swear my computer does things and is laughing at me for not being able to figure it out! I have bought on E-bay before, not in a long time. Be careful it can be addicting!! Is that not crazy that we have to ask our kids how to work these things!!

Thanks for answering my questions. I'm glad you don't use the electric prods, I think they are cruel and abusive. Some of the horse pulling people use them here and I think it is disgusting and cruel. No wonder my little rescue pony is so skittish when first harnessed up to the cart, he's probably waiting to be zapped with a prod! I'd like to use the electic prod on the people that use it one the poor animals!!!!

Ebay is so awesome. I find tons of stuff on there and cheap stuff mind you!! I think I have purchased over 500 things...from perfume to clothes to shoes. (That isn't just for myself.) LOVE IT!!

Way to go Frazzled Farm Wife!

Good for you! I remember feeling like I had really accomplished something when I figured out Pay Pal the first time. Of course, it can be a dangerous skill to have! :-)

Once I accidently bid 1000.00 for one I meant 10.00. The panic was horrific, and after a few frantic emails all was cleared up. So I am a little cautious but I do continue to use it!!!!

ebay is what got me started on the computer. I couldn't just sit down and play, had to have something "real" to do. So I started selling on ebay but I'm still technologically challenged. My daughter had to help me get started and if I have problems, she has to help!!

Coach J said...

oh, oh, I {heart} ebay!!! Beware: it is addicting--just like blogging! :)
Congrats to you!

Good for you! Everything we learn and do really is done by baby steps! I'm right there with you on the technology. I get so thrilled over each and every little progress I make!
