Get Ready for the New Year!

2015Next week, I’ll post four holiday activities that will get your computers and technology ready for the blitz of writing you’ll swear to accomplish in your New Year resolutions. Here’s what you’ll get:

  1. Is Your Online Presence Up to Date?
  2. Back up and Image your computer
  3. 13 Ways to Speed Up Your Computer

Join me! You’ll come away feeling ready, re-energized, and geeky.

  1. All the things I should know how to do – and don’t. I have to admit, I lean heavily on a brilliant son who makes it possible for me to be an idiot. But I’m looking forward to reading this year’s installment and seeing if I can do any of what you suggest.


  2. After years of using my computer without actually knowing how it works, a recent scare has set me straight. I’m enrolling in a set of classes to teach me more than “getting by.” I loathe it, but it is the tool of my trade. I sharpen and maintain my gardening tools, I should do at least as much for my hardware and software.

    (Still, I hardly think of this as “holiday activities.”)
