Blogger Insanity


What is the matter with me? For the life of me I can not figure it out! Lord knows, I've tried!
I can pat my head and rub my stomach at the same time. I can drive a truck and talk on a cell phone at the same time. Hell, I can even stand up and pee, but for the life of me I can not figure out HTML code. God, who invented this stuff? What does all this stuff mean <>{:;/}[]$? It is driving me insane. Insane I tell you! I know (html code) is a foul wretched creature sent from Satan to drive me insane, three attempts to even get this post done. I'm done, I give up, I'm finished, I'm going to pour myself a glass of wine, kick back and do some visiting with you guys.

When you figure it out PLEASE let me know - I even went out and bought HTML for Dummies and I am still lost...

Jamie said...

If you need some help, just let me know. I know some basic HTML (Brian knows a bit more than I do)

Hope you get it soon!

Oh Stephen, HTML code is as easy as picking up Cantonese. I learned both a Mary Wong's HTML and Cantonese Band Camp last summer.

這網站提供學習廣東話(粵語)的資料,以現代香港年青一輩及海外華僑所用的日常會話為基礎。

lol @ jetboy.

Enjoy the wine buddy. Somedays blogger rejects my posts for a syntax error in the HTML code. For the life of me I can never find it so I start again.

Just steal it from everybody else's blog. Hit source code under the View drop down menu and highlight, copy and paste to your blog.

I've gotten the hang of some of it and this helped:

Definitely know the feeling... and the need for wine in those situations LOL

In my cse it definitely is "a little learning is a dangerous thing" :)

I am the Queen of F*%&ING EVERYTHNG...OK!! said...

I felt the same about the codes and had trouble just getting the links to work ...so you have done far better than I evr did. By the way , Jamie sent me over the play..........

Kelly said...

I took two classes on HTML and still do not get it...so I just get help from a co-worker for things i don't know...breaking into the wine shortly for the grammys...wahoo...enjoy!

I hear ya Stephen.
It's all freakin greekin to me too.

I took one course on HTML a few years ago. Things are so much different now. But sometimes I can figure it out. Happy to help, anyway I can.

Derek said...

I'm right with you, but i'm confident I'll learn, I'm new to blogger. We'll get it.

Mr. Brian said...

LOL....The frustration is certainly understandable. And templated are very easy to screw up. I did post a couple HTML tutorial links on my sidebar, though, that might come in handy. Stevesite is the simplest tutorial to understand.

Hey Stephen. I agree - HTML code is far to weird for me. It reminds me too much of high school math, so lets not go there. Math was certainly not my strongest subject. A buddy tried to explain this code stuff and left me more in the dark. For now, I'll leave things be. Have a great weekend. CTG :-)

Spencer said...

I am so glad I gave blogging up I really am I feel like I just kicked a drug habit. Anyway good luck still read ya!

Rob said...

My dear boy - I think we all can relate, believe me. From time to time, I just feel the need to scream (at the computer), curse at Blogger, throw a tantrum and then eat some Ben and Jerry's (or drink some alcohol). It really makes me feel better...then I take a deep breath, think of something happy (like you - awwwww)...and get back to it. Hope to see you back it again soon. Luv you buddy. Have a fantastic weekend!

Stephen said...

Hey guys, it is nice to know I'm not alone in this insanity (html code) hopefully I will figure it out. A big thank-you to each of you that offered and provided some links to help in my endeavors, I will attempt to conquear this beast again, in a few days. Love you all!
