Okay, all of my reading on how to create a blogroll was useless. I managed to finally do it by randomly pointing and clicking and saying to myself.... "what's the worst that could happen?" Proof yet again to self that technology is sometimes best learnt by taking risks and not being taught... mind you that depends on the type of learner one is... Now I just have to go back and change my colour scheme again because I don't want to try and change the colour of my blogrolls now that I successfully added them.

Hi Elisa,

Like me, do you feel you have to "unlearn" things, particularly the expectation that a tool will be harder to use than it really is? That's how I feel with the Web 2.0 tools I have tried.

I know you were frustrated with the blogroll creation, as was I! But now that you have it figured out, doesn't it feel empowering? Thanks for your advice, it seriously helped me over that hurdle!

I think these comments really highlight the collaborative potential for Web 2.0--people communicating with others and sharing ideas (and sometimes frustrations and successes!). I think that's what makes Web 2.0 so exciting!
