Teaching Grandma to Blog (and Grandpa too)

My mother in law got a loptop! I couldn't believe what I heard when I first heard it. For many years, she was very resistant about computers and was adamant that she didn't want to try using a computer. I suppose she changed her mind.

I told my husband the other day that if only I have the time, I want to initiate a part-time job teaching grandparents how to e-mail and blog. I think that's a cool part-time job! It would be so rewarding and fulfilling - teaching the grandmas and grandpas to use e-mail and to blog in order for them to stay in touch with their families, especially grandkids. It's also the best way to use their mind, and meet other seniors from all over the Unites States and from around the world. So, if you're a blogger SAHM who's looking for income, why not put an ad in the paper out teachng seniors how to e-mail and blog.

Oh I really would like to fly over to Connecticut to teach my mother in law how to blog. I think she's be good at it like Millie. And I think she'll enjoy it. She'll meet a lot of new friends on line.
