Overwhelmed, excited prickles
Getting into “pickles”
Can’t find the proper apps
Oh no , my lock’s on caps
First love is to create
but set-up just can’t wait
I want the perfect style
It’s gonna take a while
Push publish on the run
Still I feel undone
A comment just came in
It ended with a grin
I rack my brain for prose
Sincere as all of those.
Please don’t think me dumb
This process has me numb
I hit the button send
Before I reach the end
I’m finally in the pink
You send a foreign link
Frustration makes me click
Hey, that made blogging quick
People are so nice
They add the perfect spice
This is one messy gruel
But,blogging’s really cool
I know I’ve made a friend
MY newby time will end
They never called me lame
Treat newby’s all the same
I’ll help all that I can
Newby? Take my hand 🙂

Well that was cute. I’m sure we all have been through this. Everyone starts somewhere. I remember expecting meaner comments when I started. XD

You definitely are not a Lame Dame! Such a frantic piece but so true. Have a Great Day!
My time online is limited.
I guess frantic is a great word for it!
What a very sweet little poem! And I am not even 2 months old! Thank you for the smile.
HE HE, when you put it that way,I too am an infant 😉
You’ve summed the experience up so well.
I’m still trying to figure certain aspects out. It’s a ton of fun though!
Peace to you,
I have so much to learn!
Wish I could spend more time at it.
I look for your posts after reading a lot of “heavy” poems (or writing them, as I tend to do). You lighten my mood and I’m still having a heck of a time figuring blog things out. The perils of an old lady newbie. :0)
Mine is here:
So pleased that I am a jack-in-the-pulpit among the roses, this is my desire:-)
Your entry is my favorite of the Thursday Rally!
I smiled while reading your poem. I think your words hold truth for all of us.
Giving smiles is my mission…Susan
How nice! I felt like this was written just for me
“Overwhelmed, excited prickles” says it all
Your entry was FANTASTIC!
Thanks for sharing this.
I will share it with my female friends 🙂
We all have been a newbie- isn’t it? I still am for one.. there’s a freshness in being one..:)
Take my Hand- it couldn’t be any better Sweetheart. I can’t Thank enough for coming across and reading your words.. Thank you for sharing this one- excellent way with words..
Susan, Hugs always..
Susan, this one’s mine.. BTW your Blogname- “sillyfrog” always makes me smile.. Your stopping by at my blog- It just livens me up..
This comment made my heart soar…so happy to offer smiles to the world. Never could stand those frowns 😉
Oh, I am sure the newbies (and the oldies with some memory) will appreciate and enjoy this, Susan. I used to “decorate” and “redecorate” until I finally found a look I liked. I hid behind posting recipes for a long time, because I couldn’t get entirely comfortable posting poems…
You’re doing really well, Susan. And the poem is perfect … almost a tribute to the newbie.

You are one of my greatest inspirations!
That was simply fantastic!! Great poem, I felt myself fumbling over the keyboard and deleting things by accident as I read your words…I’m a newbie blogger!!
