"My First Experience In A Faraway Land"
~~My First Experience in A Faraway Land~~
by: Jane Fulton
When I first came on the net, I was so
bewildered! It was as if I had traveled to a
faraway land and everyone spoke a foreign
language. I couldn't understand them and they
couldn't understand me. When I asked for
directions, it didn't help. I didn't understand
enough of the language to communicate properly,
or to understand the directions. I felt so
Well, you either have to learn enough of the
language to manage or go home. Now that you are
faced with that decision, you either take the
easy way out and go home, or find the resources
to help you survive. I became so frustrated, that
I almost took the easy way out and went home more
than once. Then I was blessed to read the right
ad and find the help and support I needed. My
greatest supporter was Brenda Ruple

needed to cry, she was there, when I needed to
yell, she was there.........I don't know what I

difficult it would be until I got started. I had
picked up some of the 'lingo', so I felt that I
could handle this! WRONG! There were days I
emailed question after question to my host. I was
sure that he was getting sick of me asking so
many questions. There were days I cried and said
"Why can't I get this?" There were even days I
did nothing. I took a break!
I would ask questions and the answer I got was no
clearer than the wizards (you know those little
box things that's suppose to guide you through
what you're doing step by step?). I soon found
out that the wizards speak that foreign language
too! I had to read and search out every tutitoral
I could find. Sometimes they didn't help. I would
go to a quite place and think it through.
Sometimes my conclusions were right, sometimes
they weren't, but I was determined not to give
Everyone needs help! I would like to give back
the help that was given to me and I would like
to thank the people who were there for me:
