MAC illiterate

Okay so I imported all my photos from my recent shoots onto an iMac I just purchased specifically for my photography....but how come I can't seem to figure out how to edit properly let alone post my pictures onto my blog! Its driving me crazy! I suppose there are commands that I'm suppose to use because on my Mac I don't have the options to publish my post like on my PC..or maybe there is and I just don't see it. So if you a mac user and can help a sistah out plz let me know. Also my gmail account no longer loads onto my Mac which is strange because it did in the beginning but no longer. So I'm learning to adjust with the Mac, and am finding just how accustomed I was to my PC...but nevertheless this is yet just another hurdle to get over in order for my work flow to improve. I must say though, I love the huge screen and viewing my pictures on there. What was I thinking settling for a 17in screen when there is a 24 in out there. The huge screen makes working on the computer so much fun! So as of right now until I can figure out how to post my pictures from my Mac, they will have to wait until I get back from WPPI! I seriously can't wait to get out there...but on the same note I'm already missing my family even more. What am I going to do with myself for 7 days without my kids.....all I can say is that I'm up for a photography overload and hope that WPPI will keep me so busy that it won't even feel like I was gone for a week. I can't even sleep due to all the buzz, and can't wait to meet so many out there. I will work on learning more about my imac so that by next week I can post the pictures for Sione's 30th Bday bash, more studio shots, and then the reggae concert featuring the Mana Poly Allstars! MGM here I come.....I also scored a penthouse suite at the MGM which I can't wait to enjoy....you will die when you hear how much I am paying for it and how I got it. I will be sure to share how living frugal can be so fabulous! I will try to share what I learn each day from WPPI and all the people I meet. Til' tomorrow, I shall post again from the suite! Mind you I think this is the first time I've ever stayed in a penthouse. Viva Vegas!

Ronnie, when you hear how I got the penthouse you will just die! I will post pixs soon and share how the fab dig came my way:)

Sepa, you should totally be here with me. Today is the opening reception and I have to admit I did see many at the airport with their camera bags...photographers? or tourists carring really nice cameras? I have yet to really meet anyone but am looking forward to putting my network skillz to the test tonight!
