Another day, another attempt to cram more crap into my brain

I spent half of my day at work actually doing my job and the other half trying to figure out how to have a blog. I think I have read a million Help files today. But I still don't know how to blogroll.
I suppose I should be patient with myself because I am trying to build pathways in my mind that have never existed before. Imagine, people over a certain age grew up without computers. I only dreamed of doing some of this marvelous stuff when I was younger.
When I was 22, I was writing a MA thesis on an electric typewriter. I had done all of my research by reading actual books. It all sounds pretty primative now. As I was doing this work I knew there had to be an easier way. There were "Word Processors" but they were attached to some mainframe computer that took up a whole floor of a building. And only certain people were allowed to use them. It took another 12 years for me to be exposed to the joys of Word and Excel etc.
I was amazed when VCRs and CDs were created. Its easy to watch movies and listen to music.
I watched as PCs became real but I was not computer literate until 1996. I was 35 years old! My neices and nephews where tiny children then so I guess I have had as much experience with computers as they do. Funny.
So family, how do you do a blogroll??? Help!!

You should be able to add a list of links to the sidebar of your blog in the "Customize" section of Blogger. You can also sign up for Google Reader to aggregate the feeds for all of the blogs you like to read in one place. But as far as a list of blogs, you can put that in your sidebar.

Thanks Joseph--you da man. I will let my brain recover from sorting out filter part #s for every car since the invention of the wheel and then make another attempt.
