Fear Conquered - almost

Well, I joined Socktoberfest. (OHHHH, verrrrry scarrrry.) I'm a sock knitter, so whatever, right? But now I need to decide about joining Flickr. Am I brave enough for that, too? Does anyone have any advice for me?

I guess I'm feeling a little gun shy because since I've become a blogger, some strange things have started happening to my computer. Little viruses have started appearing. Adware has become more and more menacing. Although my DH is a computer whiz and keeps on top of most of the latest threats to technology (he's an electrical engineer, after all), we've had a few snafu's that have caused some major consternation in the household. All this has transpired because his little lady has launched out and gotten internet brave without becoming completely internet saavy.

So, if anyone out there can tell me if it's just a coincidence that these new attacks have started since I started blogging and surfing other blogs and that joining Flickr to participate more fully with Socktoberfest won't send my computer crashing into the pit of oblivion for all eternity, I'd appreciate it. This timid little blogger is in need of some big time encouragement to come out of her internet shell. HELP!

I've had a few worm attacks since I signed on to sitemeter, but that's been about it. Those were snagged pretty handily thanks to my anitvirus program and hasn't been a problem at all. I like Flickr for photo storage and organization but have found it to be cumbersome at times. Overall, though, I'd give it a thumbs up.
