{ My blog on TV }

Yes, my blog was on my tv and yours could be on yours too, did you know that?

I'm always amazed at technology and what it brings us in this day and age, it's like there is never enough and there's always something more being invented and tweaked here and there.

I was surprised when I found out that you can use internet through your Wii.

Now I'm sure some of you already knew this and are probably laughing at me, but for those that are not up to speed, like mw, let me show you how easy it is and pretty soon you too will be seeing your own blog on the tv and grinning from ear to ear. It's the small things.

First thing though, it's free so don't worry about having to spend any money on this.

Just go to your Wii menu, then click on the Shopping Channel. Once that comes up, click on Wii Channels and scroll down to the Internet Channel. Again, I promise, it's free.

Follow the directions to download it, it's quick and easy.

Once that is up, you can just click on the WWW button and enter any website address. Like your blog or even YouTube. Just try it.

It's not as great as doing it on the computer, mainly because instead of a keyboard you have to use the Wii control to enter every letter, but it's pretty neat, you can google, you can go to facebook, your blog, watch YouTube videos etc.

Just remember to have your Wii connected to the internet. *giggle*

I don't want you to try this and then come back and yell at me because it didn't work.

Now I'm off to watch the new Sense and Sensibility (2008) version. I hear the Jane Austen fans are buzzing about how this is the best version and their favorite of all time. It's peeked my interest and I'm dying to see it, I'll let you know all about it tomorrow.

Here's the trailer:

Thanks! :)

Giggle.. You can get your Netflix movies through your Wii too. Just have to order the software from Netflix. I like how the blogs on tv look so big. I saw mine one day and was like wow you can see all the pores in my babys face. Since I don't post pictures of myself much.

It is a great feature isn't it? Have you tried netflix through the Wii yet?
