Wow! Some of the blogs I have been reading recently are incredibly beautiful.
I’m not just referencing the content, which is so amazing to be sure. So much variety – including uproariously funny, richly informative, and deeply soulful. But also the design. I aspire!
My blog at present is quite basic. I like it. I used a WordPress template. But I want to improve the look of it in addition to the focus. I write about such a crazy variety of topics, but I’m seeing that many blogs are set up to manage this, like this beautiful and informative blog by Amanda Isberg.
I want that Wordle thing.
I want the licensing thing.
I want the variety of buttons and information too.
But I didn’t stop with that. I seem to jump in with both feet when I start something, and blogging is no exception. I also signed on for the March Slice of Life Challenge, committing to posting on my blog every day for 31 days. I’m on day four here. These people feel like my people. They’re encouraging me to write and publish on my blog. They comment, and give me feedback that builds me up and it’s keeping me going.
I’m kind of excited about all the links I was able to add to this post. I think I’m overusing them at this point, and I’m sure I’ll calm down about it now that I’ve figured out how to use them. They are really cool though, right?
I’ll leave you with this: I’ve been thinking about possible blog titles. So far, I haven’t narrowed it down but here are some possibilities.
Snap, Spring, Sparkle
Stretch, Share, Sparkle:
Be Brave, Be Certain, Be You
Anchors and Reflections: On life and learning along the way
Engage, Act, Reflect
Stop, Sit, Write.
Read, Write, Reflect
Bloom, Break, Be
Listen, Learn, Love
Listen First, Write Later
Break It In
Seems I like things in threes, doesn’t it? Which one do you like? I haven’t quite settled on one of these, maybe the right one is still out there. Blog on!
