Tomorrow I am starting the 1o-day blog makeover. This was something I discovered over on Daniela Uslan’s website, which I discovered via a great writer’s board on Pinterest. I’ve found out that Pinterest has some very juicy links to writing articles, and inspirational writing quotes. I have a whole board over on Pinterest, if you’d ever like to check it out. It’s so much fun adding more and more writing pins!
I’m not sure what Daniela’s 10-day makeover involves, because it doesn’t start until tomorrow. But I am excited and scared! You may have noticed that I recently changed the theme of this blog twice. This is because I’ve been trying to figure out a new look for it in 2016. Not only that, but I want the overall look of the blog to be…just right.
I know “just right” is vague. I want this blog to feel like a writing blog, but I also want it to be colorful and fun. I find that a lot of themes out there related to writing are boring. They are colorless and just seem to have typewriters all over them. Yes, writing blogs are text-focused, but…I like pictures, too. They inspire me, make me laugh, and make a post exciting. A post with JUST text is not something I usually do.
I wanted to pick a more colorful theme for this blog besides this one, but…the more colorful ones were TOO colorful, TOO specific, such as mandalas, or children’s toys, etc. – they weren’t appropriate for this blog. And the ones that DID have nifty fonts or whatnot, were just the blah background, colorless ones. It’s hard to find a balance!
Perhaps if this site ever becomes a dot-com sort of thing, then I can hire an amazing graphic artist, such as a couple friends of mine, to make the site super snazzy.
Anyway for now, we’ll see what myself combined with Daniela Uslan’s 10-day makeover can do! Woohoo! I’m sure it will be great! She really knows her stuff.
Also, another announcement:
Starting this week, I am going to be reading The Artist’s Way again! I have the first post, on Chapter 1, scheduled for Friday. But I might just post it sooner, because I’m so excited about reading this book again! I might do a pre-reading post about it…tomorrow, haha!
Until next time,
