Blogging 101: Day Seven – Changing Direction

While going through the blogging 101 challenges, I have really started to think about my blog.  About what I post and how its related to what my image is.  This is who I am right?

However, I find myself thinking about what I post now to what I thought I was going to be posting when I singed up.  I still really like ‘Life in the passenger’s seat’, but it was really for showing of my travel photos.  I’m not doing that as much as I thought I would.  Thats ok.

What I’m thinking about is a change of face.  I’m finding I enjoy posting about my cooking adventures and while I have not posted on my crafting loves, I have photographed some of it with the intent to share.  I just wasn’t sure if it would fit in with what I was currently doing.

I have been playing around with different themes and names and tags and what I want and who I am and… and… and I’m overloaded!  🙂

I want to cook and craft, and review and just ramble. Yea, thats what I want.  So, soon I will have a make over and probably a new name, just not a new face.

Blogging 101 (Zero to Hero): Day Five

Blogging 101: Love Your Theme

Under Construction

Under Construction


So today I get to use the ‘web page under construction’ image.  Wow how retro.  Be that as it may, I am looking at different themes as part of todays assignment.

Hehehe you won’t see much, but be assured it will happen.  So I have looked at several themes as well as looking at some of those themes in active use to see how the customization differs from personality to personality.  I ask you what it is it, even if it is just one tiny thing, that drew you to your theme?

Blogging 101 (Zero to Hero): Day Three

Today’s assignment: write the post that was on your mind when you decided to start a blog.

A growing desire to talk to other people in other places. To exchange ideas and views. To share information.  I’m not a hermit or a recluse, but I’m not “social butterfly”.  I want this to be one of the balances.

I really do have something to say and someone somewhere will find interest in it even if I don’t think so at times. I have so much to learn… and share.

Blogging 101 (Zero to Hero): Day Two

So I am really trying to take a hard look at whether my title and tag-line really reflect who I am. So I would ask that you all bear with me over the next few days, a week, as I play around with it.

Blogging 101 (Zero to Hero): Day One

An introduction to me:

I’m sitting here thinking on how I want to make an introduction post and that I would re-read the original ‘about me’ I wrote last July.  I’m still that person, but there is more.

While I started this blog to show off my experiments in phone camera photography, I find myself posting about my becoming gluten-free and the differences between commercially available foods and cooking/baking your own.   I have also started reviewing GF foods and asking my friends to tell me what they think about something so I can post it as well. This is a new direction I would like to take with this blog as well as my fanciful photography.

What I did not mention was that I had started this blog as a ways of writing down my feelings or whatever was happening with me.  I did this instead of a journal because I knew that I would not write in a journal.  I was, and still am, hoping that communicating with a live audience will motivate me to be more productive and responsive.

So, I’m going to add a new paragraph to my ‘about me’ page because I have discovered that the ride is happening, but the vesicle is life itself.

I hope you continue to enjoy the ride.
