I have often said of myself that I missed out on some secret Girl Training classes that “they” had.
I don’t love makeup. My face care routine consists of soap and water, cocoa butter moisturizer, Burt’s Bees Lip Balm, Pink Lipstick. Mascara on Sunday. That’s it.
And shopping. Hate it. I go in, get what I need, leave. No dilly-dallying around looking at this and that.
So when today’s blog challenge was to check out other themes than the one that I had originally picked, well, I was not happy. It was akin to going bikini shopping in a dressing room with bad lighting. Ugh.
But I did it. In fact, I overdid it. Check out and preview five different themes? Ha! I spit upon your five themes! I will check out and preview 20! Ha!
I quickly discovered several things about my blog preferences. I want my own header, my own chicken who I dearly loved, and I don’t want the title of my blog plastered across the center of her pretty chicken face. Crossing out multiple possibilities of themes and moving on.
Also, even though I had originally chosen Yoko theme, I discovered that I really liked a two column appearance. Simple, clean, less distracting.
I was temporarily infatuated with Little Story and Flora and Fauna but then I saw they weren’t free. Oh *cough* sorry, blogging, I don’t love you that much.
I even toyed with the idea of doing a Cutest Blog On The Block design, like I had done a few years back on blogger, but I’m trying to keep it simple here.
I’ll try it out for a while and see if I like it. Frankly, I see my dashboard more than the blog, but I’m trying to represent something about myself in this choice, I think.
I want to clear away the clutter and keep it clean.
Works for me.
