Good Friday. No school for me today. No work for the Mr. either. And Mr. B let us sleep in until 8:00. Woo hoo! Of course, that means I am slow getting a post up today. I should have done it last night, but I have a good reason for missing.
One of my birthday presents is a blog makeover/redesign by Design Girl. I was excited until I realized how many decisions I had to make that I would have to live with for a year or so. I am a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of girl. If I don't like something, I'll change it. I tend to evolve as I go. And now I have to decide on colors, themes, and any special features that I want to have her include. Scary!
My major problem came when I tried to pin down exactly what this blog is about. I'm not sure she designs for a blog about...well, nothing! The blog name "Easy Street" isn't all that helpful either. I chose that name for my small town, for the leisure I enjoy, and even for the fact that it is pretty much all inclusive: anything goes! And frequently, that is what I post about-- darn near anything.
It is easier to list what this blog is not about: fashion, cooking (God forbid!), crafting, parenting, politics, or health.
See my problem? So I tried to look at what I write about: school, teaching, small town life, our tornado, the Mr., the girls, my stroke, and now Baxter the Shih Poo Pup. OK. And what do I love? Books, writing, coffee, music, champagne, biking, movies, and teenagers. *sigh* I am getting nowhere.
Design Girl has her work cut out for her. See all that random nothingness above? Yep. I just sent it to her. Now, I am pouring through photos to find pictures of my beloved Midwest, the neighborhood, and the family.
Redesigning my blog means no time for blogging. Now that is a conundrum isn't it?
The redesign is supposed to take about 3 to 4 weeks. Care to put any money on that? Poor Design Girl.
