I need for you to dig around in your brain and offer up some advice and ideas to snazzy up this here blog. It needs some pizazz, some funkaliciousness...some kind of something to help it better reflect the mind and spirit of the wackadoodle typing these words!
The look, the feel -the visual vibe -isn't working for me. I'm feeling a whirlwind of change beginning in my toes and working its way up my to my fingers, but my Creativity meter is running on empty.
Change is in the wind and I want to ride that jet stream! What do you say, want to come along?
First and foremost, I really think I need a new name. I know, I know...some of you have told me before (the last time I got this wild hair) to stick with it. But, honestly, This n That was something I thought up as I filled out the Blogger form to start this whole roller coaster adventure. I'm not in love with it, I'm not married to it...it's sort of like a ball and chain now. "I'm sorry, Blog...I don't mean to be so harsh, it's just...well...this isn't working for me anymore. It's me, not you."
What? Like you don't talk to your blog...
If you Google 'This and That' or even 'This n That', you'll see oodles of hits. There are several other blogs out there with the same (or nearish) title.
I thought of _ Chocolate In My Keyboard_ or possibly even _Is That a Cookie in My Keyboard?_. Both more unique, a little more like me...but...are they?
And also, do I want to switch to Wordpress? Will that give me more flexibility with different pages? I want to have a page for my Wordless Wednesday posts and a page to discuss books and another to showcase my dazzling *snort* flash fiction stories.
Yes, I CAN do that with Blogger. However, Blogger won't allow me to do what my vision says I must do. One HAS to listen to ones vision, doesn't one? The vision must be appeased!! And fonts...my vision needs keyooot fonts! Why can't I have jokerman or something scrolly and ornate? I want to create visual art with my words!
O.k. I might need to dial back the crazy. But...you DO get what I mean, right?
Do I defect to Wordpress? Will that give me the sort of totalitarian dictatorship that I seek in my blog dynamic?
Do I change my name? If so, got any ideas? If I pick your idea, I'll send you something fabulous. Well, at least I think it is fabulous. Or, I will...once I figure out what it will be.
What do you say, folks? Those of you who've been reading me for awhile, who know my humor/mind/heart/imagination are the best choice of brains to pick! Brraaaiiinnnnzzzzz....I need them!
I'll be waiting anxiously for your ideas to come pouring in via comments or private email. All the offers to help my blog live up to its potential, despite my driving the keyboard!
