At some point during the past couple of weeks, I created the above header here.
Finding new ways to showcase the blog, I am often searching through various themes and trying out new headers. Yes, I am easily bored.
Early on, I noticed that some bloggers did not recommend changes….it might distract from the brand. Well, that could be true, but I am more interested in finding new ways to keep up my own interest…and hopefully, the bloggers who enjoy that about me will continue to visit. LOL.
A couple of days ago, I also changed the theme and look of my website.
I decided on the Hemingway Rewritten theme…it felt appropriate for a writer.
You might think that I am overly fond of that blackboard featured in this header and also in the header above. I even used it at my Serendipity blog. It reminds me of the days I was in elementary school, with teachers who wrote on a blackboard, trying to ignite our passions for learning.
Now that I think of it, though, all that chalk dust…probably not a good thing. Nowadays, I think they use whiteboards.
Here is a glimpse of me, back in the day of blackboards:
I was seven in this photo, and on my birthday that year, the teacher drew a birthday cake on the blackboard, using colored chalk. That was her treat to each birthday child. The cake below reminds me of that birthday cake in chalk.
Do you have special memories from childhood? From your school days? Do you bring those memories forward into your writing and blogging?
Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by.
