Give ‘Em The Old Razzle Dazzle

Notice anything different about my blog this week? Seriously? You didn’t? You must be blind! I mean…how can you not miss it?

Okay…maybe not blind because it’s possible you really are blind and then I would be horribly offending you. So disregard the whole blind comment. Never happened.


Anyways…the blog has new, clean look that I think is much easier to read and navigate. Maybe it’s just my opinion, and frankly, that’s all that matters, so go stuff your head in a toilet and let the water flush around your ears for a bit. Then come back and continue enjoying my writing.

In all honesty, I really was struggling with the other designs. They just weren’t working for me. Some were clunky. Some were unorganized. This last one was just too much, too busy. I can’t handle that. So I changed it. And I’ll probably change it again in the future if this one eventually bugs me, too. But I’m hoping I don’t do that. It gets tiresome trying to re-adjust everything on my blog to the new themes. Not to mention I’m sure I confuse my readers. Ah hahahahahaha! You discovered my evil, diabolical plot!

Um, not really.

I tend to get bored after a while. Call it ADD, unfocused, too much passion, too much energy, too much sugar and caffeine, considering I’m drinking my second 16 oz. mug of coffee…Panama coffee no less which is much stronger, but oh so smooth! If you’ve never tried it before, you must. But I digress.

I had an epiphany of sorts this week. I think. As I’ve said before…my path is never quick and easy. More often than not, I’m meandering off the path to smell the roses, admire the butterflies, gaze at the sun and before I know it, I’m on a totally different path in a different forest in a different damn country. I suppose that’s the fodder for the imagination of a writer and artist (God bless my parents – I’m sure they never had it easy with me).

Back to the epiphany. You’ll discover after some time of following me here that I tend to have multiple epiphanies and you’ll want to smack me upside the head for taking so long to realize things when you knew it right from the start. I’d appreciate you telling me, you know. It would save a lot of tired, aching feet and fingers from the wandering.

BUT. Back to the epiphany. AGAIN. I’m a writer. Duh. You know that. And this blog is about writing. Again, you know that. Or at least I think you do. But my epiphany was that I’ve gotten too serious here. Where’s the fun? The pizzazz? The sparkle? The razzle-dazzle? I’m sure you get the point.

Just because I’m a writer doesn’t mean that I always have to write about writing. Really? I can hear the laughter. It’s okay. I laughed at myself, too. I have so many passions (hence the multiple blog problem which, thankfully, I’ve worked out…for now), how can I limit myself to just one topic? I can’t. So I won’t. Lucky you.

Don’t worry my writerly friends…I won’t forget you and there will still be plenty of tips and tricks and writerly discussions. But there will be a heck of a whole lot else, too. Like the foodie bits. I am a closet chef you know. It’s a burning desire to share with you the things I cook, create, and eat. Food porn. Now there’s something to go Google. I dare you.

So here’s to letting it all hang out!

  1. I just tweaked my blog theme last night. Nothing drastic, just changed my color scheme. I’m a fan of clean space and easy to read text. I have a hard time with themes that sport white text on dark backgrounds. They give me a headache if I try to read too much of them. So clean and simple works for me. 🙂
