Yesterday another blogger, I don’t remember who at the moment, mentioned getting a PEEK review on your blog, by a real person. You just go to the blog and give them you’re blog address and they do a review.
Well, I got the results this morning and the man was not impressed with my blog at all. I changed a couple of things he suggested and am now somewhat depressed. My font Comic Sans is known as a joke font on the internet (I chose it for it’s roundedness.)
He’s not into flowers. My blog is not cohesive. I just share my life and what’s going on in it. (This is not a professional blog, I didn’t intend it to be.)
So, there you have it, the approximately 5 minute review in a nutshell. I’m not a computer geek, or tech savvy by any means, I’m a lady who loves flowers and talks about what is going on in my life.
**Added at 7:24 a.m. est. The guy did say my pictures looked professional and that I must have a good camera, so that was one positive.**
Is this font hard for any of you to read?
I know I jump around from thought to thought, that’s part of who I am. If Mark was here he would tell you that himself.
Thank you for all of my birthday wishes. I had a lovely birthday week.
The water leak is fixed, it was a faulty new piece that cracked, so my B-I-L cut out the section and did it differently. No leak. While waiting the 2 hour time before turning water back on, we ate lunch then did my taxes and I e-filed them.
New belt on washing machine Monday afternoon.
I re-strung the weed-wacker myself and used it yesterday, also mowed and got a load of laundry washed and hung out to dry.
Oh dear, all this boring, mundane stuff in my life.
A Daggerwing butterfly landed on a flower on my shirt the other day while I was walking. That was really neat.
Here is my latest needlework, not perfect by any means and putting it here in my blog is probably another bit of not being cohesive, more like disjointed. this is still a work in progress.
A man would do nothing
if he waited until he could do it so well
that no one could find fault.
John Henry Newman
Use what talent you possess:
the woods would be very silent
if no birds sang except those that sang best.
quoted in The Ladies Repository: A Monthly Periodical, Devoted to Literature, Arts, and Religion, September 1874
The human story does not always unfold like a mathematical calculation on the principle that two and two make four. Sometimes in life they make five or minus three; and sometimes the blackboard topples down in the middle of the sum and leaves the class in disorder and the pedagogue with a black eye. ~Winston Churchill
Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it. ~Salvador Dali
I definitely am not perfect. I am a child of God being perfected. I am still learning new things every day and learning how to make my blog better is part of the process, even if it does bum me out a bit.
Take heart dear folks ~ look for the good and beauteous in each day, and keep learning.
