Anticipating Comments...


5 minutes - go!

I'm silly with myself a lot, when I opened my blog this morning I said, "Hey who turned the light on and where's all my stuff?"

This is a new blog design. I’m going for a newspaper/magazine feel. I was anticipating what my readers would have to say about it. I know I shouldn’t get all worked up about it, because it is my space, but I still want people to like it. 

You know that feeling when you get a drastic haircut and didn’t tell anybody you were going to do it. You go in to work and someone gasps, “You got your haircut!” and then they don’t say anything else. Kinda makes you paranoid. But then you finally get someone to say, “I love your hair!” and it’s all better. They might not be telling the truth but that’s all you needed to make you feel better about it right?

As pretty as my last page was - yes I’m tooting my horn - it really wasn’t me. I was emulating a blog look and it was like borrowing a Hawaii Five-O shirt when I only wear earth tones. 

Times up.

But I thought of a better analogy. You know how it is when you see people without make-up and you’re kind of shocked? They don’t look bad, just different, and a little plain. I get that.

Here’s the thing... I don’t wear make-up.  Well okay, a little eye-liner and lip-gloss but that’s it.


Today’s theme is Anticipation

  • Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.
