A Few Changes Around Here…

I actually remembered to check SITS blog the other day, only to come across a post on how not to design your blog. The author talks about how it needs to be obvious what kind of blog one has – I don’t know if I do a good job of that or not but I assume that it’s fairly obvious that this blog is about things I like and my quest to find myself. I thought that I could rearrange things slightly to be more clear about what things I want to share with you lovely readers, as you can see in the menu above:

From that, I realized that I haven’t updated my “About Me” page recently. I decided to combine the “About Me” and “Why This” into one about section so that you can see what this blog is all about in one go. I also added a picture of myself and Mr. Bean, just in case you wanted to know what we look like without going through many, many posts.

As mentioned in the “About” section, the direction I’m moving this blog in is to share my thoughts on life, my adventures with gluten free food and my photography. I then realized that I didn’t have a page summarizing my recipes like many food blogs do and I didn’t have a way to share what I’ve been learning in my photography classes like I do for my Wilton Cake decorating classes. So, I spent a bunch of time and pulled together a bunch of links and created two new pages: One showcasing the recipes on this blog and the other my recent photography.

I also updated my 101 in 1001 List. I have now completed 39 of the 101 tasks – I don’t think I’ll be able to finish all 101, but I think I’ll be happy to complete between 75 – 90 of them. Unless, of course, I change some of them – does anyone know the rules about that?

Have you made some tweaks to your blog recently? What kinds of things would you like to see me write about?

Snow Day!

It’s Snowday in the Blog-o-sphere as hosted by Sabrina!

I would have really liked to have gone skating, cross country skiing or snowshoeing, but I’m too busy in the hot tub. Considering the weather we’ve had recently, I definitely think that I need warming up, like this poor mountain goat!


How are you enjoying your snow day? Check here for some ideas and join in the fun!
