I spent forty five minutes today trying to chose a theme for my blog. I had no idea this is going to be so difficult. There is a plethora of blogs online, and each has a theme. All of them look much more professional than mine. In a way, selection of the blog theme reflects how well one understands oneself and knows what one wants. That’s a lot of ones… If this is true, then I don’t understand myself at all. I don’t know whether I prefer Hemingway Press, Kelly, Widely or Adele. What do I want from the blog theme, after all? Apparently I want something vague and amorphous, which I can’t describe even to myself. How everyone else deals with it, is a mystery to me. I even subscribed for a two week course from Word Press on how to create blogs, and today’s assignment was to create a post and insert a video or image content. I have to confess, I had no idea what image or video I would like to insert. For that matter, I had to read another part of the tutorial about how to insert one. Finally I settled on The Thinker. Bravo, Captain Obvious! Mission accomplished, I guess.
Let’s see how long this new theme, romantically titled Adele, will live in my Den. So far I like it more than the others, bar the dainty round bubbles at the top. I must figure out how to remove them. At least I know what I don’t like, which is already a progress, no?
