I finally sat myself down and put a few words together to create my first post!
I have been reading a few different blogs now, off and on, for a few months. After viewing blogs randomly, I came upon At Home In Rome. What got my attention was the header. I loved it! I want to create a unique and expressive header for my blog! It just popped out at me and said, "hello, this is an interesting blog" and guess what, it is indeed. Shelley is a clever, smart girl and I appreciate her writing. Always fresh and original. The posts are intelligent and she has created a unique style. I see an intelligent, go-getter, never give up attitude in the material she writes and shares on her blog. Thanks Shelley.
From there I found bleeding espresso. Here I found "dreamer" (that's what sognatrice means in Italian) and what a pleasure. I have enjoyed the honesty and real quality of this blog. I love the fact she chooses to be positive. I am impressed with how you paint us all a picture of who you are with your writing. You make me laugh. I love your descriptive talent. Your intelligence is reflected in your writing. I love that you are clear when you write. It's as if I can hear your voice when I read your posts. So much fun. She also has an absolutely adorable doggie called Luna Balloona. Thanks Sognatrice.
I want to also point out Chronicles of Me by Boho Girl. This site encouraged the creative side of me which has been lying dormant for too long now. There is a really beautiful, sweet and compassionate soul spilled out here. I like it. Boho girl also has some really great links to fellow friends and there are a few I have also been admiring. The creative juices are flowing! Thanks Boho Girl.
I could go on and on about more great sites and ideas but "sheesh" I'd have to write a novel, and Lord knows I am not prepared, nor equipped to do that. I'm off to begin creating this wonderful journal here on the World Wide Web. I love the internet, it's just plain awesome. I am so inspired. I amazed at the endless possibilities for expression. The ideas bouncing in my head waiting to get out. The idea that a blog can be an outlet for all those "things" I want to express. For some reason I keep hearing Dorothy say, "Lions and tigers and bears, Oh my!" I keep saying, "Blogs and links and creative expression, Oh Yeah!" I am excited to watch this blog grow and enjoy the journey. I just have to remind myself, walk before you run. HA!
I have heaps of ideas and thoughts I want to share, or at least it feels that way in my head so I am hoping it all starts to unravel. It's naked now, and a not at all interesting compared to the above who have inspired me but I promise I will get there, wherever there is?
I'm working on the header. I know, it is "oh soo boring" but I am determined to create one myself. I am working on figuring all that neat stuff out. So mean while, I sit with what is available on the standard template.
Ciao (inspired and fitting to the lovely "expats"in Italy)
