Well my Blogging activity during the month of May has certainly taken a nose dive. I did have a few posts planned for last week but after the Terrorist Attack in Manchester on Monday night I decided that perhaps it was not the time for frivolities. Out of respect for the 22 people who died I decided that I would not post anything for last week.
Sometimes the evil that surfaces in this world just knocks me off my feet. I cannot believe that anyone anywhere can justify what that wicked man did. Targeting young children is just the most sickening thing imaginable. My heart really does go out to all those who have lost someone and those whose lives will never be the same again.
Now back to frivolities…
Having the week free from Blogging Activities gave me a chance to reflect on how I want to move my Blog forward. Blogs tend to evolve over time and I really want this to be the best reflection of me.
PLANS FOR JUNE & BEYOND
I am thinking of giving my blog a “Make Over”. I am not a 100% sure how I want to do it? I need to have a little play and see what I think might work. I do know that I want it to include my own Art Work. At the moment I am changing the Banner every month with a Disney theme. Usually the picture is from a poster or something someone else has produced. I think it would be nice if I could produce my own banner, with my own drawings or photo’s maybe…
I also want my whole blog to be more visual, more photo’s, better featured images etc…
I want something I can be really proud of. I am also planning on going though my post categories and tags etc.. Going through old posts, making it all nicer.
I am going to stick with the monthly themes though I will be moving away from Disney. I am planning on having a Roald Dahl Month in September and a Jane Austen Month in December for example. These months will feature book and movie reviews related to that author. Hopefully some interesting facts and some artwork I have produced on the selected theme.
Yesterday should have been my Slimming Sunday post for May. As you may or may not have noticed, it did not happen.
Last month I made a fleeting comment that Slimming Sunday was going to have a name change as this post tends to encompass a lot more than just my failed slimming attempts. I need a name that is going to reflect all the nonsense that I babble on about. I will announce the new name on Sunday. (when I have come up with it! lol!)
From June I will also be making these posts fortnightly rather than monthly. I’m hoping that this may motivate me to a bit more proactive than what I am actually being.
Lists, Lists and More Lists…
I am trying to create my Ultimate Bucket List.
I am going to include things I have already completed in the past so I can keep track of achievements. There maybe some posts on this in the future.
The 101 List has also been a little neglected over the past few months or so. I will be looking at completing a few items on there over the next few weeks.
As well as those lists, I will be looking a other lists I can include, maybe some challenges.
I have been really hopeless with this. I have forgotten all about it. From June I am going to have to begin this again. Expect photo’s on this…
I do have other plans but I think this is enough for one post. I am really looking forward to making this blog more me and including more of my creative side.
