Think of your blog as a mirror: what does it reveal? Consider your blog name, theme choice, design, bio, posts… what does every element tell you about yourself?
My blog is very simple in every aspect imaginable. The name was easy, since it is about me and my life, I named it laurieancihols. I am not very good at coming up with titles or clever "jeux de mots" (word games), so I always keep it simple. Actually my blog is very similar to my mirror, what you see is what you get. Ever since I was 15, I made it a habit of not wearing makeup because I had seen many of my friends the next morning without their "face" and I didn't want to have that be something that defined me, my "face". So I took that to heart and tried to live with the adage "what you see is what you get morning, noon and night, no surprises"
The same goes with my blog, whenever I write a post, it is done as a stream of consciousness, I reread what I have written to check for spelling errors and punctuation but rarely do I rework it, it flows from my brain through my little fingers, to the keyboard and onto the screen, so from within my mind "what you see is what you get" as well.
I like simplicity, it makes life for me more understandable.
That’s funny – I don’t do make up either . I used to wear it for the first week of any job, then the first day of any job, then just weddings and parties – and now, sometimes I go to weddings or parties without it and never in real life or at work.
I always like to think that be looking how I naturally look, I should, in theory, be able to look AMAzing if I ever got professional makeup done – the contrast would be so marked.
I possess an eye-liner, a mascara and a lipstick. For emergencies only, when I am going somewhere formal and I wake up looking like a corpse!
That is what I have in my bag,actually I have the same make up things for the past several years.lol.
The amazing thing is we both completed blog posts with very similar names…Mine is Mirror Mirror. I agree that your blog should be a mirror of yourself somewhat. I find the best are. If it is representing you then your love for it and what it stands for, shines through. Great post!
My heart goes out to you when I read about how your body has betrayed you, I go through that conflict sometimes, I have rheumatoid arthritis and chronic fatigue syndrome and a herniated disc in my neck which enjoys saying hello from time to time so when I read your eloquent thoughts regarding pain, loniliness, frustration, I can empathize completely. I think that knowing that you aren’t alone does help and having an outlet like our blogs really makes a huge difference in our mental state and emotional psyche.
