A Little “Redecorating”

Okay so I admit it…I have commitment issues!  Not so much with my responsibilities or family relationships (although I’m horrible keeping up long distance friendships), but aesthetically speaking!  What I find pleasing to look at today, totally annoys me tomorrow until I change it, tweak it, move it!  So why would blogging be any different?!

A few months ago,  I did a little makeover on Mommon Sense, but it was more out of necessity.  I won’t bore you with the technical-schmecnical details, but basically it had to be done and done quickly.  I didn’t really have a whole lot of time to think about what I wanted the overall look and feel (visually) to be.  Hence, another makeover, but this time more for pleasure than necessity!

I want Mommon Sense to be a better reflection of my personality and writing.  When I began brain storming, I was all OVER the place.  Remember, commitment issues! My tastes are varied and ever-evolving which have resulted in some very poor hair style choices (hopefully not in the present).  So stripping away all of the trends (the big fanned bangs, the perms, the clunky shoes) and anything with a short shelf life in my little world of aesthetic beauty, this is the conclusion I came up with that through the decades  has remained…I’m a straight-laced kind of gal…but with spunk! I like classic, timeless things, but a little punch, pizazz, attitude here and there.  Kind of like Christmas Eve in Sarajevo…musically classic, but with an unexpected pow!  How that translates into a blog design I’m still figuring out, but I’ve made some progress and here’s a little of what to expect…

Visually- Simple, classic, but with a little twist, a little humor.  Due to my need for aesthetic change every now and then, it will be a template that can receive slight seasonal tweaks, but maintain it’s overall look and feel.

Content- the same kind of informal, blah, blah, blah-ing that I do, but hopefully ever-improving

And the big shocker?…the big TA-DA?…I will be showing my face to the world!  When I first started blogging last summer, I was scared.  I was entering a world I knew literally NOTHING about (and I still have a LONG way to go!) But for no concrete reason, I didn’t want to show my face at first.  But then I realized something…as I began reading other blogs, one of the first things I wanted to know was what the person looked like.  Being able to picture them, their smiles, their expressions made me feel more connected to them as a reader.  So…”Grab the camera, Babe (my husband, in case you needed clarification)! We’ve got some pictures to take!”  Just don’t expect glamor shots! (Remember those? Are they still around?!)  Anyways…

We’ll be back next week!  Hopefully with a new look!  Have a fabulous weekend!
