Compilation of assignments Day 2-6 (struggling to catch up)

I wasn’t sure, once again, on whether or not to blog on these assignments, as the constant procrastinator that I am, I always push my writing aside because, well, life gets in the way (or at least, that’s what I tell myself) and I forget to make time for my writing…

The last few assignments were easy guidelines to follow, I was able to freshen-up my “about” section, I organize my ideas better, I identified my audience, I polish the use of widgets;  and I have finally customized my page to a somewhat more professional face.  I’m quite happy with my  theme, it’s something I can enjoy for a while; I know I’ll end up changing it at some point, that’s just something I do.. The best part of it is that I feel more connected to my blog, as if my “pensieve” can depict my mind in a slightly more accurate manner
I must admit that learning how to use widgets was, perhaps, the most difficult one of the assignments; simply because this time I couldn’t (or rather I wasn’t supposed to) skip all the instructions (rather simple) on what they are used for and how to add them… I don’t quite see the point to them, but I assume I’ll find out as I familiarize myself more with word-press; I’m sure that’s something I shouldn’t have shared publicly, but as I explained on my (recently modified) “about” page, I’m extremely honest…

I chose the Love Craft theme because it’s layout was a perfect match to how I pictured my mind would be in physical form, if that could ever happen.. (just like a cherry blossom, intricate, delicately simple and elegant); I’m also partly (if not just psychoanalytically) claustrophobic, so too crowded scenarios, 2D or otherwise, don’t allow me to concentrate, I keep the minimum number of widgets so as to keep my blog spacey and clean, the colors are warm and add to the simplicity factor…  A beautiful sunset in a chilly autumn evening decorates my header, I chose it because Colorado is my “move-to-state”; over all, I am rather content with my new blog. 🙂

Day one and four days late (I’ve heard that late is better than never)

I signed up for the blogging 101 class way before it started, this first assignment was meant to be published a few days ago, the exercise is for us to introduce ourselves to the blogging world…
Greetings fellow bloggers, the first thing I would say about my self is that I’m a passionate woman, an eternal procrastinator, and a decade old immigrant…
I don’t necessarily consider being a procrastinator a negative trait (not completely, at least), it’s all about timing (that’s my excuse), writing to me is an extension of my erratic soul, my blog has become my “pensieve” (for lack of a better word); and as I always mention, it is my way of “exorcising my demons “.
But why blog publicly, in all honesty, I only publish publicly the blogs that I don’t consider too personal, any random thought that may cross my mind and I want to perpetuate it in time (or rather, in the cloud); I blog because I love writing (despite my lack of experience and my challenge in the English language), I blog because it makes me happy and I consider it to be practice, since I aspire to become a writer (among many other things).   I have tried to keep a personal journal, but as the lazy Hispanic that I am (yes, it’s a very common stereotype), it seemed easier to type, plus you don’t have the empty pages to remind you that you’re slacking.
I don’t expect anyone to connect to my blog (though if I had avid and experienced writers give me input or pointers, that would be amazing!!!)  I would, however, like for my readers to enjoy reading my blogs as much as I enjoy writing them.
If I push my self to blog (not because it’s tedious , rather because I procrastinate) through out the year, I would hopefully, have published my short stories/book ideas that; it would be another check on my bucket list. 🙂
