Take a Look-See

Is it take a "look-see" like you look and see?  Or is it take a look-sie.  Like a cute-sir way of looking at something.

Check it out.
What do you think of the new look?
Eh?  Eh?

Now.  I know this is schmancy and techy and beyond my wildest dreams.
But don't worry.  It's still just us.
And it'll stay just us.

I don't see my blog blowing up for the following reasons:

1.  I'm a realist.
2.  I could never publish personal stories about my spouse.  Some stories I can't share.  They are private.  And when I read the "big time" blogs... things are said about their spouses, and families, and I'm not comfortable sharing all details of another person's life.  It's like ratting them out.  Somehow.  In my Soprano alter-reality. (Unless they're my kids?  And I got them to sign a permission slip.)
3.  I can't talk about private parts of the body.  I struggle mentioning periods or sex.  I couldn't talk about my private body parts like they belonged to everyone.  Because they don't.  Nursing is one thing... lady parts are another.
4.  I can't/won't "Make Life Happen."  When I blog it's something that happened just regularly.  Or a funny encounter or an epiphany or a family milestone.  That's my zone right there.  Coming up with new party ideas and tips on how to raise kids and product reviews and outfit posts and ... ? .... Come on.  I'm treading water as is.  I can't plan an activity or throw a party just so I can put it on the blog.  I checked with my receptionist and she said I simply don't have the time.  When I told her I hate that excuse, she said I don't have the energy.  And I told her, "I love you."

So.  Enjoy the new space.
I made it for you.

I see your blog blowing up for two reasons...
1) you are an awesome writer and a great person!

2) Crafting blogs are out (everyone has them), real life blogs are in.

I like real life, don't you?

I like real life and I like YOU!

Love the new look! Love your blog!

Um, are you kidding me? Your blog looks ah-mazing! You are so cute and I love your title (how did you create that by the way?).
I love your real life blog and enjoy reading it because you are a great writer. They're not just quick little updates, they're stories (<- I would underline, italicize and bold that word to emphasize how I'm saying it in my head)

I like the new look, and I really like your blog philosophy. I have the same philosophy. Talk about everyday things that happen, and funny things that happen. That's my schtick. And yes, you were right to say "look-see." :) Haha!

Patty said...

@Kar- Glad I have you as a grammatical friend.

Couldn't have done it without you Jules.

Juli said...

Well, I love it. But you already knew that. :)
