Today (Tuesday) began more than 13.5 hours ago for me. I hope yours starts off as well as mine has.
When I chose the name “LESSONS LEARNED” for my blog it was after about two years of being frustrated with a theme and a name someone chose for me because I was a female. True, I am blogging for ladies, but the female title and design somehow did not suit me or the material I had in mind to present.
My title, LESSONS LEARNED, should reflect what I have finally been able to learn about what to do and what not to do in blogging, and even lessons learned in life. There is a whole world of ideas in that last one! 😉
That being said, I move on to another suggestion for today’s post. It has to do with planning the blog’s contents before you choose a theme. This is probably the greatest need I have right now. I usually deal with deeper studies for young and old, those studying about eternal things. On another blog I have as many as 20 categories–far too many to add to one menu or even a side bar. When I thought of trying to change the categories of all those posts to suit a new theme, I felt overwhelmed. They really need to have two to three parent categories with drop down menus, similar to the ones featured in the following WordPress.com article:
I want to work toward setting up this blog with better planning if my theme allows.
On to the more frivolous information… Adjectives that describe me personally might begin with the definition of my first name–headstrong. My second name means dedicated to God and my maiden name meant bird. My married name for the past 52 years is an Anglicized version of a Danish name “Soren’s son.” I am told there were also Soren’s daughters, but they slipped through the cracks somewhere. I suppose if I add all this together I might be something like “a headstrong bird, dedicated to God.” Well, maybe that is stretching it a bit.

Headstrong indeed. All the best as you try to get a firmer handle on the blogging, B.
The head strong part has been interpreted by some to be “bull-headed” at times. I try at all costs to avoid that image.
