The Idea for this Blog:
So I put a lot of thought into the idea behind this blog. As it comes from a class assignment where we have the freedom to blog about anything, I realized that’s exactly what I wanted to do. Blog about ANYTHING that could happen, that I want to happen, that I want to make happen. Then I remembered the question, “What do you want to do before you die?” from one of my favorite shows, The Buried Life, and thought, well why don’t I make a blog that answers that question! There are so many plans I have, so much that I want to see, and I want to put what I want to do out there in the world so that it’s a permanent list that I can’t forget or put aside. Funny enough, one of the things that I’ve always wanted to do? Start a blog!
So that’s one down! 🙂
A Little About Me:
I’m a musician, writer, artist, and general creative person. I play guitar, piano, and I sing and I’ve been writing lyrics and stories for as long as I can remember. I love using my hands, being creative, and drawing, and I like hard work. Most of all, I’m a dreamer and an optimist, and a traveler at heart. (Hence, the blog topic.)
- Blue Pearl Bay
- Whitsunday Islands, Queensland, Australia.
Making this Blog:
I must have gone through 50 themes, trying them all out and making sure I like them. I settled on the whimsy of the balloons, and I love how they move when you scroll, it’s a nice touch. (I’m a bit of a perfectionist and I love those little details.) I have to say, I like WordPress, it made the idea the hardest part of making the blog. Overall, the experience of setting up this blog has been easy and fun! I really love the whole personal journal idea, and I can see myself continuing this blog passed my class’s assignment, as I feel that this blog is really, very me.
I hope all you beautiful people out there in the world enjoy Bad Nomad as much as I do!! 🙂
