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.)

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!! 🙂

One thought on “About

  1. So first of all this theme is real cool. I almost didn’t notice that the balloons actually move, nice touch. In terms of the article and making the header catch attention I’d say you did really well. The title is catchy and the slogan there is just relaxed and simple enough to make someone want to see what it was about. And the best part was that the first post I saw was those awesome twix bar things. Anyway the only thing I’d say you might want to mess around with would be the color of the font on some of the posts as they were kinda hard to read.. but I also need new contacts so no pressure.
