I would like my new blog to be a place that jog's ones creativity, that spurs you to dream, that helps get your ideas flowing. I am looking for a way to be more creative. If you feel that way sometimes, then it is a place for you, too.
I need some help in thinking of a good "theme" for each day. I am satisfied with two of the ones I have come up with, well, actually, three but I'll get to the last one soon enough.
I like the Monday Menu theme, because when you first look at it, it can be about food, what you are planning to eat, what you are planning to cook, what you are planning to buy, whatever. But, again, dictionary.com tells me that a menu can be any list or set of items, activities, etc., from which to choose, such as: What's on the menu this weekend—golf, tennis, swimming? So, a Monday Menu can be just about a plan for the day. A sort of write it down, tell someone out loud what your plan is so that it is more likely to come to pass.
I also really like the What If? Wednesday theme, because it gives me a place to write all those what if moments I think of all the time, just plain silly things, strange things that pop into my head, that maybe someone on the opposite side of the moon may also be thinking.
And last, I like the Sunday theme of what did I accomplish this week, but I would like to figure out another way to say it that would serve to jog my mind to actually think of little things as accomplishments. Like, say, "I ate one less bite at dinner on Monday." or "On Tuesday, I wrote two sentences towards my goal of someday publishing a book." Something that makes me know that I am doing something, no matter how small it may be. Oh, it is a place for big accomplishments, but little things need celebration too.
I am also trying to figure out how to have more than one blogger, so that I can have a colloboration, a joint effort, of several people, because one person's creativity can be jogged by what others do. If I figure it out, would you like to participate?
