Deep breath everyone!
I am about to do it. Yes, I am going to face the Blogging 101 Day 5 Challenge by changing my theme.
Phrases that come to mind are;
- Dive in, head first.
- Take the bull by the horns
- Open Pandora’s box
- set a fox among the pigeons
- Upset the apple cart
and for you Trekkies out there, a slight spoof on the opening credit
Theme, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the blogship, NihongoJapango. Its Blogging 101 mission: to explore strange new themes, to seek out new looks and new ideas, to boldly go where Leanne has not gone before.
However luckily for me me the phrase “there is no going back” does not apply as I believe I am able to revert to my tried and trusted Twenty Twelve theme if need be.
One thing I have learnt about myself over the years and it has been proven once again through my blogging experience is I am not good at reading instructions. I am more of a hands on person who needs to do a task first and then identify what is wrong so I can then go and fix it. Some people would say I am impatient, I like to think I am an experiential learner!
You can imagine some of the food disasters that family and friends have endured!. Also there is a very badly constructed storage shelf at home that I must get round to pulling apart and reconstructing!
This is an exercise in learning. To be honest, I am not unhappy with the look and functionality of my blog so far. It is of course always a work in progress but I do want to learn how to change themes and have a fiddle with different options. The timing is good because I have the support of the Blogging 101 crowd from the Daily Post.
To quote Louisa May Alcott the author of Little Women,
I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.
Wish me luck and if you can remember the old look and have a preference or a view please let me know.
