When I read todays “Daily Prompt” I started to think. The idea of your blog as a mirror of yourself is really interesting. I think we all reveal more of ourselves through our posts than we are aware of.
If you read between the lines you can always figure out a lot about a writer. A good author projects feelings through his pieces of writing, some of them are intended and some aren’t. By reflecting and writing on a certain subject you subconsciously you let your personal feelings slip in, you can’t prevent it.
Let’s come to the analysis of my blog:
What does it reveal about me?
First of all, the title: “Useless Talent #666″
It tells you several things about me, for example that I’m a movie fan. In “Planet Terror” the girls talk about their useless talents but almost at the end one of them says that there comes a point in life when you will find a use for all of you “useless” talents. Furthermore, it shows that I like things that are a little bit unusual and not too obvious for everyone. I enjoy speaking in references and quotes, an instant way to find out if someone is on the wavelength as you.
The next thing on the list is the theme I chose:
Well, I tried out most of the free themes here on WordPress and as most of them can hardly be modified I decided for this one. It’s the only one with a nice structures and colors that don’t make me wanna throw up. But after some time I started to like it a lot. The diary-ish look matches with the few posts I write that aren’t reviews but posts about my thoughts on life. I often write to reflect on a certain subject, to get my thoughts in order, do deal with it. Therefore a theme that looks like a diary is a great match.
Moving on to my bio:
I tried to give a little overview about my life, my hobbies and my interests. Of course I also explain what my blog is about. It’s supposed to give a little inside but not tell you the entire story of my life. However, it’s kept rather short so people discover my blog by reading my posts and not just the about-page.
And finally my posts:
It’s easy so tell that I love movie and books. These two subjects are my biggest hobbies and I enjoy spending time on them. The other like the blog challenges or the posts about life reveal a lot about my personality, my thoughts, my wishes, my feelings. Sometimes I just need to write down what’s going on in my life otherwise it feels like it all is slipping away.
