Thing # 2 : Creating a Blog

I have never created a blog before. I have read a few food/recipe blogs that always make me hungry.  I always admire the way there is a casual flow about those blogs.  It was interesting to see the behind the scenes of a blog.  There are so many different options and customizable options right at your fingers.  I still have a long way to go when it comes to figure out the ins and outs.  But I feel with some fiddling I will get the hang of it.

I decided on the name Ms. Nicole's 23 Things as the name for my blog.  I feel that leaving it open ended gives me creative room to go in whatever direction I deem necessary that day.  My posting name is  Ms. Nicole because that is one thing I adore about the South.  I am originally from Massachusetts and one thing I noticed is that all children call me Ms. Nicole.  I think it is a tradition that is lost in the North East.

Creating the avatar was fun.  It was great to play with all the different options.  It was interesting to pick things that I thought would represent me only to be surprised.  I ended up going with my classic look, curly hair with glasses. I am having trouble adding my avatar to my blog page.  I may have to call in some reinforcements to help me with this one.  I keep getting fun tech savvy error messages :(


  1. Victory!! I have figured out how to add the avatar, as you can see by my fancy pants avatar on my blog. I was entering the script in the wrong location. Lesson learned.

  2. Go Nicole!! I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was not the only one who had trouble with making a representative doppleme. Every time I made one based on the "parts" to choose I would look at the end result and wonder who it was!! I too have had an issue placing my doppleme. Mine is more on the front end with the notification allowing me on doppleme ending up in my spam box.

    I'm amazed at how easily you reflect on each step. I am hoping some of it will rub off on me!
