Mirror, mirror

Daily Prompt:  Mirror, mirror on the wall.

Think of your blog as a mirror: what does it reveal? Consider your blog name, theme choice, design, bio, posts… what does every element tell you about yourself?

This blog reveals quite a lot about me, although it is not in any sense a journal.  I keep journals, but they are in notebooks, hand written at any moment I decide to catch up.  Strictly a journal should be added to daily, but mine are not.

So that tells you I like words and definitions, derivations and niceties.  My other blog is intended to treat those kinds of subjects.

But I hope this blog follows its tagline – Tasty writing surprises (non-fattening).

This confuses Google no end!  I have had a few likes from people who write about eating disorders and dieting in general.  It doesn’t worry me, but I hope they don’t feel cheated!  After all I like word play – and trifles are a fattening sort of dessert as well as being unimportant things in the Grand Scheme of Things (which is something else I write about).

My first post was in response to a Daily Prompt and brings out my competitive nature.   Other posts have been in response to challenges – Blogging from A to Z in April, Prompt for the Promptless and any Daily Prompts, which have inspired me.

I also have a series of childhood memories, which are more observations than information about me.

A few posts are about incidents from my daily life related to blogging.  I am happy to share any knowledge I acquire.

My creative hobbies feature occasionally under the category craft.

The arrangement of pages shows my tendency to organise information; my about page gives a clue that I am an introvert.

Now I have over ninety pages I am considering how to direct readers to posts which are related to each other, but possibly not tagged similarly.

If I make someone laugh or even smile when they read my posts, I am more than satisfied.  My humorous posts have been the most viewed.

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the wordiest of them all?
(Seeing I like précis best;
I’ll leave loquacity to the rest!)
