Your blog: Dreads, Wedge, or Tipped

You are your hair, correct me if I’m wrong.  Everyone knows this if they were a child of the 60’s and 70’s.  What do you see when you think  John Lennon, Bob Marley, Jimmy Hendrix, Tiny Tim, or Dorothy Hamill?  Hair, am I right?

I sometimes feel sorry for hairdressers. You take a  picture of your desired do into a salon and expect to come out looking just like the model.  Think of all the Farrah Fawcett wannabes.  One day, you just have admit the obvious, the face has something to do with it.

I’ve always wanted to be a barbie-doll fake red-head.  I haven’t worked up the nerve.  There’s that fine line between looking cool and looking ridiculous, like whoever that new judge is on American Idol.  There is also the age appropriate thing.  Some women just refuse to go au naturel, as if blonde hair reverses the signs of aging.  I like the purple and blue tipped ends on really stylish people.  That could be fun, if I were about 40 years younger.

10 Ways Your Blog is like Your Hair-do

  1. It’s the first thing people see, the last thing they remember.
  2. It hints at your personality.
  3. You really don’t know what you look like to others.
  4. People can’t help but judge you for it.
  5. It makes a statement.
  6. You want to stand out, but not too much.
  7. You want it to reflect who you are on the inside.
  8. You want it to be unique, but you probably copied someone else’s.
  9. If it’s great, someone will copy yours.
  10. It won’t cover for your content, but it can help.

Thanks to the challenge issued by Michael Pick, I’ve begun to wonder.  Maybe I need a makeover, maybe I’m stuck.  I’ll have to think it over, I can be flexible.  There are so many  choices, so little time.  Change is hard, sometimes it takes a little convincing.

  2. You scared me with this .. .a little. I’ve never done anything with my hair. Or my blog. Oh boy . ..
    But, I love the idea of you getting tips! 🙂 God bless you!

  3. It’s tough putting me out there. And isn’t really me. I am a little naughty and I don’t want to offend.. 🙂 I like your 10 and I like the comparison. I was stuck for quite a bit, blogging wise. I stopped, I started, I sputtered and started again. I’m still flying by the seat of my pants! I love to visit here.

    1. You do such a good job “flying by the seat of your pants.” I think you’d rather be lounging outside with your feet up in the country somewhere with a good book and your camera. How am I doing?

  4. So true! We often try to influence the impressions that people have about us, we often try to stay in vogue by copying the best shots, we are often trying to show how good our inside is, by taking our standards from outside… The list goes on and on. Lovely analogy between blogs and hair! Great post! 🙂

    You make a beautiful statement in your writing and when you enter a room, everyone admires that crown of yours! Red hair could never shine the light you already have. About styles…I told my stylist I liked a “Doris Day” bob. Her puzzled look said it all – she was too young to know who DD was. Imagine what she missed out on. 🙂

    Since I’d never read, or looked at a blog before doing mine, I know I didn’t copy anyone’s. It’s all me–the good, the bad, and the ugly… God bless ya, dear heart! love, Caddo

        Absolutely–and by the way, thanks for pointing me to that WP article (I confess I never read their stuff–but this one might be a good idea…). Have an excellent day!

      1. Not so much anymore. The blog that is. Hair yes 😦 I decided to blog this 21 Days of Wonder to keep myself accountable in doing it but other than that, I don’t have a blog schedule. I needed to allow myself that freedom because I can be too compulsive. I’m realizing I blog for me and need to keep it that way. Comments are a nice bonus.

SAY IT TO ME.........I love your thoughts
