God bless America! The “land of the free and the home of the brave.”
It all began on this day in 1776. A bunch of revolutionaries wrote up a fancy document and sent it off to the King of England, who ruled them at the time.
I’m talking about the Declaration of Independence. But independence isn’t so easily won as that. Winning freedom from oppression takes more than a piece of paper.
It would be a few more years before the U.S. Constitution was drafted and the United States of America became an independent nation.
So, happy birthday, Miss America. I’m still proud to be an American even if I shudder at some of the problems in America.
Light off an extra fire cracker for me.
The NEW Me
Look at the pretty red to pink header on my page. Doesn’t it scream for attention?
And did you notice the new tag-line for my site? Maybe you even voted for it when I was polling my Facebook friends.
Holding out for a Hero.
Has an excellent ring doesn’t it? Makes you think of anything? If I say I write romance or fantasy or inspirational fiction, the line still makes sense. It’s all-inclusive.
And since you’ve been seeing plenty of posts about Captain America and the idea of being a superhero, it makes everything clearer.
I’m trying to streamline my author brand. By choosing colors and a tag-line that speaks to the heart of my message, I’m hoping to find my niche, make a connection or just settle in with an audience.
Special Blog Series
Beginning this week, I’m going to start a series of posts to fit the theme “What Would Wonder Woman Do?” I got this idea from a discarded tag-line during the process of honing in on the perfect fit.
Since I’m trying to make all my posts have something to do with heroes, this seems perfect.
Look for this meme on Thursdays, and you’ll know my take on something from Wonder Woman’s worldview is about to follow.
Another series inspired by rejected tag-lines is “Between the Lines.” I’m not sure when I’ll begin posts with that theme but they will be the midweek post once Wonder Woman is exhausted.
Does Wonder Woman ever need a break? This one does.
Beginning this month, if you follow via email, you’ll notice that I’m returning to posting three days per week. I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to keep that up.
Mondays will be my regular posts. Thursdays will be my What Would Wonder Woman Do series (until I deplete my creative brain on that topic). On Friday or Saturday, I’ll post “The Week In Gratitude” or something like that. It will be the gratitude memes for the week.
How does all this sound?
I don’t hear much from the readers of my blog. I tell myself it’s because you’re delighted with the content I’m providing. If it’s because you’re bored or aren’t reading it, I hope this change will inspire renewed interest.
If you have ideas for series themes, let me know. If there are other topics you wish I’d address, feel free to tell me about it. The comments on this post is the perfect place for that. Or use the contact form from the “Author Info” page.
So What Would Wonder Woman do if she were you?
