Active Rain has announced a new way to personalize our blog sites. How wonderful is that? They are providing the platform that allows us to point and click our way to our own personalities. I have been scouring the new "looks" of the net and they are SO Iconic it's almost ironic!
Of course they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words". I want to point out that many of my friends and yours are choosing their styles for their blog sites! These styles actually give a strong indication of the personality you are dealing with. I just love it. It's almost like reading palms or auras! How awesome.
These examples are just a few of the blog skins popping up and are just the tip of the iceberg!
The Art Of Marketing You - marti garaughty is giving us all a step by step lesson plan. This helped me to set up my own blog skin. It is truly not as difficult as it may seem. Thanks Marti for all the help! Your blog skin shows your amazing design capabilities and style!
Julie Neerings. I find Julie as delicate as a flower, talented as a star yet strong as a rock. She chose the rock to stand on. Good choice Julie. The symbolism shows strength with understanding. She's a steadfast professional and loyal friend.
Jason Crouch. Jason, for now, leaves it alone. Why? Well, why not? His words speak volumes and there are no pictures needed. Jason stands for family, stability, friendship, honesty, values, standards and hard work.
Melissa Grant: Melissa shows us her sunny side. We see the blue of her skies, the dolphins dancing in the water and the smile on her face. She is welcoming, warm and expresses her huge heart and personality perfectly. Her character shows no boundaries for caring.
Marchel Peterson. Marchel is a true professional and loves her area. She is able to make her area sound and look like the only place to be. She convinces me! I wish you could hear her laugh. She brightens a room.
Tom Plant: Tom shows a gorgeous shoreline within a mountainous region. Water that never ends and a shoreline that seems endless too. This, I believe, shows Tom's ever-open heart and personality. Tom seems at home wherever he happens to be.
Adam Waldman: Strictly bidness. Otherwise called business. Relocation, big smile, and an enigma when it comes to knowing who he is. He shows his professional side most of the time yet his sweet side emerges occasionally too! No background. It's all up front.
Marey Hoeppner: What a gal! She is a great parent, writer and Virtual Assistant. Marey is just beginning a new group for story tellers. Her background is artistic, with much hidden meaning in the rain. She has just begun a new group I would love for all to join called "The Storytellers in the Rain"and please join us for some freedom and fun. Marey has just begun the first of a series of "short stories" so you should visit soon!
Missy Caulk: Missy is very multi-faceted. Her blog skin shows that she is heavily involved with her Community and is a lover of sports. If you delve a bit deeper you will find a lover of technology and the patience to make it work. The colors show support of her team and the bright side of her personality.
Brad Anderson: Brad shows his style and talent with exactly the perfect iconic symbol. A bridge is exactly what Brad offers all of us struggling to cross over to the land of understanding in the world of computers and technology. Thank you Brad. You have taught so many so much!
TLW: The Lovely Wife's Crap a Rama! When you need to smile or simply feel like you're visiting a friend check out her posts. She somehow makes me enjoy reading crap! Who told her it was crap anyway??? It's great CRAP. Her blog skin's fun too! Just don't put your finger on it!
Kathleen Elim: Kathleen, Kate, Katy, Kathy, Kat is one of my steadfast friends. She comments on my posts even when I don't get back to her as quickly as she deserves. I like being one of her raindrops! It's a bit of an enigma since she is so blue sky, stable, wise and wonderful!
Lindsey Hasford: Lindsey is so full of excitement and young fresh ideas and always manages to put her best foot forward. She's "in the pink" just like her picture and her blog skin shows that same bright and vivid personality!
Jeff Belonger: Jeff is the money man and he shows it! I visit and read his advice and reports often. When I have a question that's mortgage related off I go to visit Jeff. His blog skin just sings CHA-CHING.
Vanessa Stalets: Vanessa's blog skin has a sleek, classy look just as she seems to be. After seeing enough of her photos I feel as if I know her. Her blog skin reflects her sensitivity and creative side. And, Vanessa it doesn't make me think of broccoli!
Liz Carter: Liz shows us her professional side with a flair! Her blog skin is attractive and a good example of a "staged blog". Her template design works well with her fun posts as well as her professional posts. Nice.
Rebecca Levenson: Rebecca's blog skin is as colorful on screen as her written words. I totally got the rain drops on the flowers Rebecca. Very good. Very nice. For a woman that stays as busy as you it's amazing you have time for this! This reflects the power of your voice.
Christina Williams: Christina's blog skin is lovely! Just not nearly as lovely as Christina. She shares her heart here in the rain and continues to boost our egos and moods. She has me in her corner! Take a look at her blog skin, smiling face and you'll be hooked.
Debra A Brooks: Debra's blog skin speaks volumes. Bubbles...hum. Air-head? Maybe? She does sell by the water so we ought to give her an atta girl for that one. Deb shows us that one doesn't have to be perfect to give it a try! Please ignore the mistakes...
This is just a tip of the iceberg of the members that should be mentioned here! Go to Kathleen Elim's post for more members that have jumped "out of the box" to give us a peek at their inner workings!
