Facelift

Check out the fun I've been having with my blog...I got tired of the old pink, pink, and more pink color scheme and decided to build my blog around the tattoo design I plan to have inked on my left ankle after I finish my first marathon.  The actual tattoo would have the Mazda "zoom-zoom" logo added underneath (representing my online running persona), as well as a pawprint.  I would add a pawprint for each marathon I complete--creating a permanent ankle bracelet effect.

I also found a neat tutorial for adding a "label cloud" for my tags, that way I could stick them underneath my main blog entries without having one freaky long column of tags.

I'm starting to give some thought to "paid blogging."  I have a couple of friends who do this and actually have made some decent spending cash (one friend funded a trip to the Mall of America with her blogging) for writing about services and products they have tried.  I do this, anyhow, so might as well get reimbursed for my time and efforts.  I'm also thinking I should do the affiliate thing with my favorite online shoe retailer.  It would net me 10% back from my purchases, so about $9 every time I order new shoes.  Since I am going through 4-5 pair/year this is worth doing.

  1. Holy crap, K!?! I don't look at the ole Zoom-Zoom blog for a day or some and.... WHAM! You've been pelted with a girlie paint gun!!

    I LOVE it! I also LOVE the idea of the tattoo on the ankle! So cool!

    If I can get to the start and finish line of my marathon, I'm planning on having a pair of legs tattooed on my pair of legs. I know, that was thoroughly dorkish. I better stop there.

  2. Tee hee! Girlie paint gun...more like a Zoomylicious paint gun

    :D

    I love the tattoo idea...though it makes me chuckle a bit. Ever see the bit where either Beavis or Butthead talk about getting a tattoo of a butt with a tattoo of a butt...on their butt? Hilarious!

    Exactly what I was getting at with my legs!
