WARNING TO DA BOYS: This post contains explicit mention of ladies undergarments. But in a hum-drum practical kinda way, sorry.
I like my blog theme. Haven’t used it to its full functionality yet, I’m a newbie so still learning. What I didn’t like was looking for it. It was an arduous, time-consuming, and overwhelming task. Until I got my tech-savvy 20 yr old daughter to help. Then it was easy. I gave her a wish list from my window shopping of other sites I liked, and made her go find the right one for me. I’ll likely change it one day but for now I am quite content with it.
The assignment for Day 5 in Blogging 101 is to Love Your Theme: try out 3+ other themes including one you would never use. Okay, I will just because I try to be a good student. But not until after I get over the stress it causes me to even think about going through the process again, especially without my kid around. Knowing me, I’ll adopt the theme I don’t like, mess up my settings, and lose posts.
Thinking about the assignment though reminded me of another task I don’t like to do, but must on occasion: shop for a new bra. Did reading that make you squint your eyes and raise your eyebrows? Here’s how I see some similarities …
- They both have to “fit just right”: suitable width and cup size; tailored layout and functionality.
- Don’t want something about them that shouldn’t be there: no underarm muffin tops; no over-the-top irrelevant embed.
- Good to have a little cleavage showing: maybe a little padding or a push-up; maybe some colour or whimsy. But not so they distract from the core: the person; the content.
“First rule of cleavage: it’s not how low you go, but where and when you show.”

- Variety is the spice of life: going a bit risqué or with a different style; adding some videos or reblogging a follower’s post.
- Material matters: comfortable and looks right under the clothes it will be worn with; naturally written and blends well with its surroundings.
- Consider from all angles: fitting rooms with multiple surrounding mirrors; viewed on different devices.
- Even the smallest ones need support: underwires or sporty fit; WordPress’ Forums and Community Pool.
- Easy to use: effortless clasps and simple strap adjustments; fluid navigation through menus and categories.
- Helpful to get expert advice: having a bra-fitter do proper measurements and make suggestions; asking others to measure your site up and provide feedback.
And most importantly …
- DRESS FOR SUCCESS:
I’ll let you interpret the bra relation to success in your own way; be a “Tenacious Blogger”.
