I am Christie (& the little cutie in my picture is my son, Kaesyn James)! I am a freshman at IUPUI studying elementary education. While I am passionate about working with children and making a difference in others lives, I am not 100% sure elementary education is the exact major I want to pursue. I am always willing to give anyone or anything a chance, so I am officially an education major and as a result am enrolled in summer W200 course. And as assigned, I am making a blog.
I have NEVER blogged before. I have never even read someone else's blog. And I actually don't even know anyone who has a blog. However, it doesn't seem to be that difficult. I really like that fact that I can personally choose the colors and fonts and fun stuff for my personal page. I still don't know that I have everything figured out, but I'm working on it. I would suggest to other first time bloggers to just look around and take time to figure out how to manage each section of the blog cite. It seems like a lot of details, but I don't think it will be too overwhelming. I am open to suggestions or things I should know.
Thanks :]

  1. What a great photo of the two of you! I luv it! I also appreciated the larger font you used for your blog for ease of us bi-focal folks! I would suggest a darker color on the "About Me" section to make it easier to read. Using smaller paragraphs and some breaks between paragraphs make on-screen reading easier for all, bi-focals or not! :-)

  2. Thanks Christie. I think that the pink on blue is a little hard to see, but as Debi points out, my eyes are getting a little older so perhaps for the younger folks it is ok.
    I hope that you can learn more about education and see if it is the right thing for you!

  3. thanks for the suggestions. kaesyn is only a year old and really really tall for his age, we will be celebrating his second birthday on july 30th, john deere theme :]
