You are so sweet! I don’t remember what my criteria were for choosing the visual style of my blog other than it had to be free! But once I chose it, I found that it was pretty adaptable, and I liked the simplicity. I have another blog on Blogger about British men [surprised? of course not!] where the choices were kind of limited, so it has a black background. Therefore, I went 180 away from that on my Tumblr, the one I consider my ‘personal’ blog. My tumblr doesn’t really have a theme, as you probably noticed–I wanted it to be relevant to whatever was interesting me/inspiring me at the moment. I have a teenage daughter who is also on Tumblr–so sometimes I reblog stuff just to show her what I’m thinking about!
