Wee Words for the Weekend
Today I thought I would share with you an excerpt from one of my favourite books. I’ve chosen a section from The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran.

What Does Your Blog’s Identity Say About You?
Although I’m rather new to the world of WordPress, and I’m still tweaking my site here and there, one thing I really wanted to get sorted out was my blog’s identity.
