So I changed my blog’s theme for Halloween. In case you are wondering what it’s called (especially if you are reading this after I change it again, which I will do after the holiday, although knowing what my schedule is supposed to be, probably won’t happen until the middle of November), it’s a WordPress theme and is called “Strange Little Town.” I really like this theme — the pink color and the sparkly stars — but the spooky houses and ghosts at the bottom make this more suitable for Halloween than other times of the year, at least for my kind of blog. So each year I usually change my blog’s theme to this one for part or all of October. Happy — in advance — Halloween!
Welcome, Reader. Welcome to my blog!
My name is Rachel Bicha (pronounced Bee ka) and you can read more about me on the About Rachel Bicha page.
On this blog I will be talking about topics concerning history, culture, science, technology, animals, my life, books, writing, reading, and anything else that strikes my fancy. I have a wide range of interests, so expect a wide subject range. To organize things I will have weekly themes, with some themes running more than one week. Think of it like those thematic units teachers sometimes do, but no homework or tests. I will also be posting book reviews, because I LOVE reading!
So why should you read this blog?
First, because reading it will make you smarter. I like to use big words, so you’ll definitely increase your vocabulary here. You’ll also learn a lot of random facts and interesting bits of useless and perhaps not so useless bits of information. Not only will the above increase your knowledge, but it will also help you do better on tests and in class, believe it or not.
Second, because I’m interested in the world around me; I like to learn; I like to use my imagination, and I hope you do too. If so, we should get along famously. And you’ll find this blog interesting.
Third, my favorite question is “why?” so you should expect to see that question explored here from time to time. If you, too, ever wonder “why?” then — I can’t promise it, but — you might just find some answers here.
And finally, because reading blogs is a social experience — you get to know the author and sometimes other readers — and know that you are not alone, that there’s other people out there who think about things like you do, who feel things you feel, and who like things you like. And this is one of the most valuable things a human can ever know.
It’s up to you. You don’t have to read this blog. If this isn’t your thing, that’s fine. Thanks for stopping by. But if you think you’ll like reading what I have to say, come back and visit often. And welcome!
