Rachel,

You've made a good start on your blog. You might consider introducing yourself in somewat one the entry page. Details can go under "complete profile" but people like to know they are meeting someone when they come in your door.

Your topics are good, again more of you and your interests would be good. There is another young girl who blogs at http://vanillabirdies.blogspot.com who writes really charming things. You might visit her site for some ideas.
