Since I'm new to the blogging world, and have a tendency to become obsessive with any new project I take on, I've been reading every blog I can get my hands on. (Which is surprisingly easy with twitter... if you blink, you'll miss a handful of links on the live feed within a matter of seconds)
So with my new, critical blog eye, I've noticed that a lot of people have a sign off phrase. Most of them are pretty ordinary--things like "Hugs" or "Happy Writing" ... generic phrases that make a smooth transition to your lovely signature at the bottom of the page. But shouldn't a sign off phrase be catchy? Something that separates you from the sea of bloggers trying to get their name out there?
But does it work in the blogging world?
Take Tymothy Longoria's "Word." <-----Every time I hear/think/see the word "Word" I automatically think, "Tym!" It's brilliance! It's like he's sealed up his entire personality in one... well, word. Or what about Leigh Fallon's "All the best and talk soon" <-----This instills a feeling of personal connection. It's like when she says "Talk soon," she cares about the reader and can't wait to chat again. (Sorry Leigh, I always pick on you)
Now, there's no way I'd be able to pull off Tym's coolness or Leigh's classy Irishness, but I do think I need something.
So what I want YOU guys to do is tell me what my sign off phrase should be. My lovely hubby and I have come up with a few options. Whichever phrase gets the most votes, I vow to use it for the rest of my blogging career! (Er... don't read the disclaimer in small print at the bottom of the page)
