Who made this awesome blog design?

The current design was created by yours truly. I created the design, the illustration, and coded it all together like a ninja. Or maybe not a ninja. You know what I mean. Like the design? You can get one of your own if you ask nicely. Go check out Design Coyote and fill out the Quote Request form.

Why do you call it Snailbird?

Snailbird is a combination of two of my childhood nicknames. I grew up being called Snail a lot by peers because I was (and am) slow at everything I do, whether walking, running, or thinking (I like to think of it as being laid-back; I take life at a slower pace). Bird comes from Blackbird, a nickname that grew from one of my online pen names based on my favorite poem by Wallace Stevens (“Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird”). Snailbird is as random as I am and what I blog about, so it fit.

I am a very open person and I’m more than willing to share with you any of my own experiences or beliefs or even someone to talk to when you’re lonely in the internet community. Or, you know, something less deep.
