Some blogs out there have a page dedicated to their archived mastheads. Or headers. Or whatever that little thing is at the top with the blog’s title, a clever, catchy tagline, and often a graphic that visually suggests the blog’s or blog author’s “image.”
Technically, these things are not mastheads. From where I come, the masthead has all the who, what, when, where, information about the publication; usually, it isn’t even on the first page. If we are equating a blog to a newspaper or a magazine, then technically, that which people are calling a masthead is a nameplate. Technically. Because, you know, I can get technical like that.
But this is the crazy, hazy, lazy world of The Internets, so I could call it a Welcome Mat and it wouldn’t really matter.
Anyway, so these other blogs archive their Welcome Mats because presumably, they have spent some time and effort to create them. It’s always good to save your work. Every 15 minutes. More often if you’re a pessimist.
Now, I don’t have an aesthetically pleasing, well-designed Welcome Mat because what am I? Some sort of graphic designer?!? No, I’m a blogger who is much better with Scrabble than with Pictionary. It’s just the name, The Delicious Life, and a tagline. However, since I do like to play with words, and I like to maintain myself in a fantasy world wherein my plays on words are exceedingly clever, I am saving them here. I don’t know. Maybe they can be made into a calendar.
Drinking. Dining out. Dabbling in the kitchen. All the things that make life delicious.
Where steak is always medium-rare and blogging is well-done.
When life gives you melons, spellchecker can’t help you.
Never trust a big butt and a smile.

If you come up with anything clever and catchy and funny and witty that goes along with The Delicious Life and some of the nonsense you’ve read here, please feel free to leave it in the comments. I’ll send you royalties when I’m rich and infamous. ;)
