The first thing I noticed about this blog was how soothing it was. The very design set me at ease. Maybe it was the colors, maybe it was the easy to read style, I don’t know. The title itself is rather captivating: “Wandering on Threads of Woven Starlight”. Very nice.
The blog pretty much speaks for itself. Every single entry is extremely well written and you can tell that much care went into it. There are personal reflections, poetry, and other random musings. All are very beautiful to read. The author remains nameless, but much can be known about him through his writing. If you’re still curious, you can read his about page or his 100 things page. His most recent entries were what really captivated me. He has been translating Chinese poems and then commenting on them. Very interesting stuff.
Like I said earlier, the design of the site is what really captivated me. The colors have a soothing effect. The header is really well done and features some great design work. The blog is made with Movable Type, so there is a built in comment system, permalinks, easy to navigate archives, and the like. The author definitely took the time to make the template his own and add some style and flare.
This is definitely not a blog you can simply give a casual glance to. There aren’t any pictures in the blog itself. The beauty is in the entries. Read a few, and you will understand what I am talking about. The updates are frequent enough to make this a regular read and even though the author doesn’t update every day, the content of the entries certainly make up for it. This is an excellent blog.WhisperingWords
