eXcited About the Logo
Okay Okay, I know that eXcited is cheating a little when it comes to the letter X for the A to Z Blogging Challenge. I was really struggling with this one, I will be honest.
X is REALLY hard!
So I am going with excited. I am excited for a reason. After moving from WordPress to my very own website just 11 days ago and with all the work that entailed, I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
I think I have got to the point where I am happy with my new site. I have redone all links lost during the transfer and have decided on my very own branding for my blog.
I was told to pick a palette and stick with it. I knew straight away that purple had to be one of the colours. Bob D is obsessed with purple and he chose which shade he liked. I then used this fab website (www.colorexplorer.com/colormatch.aspx) to find which colours matched. My brother-in-law told me about it and it really helped!
I then decided to go all out and design a logo. This was HARD! I started off doing it on photoshop and then some of my lovely blogging buddies suggested Canva. What a revelation. If you have not checked this site out then please do. It makes life so much easier and has standard templates for different images. They provide a ready-made sign for social media badges, twitter banners and pinterest images. I could spend days playing around with it. Hold on…I did…
So, apart from continuing to play around with plug ins and fine tuning, I think I am almost there.
The only thing I am not sure about is how to go back to amend my social media pages. Do I go back an amend my previous posts on Facebook? Who knows but I am guessing it won’t be that easy.
It is all getting a little serious this weekend. I am really excited to be starting to help promote the Preeclampsia Foundation. After chats with them this week, I have been added to their list of bloggers and I am thrilled to be taking my blog to the next level and properly raise awareness. More about this to follow.
With this in mind, it has properly inspired me to get this blog sorted out. I really feel like I will be back in the land of blogging from this weekend and I can’t wait to connect with all the blogs I love but haven’t been able to read lately! 🙂
Hope you like the new logo and design! Let me know what you think in the comments.
Have you moved to self-hosted? Did you go back and amend any old social media posts?
