It’s been a long time and there are some things about my site that I liked, and some that I didn’t.
- LIKED: My Sidebar. Especially the Blogroll.
- DISLIKED: Images were base SO small, due to the size of the sidebar
- LIKED: Orange. It’s not even my favourite color or anything, but the blog has had orange in it for 10 years, and I now closely associate the colour with the site. Everywhere.
- DISLIKED: No Logo.
- LIKED: Simplicity of everything
Really, that is it.
So, I suck at branding and marketing. Never has been my strength. As much as I like the new, simple layout I really want a logo bar up top to splash the color and give it some life.
I also have no artistic talent (although I WANT to have artistic talent) so I just googled “Logo maker” and man, there are some incredible tools out there!
Sending it out to the community – I have to $50 for one of these (or any variation) so curious if you like any? Or, do you know anyone with any kind of talent designing these things? I’d rather pay a person than a server! I don’t need anything fancy as I will never monetize the site, but feel like after 10 years, it’s time to get a logo of some sort.
Also – do you like the layout change? Are the pictures bigger, easier to see? Any suggestions or improvements?
