Are your eyes hurting yet from all the brightness? Ehehehe #Sorrynotsorry!
To be honest, I wasn’t going to make announcement post because I didn’t know what to say in it -and I still don’t know- but when you have blogger friends that make you realize how non-sensical it is to not write a post about it, what do you do? YOU WRITE A POST ABOUT IT! And that’s what I’m doing here, explaining a little bit of the why and the what.
It is quite simple, I was fed up of my old design, I felt like it was dull and didn’t represent my personality the way it should. Plus I came to HATE my graphics, they felt too crowded and they just hurt my eyes. To put it in a fewer words, I was ready for a change, and if you know me at all, you’d know that if I’m not 100% satistfied with something I’d easily get bored of it and that’s what happened here. It was my first attempt at any kind of blog design and although it wasn’t bad, I learnt a lot since and felt like it needed improvement.
Huh! Because it’s bright and bold so I feel like it’s more ME, I’m a big ball of energy that goes around flailing and shouting, in contrast with that my color scheme was bleh and I didn’t like the yellow much to begin with. Even though pink isn’t my favorite color, I fell in love with the background and decided I was going to use it and nothing else. I hesitated a lot at first because I feared it was too bright, then I thought, what the heck, I love it so why not? Plus, it complimented the fact that I wanted my graphics more minimalistic. A bold background and white graphics. That’s how I roll from now on.
Well, EVERYTHING?! Okay, for the new comers (Welcome!), the background went from this:
The header from this:
My Graphics looked like this :
and now, like this:
I also got myself a logo:
I’ll be using only 2 fonts –Selina and Text me One– instead of the the 4 (What was I thinking?!) I used before. I will also be changing some of my post formats, especially the wrap-ups. What else is there? Mmm.. I think that’s it for now, the rest of it you’ll see while the new posts go up. The only thing I’m keeping is the theme (which is Zoren) because it’s the one that works best for me and for what I want my blog to resemble.
The perfectionnist freak in me seriously considered going back and changing ALL the graphics to match, but a girl has no time. I think that if it was summer I would have done it. Really. Haha!
That’s it until next time!
Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.
