I don’t know about you, but I have no clue when it comes to Blog design. I currently use Blogger and when I first started blogging and sadly sat here and choose one of the pre-set designs I was not entirely happy. Don’t get me wrong…they are some very nice design, I just was not sure if it reflected the colors and designs that were “me”. What ever that is 🙂
Little by little I started to pick up some tricks here and there. I was able to discover some pretty cool Blogger Backgrounds to use, yet still it felt not entirely me. I was seeing too much pink everywhere! I originally choose my logo line when I was living with three guys in the house (my husband and two sons). I was gravitating to pink since all I was seeing was blue and dark colors…and “Pink Sudz Soap” was born. Then my daughter was born, and now I see pink everywhere! LOL
Since I am not changing the name I decided to start to do some browsing to see if I can get some pretty cool ideas. I was gravitating to the clean, blank designs. I checked out how much it would be to purchase a template and had to pause at how much money I would end up spending! That would mean no more fragrance oil purchases for some time!!! NO WAY!
My good friend Cee Gee from Oil and Butter encouraged me to try to do it on my own. She gave me some wonderful tips and even started to explain a couple of things to me, and I will kid you not – I GOT MORE SCARED. So like a good friend she pulled me off the ledge (or maybe pushed me!) and encouraged me to try.
So here you see my new Blog design. Not as much pink…(except for all the letters), but a more cleaner look. Tell me what you think! I would love to hear your feedback and any other tips you may have to share.
I also have a brand new signature logo. I think I like it…I may tweak it a bit by myself , but for now it is good.
I found this awesome blog Her and Nicole , that showed me how to center my logo and tabs!
Well, now that I have bored you with my latest blog chattering I will confess that I have made soap…I just have lost the cable that uploads my pictures from my camera to the computer 🙁
I am going to need to retake the pictures with my Iphone so that I can somehow transfer them so I can share them with you and do some blogging!
