Yes, it’s here! I’d been toying with the idea of a redesign for a while, 3 or 4 months, and I finally decided to take the plunge. I knew what I did and didn’t like, though those thoughts were not entirely coherent! Oh my poor, poor designer, Jen at Magic Feathers Designs (@MFDblogdesigns)!
I knew I wanted it to feel quite neat and sleek, as well as being colours, fonts and style that I love, and have something representative of the blog. Not easy to do, but I have been so impressed with and delighted by Jen – she’s done it! I absolutely love it.
As it’s a WordPress blog, Jen does all of the designing and has sent me over the header, in various sizes for use across social media, too, the social icons, banners and little logos etc. I then got it all uploaded and integrated into the blog, which at the start of the evening felt difficult, but I soon found myself sorting it out! If you’re on Blogger, Jen can install it all, too.
I’m so happy with it! I love the little book and pen house (or residence!), which is also my favicon – something I’d never got round to sorting on my old design. And the colour combination is a favourite of mine. It all makes me smile. I’ve then also changed the WordPress theme I use to give it a further refresher, and I think it’s all come together rather nicely. I just want to sit and look at it, but I suppose I’d best get writing…!
So, if you’ve been toying with giving your blog a facelift, I can heartily recommend using Magic Feathers Designs and I hope you have fun with it!
