ISN’T IT JUST GORGEOUS??? AAAGGGHHH *fangirls* *over a font*
And because I just can’t decide which looks better:
Okay, so I’ve been wanting to redesign my header and other stuff, and guess what? I FOUND SOME AWESOME GRAPHIC THINGIES (from Angie Makes) AND EXPERIMENTED AROUND WITH THEM. I made two different headers with two different watercolor background things, and finally decided on the one you see above for a cleaner look.
Yup! I’ll be putting up a “Lovely Blogs” page up soon, so you can comment there and we can swap buttons 😉 because I FINALLY HAVE A BLOG BUTTON
THAT ACTUALLY LOOKS GOOD.
EEE! *fangirls some more* This is much too fun. If you can’t tell already, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE fonts. And pretty graphics. AGH.
EEK I LOVE IT SO MUCH. And you better too. Otherwise I will hunt you down and throw mangoes at you until you give in and admit how lovely it is. (And those mangoes will fall to the ground and get rotten, because you don’t deserve to eat them. Unless you like the font. Then by all means eat the mangoes.)
I’m probably going to be implementing all sorts of new cursive/modern calligraphy fonts because OOH PRETTY FONTS GIVE ME. But this and a new Bodoni font I found because my OLD ONE NOW COSTS MONEY TO USE ON PICMONKEY GRR will be the “main fonts” of my blog. But I’m lucky that I’ve been planning to use a new font, because then I would’ve been stuck in a pickle and nobody likes pickles???
You also better like my blog header and blog button, because it’ll be sticking around for some time. Hopefully. Maybe. Okay, so maybe I will find another font that I love and another graphic background thingy and fall in love with it and then make a whole new design??? (P.S. I have a new sign-off but DON’T GO LOOK AT IT JUST YET BECAUSE I SITLL HAVE ANOTHER ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE. And that is…)
(Yes, I’m taking every chance I can get to show off my lovely font.)
Okay, not really that exciting (COMPARED TO A NEW BLOG DESIGN AND FONT(s)!!!), but still very important! My original plan was to post on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays (if you hadn’t noticed), buuuuuut that left a two day break in between Wednesday and Saturday, and Saturday and Tuesday. #NO???
So now I’ve decided that I can post on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, leaving a two day break only in between Wednesdays and Saturdays.
(It’s not an actual schedule, really, with topics for each day. It’s more like a POST ON THESE DAYS OR YOUR READERS WILL DIE type of schedule.)
So yeah. MONDAYS, WEDNESDAYS, AND SATURDAYS will be my official posting days, unless I am 1) busy that day, 2) on hiatus for some reason (like a vacation), or 3) I FORGET. (Which will hopefully never happen???) And because I have lots of post ideas and not enough days to post, I probably will either #smush things into things into things, or just randomly post on Friday. 🙂
Don’t complain. You know you love my posts.
- I have a new blog header, a new blog button, a new sign-off, and a new font (or you could say multiple fonts because PICMONKEY IS TRYING TO EARN MORE MONEY GRR.)
- I’ll be putting up a “Lovely Blogs” page sometime soon, which you should TOTALLY CHECK IT OUT SO WE CAN SWAP BUTTONS
and my blog can be promoted without me having to awkwardly beg people to come and visit.
- I have a new “blogging schedule”: I will post every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. (And possibly Fridays when #smushing doesn’t work.)
- And that’s pretty much it??? Wow, this post was 99.8% fluff. I’m disappointed in myself.
Also, be a loyal mango and take le poll.
OKAY. So I’m wondering what size/shape/whatever my “featured image” graphics should be. Should they be square or rectangle? Square makes it look a little weird with this theme, but rectangle headers always look weird to me. COME FORTH AND GIVE ME YOUR THOUGHTS, BEANS, AND I WILL PUT THEM IN A LITTLE JAR TO CARRY WITH ME EVERYWHERE.
I am also trying to figure out a theme for my featured images. I’m done with basic shape graphics and all that boring stuff. I’m thinking either post-related, free-stock photos, or flowery backgrounds. What do you think?
(And yes, because I am an indecisive, unconfident, approval-seeking little bean, I made two polls. You’re welcome.)
(Just ten seconds???)
(btw, “post-related” means “relating to the post”. Who would’ve guessed. Like if I had a writing-related post, I’d find a writing-related image. And then if I had a book-related post, I’d find a book-related photo. Huzzah.)
BE A NICE MANGO AND DON’T PICK THE LAST TWO ONES. (Amelie, looking at you.)
[insert the great “shall we chat?” graphic that I have yet to make with my new color scheme #sorry]
Like my new blog header/button/sign-off/font? How do you feel about my new “blogging schedule”? Square or rectangle? (TAKE LE POLL) Agree that this post was 99.8% fluffy fangirling
and filled with way too many pointless graphics? Chat with moi!
