So, I’ve had the same basic layout for my blog since I started. I like the layout and the way things flow, but that banner image? Yikes. It made sense at first, but then I changed my typeface and now, though I do like the image, it makes me seem like a cultured world traveler or some nonsense and I’m not. I’ve never even left the United States. So, it’s time to personalize some details.
Creating a header image out of the blue will take some time. I want it to reflect not only me, but my blog too. That’s the easy part. All my blog is: me complaining, forgetting it exists, and random art posts. I’m not a beauty blogger or a food blog (oh man I wish..Food is amazing. I miss you, carbs….), so any creative header ideas I have can’t be used. Those are the blogs I think about, and none of them are mine. So, I could draw a banner image. That doesn’t seem too hard. What’s hard is figuring out what to put in it. Realistically, it would make sense to have it look almost like one of my comic pages. Or simply a drawing of me working on it (I have an…Interesting work method and thought process). I would honestly like to make all of my social media match, so what I use here will get used on Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, Twitch, etc. That’s a lot to consider, and that’s part of the reason it hasn’t actually been done yet. I’ve been trying to make a new banner for months. I mean, look at my Twitter banner. All it says is my dog makes funny faces.
Yeah, it’s cute, but it doesn’t really represent what I do and who I am. Does that make any sense? I honestly may just be rambling at this point, but I know what I need to do. I need to start focusing more on what I want my branding to be and slowly start changing it. My profile icon is the same throughout everything (minus Facebook), so I’ve got that done. It’ll definitely take some time, but I know it’s something I need to do. So, until then, I apologize for how basic this looks.
Now, I need to go wash the lightening treatment out of my hair, so until next time, you beauties.
