I hate not blogging.
I feel lost when I’m not typing to the tune of my personal DIY rhythm. (And I don’t mean that in the 7/4 “Money” sense. #darksideofthemoon anyone?)
Everyone knows the homestretch of school is always the hardest. Some cool people are able to go to school, work full time, and manage their blog full time (Ugg Duck, I’m lookin at you!) But not me. When I had to drop it down, I expected my daily page views to go down. (And they have- by 1000 per day) But I didn’t expect to lose subscribers. However, I did. I lost several facebook and email readers.
On a scale from 1-10 going by levels of bummers, I was Kelly from season one of Survivor. But you know what, it’s cool. Because YOU terrific people cheered me up good and plenty. And then I remembered, I would blog even if my mum was the only reader. Because she’s worth it. And I blog because I have this burning passion for turning my thoughts into words.
Anyway, bringing the tangent full circle: I take my state exam on Saturday. On the condition that I pass, I’ll be back in action.
I’ve been hinting to you fine folks that a new blog design is in the works. I can paint a room like it’s nobody’s business, but picking blog design elements? Perhaps a 3 year old could make up their mind faster.
I have a name twin, Kenzie, who is an amazing graphic designer. She also happened to strut her stuff once. I love her because she is incredibly patient with me when I say “I don’t know how I want it to look, but I want it to be stunning, and professional, and fun, and unique…so read my mind please.” I’m too difficult for my own good.
She has created 3 amazing logos. And I love them all for different reasons. I thought it would be fun to show you what she’s made so far, and have you vote on your favorite.
Think you can handle it?
Now remember, this isn’t the header or anything. This will be the watermark, part of signatures, etc. Think “sideways heart” from YHL. And go with your gut.
Ready set VOTE!
You guys are steller.
