This week I realized that I haven’t changed my blog background in years, probably five years if I were to guess. Additionally, I made a new top logo recently and it has been driving me crazy (i.e. I thought it was ugly) so I decided it was time to update that as well.
For my background I honestly spent an hour looking at different background images, and ended up with something really simple. My thinking was, I’ve had a colorful background for years, but I think in some ways it distracts from the text, and – this is a blog so the text really should be the focus. So I decided on a dark background that wasn’t distracting, and landed on this one.
If you’re wondering where you can spend an hour or longer staring at background images, I picked Unsplash since they have a pretty awesome library of free images.
Now onto the logo you see at the top. First – hopefully you can tell that’s an “M” if not, let me know. Second, I decided to go with simple and without my cartoon face. That being said, I was thinking of adding my cartoon headshot to my sidebar just above the text “Who the heck is Morgan” – let me know if you think that’s a good idea?
I’ll admit, these are little things but hey, I write a blog post every day, in October I’ll be celebrating the 13th year of blogging, so I felt like it was time to shake thing up a bit. As always, I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!
