What do you think of my new blog logo and background?


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!

    I noticed the new logo yesterday and then realised that almost a year ago you were asking us to help you choose the direction from 3 logos. Logo is a winner. As for the background, I know it is meant to be a building but it shows as just black in Firefox, but it all works well.

    Your other logo was excellent. The new logo, what does convey or signify?
    I personally, believe logos are meant to stay in people’s retina and mind.
    A good logo should last for many years.
    Ford, General Electric, Quaker Oats and many others are good example of it.
    Anyhow, you’re the boss and not necessarily have to agree with my point of view.

    It should be called Night Blog with that logo. It looks like a nightclub or bar logo, but it’s also appealing in a 1980’s & 1990’s way. I like it, but I didn’t notice or really can see the M on my end. Again, I like it.
