The Big Reveal

Thank you to everybody who voted for the new header!  I tallied up all your votes and...decided to go with something completely different.  :)

After hearing all your feedback and living with them both for a bit, I decided I liked elements of each, so I asked Melanie at Mommy Doodles Design to make me a couple more options to look at.  She complied, because she's awesome like that.  I was a pretty demanding client considering this is all FREE and I must say she's been patient and wonderful the entire time; responsive, creative, and always willing to go the extra mile.  So thank you, Melanie!  If you're looking for any graphic design work I recommend checking her out (and no, that recommendation was not required or requested as a condition for winning the giveaway; that's totally my own opinion, given totally voluntarily!).

So.  I think what you see now is the final header.  I decided against the darker ones in the end because I do like the lighter, brighter feel.  Also as one commenter noticed, the pink lady was facing the opposite direction in those ones.  I like her facing this way, for whatever reason!  LOL.  So overall this is my choice; I like the lighter colors, the placement of the pink lady, the fun font, and how it kind of flows with the rest of the blog's design.

I love my new look!  It feels grownup and professional.  And since my entire purpose as a blogger is the acquisition of wealth, fame, and power, grownup and professional seems only fitting.  I'm sure my book deal and big-brand advertisers are right around the corner.  :)

What do you think?


  1. Wait. How is this different from choice #2?

  2. We added the semi-transparent background to option 2 to address the issue of the argyle behind it being too distracting, and to give the header more definition. I think it's perfect now!

  3. Ignore the comment I made on your last post. Obviously I have been out of the loop for a while. ;)

  4. I really like it!

    What is it about that pink lady? She's so much fun!

  5. Hahaha. Well, your choice won, kind of! :)

  6. Isn't she? She was a total accident. I just needed a placeholder until I found a picture of myself I didn't hate. But now I'm madly in love with her.
