If you haven’t noticed already, I have been going through a lot of design changes on my blog. Better put, I can’t seem to find a style or look that works for me. I would like to blame it on my new platform for not having adequate template choices to choose from, but mostly I blame it on my lack of blog focus and creativity. I will be expecting an email from my mother-in-law (after she reads this post) telling me that I am crazy and that my ‘creativity juices’ just need to be exercised. So true! In fact, I ended up finding this great e-course Blog Design Love which is designed to help bloggers design and format their blogs with personality.
My homework assignment for this evening is to create a mood board for colors that I would like to incorporate in the design of my blog. I used to create mood boards when making presentations to clients so I know they are a great tool for organizing your thoughts. Colors that I always seem to be drawn to are a mix of rich and warm neutrals. I am looking at my blog design to be a canvas for my photos, so neutral colors seem to be the right choice for me.
My next homework assignment is to make a mood board for fonts. Stay tuned.
