I’m taking a blogging course, but I haven’t been blogging for ALL of last week! : ( I think I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the information. Need to just start with one thing instead of trying to think of everything at once. Here’s my homework which is to do a moodboard showing inspiration for your blog.
Now that I see it in this blog design, it is very similar to what I have currently. I like the look and feel of my blog but I’d like to scale it back a bit so that it has more white space, and less noise. (Hence why I didn’t fill this up with too much). I really want my design to be “breatheable” but it’s important for me to still retain a scrappy, “cut and paste” look as I want the blog to be about the creative process and not just finished work. As you’ll notice I love polka dots! (Note to self: Use some of the cute polka dot washi tape that I have stowed away). I also want to have more consistency in my blog design so I need to start applying more strict rules for font, colour and design element usage, but still give myself freedom to experiment and try new things.
Ok this might be a lot of design babble. A big thing that I’ve loved so far about my blogging course is that Holly (our fearless BYW bootcamp leader and instructor of Decor8 fame), and Jeanette Lunde (another super nice co-instructor who runs By Fryd) both speak a lot about being honest with ourselves, having integrity and really listening to one’s heart on which direction to go. Love it! I mean, my blog is called Project Heart, right?
