Blog Designs

      I bet there many of you out in Blog World, who have faced the same decisions I have been make recently. 
  What decisions you asked?
 Well here is a part of the list:
1. website hosts dedicated, shared, and free servers 
2. $$$$ cost is is right for me or you? 
3. Raise your SEO and Page traffic.
4. WordPress vs Blogger?
  I am filled with information overload after searching, reading, and questioning. Now I  feel like I am tossing the pros and cons like a juggling act. Many of you are right now in the same boat, with your mind steering the boat in circles, well I took a little break and Jumped off the Boat!
  Since I am still debating these thoughts I needed to accomplish something.
 We all know, that a creative spirit has got to dance, clear the cobwebs, to be able be inspired, to transform, and create.
 Hey, I think I just worked on simplifying my Header!

    What did I do? 
I created new art work for my blog. 
  I have been working on creating one continuous logo for my types of social media and blog. I have been chatting with someone who I value their opinion. She knows who she is for now we will keep it that way. Her suggestion is simplify your design and header. 




The first idea was layering paper, an image from the +Karen Watson Graphics Fairy(Lily Pads), and my own image the Dragonfly.




When I  worked on this I used my computer to wash in some color to appear like a water color.

I added in words I feel describe my blog and dressed up the Logo a bit.   
Did you notice the color of the year?


Can you see the subtle change?
