You know when you have that nagging feeling that you should really finish that website refresh/rebuild and change hosts after multiple problems at your old provider? Well, the invoice was coming due and the domain need renewing and I finally said, "screw it, let's do it." So here we are at my new site built on Weebly and hosted by them. Hopefully, they will be better than MacHighway who I was with for years (and years). Time will tell.
While I was rebuilding the site, I decided it was time to redo my logo. Years ago I found an artist at fivrr.com and had the one above made for me. It has served me well, but the tagline is now a podcast that I record with Wil Nix and has moved on to have a life of its own. So, it became time to rebrand and expand. Refreshing and renew. Or better known as drive myself a little crazy.
My new logo has a nod to the old one. A more graphic coffee cup has taken the place of the original, and the heart at the center not only symbolized my love of coffee but also my love of life and the fact I do write romance from time-to-time. I changed the font to be more flowly - and more me. I like the 'T' better in this one. I designed a logo for my up-coming new podcast called Geek Meets Social taking its title from my new tagline. and lastly, there is the coffee ring with my name inside. I still chose a pink because as I frequently describe myself I am a gamer-girl and this gamer-girl loves to get her pink on - even in her hair. So, for me it works. I added a few other tones into the mix (you can see the whole pallet below) and a brown that works with the coffee. I hope you like it, and I'm hoping that I like it at least until I run out of new business cards that I just ordered.
Speaking of business cards. I decided to get postcards as well for Dragon Con and Moonlight and Magnolias this year. It took me a day and a half and several people's asked for opinions before I finally placed the order, but they are soon to be on the way and in the hands of con-goers. Well, it is time for me to go fiddle with the new website and set up new email and all the things that go with transferring a domain and ending service with one company. I'm trying out G Suite as well, so after I put it through its paces, I'll let everyone know how I like it. Welcome to my world - now go be kind to someone.
