Life List: Redesign – check!

Like many long-term bloggers, my little corner of the internet has gone through several evolutions. Right now, one of my biggest goals for this space is to share more photography which is a change from my usual verbose style of blogging about my feeeelings.

There are a lot of reasons for this: I want to promote myself as a photographer for hire. I want to hone my voice as an artist. And (maybe just temporarily) Writing About My Feelings is on the back-burner a little bit.

It ebbs and flows, you know?

My smart friend Jesse built everything for me. We kept the same basic shape, but made the photos to display wider at 800px. We also moved the navigation buttons to the top and removed the color so they wouldn’t compete with the photography. Johanna hand wrote them, which is my favorite part. We also have a hilarious 404 error, which Jesse wrote the quirky copy for. I read it in the back of a cab, and snorted out loud!

The logo is the same; I just couldn’t part with it, and also, I have a lot of business cards printed with it. It’s not going anywhere for a while.

What do you think?

    I super-duper love your logo, so I kinda don’t think that you should change it ever-ish.

    And I’m supportive of you using a more artistic voice. But maybe could we have some art + Feelings Writing? Your Feelings Writing is really good, and your voice is clear. It makes reading your blog very personable and enjoyable, even though a lot of the stories which you tell are very one-of-a-kind and most people probably don’t have experiences which are relate-able to yours. What I’m asking is, can there be a happy mix of the two?

    Your 404 error is cute/punny!

    I’m glad your logo didn’t change. I love it!
    I also was a bit shocked to see my handwriting at the top of your page — I hadn’t realized the site had gone live! I’m glad you like it, and I LOVE the bigger photos. 🙂
