What do you think?
My previous template was something I created myself, when I first started the blog 3 years ago. It was fine, I still liked it and I had been really proud of it initially, but it had started to look cluttered and just a little bit, dare I say it, handmade! In line with my current preference for making more modern items of clothing, I wanted the blog to reflect that feel, with something cleaner, brighter and crucially, simpler. Arguably I've ended up with a fairly generic modern blog format, so I might get bored of it fairly quickly, but I like it for now.
I didn't do much in the way of research around this. I remembered Bonjour Blogger had featured a couple of posts on companies that create templates, and very quickly picked Pipdig as the company, and Nineteen as my template of choice. I changed the colour scheme from pink to green, because obviously. I had had vague thoughts of having a bespoke template created, but the pre-made templates were offering pretty much what I wanted, so I thought it would be a good place to start. And for around £30, it was affordable.
I still like the idea of some sort of logo (I'm thinking along the lines of Portia's, Franca's or Charlotte's). I have zero art or design skills though, so unless some arty friend takes pity on me, I'll need to pay someone for that. One day! :)
I still need to do a bit more tinkering, so a few things may change here and there. But so far I'm really liking it. It's like a new haircut though - I need to run my fingers through it, shake it up and give it a try. At least I don't need to attempt to blowdry it myself!
I hope you like it!
