So, How Do I Look?

My new button - so exciting!

I have been a bit quiet over the last few days as my husband and I have been busy updating my blog. Well, he’s been updating it and I’ve been telling him what to update…you know how it is…

Seriously, I think he’s done a fantastic job and I am so pleased with how it’s turned out. So, how do I look?

I felt it was time to develop something more unique and in keeping with the evolving tone of My Home Truths. Can you believe I have been blogging since January now? (this is seriously the longest New Year’s Resolution that I have ever kept!)

The cute little bear (sourced from www.openclipart.org) is inspired by my own three little bears and I am a girly-girl at heart hence the purply-pinkness of the site. I also like the sense of fun and whimsy that comes from the bears and the colours and the subtle stripes in the background – I hope you do too!

Another reason for the makeover was that I took the plunge and booked my ticket to the Digital Parents Conference in Melbourne next March. I have been blogging for some months now but have not met any other bloggers as yet so I think it is time for me to to go forth and network.

So, in the spirit of being positive and organised (which I’m usually not!) I wanted to refresh my blog so I can order business cards and build my profile a little more before next March.

Also, look out for the link-up I promised when I confessed to being a Meme/Blog-Hop/Link-Up whore.  “I Must Confess” will be going live on Sunday November 6 so start thinking about those confessions and feel free to link up. I will let you know when I have the link all organised and ready to go!

Finally I just wanted to thank all of you who read my random ramblings and who take the time to comment and keep in touch via Twitter and Facebook. Even though most of us haven’t physically met I feel as if I do know you all and I am so looking forward to continuing to ramble on together.

    It’s great Kirsty. Very appropriate design from you and lovely to hear that your husband put in so much hard work too. Next time I see you you’ll have to tell me all about the conference…sounds exciting!
    Well done.

    I love it Kirsty – I especially like the ‘bear’ theme and it’s meaning xx
    Can’t wait to see how the business cards etc turn out, and I’m excited to hear you are going to a blogger event. I bet you’ll love it [quietly jealous]. I wont be at that one, but I do hope to meet you one day soon! x

      Thanks Carly – the bear theme chose itself really, I just wish I could have taken an awesome shot of the actual bears to incorporate into the design, but I’m not the best photographer (hence I am studying your blog with great interest at the moment!) While I’m looking forward to DPCON2012, i am quietly panicking at putting myself out there…looking forward to meeting up with you one day after your little once makes their grand entrance!

    • Kirsty says:

      Marita, thanks for that. I actually used your blog as one of my inspirations – I love your ducks and wanted a symbol that connected the blog and gave it a personal vibe. Incidentally, we have a game called Duck Duck Go that has similar ducks that you can go on to collect (we have a doctor duck, cheerleader duck, etc) very cute…

    Looks great. I think your branding works really well for your site and should look tops too on the business cards!

      Crikey, I’ve got to get business cards sometime soon – that sounds a little too professional for a hobby, doesn’t it? But hey, they’ll be pink with a bear on them, so maybe not that professional after all!!!!

    Very cute! Love it 🙂

    Sorry I don’t comment more, I read you a lot but the brain is often switched off when I do (you know, after 11pm?) and I feel I can’t bring much to the conversation…

      Sara, thanks for letting me know that you are reading my blog. I’m hopeless at commenting – I subscribe to a heap of blogs who probably don’t know I exist because I read them over breakfast and never find the time to then comment! Unfortunately for me, once the moment’s gone, it’s gone!
