      Thank you! I thought about using the Canva app. I use it to make just about everything, my social media headers, and my blog banners. It’s a great app.

    Love your colour scheme and the way your blog brand has come together! We just recently started blogging and I’ll be honest, we didn’t really think about a brand. We made a few logos and didn’t like them so just ended up using title font. Thanks for the inspiration, we are definitely looking at creating a more cohesive brand image in the future!

    Some great advice here Erika! I try to use the same fonts when using Canva but now I think I need to give some thought to colors as well.

    Great advice! I honestly struggle with brand identity a lot. I’m pretty indecisive to be honest. I love the theme you came up with for your blog. It’s beautiful and seems to have a lot of meaning.

      It took me some time to come up with what I wanted. So don’t feel you have to force yourself or rush. I incorporated a lot of what I like in my everyday life. Ex: the flowers, colors. Things like that. You can do that too. Make a list of what you like that you can surround your brand around.

    I loved how you walked us through how you created your brand identity. Makes it easier to join the dots and see how everything connects together. Love the florals, by the way!

    I really like this. I have a fairly well developed logo and such, but I’m a real font junkie and use fonts that work with the theme of the graphic I’m designing rather than using the same ones all the time.

      It can be really difficult to settle on a font. There’s so many out there. I decided just to keep it simple.

      And remember you don’t have to use the same font set for everything. The font set I use for my headers and logo is completely different from what I use for Pinterest. Just keep it consistent within the platform.

    I love this. I feel like I’m still trying to figure out the look and feel of my blog. More homesteading, more gardening, more natural parenting? I feel like I’m struggling to find my exact direction so I can brand accordingly. I love your thought process though, very inspiring!

      Do what feels natural to you. It could be all three. Don’t feel forced or confined into one box if you belong in multiple categories.
