If you’ve been on the blog in the past few days I’m sure you noticed the shiny, new logo at the top. I love writing this blog and really appreciate everyone who comes by to read it, so I thought I’d try to make it a little prettier for you all to look at. I LOVE the new logo, and was so excited to add it to the site.
Noah, an old roommate of Ian’s when he lived in Minnesota, did the design work for me. Ian worked for a lacrosse organization there, and a lot of the shirts and gear they had sported really cool logos. When I started talking about adding a logo, Ian was quick to remind me that Noah had done a lot of that work. I was really excited when he agreed to work on my logo. I was even more excited when he came up with this out of my not so great starting direction consisting of: I like blues and reds, I don’t like capital letters and here’s a link to my site. If you like what you see and have some design work of your own you’d like Noah to work on, you can reach out to him directly at noahhhallATgmail.com. You can also leave a comment below or email me at heartandsole.colleenATgmail.com and I’ll connect you.
I also updated my About Me page and added a couple badges on the right sidebar for organizations that I’m a part of. I was recently named a Sweat Pink Ambassador and am thrilled to be part of that community. Part of their mission says, they know “that real women sweat, and sweat hard. We know that assertiveness, strength, and ambition are the ultimate feminine qualities.” I’m also a member of the Healthy Living Blogs community, which is a great way to learn about and connect with other like-minded bloggers.
I have a brand new facebook page for heart & sole too: http://www.facebook.com/HeartAndSole.Colleen. If you enjoy reading my posts, please head on over and Like the page so we can connect there. It’s pretty bare, so leave a comment and let me know how your training is going, talk about your favorite races or fitness classes, or tell me what you’d like to see more or less of on the blog. You can also connect with me on twitter or instagram. I’m working on a Pinterest page too, so I’ll give you a heads up when that’s ready.
I have plans to add a few more tabs in addition to the About Me and Race Results pages. I’m hoping to make the website a bit more user friendly by putting those tabs in a nav bar across the top under the logo, but am still figuring that out. It’s a work in progress! I’m always trying to make this blog better, so please let me know if you have any ideas from design to content!
