Happy Monday! I’m so happy to reveal the new look and feel on my blog today! I’ve been working with my graphic designer (who also happens to be my rad brother) to re-brand Let’s Eat Grandpa with a fresh, new look. I may be biased, but I think it’s pretty much the best ever. My bro did an amazing job and was able to capture exactly what I wanted in my new branding.
Why the Change?
When I chose the font for my former logo, I had never seen it before. Now it’s everywhere and seeing “my” font all over was driving me crazy. And while I loved my bright colors, I was finding they were starting to feel a little…elementary, especially when paired with my font. Instead of cute and bright, I wanted soft and sophisticated but still a little quirky (you’ll notice my little grandpa icon making appearances here and there!). I also wanted a new tagline that could be incorporated within my logo.
I think we nailed it! We created both a long version (seen in my header) as well as a square version (seen below). What do you think?
Partner with Me!
About two months ago, I added the option to purchase sponsor space in my sidebar. I didn’t promote it as anything new because I knew that the redesign was coming. Now that it’s here, I’d love for you to consider partnering with Let’s Eat Grandpa for November!
For a limited time and a limited number of ads, I’m extending the normal one-month timeframe for an ad to two months! You get the entire holiday season for the price of just one month. This includes some great exposure during Giving Handmade on November 30, which last year was my highest traffic day of the year. Click on “Advertising” above to see the sizes and rates. You can also download my media kit for specific blog stats.
And as a special treat, I’m going to do a giveaway! I’m so close to having 1,000 followers on Twitter, and I’d love to hit that magical number. To get there, I’m giving away a six-foot strand of custom pennants! You chose the colors and I’ll make it especially for you! All you have to do is follow me on Twitter (or click the “I already follow” button) and, if you’d like more entries, share on Twitter. I’ll pick the winner on Friday!
