|5-years? Not for me.|
Hmmph. Branding may be good for cattle, but I sometimes change things up a bit. And therefore so does my blog.
Seriously, I like changing up my blog's look
If I kept a hand-written diary (and I was always good at starting, and lousy at persevering at them as a kid), I would NOT do well with one of these 5-year diaries. Cracking open this same cover for 1,825 days? No way, no how. But I salute those who do.
Last year (I think it was last summer), I started playing around with customizing my blog banners. Thanks to Banner of Blessings for some super cute (and free!) banners I personalized. In addition to using a few of theirs, I've also used a few of my own photos - the bird house in the winter, and the newest header, which is our own new front porch with its hanging baskets of mini-petunias.
Unless I missed one or two, in the past year, I've gone through five banner headings, and am now on Number 6:
A new change of scenery every 2-3 months? That sounds about right. I doubt I will recycle any of these, unless I just can't find another seasonal image I like somewhere down the road.
It's much less frequent than I change clothes but more frequent than I change my wardrobe or hair color. And WAYYYY more frequent than I change paint colors or furniture. (Which is good, because it's a whole lot easier - and cheaper - to change blog banners than wall colors.)
