Logos and Keystone Habits

I’m excited that soon I will be adding my very own, custom-made logo to the blog.  I may also be making some color scheme changes.  Once I get that all lined out, I plan to take the blog’s Facebook page live as well, which I’m also super-excited about.

I created a design contest on designhill to make the logo.  I was apprehensive about it, especially the part where you have to pay up front, not having any idea if you were going to get what you wanted from the service (they do have a money-back guarantee, but I’m always so skeptical).  But, I got a lot of really great submissions, and it was a lot of fun!  I just now, minutes ago, selected a winner, and we’re in the final revision/ handover stage, so I’ll have to wait and give my final review on the service once it’s all finished, but I don’t anticipate any problems.

So… stay tuned, I can’t wait to see how it will look once it all comes together!

In other news, I subscribe to Amy Lynn Andrews‘ weekly “Userletter”, which is mostly about blogging, but also usually mentions one or two other cool lifestyle tips, etc… I’m really enjoying it.  This week’s edition had a link this article about “Keystone Habits”.  No spoilers… but I’m feeling pretty smug because I can honestly say I have instituted 5/8 of those habits on a pretty solid basis.  I don’t know about #8, though.  I’m not sure I would consider willpower a habit?  Anyway, it’s worth a read.

I hope everyone has had a great weekend.
