I don’t have to stress why it’s so important to brand your blog, read this article instead. It has taken me a while to finally be confident enough to share and settle on a single word to describe my blog style (it doesn’t have to be a single word, I just like it that way).

Discussing my blog brand kit

 

To say my brand is girly is an understatment. I put together a little blog brand kit and here it is:

As you can see, my logos are pink, pink, pink. Of course my title is in the font Bromello and is itself a logo, but my main logo is the double circle with APSL in it.

No doubt you’ve seen it everywhere. It’s in pink and black because when making a logo, always remember to make it simple and easily rendered.

My chosen fonts are easily explained- having awkward fonts is a pet peeve of mine. I’m not sure if Bodoni 72 is a san serif font, and if its not SORRY! I just like it’s classy and simple look.

The pictures are some that describe the feel I’m going for with my blog. All images via tumblr.

Why I made one

As I said earlier, I finally feel confident enough to settle on a “theme” for my blog/instagram/pinterest etc. If you follow me on Pinterest, you’ll notice that I finally branded my boards and on Instagram, I began a pattern when I post that works for me.

I honestly don’t know why it took me so long to decide on a finite style, I’ve been using the colors, and fonts for a good while now.

Also a side note: I’ve seen a significant bump in engagement since I settled on a specific style. This advice is probably overstated but, a definite brand is so significant for growth.

Have you made a blog brand kit?

    Hey girl!

    I’m so happy I found your blog. I’m beginning to more clearly develop my blog’s brand now that I’m at the end of month 2. When I take photos, I try to wear my brand colors (which are pink also – because this color is the best! haha).

    I’m a long way from that. But it’s so much fun!

    Take care,
    Krista

    • That’s pretty much the same thing haha.

  • Robert Stukowski

    You blog has a lovely design. I don’t really have a kit for my blog. I just used the defaults of my current blog theme, which is the Dynamic News WordPress theme. It fits my genre and niche nicely. So, I never changed it. My logo is just blue and green letters.

  • Miss ALK

    I really like this! Last time I had my blog redesigned I did something similar to this with my designer!

  • This is great! I love the Bromello font. I’m slowly redesigning elements of my blog and I chose that font.

  • I need to create a branding kit! I didn’t design my current blog myself, but I’m hoping that when I redesign, I can work more closely with the designer and create a brand guide I can stick to!
