Maybe I’ve been looking at too many wedding invitations/save the dates. This morning I woke up to a massacre of lines and shapes and foil pressed patterns because the better part of last night was spent drowning on Minted.com. IT’S CALLED RESEARCH, PEOPLE.
Brides, can you back me up? I haven’t crossed over to the crazy place, have I? I’m just collecting all the information I need to make an educated decision. You know, like they taught us in school. I’M BEING THOROUGH. But dude there are so many options. So. Many. Options.
I’m seeing wedding stars. Which means it’s time to move onto writing news, of which I have some 😊
Wedding & Writing—I should rename my blog, eh?
I try not to talk about either too much because this isn’t really a wedding blog, and I have Patreon where I post a lot of my writing updates. I let the cat out of the bag there on Friday, so now I guess it’s time to share it here. Anyone want to hear my writing news? That’s right. Hands up! 😊
Okay, so, you know how I still feel like an amateur at this whole self-publishing/indie author thing? (Well I do) and one thing I thought might combat it (besides loads of booze and drugs, obviously) is a reason to feel legit. Having fans reconfirm it is possibly the *most* potent form of acceptance or whatever you want to call it. But behind fans and just plain believing in yourself comes the all-famous: you’ve got to fake it ‘til you make it. Believe you are and others will too.
With that said, might I introduce the now-legit C.G.Coppola:
Holy smokes, Batman! It’s a logo! With a tagline and everything!
WTF did this happen? Recently, darlings. Well…somewhat recently. I think I got the ball rolling sometime late last year? Maybe early January? Either way, it’s exactly how I pictured it, drew it, explained it and…well, now have it 😊
So, have I done anything with my new branding tools? Not so much. As you can see, my blog is still sporting the same ol’ header, so I’m sure I’ll get around to implementing these updates soon. Maybe not. I might write instead but at SOME POINT, hopefully in the near future, this blog will have a new look…and I’m excited for the legitimacy of it.
And because a bride’s work is never done, I’m off to dance with the devil again. Pintrest/Amazon/Etsy—I’m coming for you. Let the bizarre dreams continue.
Love to hear your thoughts on the logo! And some back up that I’m not crazy! (Or am the right amount of crazy for a bride. That’s fine too.)
