Welcome to the New Year my friendly folks.
Have you felt different in 2012 yet? If not, you should since it’s a new year for the Gregorian calendar.
You might have noticed some spectacular changes to the look and feel of the site today. This new look has been inspired by multiple blogs, brands, and people in my life. I do not have full customization of the site; (WordPress has control over that unless I want to pay for it, which would not be an issue if I was sponsored) I do have the power to do some minor altercations, which I hope you like.
The main logo for the show-blog is the full color image with the orange streak, which is of course my infamous orange scarf. As autumn approaches, I pull it out from the shadows and take it off usually at the end of spring, and sure enough I have worn this so often that I have the lunch ladies asking me where it is and strangers come up to me and ask if I am the orange scarf boy. Certainly, this scarf deserves more recognition and it seems to be a part of who I am, so I incorporated it into the logo design. Which was risky, because not everyone knows me and so they might think I am a scarf-only talk show host which would be nice, but not in the ballpark. I believe a lot of clothing can have personal meaning to people as they wear it either to commemorate a loved one or simply to make them feel warm when it’s cold outside. The story of my scarf is more of symbolic expression. The color orange represents self-confidence and creativity. Which in turn, resonates my mission of Inspire. Dream. Create.
Orange is very blatant and vulgar. It makes you immediately start having feelings. –Wolf Kahn
Much inspiration, dreaming, and creativity can spark a fire inside of anyone and so that takes me into explaining the yellow color of the text which merely compliments the orange scarf perfectly. The text is an awesome witchy font as I like to put it and represents my magical and dream-like self. It turns on the whimsy scope and makes it very different from the other talk show hosts. Basically, we have an underlying whirl of flames with fantasy all rolled into one. This to me, feels like a ball of energy waiting to cast some awesome inspirations, dreams, and creations for 2012.
That is the magic behind the new logo. Also you will notice that the showcase tab has been disabled. This feature has been clogged with more spam then a grocery cart can hold so I opted to no longer have the option. However, if you are inspired and want to share your story please email me! I have emails to look over anyhow so feel free to talk to the host.
Some highlights to point out for the new year:
- 2011 site stats have been processed and can be viewed here.
- New Year New You blog giveaway series is going to be commencing soon, so please stay tune!
- Witch-Blog has a cute New Year journal to offer you, go check it out.
- Resolution: Obtain 1,000 Facebook Followers by the end of 2012 (if you can help me do that, I do appreciate it)
That’s all folks! A new year has begun and there are new looks to be had and new goals to be set. Thank you for sticking with me as I continue to venture on this wild journey of becoming America’s Future Talk Show Host.
