Blog Housekeeping For The New Year

by Cristina

I’m trying a few different headers for my blog for the new year for a little re branding project and I’d love to know what you think. I’m liking the middle header best but I can’t quite get it to the dimensions I need so I went with the top collage (for now).

I like the font and style of lettering on the middle one but also like the collage of photos! 🙂

I like the one you have used as a header except for the white outline around The Sweat Edit makes it look too busy with the lines on the floor and it cuts across your head. If I had to work with this picture, I would crop a little more off the top of the picture and add it to the bottom, get rid of the white outline and make By Lulumum a bit larger. How is that for an amateur editor!!!

Are you still going to keep Lulumum and have a separate blog for The Sweat Edit?

Super excited for the different content you are bringing in. I loved your Paris posts.

@ lulumum I like them all but agree that the By Lulumum should be a bit bigger. Loved your Paris blogs too. I
Showed them to my daughter and she pored over every word as Paris is her dream trip. She's 15 and already saving for it.

I remember you mentioned that before about the blackmail domain purchase. It still shocks and disappoints me that there are such complete losers in the world. They should have their own special island where they can live and scam each other.

No this is going to stay lulumum – exact same content but with a broader title so that I can also do other things I like like beauty posts, or other athletic brands. I wish I could buy back my '' URL but some jerk purchased it years ago and will sell it back to me for $3000. My daily content stays the same, right here. I just want to do more blogging and bring more of myself into it.
Thanks for the suggestions! I'll work on those and see what it looks like.

So glad to hear Lulumum is going to stay the same, I really enjoy all topics you cover and although LLL is not what it once was, IMO, I still like reading your fit reviews, new product drops, etc. Your header pic looks great and so much better without the white border. I like that you want to put more of yourself into your blog which frankly, makes sense, and what I most appreciate about your blog is that I see who you are and feel more connected to what you have to say because of that.

I like the middle one best! Also, looks like there's some new goodies on the WMTM section, at least on the American side (:

I dig the collage you have at the top! You look powerful!

You look great! I like the one you're currently showing. I just wish you could easily edit out the person sitting behind you.

I see you have "" in one of them. I know you stated everything will stay right here but will you be moving to that address?

Good for you for bringing more of yourself into it! I've always enjoyed your other topics/posts outside of LLL. On beauty and skin care, you're very knowledgeable, including the history of products/brand/manufacturing! I don't know half as much as you when it comes to fashion and hot names/trends 🙂

Thanks! I do too! I wish I was better at photoshop.
I haven't decided on that, and am leaning towards 'no'. Ideally I would use '' but that's not available. If it was, I'd snatch it up in a heartbeat. For right now I'm keeping the URL as is. If I did change it though, you would just get redirected from my old address to my new address and it would be pretty seamless.
The next change to roll out though in the next few days is an overhaul of my website. It's going to look so much better, and hopefully be a lot faster and more intuitive for finding specific content like my more specialized posts about skincare, beauty and fashion.

I like the 2nd one from the top, it's clean looking, simple yet sophisticated.

2nd from the bottom 🙂

Please take this as the purely constructive and aesthetic criticism that it meant to be, but I don't like the way the middle photo of you isn't in focus. I feel like it takes away from the strength that you are portraying, and also your legacy as a blog that has been around for a decade or so. I think you should get someone to take a better photo of you. I also find the superimposed text over the collage of images to be a bit busy. I actually really like the collage better than the single image, though. Have you considered having the text as a banner above the images, rather than superimposed?

I like the second from the bottom! The one with the open rectangle around the text.

I like the broken box one the best. It's the most unusual. Also great name! If you're branding though, something more computer graphics is easier and more memorable than photographs. Side note: Is there a way to be able to zoom in on product photographs in the posts? Every time I click it takes me to a shopping website or if I use my fingers on my touchscreen to zoom, it sends me to another post.

Wowwwwwwww! I love what you did with the blog refresh! It looks amazing!
