|OMG! You're changing what?|
When I first began posting I was just starting on my journey into mommyhood, not yet even pregnant. Now, just over a year later, I have a beautiful daughter and my path to becoming a mommy is now complete, yet far from over. Now I'm into the fun part, actually being a mom rather than becoming a mom. With all the changes that have occurred in my life, it seems natural to let the blog follow those changes. Although it is now officially retired, I'm sure you all remember my old title and logo:
|Sorry for the slight blur, but had to enlarge it just a tad.|
Fast forward to today...
I have been contemplating changing my title and logo for awhile now, anyone who follows along on
Facebook is probably well aware of this. However, until yesterday I was sort of stumped how to go about making the changes I wanted. I toyed with changing the title to Single Modern Mom in order to reflect my domain name. Then again, I am hoping to one day actually turn singlemodernmom.com into a website with many various parts. Under that notion, I wanted to keep the blog title separate from the .com portion. after much mulling and contemplating, it hit me! When the title Conceiving Piper came to mind, I instantly knew where to go.
I like the "Conceiving" part because not only does it contain a portion of my last title, it also, when used in the new title, reflects an idea of more than just getting pregnant and having a baby. The new title, in conjunction with the actual blog, allows the "conceiving" part to encompass it's full myriad of definitions. Goodness knows I like a play on words, and it fits perfectly with that love!
I also love using Piper in the title. After all, she is the reason I do all this. From the first idea of her to her actual being, all of my blog focuses around her...even the acts of kindness since she is what inspired me to do them and she is the one I want to learn from them in the future. So having her name in the title, well it just seemed obvious.
After I had a new working title, it was simple to come up with the thumbnail logo. I simply took my favorite picture of Piper, dropped it into Photoshop, and played around with stylizing the title over it. Initially I had just "Conceiving Piper" on the logo.

|The final draft, I personally love it!|

Well there you have it, the inside scoops on the small changes you may have noticed. I hope the changes draw in new readers and do not keep old readers from coming back, but I guess only time will tell. In the meantime, please drop my a vote over at Top Baby Blogs, where I still remain an active member and will continue to do so even if I also move over to Top Mommy Blogs, their sister site.
Also, please feel free to come join me on my other social sites by following the links below. For all things Piper all the time, I highly recommend at least joining us on Facebook, where I post daily.
