Project 6

Site Icon Choice

I decided to do a pink heart for my site icon because my favorite color is pink and I like hearts so I thought it was fitting. I also like the idea of customizing it with my initials.

Site Icon Process

I used vectr a graphics editor to make this icon. I chose my shape and edited the size and color. I then added my initials and edited the color and font. Lastly I exported my image as a 512 x 512 pixel png. so I could upload it to my site.

Header Image Choice

I chose this header because I liked the background design and that I could add my name in the corner. I also wanted a template that I could add images to since it is for my personal website and I thought it made it more personable.

Header Image Process

For my header I used Canva another graphic design tool. The program is fairly easy to use I found the template I liked and thought would work best as my header and then customize it with my blog name and images. I then saved it as a PNG. so I could upload it to my site.

Welcome To My Blog!

The name of my blog is Cait Burch’s Blog. I choose this name because all of my friends refer to me as Cait or Cait Burch so I thought it would be fitting to use this as my blog name. I also believe it will be easier to remember and I like the simplicity of it.
