JUMP RIGHT IN......
So, I have. Now, for years I have blogged my experiences fly fishing and fly tying, and, used several picture headers to display my blog effects. For some reason, I never committed to having a Blog Logo. Something identifiable that other BlogBuddies and readers of my blog could use as a way of recognizing in connection with fly tying and fly fishing that my blog truly does have an I.D. I know I have really dragged my feet on this and procrastinated for way too long.
In my previous post I wrote about how I had been very fortunate to win a Sketch of a toothy Northern Pike and a book from Ralph at Ralph's Fly Box. I was so impressed with Ralph's sketch that I gave some thought to contacting Ralph to see if he would be interested in doing a sketch that I could use for my Blog Logo and Blog Header on my blog. I had no idea if Ralph had the time or the interest in helping me, but, I thought what the heck did I have too lose. So I followed through by contacting Ralph and tossed out my idea and checked on the feasibility of him helping me out. Well, Ralph and I spent a day communicating back and forth via email and discussed what I wanted, how I wanted it too look, and other layout details. Ralph did all the rest.
I cannot begin to tell you, Ralph, how you have breathed new life into my blog with your work. Ralph was very quick and before two days had gone by I had a new logo for the blog that you see above. I made some layout changes based on discussion with Ralph and today you see the end product.
Ralph and I would really love to have your opinions of what you see and how it appears from your end of the blogging and internet world.
We need your feedback and as Ralph said "Be Honest With Us."
Note also some blogging direction I have taken here. An Ol' Geezer needs to stay focused!
"Packing Fun Into Your Fly Tyin' & Fly Fishin' - Focusing On Panfish - Where The Fun All Began....."
Thinking back, The Bluegill was my first love fly fishing and fly tying. The Fun they provided got me started on this life trek. So, this is my way of paying the little Panfish back for all it has done for me.
