Logos have never been my strong point in design. But they help in branding, so I made a logo a month ago for this blog. However, the old one’s colours didn’t match perfectly with the website colour scheme, so I thought “well, I’ll make a completely different one.” So I recently made a new logo which replaced the old simplistic one.
This one stands out a little more. If you’re reading this via email or a feed reader, go to WritersTreasure.com to view the new logo.
What do you think of it? Is it better? Or is it worse? Please comment with your likes, dislikes, suggestions and more.
I personally love the new logo (I made it myself). But if the majority of you don’t like it, it can always be changed.
One more thing: my contact form has been broken for weeks. Sorry.
What happened was this: Originally I was using Contact Form 7 as the plugin to generate the form. I was getting some spam and I had this idea of using a new form which had Captcha in it. After searching, I found the RECaptcha form. It wasn’t as good as Contact Form 7, but it did have a Captcha field. I thought it was okay.
But the spam didn’t stop. The captcha was unreadable. Terrible user experience.
Today, after weeks, I somehow knew something was not quite right. I tested the form. My suspicions were proved. It didn’t work.
Really! I’ve no idea how much I’ve missed, but please, if anyone of you sent me an email and did not receive a reply and are still reading, please accept my apologies. I’ve since switched back to Contact Form 7, which works very well (and I don’t want any Captcha now, I’ll use other measures later if I find them), and also I’ve given my email address for those want to email me directly, IF the form doesn’t seem to work. If that happens, or if you just like emailing directly, my email address is idrees [at] writerstreasure [dot] com.
So if you’ve got any suggestions, criticism or praise about this website or you want to chat with me, fill this form to email me.
Update: I think I might have just found the perfect solution, the Really Simple Captcha Plugin for Contact Form 7. It uses a much better (in my opinion, and much more readable) Captcha. And the best thing is that I don’t need to change my form. So come on, check it out.
Update: – The design of the website has now been changed. The logo which was there previously is still there, only the colours have been changed. Have a look around and tell me what you think. Thanks for reading.
Newest update: Design refreshed, theme changed and a brand new logo (this one will stay for a long time, I promise). Real branding is achieved now, and if you want to give feedback, you’ll want to head over to WritersTreasure.com to see the changes!
