2 Years

This is the Second Blogiversary of Madam Too Much.  Many Thanks to all of you who take the time to visit, leave comments and/or read my musings. I have enjoyed creating in this space. Although I have been blogging since 2010, the past two years have been a blessing to me.  This blog is the best Therapy that I can afford and I’m so grateful for the friendships cultivated here. Recently, I did a overhaul on the blog, put my DIY skills to the test & I’m kinda happy with the new decor.  Yes. I am that gal who likes to redecorate every so often & change my surroundings.  A lot. My Sistas already know this about me. So, this will not be the last revision. When boredom enters my space, I have to do something substantial. Usually some retail therapy does the trick, but not lately.  As much as I loved the MTM Peacock, I kinda got tired of it.  Yes. . it meant a lot to me in re-inventing myself from the old Kurves.blogspot to Madam Too Much.com. But like everything else, change was gonna come.So, it was decided that a slight blog revision including a new Logo may just do the trick.  The Peacock Logo . . . . . Being “too much” is associated with “Proud as a Peacock“. . . Thus, someone who is “proud as a peacock” is similarly “too much”. . . . . was relative to me then and still does today. I’m just as proud as ever (like 5 Peacocks proud!) but free peacock prints are hard to come by and I could not DIY a good representation. Really!

A unique logo was always what I wanted, not a copy or a picture with a name on it. I did not have the budget to purchase art work and not about to spend my gift money. Besides, I blog for Fun & this blog does not produce any income for extravagant spending.  Instant gratification from a DIY is always so good for the soul, and this soul was in need. So, I spent two days trying to design something and this logo was born. The next day after breakfast I was ready for more, and worked on several optional logo variations, created some gifs for the sidebar and added a new photo.

As of yesterday, I was still making changes but I love the color scheme now. This blog is a work in progress, and I can assure you that there will always be changes. I certainly hope you are not dismayed by my change.it.now.attitude because I really live in the Now & this is just how I roll.  Thanks for stopping by and reading this mumbo jumbo.  What do you think of the decor?

** Thanks for Visiting. I thrive on the comments I receive, and appreciate You. Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin  & Google+ for new post updates, and on Pinterest. **

    Happy blog anniversary, Neti! I cannot believe it’s been two years! I love the new logo, sis! This blog will always provide the right amount of laughter, information, and sass no matter what the logo is. Coming here to interact with you has been a pleasure. I am looking forward to more posts this year.

    Changes is good and I love the changes here Mz Neti. You’ve done a great job with the logo. I designed my own as well and proud of it. A friend was saying I might not appeal to brands with that and I said, “F that! It’s unique and African. – And that’s me!” Lol!! I enjoy visiting your blog. Keep the posts coming and happy birthday to the blog. All the best dear.

      I love your unique logo too and you should be proud. And guess what? No one else has it. A good DIY is good for the soul and I have lots of time on my hands to do them. Thanks Sis.
