fall 2020 blogging changes!

Hello! It’s a cool fall day here in Georgia, and this is Maggie coming at you on Chickadee Lover Maggie. Thanks so much for being here!

Guess WHAT! I have redesigned my blog for fall! *dances around happily* I’ve been working on it yesterday and today, and a few bloggers have already noticed the changes (shoutout to Haley, Eleanor, and Lrose)! But I wasn’t quite done with the whole redesign when they saw it, so I’ll be sharing all the little (and big) changes I made in this post. 😉

One thing before I get into this post. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO IN LOVE WITH A FEATURED IMAGE BEFORE. The leaf border from PicLab is perfect!!!

fall 2020 blogging updates!

— new signoff! I made it using a floral picture from Unsplash, added some text on RookieCam, then superimposed my chickadee pic from Pixabay onto it!

— updated home page. I kept the same basic layout, then changed the colors, pictures, a bit of the text, and added a ‘recommended reads’ section!

— changed my background image! I found the design on Pixabay and I love it so much!

— changed my link/menu color! This really pulls it all together. ❤

— updated my chickadee picture! All I did was screen a color on top of it on the app Superimpose and it now goes really well with my new color scheme! 😀

changed the theme for my featured images + color of headings. I’ve been using the font ‘Wild Youth’ from RookieCam more, and I’m transitioning into picking warm palettes for my featured images and color blocks!

— updated my Pinterest logo + page color themes. Everything’s pretty much the same aside from the color change. lol

— created category pages! My theme doesn’t support square featured images ;-; so I have to make custom pages for my blog page and the categories for them to appear the way I’d like. It took time but I’m really happy with the results!

— added my favorite album to my sidebar! I share a birthday with Mandy Moore, so why not feature her on my blog haha (also her shirt peRFECTLY matches my fall theme!!!)

— changed my profile picture! I loved that Irish book photoshoot ❤ ❤ ❤


Thanks sooo much for reading! Fall is such a gorgeous time of year and I love that my blog reflects that. (It seriously looks *scented* haha!)

  1. Thanks for the shout-out! The colors are amazing!!
    As for candles… I cannot stand strong scented candles (#allergic), but I love the scent of apples, cinnamon, and pine needles (is that Christmas scent though?)

    Anyways, your new design looks great!

  2. Ahh! It’s always so exciting to redesign our own blogs and give them a new fresh theme. Such a lovely Fall re-design, Maggie! Will you be doing the same for every season? Now I’m excited to see the other ways you re-design it 😍
