I Need Your Help

It’s getting close to the time that the designer I’m working with is going to be starting on this site.  Yay!!

The thing is that I’m not a designer, by any stretch of the imagination.

I’m sitting here filling out the design questionaire and I just don’t know exactly what I want.

I know that I want the design concept to be completely different than my blogger blog.  I’ve liked and enjoyed it the past couple of years but I need to move on from the scrapbook look.

If you were me, and I think a lot of you kind of at least have somewhat of an idea of what I might like, what kinds of graphics or whatnot would you add?  Should it have something (no idea what) to do with infertility being that I’m Infertile Myrtle?  Or should I just stay away from that?

The colors I’m leaning towards are teals, browns, grays, that sort of thing.  I know that I want at least one picture in the header, which I have yet to figure out.

Will you guys just start throwing out ideas for me?  I’m SO lost and I want this site to be FABULOUS, but my non-designer brain is confuzzled.

Thanks for any of your ideas!!!



  1. Hi! I’ve been seeing some new trends out there lately with fun, whimsical, and bold headers that look so polished and cute at the same time! I hate to be copy cat-ish but here is one that really catches my eye (and I would love to have done to mine if I had just redone it…) http://www.inthiswonderfullife.com.


    • Hi Hillary!
      Very nice design. I definitely appreciate that you took the time to link me to something you like.
      I’ll look forward to checking out your blog, too!

  2. Gosh I SO wish I was a designer and/or more creative-minded!:( I love the colors you’re considering. I know I personally always love seeing photos at the top of the blogger/blogger’s family..hmm..and as far as doing something related to your blog name, I think I would definitely do that, but also make it versatile enough that it can translate later on if you decide to go in a different direction? Sorry I’m not much help! Hopefully others or the designer him/herself will be able to offer up more ideas. Good luck!!

  3. Hey there lady! I nominated you for the Liebster blog award. Not totally sure what it is, but I was nominated and it sounds fun so go check it out. 🙂

  4. I wish you lots of luck on your new blog! I’m living with infertility myself and have started blogging as a way of distracting myself from the two week wait. Infertility is so taboo, so much so that the internet seems the only safe place to be open about it. Thanks for sharing your blog, I look forward to following you!

    • Hi Catherine!
      Thank you so much!
      The internet certainly makes it easier to write about the things going on in our lives and in our hearts when we can be somewhat anonymous. 🙂 I’ll check out your blog!

  5. Megan, I wanted to say Hi and see how you were doing. I don’t know anything about the new blog stuff, but hope to get caught up reading yours soon. Why did you change ? I updated my blog today. Hope to talk soon. Have missed you my friend.

    • Hi Friend! 🙂
      I need to get caught up with you too!
      I decided to change for a few reasons. I wanted an update and a new look. I wanted my own URL (even though I could’ve done it on Blogger) and I was so beyond annoyed with the comments constantly getting deleted by osmosis that I just needed to do something new. Hopefully this will be the change I was looking for. 🙂 SO good to hear from you!
