When I set up this blog, one of the first things I wanted was a cartoon version of myself to represent my online presence. What I got was a pretty decent design, but for some reason I accepted a caricature of myself with browny-gingerish hair.
Looking back, I’m not sure why.
I am blonde, and for years this avatar with a different hair colour has represented my blog. If you’re visiting on desktop, it’s one of the first things you’ll see – the logo, accompanied by “TRAVELLING TOM” wording. If you go to my YouTube channel, it’s my avatar, and you’ll see the little guy in the corner of each video – a watermark, if you will.
But it needs a refresh, it needs updating, and once I’ve signed off the new Travelling Tom logo with my designer, a revamp of TravellingTom.com will begin.
It’s been a long time overdue, and earlier in the year, I was even considering moving across to WordPress. While that will happen in due course – at a point where this blog is generating enough money to demonstrate that it is worth the major league hassle that is a website migration – I am going to make the best of this Squarespace site and update its appearance.
Expect changes, an update, a refresh and a better experience for you, me and those who love travel.
