Seek Assistance From the Monkey: PicMonkey

When I first started blogging, I didn’t have the slightest idea about most of what it entailed.  I just knew that I wanted to share with others.  I soon learned the importance of blog design, blog post structure and quality and social media.

Design was not, and is still really not my thing.  But I’ve been a little successful at it with the help of a monkey.  PicMonkey has been one of the best things that has happened to my blog.  It has allowed me to do minimal design without losing my mind.  I was able to create my blog header with PicMonkey.  That task too forever, but I was very happy when I completed it.  

I have used PicMonkey to:

  • design graphics for my post when I did not have a photo to use
  • create a brand watermark for the blog (I use this on all my photos now)
  • edit photos (cropping, resizing, adding text and overlays, and effects)
  • create a logo and FaceBook cover for a non-profit organization
  • make collages with my photos
  • create my media kit 
  • and more!
I want to use PicMonkey to create a logo for my tutoring business.  That is more challenging than I expected because the visual in my head is harder to replicate than I thought.  But I’m going to keep trying until I get it the way I like it.
