Taking Steemit Seriously With A Design Giveaway {Round 2}

3년 전

Wow! I can't believe it's been 3 weeks since I did the last giveaway. I hadn't planned on waiting that long, but time just slipped away.

This is part of my "taking Steemit seriously" initiative. It's also a way that I hope to make this community a better place ... by encouraging generosity and modeling it! I wrote about this in a recent post, "Want To Know How To Make It Big And Become A Whale?"


For the first 5 comments, I'll design a custom footer for you! No need to even upvote, just comment!

Details you need to include in your comment:

  1. The link to your intro blog or other content so I can learn more about you.
  2. Three adjectives that describe your Steemit persona or your blog.
  3. A picture (that belongs to you), logo, avatar, etc. that you want included in the footer (optional).
  4. The hex color codes for your favorite colors and neutrals, so I can make sure they're exact.
  5. That's it! I'll design a custom footer for you!
    Click HERE to see the designs from last round.


    Because this is a giveaway, here are a couple things you should know:

  • If there's something you really hate about it, I can edit it once for you. If you still don't like it, you don't have to use it :)
  • It'll come with a discreet attribution on it that says: designed by @helenoftroy. Hopefully you'll like it so much, you'll want to send others my way for future giveaways!
  • Keep in mind, it's the first five who get their very own CUSTOM BLOG FOOTER.
  • And if you miss out, don't worry! I plan on doing this later on too.

    Date & Method of Delivery

    Right now, I can't guarantee how long the designs will take. Last time it took me a week to complete them.

    Your custom footer will appear in a future blog and I'll tag your profile (if you have Ginabot or Steemify, then you should receive a notification there depending on your settings). I'll also reply to your comment below so you can check your Steemit replies list.

    Okay, I think that's it! Don't forget to include all FOUR things that I need to make your unique brand image!

    And don't worry the next segment in the twin blog will be back on Sunday!

Hello HelenofTroy, my blog is about health, family, motivation.

I love green, purple, black, happy shiny things.
I am looking forward to following you and getting to know you! Thank you!


My husband @derangedvisions took this picture!


#1 Yay! I’m looking forward to making this for you and getting to know you better! I loved your husband’s post about you being his hero :) I’ll let you know when it’s done!

This is an awesome thing you are doing for everyone. I don't need one, but I am telling my wife @faitherz33 to follow you and comment on this as well.


Thank so much! I’ll come back and upvote your comment when it’s recharged a bit :)

Thanks for the great work!

#2 Cool! I’m excited to design this for you! I’ve been enjoying your translation of the Yoruban sayings :)


Thank you!!!

I just ran across your post and generous offer of a Steemit blog footer. That's so nice of you! I have a project that I'll be rolling out soon. And I would love to have a nice footer for it. It's the @foragersclub. My goal is that it's the base for a community of foragers here on Steemit -- appreciating nature's bounty for food, crafts, and other projects (but not for medicine or psychotropic use).

Long, long ago in Steemit-time, I curated for the @foraging-trail, but the SteemTrail initiative that fostered the project turned into something else, so the @foraging-trail project isn't active any more. The reason I'm mentioning that, is because my links for you mention the @foraging-trail and the SteemTrail. But what's in them will apply to the @foragersclub, NOT the foraging-trail.

Here are two links that should give you an idea of what the @foragersclub is all about: Building a Foraging Community on Steemit and Curation List 9. These 2 post might help you get to know me a little better: Collection of My Past Mushroom Posts and 17 Weeks of Eating Wild Plants, Mushrooms, and Homestead Harvests, if that makes any difference.

I don't have a color palette or fonts already. But here are some links that show colors that are something like I would like. Any of the 4 would be fine, or something like that.

  1. house paint from the 1920s – Top left and bottom right houses
  2. Bottom 2 colors and the yellow
  3. The house + a yellow
  4. Any colors but not the reds

Here are some example fonts that I like. They convey the idea of sticks or being in the woods.

  1. Pinewood font -
  2. Woodland Wanderer -
  3. Camping

It seems like nouns, verbs or phrases would work better than adjectives: enjoy nature's bounty, food, crafts, share, learn, fun.

If you could put my name and tag somewhere on there, that would be nice, too -- Haphazard Homestead -- @haphazard-hstead

For photos, it would be nice to have mushrooms and dandelions in the image somewhere. Here are photos of mine as examples: I like the mushrooms in the basket. And I like how the dandelions are scattered around in the grass.




If all this sounds like too much, let me know. I'm no graphics person, so it seems like a lot to me! Thank you for your offer and considering my request!


I just saw your post and the footer you made. It is so much better than anything I could have imagined! Thanks so much! It's so cool.


#3 Lots of great information to go on! I'll do my best and see if I can come up with something you like :) Stay tuned!

I'm so glad to see you doing this again! It's a wonderful idea :)


Thanks, @nortjenn! It makes me happy whenever I read your post and see the footer there :) And I feel like I got to know you better through the project!


Yes it was a great way to get to know someone new! I am so glad I found your post, I love my footer and I really enjoy reading your blog and talking with you! Can't wait to see the new ones!

muy genial yo la felicito y que tengas éxito
