We recently had the pleasure of designing a super fun watercolor styled custom design for Erica from Tiny Toes and Tuk Tuks. Erica is living a life of adventure in South East Asia and we are excited to give you the chance to meet her. So without further ado, meet Erica…
What made you decide to start a blog?
My husband and I work in South East Asia and it gets hard to keep in touch with people back home. I recently gave birth to a baby girl and I desperately wanted to friends and family back home to feel like they are a part of her life. I also wondered how many other people living abroad share the same feelings as me. So I decided to create a blog and write honest and raw posts about the difficulties/ joys of living far from home and ways to cope. Tiny Toes and Tuk Tuk’s was created out of a desire to stay in touch and relate to other people in my position.
What has been the biggest unexpected perk or bonus of your site and being online?
It is too early to tell, but I am hoping the biggest perk will be other people sharing in my experience and feeling less alone because of it. SO many people live in countries other than their home countries and experience similar emotions and cultural experiences and it is my desire that we can all support one another.
Tell us about the design makeover process? How did you choose the colors, fonts and ideas that inspire your personal brand?
Because I am writing about living in south east Asia while raising a child, the title of tiny toes and tuk tuks just seemed fitting. I wanted soft colors that are reminiscent of childhood as well as an Asian flair. I feel that the overall product reflects my personality as well as the purpose of the blog. I wanted the colors to be aesthetically pleasing and the fonts to be fun and girly. I hope people all over the world enjoy the blogs combination of travel and parenting.
How did you find / hear about Designer Blogs?
Before choosing Designer Blogs, I had a terrible time finding a blog designer that would not rip me off! I hired one lady to create a blog for me and she took my money and ran. I was very disappointed! But then I discovered Designer Blogs and everything was extremely professional. I had confidence that this would be a good choice and I was SO right! My blog designer Lindsey was terrific at hearing my vision and making it appear on my blog. Everything was created extremely fast and so I was not left waiting forever to receive my product. I am a first time blogger and was learning everything from scratch and Lindsey was nice enough to always answer my questions and walk me through step by step actions in order to understand my blog. Overall I would choose Designer Blogs over and over again!
