Folio Red

New Name, Icon, and Purpose

I've been thinking about what I'm hoping to use this blog for. Surprise, surprise, I've been thinking about using it to record things I've worked on. But this time, it'll be a record of things that are either finished, or have reached a natural stopping point. My existing blog will be used for work in progress. This one will be for work that's done (and I won't feel bad about writing about it).

I've also been thinking about the name. While I like the name Folio, it's a tad tricky to find a suitable domain for it (yes, I admit it; I bought a domain. I have a problem 😏). I found one I liked that was available: I've been saying it to myself all day, and the more I said it, the more I liked it as the name of the blog itself.

So this blog is hence called Folio Red.

This also works out as I previously recored project work in a Day One journal which was also given the colour red.

Naturally, a red colour scheme would need a red icon to match. So after a few more minutes in Acorn, here's what I've come up with:

This blogging engine is still in early preview so I can't set up the domain just now. I've setup a redirect though, so at least I'll be able to look at it.
