From the moment you get that positive pregnancy test, your life will never be the same. Motherhood changes things….for the better of course! I love being a mom and can’t imagine a life without my sweet kiddos in it! As you navigate through those first few days and weeks as a new mom, things can sometimes be a little stressful. I took some time to create an infographic for you, full of my best advice for new moms. Check it out!
What do you think of my very first infographic?! I know I’ve seen them all over (they’ve become quite popular these days!) and I always thought it would be cool to be able to make them myself for blog posts. The problem is, (despite what you might think since I run a blog) I’m not too great with HTML, graphics, designing, etc. I usually leave that work up to someone else. I hired someone to design my site and my husband made my owls for me. So, although I wanted to make my own infographics, I just didn’t think I could……until now! I found a program that makes creating infographics SO easy, anyone can do it — even me! It’s called BeFunky, and with their new Designer program, you can create all kinds of amazing things: infographics, step-by-step instructional pictures, blog images, blog title graphics, and more!
Now, if you don’t run a blog or own a business, you might be thinking, why would I care how to make an infographic?! I’m never going to make one. Well, have you ever seen those adorable Milestone Infographics that people create for their own children? They are adorable! You can order them from Etsy, but I’ve seen them priced anywhere from $60-$100+. That’s just too much for me! With BeFunky, YOU can make your own, without paying those expensive costs. I made this infographic about Jacob all by myself:
I LOVE it! What do you think? I want to make one for each of my kids on their birthdays every year.
So, the real question is, how hard was it, right? Well, I made it in less than an hour. It was really pretty simple! First, I selected a template I liked.
I chose this one because I liked the colors already and the fact that it was numbered. The template is fully customizable though, so you can easily change the colors, sizes, shapes, etc. of just about anything you want. Once I had picked the template I wanted to use, then I just went in and changed out the graphics at the top and of course, edited what each of the text spots said. It couldn’t have been easier! You could personalize these even more by adding photos of your child too.
The BeFunky designer tools are really easy to use – I didn’t even need to read any instructions. Just play around with the controls and you’ll quickly learn all of the great things this program has to offer. Truly, there is no limit to what you can do with BeFunky! Best of all – BeFunky is FREE to use! Once you try it (and love it) you have the option to upgrade to a paid account which gives you ad-free access & extra features for just a small monthly or yearly fee.
