I've been wanting to do a redesign for a while now, but I honestly had no idea where to start. This time around I was set on paying someone to do it for me versus using PicMonkey and doing it myself. The problem is, I didn't know how describe what I wanted to a designer, because I didn't know what I wanted. I liked the last design that was created for me, but I honestly didn't love it, and for that reason it only stayed up for a couple of months.
In an attempt to save my sanity (and some money), I went the pre-made route and found some templates for sale on Etsy that I really liked. The thing I liked best about pre-made blog designs is that I could see exactly what I was getting up front.
After searching for a while, I decided on a design from Kelsey. Her instructions made it totally simple to install myself, and she even included a bunch of extra little extras (such as the hex codes and font names used in the design) all at a great price!
Since our guests left yesterday, John and I used the day to recover. Who knew vacation could be so exhausting?! While he napped, I spent some time on the computer creating extra graphics and reworking html. There are still a few things that need to be tweaked, but they'll gradually get done. I hope.
In the mean time, I'd like to focus more on blogging and being more dedicated. I purchased a few ad spots last night, but I'm looking to buy some more. Let me know if you're having a sale or if there are any blogs that I absolutely must advertise on! (:
And if you really love me, let's swap...!
