It's no secret that I am a novice blogger. New to blogging and new to the Blogger platform as well. I am proud that I was able to muddle through and create some semblance of a functional blog. That being said, it wasn't beautiful. It also lacked some major technical aspects such as social media buttons and appropriate pages. I was fumbling with some tutorials, which were like reading Greek to me, and then it donned on me - It was an, "AH HA", moment. There is someone out there who can get this done, better than I can, and in no time at all.
Lilipop Designs was just the "someone", I needed to whip my blog into shape. First, Jessica designed my lovely new header and template design. She was kind enough to bear with my many womanly whims and adjust it to my liking a few times. Thanks again, Jessica! The new colors combined with a simple, clean, classic, yet fun design are just what I was looking for. My new template has all the things a blogger could want! It's all there: social media icons, pages, my own signature, and a widget that shows my current giveaways. I think I am in love.
After finalizing the draft of my template Jessica then installed it. Yes, no need for me to risk tinkering with HTML, this blog designer installs your design for you too. I have to tell you that this was one of my biggest worries about the process. What if I tried to do it myself, messed up one dot or slash, and ruined the whole blog? I just don't think I could bare to start from scratch. Needless to say, I was relieved and thrilled when Jessica installed the design for me!
I hope you like my new blog layout as much as I do! I'm so thrilled with it! If you are contemplating starting a blog or have a blog that needs a fun little revamp I am happy to offer a giveaway from Lilipop Designs. Jessica is offering one lucky reader a Blogger pre-made template of your choice, with installation, as a giveaway. I'm also excited to announce that this giveaway is open internationally!
