Soooo it’s been a little while since I’ve posted. Blogging roadblocks number one and two:
Anyway. I’m back and ready to rock.
First off, how awesome does this space look?! It is all because of Amanda over at Amanda Loves Blogging. I initially met Amanda at the MN Bloggers Favorite Things Party earlier this year. She has recently ventured into the land of blog design. And OMG. I’m so glad she did!! It all fell into place very quickly and the blog gods worked their magic.
In November I attended a blog conference and then a blog workshop a few days later. I’ve never lost my love for blogging, but I lost my motivation to find the time to write. And that week I decided things are going to change around here.
One problem was I just didn’t like how this space looked. I was kinda embarrassed to share with people because I just wasn’t happy with the design. I started researching designers and what I wanted to create for my space here. It was really overwhelming for me.
Then, the blog gods took over. My Beth tagged me in a Facebook comment under one of Amanda’s posts. Amanda had just announced her new design business. And she was offering ah-MAZ-ing discounts for her first batch of customers. Ummm, yes please!
I hopped over to her site to peek around. I loved the look of it and it was totally my style. And then I saw the redo she did on Beth’s blog. So polished and so cute! I was getting so excited for my turn!
Let me tell you, Amanda was so awesome to work with. Communicating exclusively through email can be tricky, but she was great at laying out the whole timeline and she was so thorough with explaining what was going to happen! We went back and forth with color schemes and how the blog should look overall. A few of the things were over my head, so I just trusted Amanda’s suggestions.
Amanda was so great to work with! Patient with me, dumbed it down when I needed it, and just overall super friendly. She really cares about her clients happiness, and that shows in everything she does.
I am over the moon happy with how the blog looks now. Like really really in love. And I can not thank Amanda enough for turning my vague ideas into a place I love and can’t wait to share with everyone! So go to her site, and look around and HIRE HER to make your blog look beautiful. And tell her I say, “HI!”
