Let's spruce things up.
I’ve been pondering a new blog design for a bit now. Seeing as how my photoshop skills are nonexistent, I can’t do it on my own. You know all about my financial woes though, so I’m left in a bit of a conundrum.
I absolutely adore Meghan’s new design, but Lulapalooza is a bit too pricey for me (although $120 for an entire re-design is starting to look on the cheap side of things). Meghan did suggest a couple of other options for me: Creative Index actually has the same rate for a full blog re-design, and unfortunately Wonder Forest's work didn't really align with my style. And point being, I just didn’t love any of them as much as I love Lulapalooza.
This brings me to a few questions for you lovely readers…
1. Is it worth it to spend money on a customized blog design if I a) I have a difficult time consistently posting and b) I don’t actually make any money on my blog?
2. Based on speculation, will a customized/better design attract more readers (not that my basis/goal for blogging is to have tons of readers)?
3. Tell me who you’ve used for your blog designs!
