Ask For Help!

I continue to go around the blog world and I see ugly blogs. I realize that many new bloggers want to add their own style. They want a unique header, they want personlization and individuality but they lack the ability to do either.

Some people out there are nice enough to spend their time designing templates for bloggers for free. And there are also lots of tools that can help you to design and create something for yourself, or just slightly edit something that someone else designed.

Some of my favorite blogger template sites are:

Blog Jacket
Blogger Templates
Noipo.org
blogplates

Of course BlogJacket is my side business and so I want you to go to that one and use mine, but if you aren't going to use my templates, then I want you to know where to find others that are FREE!

One thing to remember, when it comes to something new, don't expect to get it right the first time. If you like to design, then practice, practice, practice. Few people are blessed with abilities, normally their abilities are achieved through years of hard work and repitition.

Also, I use PowerPoint to design most of my images and I also use Clip Art and Photoshop to edit my images. Don't try to reinvent the wheel, just improve upon it!

And lastly, never be afraid to ask for help. There are people that will be more than happy to assist you with your design ideas and your tweaking. I am one of those people.

Happy Blogging!

Eddo really helped me a lot with my new design. I asked and help was readily available. This is my first re-design and I had a hard time finding answers, but in the end it was really easy.

When it comes to help, I'm sure I need some. It seems that it comes naturally for some people and yet others struggle with it.

I know I need a catchy template and fancy features, but I really struggle with content.

I love people and interacting with them so I thought I'd be good at blogging. Turns out it is pretty tough.

If any one reads this, I'd sure appreciate it if you could stop by my site and give it a critique

I have no idea what to do with my blog. I want to keep it pink (this blog is for my daughter, favorite color, PINK!) but I just think it looks too blah. I am also afraid to mess with it becuase I don't want to mess up, or loose anything.
