I really hope this post can help you on your way to a better looking blog, as a total techno dummy, and by dummy I mean I am the woman who would find a dummies guide hard to follow, I am here to tell you that you need no technical knowledge what so ever to have a shiny groovy looking blog.
I took to serious ( ok, stop laughing, semi serious ) blogging back in June this year 6 months ago, and whilst I do have a Wordpress blog, I never use it as I much prefer Blogger, that said, I spent many hours lusting over other peoples blogs along with many wasted hours trying to faff with blogger templates to achieve the same sort of look, only to end up messing up my layout on many occasions. I had seen people advertising blog designs for sale all over Twitter and Etsy, with prices varying from £10.00 into the hundreds, although cost wasn't my main issue at this stage 6 months into the game I wasn't about to throw money into something I wouldn't be able to grasp. My research led me to an online company called Pipdig, Phil is simply a god with the patience of a saint. I chose my design from the range and at £29.00 I thought "what the heck" if I cant use it then it's not a huge amount of money to lose.
I didn't think it would be possible for it to be this easy, from making the payment, I was contacted instantly, the blog was created within around 24 hours, and I had to do do NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING, Phil loaded it and let me know when it was done...........I couldn't have been more pleased.
The only problem was choosing from the array of fab designs, if you are thinking of having a new design or simply a little refresh, then Pipdig is the company for you, I am thinking of changing the scheme every year or so, a bit like decorating the house :)
