I've never had my blog "done" and didn't even realize that I wanted a makeover until I won one in a giveaway and the person who was supposed to give it away decided not to give it away. I had to reach out to her after I won and then all but that 1st e mail went totally ignored. How rude is that? I absolutely do not blame the blogger who hosted the giveaway. She in good faith hosted the giveaway on her blog and the designer in very poor taste reneged on her obligation. This person is a blogger and lucky for her I'm not interested in calling anybody out so I'll just leave it at that.
I'm not a blogger pro so I never saw a blogger makeover as something I should consider for myself but after I had it dangled in front of my face then snatched away I realized that I actually did want a new look for my blog. I spent hours making my own social media icons. Hours! I realized there was nothing I could do about my header and left it at that. Then fellow photographer turned blogger turned blog designer Lauren of Choosing Joy stepped in. She was sweet enough to offer her services and I took her up on it. I sent all the information she asked for and quicker then I ever expected I had an image of a layout customized just for me. I'm a control freak so I have to admit it was a little scary to relinquish control when I wasn't sure how it all worked. But Lauren, how is this stuff all going to get on my blog? Lauren, what if I want to change something? I hope I didn't drive her nuts.
I'm very happy with the new look. She did a great job. It's clean, basic and slightly girly. It totally fits me. I'm not sure why I felt that I needed to have XXXX amount of followers or be some kind of blog mogul in order for my blog to be worthy of a make over. I'm on here darn near every single day. I love blogging. I love my blog. I've been doing this for a while now and I don't plan on quitting any time soon if ever. I might as well have a unique fun design of my own. New Year...new blog design.
