the one for your blog

i just wanted to throw some tips out there for all you new bloggers or for those who don't like technology and try to know as little as possible :)

there are some great FREE sites where you can find some really cute FREE blog backgrounds and even headers. ((i will warn you, customizing your own header even from an already made template is much more complicated than just getting a cute background :) ))

ive listed some sights below that i would suggest. when you go to download one of their designs, they will give you step by step instructions on how to do it - but if you have any trouble, feel free to ask me and id love to help you out!

they way i approach my blog design is that it is an ever evolving work-in-progress. i just changed my header but that doesn't mean that i won't change it again in a month! i don't really like the whole "change your background every season/holiday of the year" trend...but i think it's fun to keep your blog looking fresh and fun and reflective of your style. i also like really simple, pretty backgrounds that let your writing & posts take center stage without distracting craziness going on behind.

my new header - for now :)

  1. My question is...When can Nicole come do this for me? I hardly know my own house style, I don't have much clothing style, so I'm definitely lacking in blog style...
