Blog Redesign

3…2…1…It’s finally live! Bring on the champagne!

I took a break from blogging as you’ve probably noticed (more on that later) and I felt like I needed to redecorate this place a little. A new beginning needs a new design…it’s kind of like redecorating a new home (and cheaper!).

Blog Relaunch

It’s so easy to do a complete blog design rehaul with all the available pre-made templates available online. I normally lean towards ones that are fully customizable and easy to edit. I know there are so many resources out there for blog designs and Etsy has so many great options!

Mai from MaiLoveParis created my new design and it’s totally affordable. You don’t have to break the bank or go broke when designing a blog. Mai was such a sweetheart and 100% helpful. I purchased directly through Etsy and then Mai installed everything for me. I also purchased a font plugin from Mai so I can further customize my fonts and colors. This is in no way a sponsored post but I loved how helpful Mai was and I just had to share. So go check out her shop if you’re looking for a new blog design.

My header was created and tweaked by Designer Blogs. I kept the purple and black colors from before…I’m still into purple, for now. Posts are also cleaned up, categorized and easier to find now. I’ve left my previous blog host and switched over to SiteGround. I was unhappy with the previous host for a while now and I’ve heard great things about SiteGround so I decided to give them a try. So far their customer service blows my old host out of the water. Hopefully, it remains that way.

Take a look around and I hope you like the new look around here. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    Loving this new look! I recently redesigned my blog too and I find that if I’m struggling to motivate myself to blog, then a new look can often make me enthused to post again!

    Glad you’re back! I love it! I like switching up my theme often also and giving my blog a mini makeover. I’ve purchased several very inexpensive themes from someone on Etsy and they too were very helpful and their directions on how to upload and more were super easy.

    I definitely need to buy a font plugin. I’m so bored with mine and I’d love more options. Was it easy to install?

      Mai actually installed it for within minutes of purchasing it but I would imagine it’s easy to install yourself too

    Really nice design and congrats! I need mine done so bad, but I am in the midst of the blogger vs wordpress dilemma, so need to decide if I am staying on blogger before spending more money . I wish I had never been directed to blogger when I started, now its a big pain to switch! I am not techy at yeah chicken. Anyway I will keep this gal in mind, she did a great job! All the best!
