New Blog Design + Giveaway!

Hey guys, so as you can tell my blog looks a little bit different. It's all thanks to the amazing Lea at Lea Christine Designs. So there are a few things that came with the package I selected, and then I had to add a few add-ons to make it perfect. So first off I started with a custom blog makeover which included, one custom designed vector illustration of my choice, a basic header, matching grab button, basic star rating system which I upgraded to a custom rating system, basic post signature (if this is basic I can only wonder what custom looks like), matching color theme (purple, gold, green, and black) and full installation. For add-ons I chose, a custom menu bar, a custom favicon (the little graphic next to the URL), the custom rating system I mentioned above, and 4 custom social media buttons.

So all of that was quite a chunk of change (and her prices have gone up since my design started) but it was all worth it, not only does she listen to what you want in the beginning but she sends constant check ups and previews of the vector graphics and will take our opinions and isn't afraid to edit (I rarely had a complaint, I think it was only once about something small) Not only did she listen to my suggestions but she made my design work together better than I could have thought. When I described what I wanted it didn't fit well in my mind but it had all I wanted and I felt like I was going to have a really weird looking design but she pulled it ll together in an amazing Greek Mythology theme (which I had mentioned I liked) and now we have this breath taking design and layout. If you're looking for a new blog design I can give no higher recommendation than the one I give to Lea Christine Designs, she is an amazing designer and created many layouts that balance the perfect amounts of personalized, playful, and professional.

Now for the fun part. In honor of my new blog makeover I've decided to hold a fun giveaway where the winner will get to pick the prize, sort of, I'm offering one book up to $15 of the winner's choosing from The Book Depository.
