Just about a year since my first blog redesign, I got the itch to do it again. I've heard and believe that when you buy your first house you have an idea of what you want, then within months of moving in you know exactly what you want in your second house. I think the same may be true for blog design.
While I loved my first real blog design, it was uncharted territory. Since commissioning Beautiful Dawn Designs for my first design, I've learned so much. First off, I've developed specific web design preferences. I've also learned there is a ton of coding information available online, specifically through Code It Pretty. I've also learned about the marketplace of premade blogger templates available on Etsy for a fraction of the cost of a custom design.
In the last few weeks, I've been obsessing a bit over the various templates available on Etsy. Initially I was looking for a watercolor inspired template but then I found the simple, beautiful template by Bella Lulu Ink that you see now. I couldn't get the template out of my head so I knew it was the one to go with. Working with Bella Lulu was a dream! Chelsea, the Etsy shop owner, provided thorough instructions on how to install the template and was available for questions. I'd recommend her to anyone.
Here's hoping you enjoy the new design as much as I do.
