With all the extra time I’m gained this Lent by scaling back on Facebook, I decided to start my own web design business…as opposed to say, spending more time with my kids. A few of my online blogging buddies decided to update their sites and I think everyone is please with the new results.
First up was Mary, from Better Than Eden. She’s known for her clean home page and equally spotless white house. However, we decided to freshen things up with a bright and hip graffiti theme and fun new font.
Then Michaela, from the blog formerly known as California to Korea, told me she want to add a more Cali feel to her heavily Korean influenced header. I updated it with some pictures of things California is known for (drought, traffic and earthquakes) while changing the name of her blog to reflect her street thug roots.
Lastly, Cari from Clan Donaldson emailed and told that while she loved her current blog design, she had finally outgrown the Futura font she’s known for and wanted to make the switch to Comic Sans. I was happy to oblige.
And this is just my part-time gig! Although I think with results like this, I’m sure to grow exponentially through word of mouth referrals. If you want to update your blog or website, drop me an email and lets see what we can work out.
Any of these would be desirable modifications to my blog. A picture of weeds would be a desirable modification to my blog. I think you’ve found your next client.
I’m terrified to think of what you’d do with my blog…
I am so grateful for all the work you put into this. Not only the creativity required to put my vision into reality but you were able to read past my woefully inadequate description of “just a little more funk and maybe some eyeballs” and create JUST what I was looking for. I can’t WAIT to see my readership skyrocket. THANK YOU, KELLY!!! Use me as a reference anytime!
P.S. I wanted to leave you five stars on Yelp but can’t seem to find you listed…
I just wanted to thank you again for helping me realize my vision of a truly California-style blog. I think the header is a much much better reflection of who I am as a person, and what California is really like.
Best wishes with your new business venture!
Happy April Fools Day to you, too.
You wouldn’t happen to be working on an app that can turn all my fonts to Comic Sans, would you?
