I’ve been writing/blogging Angry Julie Monday for almost four years now. It has evolved a bit since then. In November of 2009, I made the switch from Blogger to WordPress after having my blog go down without notice several times. This past week, Google’s product “Blogger” went down once again without notice. I felt bad for all of the bloggers using Blogger or Blogspot because I’ve been there. I believe that you need to evolve with your blog to keep interest and things more interesting.
I found my original designer/design on ebay. I can’t remember the designers name but I paid around $50 for it. As you can tell, I’ve always had a hula girl theme. But wow, what was I thinking with that bright yellow background?
In 2008, about a year after starting my blog, I wanted something different. Honestly, the bright yellow got a bit annoying to me. It was impossible to read. I contacted a blog designer, Judith Shakes Designs, for a custom design, as I was on blogger or blogspot at that time. Judith Shakes was amazing, and gave me a design entailing everything I wanted and dreamed of in a blog design. In November, Judith Shakes moved my design to WordPress with some tweaks in my design.
In April of 2011 (this year), I contacted my friend, Cynthia, aka Nap Warden about some issues that I was having with my blog on the backend. Cynthia suggested that I move my blog to a premium theme, Headway. Cynthia moved my blog to Headway, and gave me a slicker new polished look with the same branding and graphics from my prior design. I’m still re-working it and I have a ton of things to do, but I’m happy, like really happy with the change. Plus, I have like none of the issues that I had before.
I think that everyone occassionally needs revisions to their blogs, and they just don’t know where to go. I compiled a great list of blog designers that will move your blog from Blogger to WordPress, and/or also give you a sleek new design.
I am putting this list in alphabetical order to give no preference to any designer, but more options:
There are soo many more awesome blog designers, but I’m tired, and don’t have them all bookmarked. If you are a designer, please feel free to comment below. Share the wealth, ok your information with my people who may need a fresh start, new design, or change from that Blogger platform to WordPress.
