I started Beautiful Blog Designs at the end of January, 2008 and it has really grown and changed. It has gone from a site simply listing where to get free templates to a place where bloggers, new and old, can find ways to beautify their blogs.
Along the way I have created a few series to help both bloggers and designers.
- Beautiful Blog Series - Each Monday I feature a blog which is particularly beautiful and reader friendly. See if your blog qualifies by reading this post.
- Free Template Series - Each Tuesday I feature a designer who provides many free templates.
- Custom Blog Designer Series - Each Thursday I feature a designer who creates custom blog designs.
- Tutorials Series (new) - Each Friday I will share a tutorial I recently discovered or used which I think is useful for everyday bloggers like myself.
- Design Giveaways - Each Sunday I will revise the Giveaways page with current giveaways, removing those which have expired.
Also, I have started to offer two services:
- Free tweaking of headers (from free templates or backgrounds) with a custom font. Those interested need to email me.
- Private blog critiques. As soon as I offered these, several bloggers ask for them and they have been very pleased (testimonials coming soon). And, they are FREE! I did a search and blog critiques can cost you up to $250! Read about my critiques at this post.
I hope you find BBD useful. If there is anything I can do to make it better, please let me know.
