I'm usually pretty savy with computer stuff. But for some reason I can't figure out how to spruce up my blog layout? I know what I want, but cant figure out how to do it. Too frustrated and impatient to REALLY give it a try. My question is... did you bloggers design your own blog layout or use somebody else? Who do you recommend?

I am starting a new children's book review blog and I had chelsea at Aqua Poppy Designs put together a header, background, and banner for me. It was inexpensive and I'm thrilled with it. I haven't posted there yet, but you can check it out and link to her at my blog.

Hope that helps!
thank you. I'll check that out!
I am using a designer... she has completed my blog buttons for me but not my website make-over. I am VERY happy with the price and work so far. If you use Diana, please be sure to tell her Kelli sent you!

Custom Blog Designs
I designed my own blog. It is a pretty easy process, but I got so anal about it, it took me a while longer than expected. If you do end up going the DIY route, there are a bunch of how-to blogs out there. I can give you a few recommendations if you want!
Dear Mommy-momo,

I've "designed" my blog myself, without any help. I don't have any special skills, just self-taught.

I wouldn't want to give you any advise on what to do and how. I'd like to share my humble opinion only.

Do whatever you like with your blog. There are a lot of people who design a blog for you at your request, and the prices are very, very reasonable (won't break any budget!)

A lot of people will help you with buttons and layout, just use your search on this site or Google them (but here, on MomsBlogger site, there are a lot of talented women who offer such services!)

The most attractive thing for me in any blog is CONTENT! If the content is great, I'll keep visiting you again and again!

Thank you for allowing me to share what I think.

HI, I designed my own blog and I had fun doing it! It's an ongoing process and I try to add features whenever I find something interesting or an idea pops in my head. See my blog at Raising Daniel
I designed my own - while I was nesting, actually. A few days before I was induced, I sat down and tore apart wordpress and created this (which I know I need to update way more often):
I used a free template and designed it myself (tweaks and all).. still not 100% satisfied with it..esp the header but will work on it.

I designed my own with a template from They have lots to choose from, and it's free...

you can take a peek at my blog:

Hope this helps!
I just had my blog redone by a great designer and it was really inexpensive. I think she even has templates.
I used Judith Shakes Design and you can google it to find her. (her name is Courtney

You can check out my redesign at

Hope that helps

Hi girl! I like your layout..what do you want to change about it? Do you mean background, or header or change up the columns, or create wider/thinner sidebars?? If you can describe what you are aiming for, likely we all can help you get there??

I just go with whatever template was available. I also did my website this way. I like to be creative, but when I blog, it's more what I write that I want to stand out.
