Blog Facelift With Pretty Darn Cute Design

blog pic

I’m one of those blog stalkers. I love to scroll through blogs on a Saturday morning with a warm cup of coffee in hand. I come across blogs that have little pieces of design elements I want in my blog all of the time. I always tell myself that I will re-design my blog and get a new theme, but I get too busy and put it on the back burner. Well I finally am updating my theme after all this time thinking about it! It’s currently a work in progress so please don’t mind the dust. I hope to have it exactly the way I want it in a few days so do check back for updates!

I’m using a theme from Pretty Darn Cute Design. She has the best WordPress themes! They are so girly and gorgeous. I highly suggest checking them out. She even helps with installation if needed. For those of you who have a bit of WordPress knowledge you can easily follow her set-up instructions to install the theme yourself. It’s the tweaking and rearranging that is the tricky part! I’m thinking I need to re-design my logo as well, but I need to find a graphic designer with better skills than my own first!

Have you updated your blog design lately? What theme did you use? Did you hire a graphic designer to re-design your logo as well? Leave your ideas and thoughts in the comments. I will take all of the help I can get!

    Love this post, thanks for sharing! I am still on blogger, and having it redesigned. I am planning to switch to wordpress, but not just yet. STill learning all the techy stuff before I do, I heard its harder to navigate. Have a great weekend!

      Really? I started with WordPress so I have no idea! I think it’s hard to navigate either one probably until you get the hang of it! Thanks for stopping by!

    Fun! I just did a minor redesign by changing up my logo and color theme and I love it! New looks can be so motivating when it comes to blogging!

    I’m excited to one day switch over to WordPress!

    Her themes are so cute! I look forward to seeing what you come up. I designed my theme, logo, etc all myself because I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted from anyone else ha!

    After a 5 year blogger hiatus, I too was once on WordPress, loved it, the only bummer from time to time was the host, when they went down grrrrr….. Other than that the designing possibilities are endless. I’m back on blogger, with my own url. Under construction as well. We are mostly finished with design, just a few more tweaks here and there, turn on some features and we are good to go. Chose blogger to reintroduce myself to the tech side of blogging, kind like dipping your toes in the pool.

    Once I’m comfortable again then I’ll migrate *gasp* over to WordPress. My design has wholly been created by my dearest friend and tinker extraordinaire! The girl can work magic like no ones business. She created my perfect zen place, look feel. I cried…. Yes, I actually cried.

    New crossroads in life, and reemerging an emptynester, newly disabled and letting my creative wings fly unabashedly once again. I’m very excited.

    You have a beautiful clean gorgeous layout here. Love that as much for any mobile device as for computer. There are some stunning blog looks, get on mobile and it’s a nightmare to fully enjoy. Kinda like lost in mobile translation….ya know? Kudos on the remodel. If you are happy, this place pulls you to her, to do all you want to do, then I say BRAVA!

    Enjoy the new look and feel. Truly will look forward to your permanent unveiling, after you’ve dusted and cleaned up, construction can leave such a mess behind 😉
