So, as most of you know, I am a Freelance Graphic Designer. I’ve been working with blogs and websites for just over a year to help them be just as beautiful as they always dreamed. So, have you been asking “Computer Screen? Who’s the fairest Blog of them all?” and let me guess, your blog isn’t…..
You want to fix that, don’t you? Thought so! I am going to give you the #1 secret to a great Blog Design… are you ready? Drum roll please!!!!!!
The number one secret to a great blog design is…. A great personality!
Yes, just like you have a great personality, your blog needs a great personality! Your blog is you on the internet, isn’t it? Of course it is! It wouldn’t be a great blog if it didn’t show you! Just like this blog, I’m kind of a Hipster Redneck, if that makes any sense (to some it wont lol). So, I went with the hipster look. I have mustaches; my picture is me in some hipster glasses etc., etc. It didn’t take me long to make this blog “hipster” and I wanted it that way because I don’t have too much time as a family gal, drummer, and Freelance Graphic Designer. If you want a “personality” to your blog here are a few simple steps to getting that personality on your blog!
#1 A Great Header
So, you are thinking “Oh great, her she goes. Making a big push for you to get a header from her!”! Well, that’s a yes and a no. Yes, I would love for you to get a header from me but, I also know that it is just as easy for you to do it yourself. It may turn out professional looking and it may not but, that’s not what we are going for here anyway. You are looking for a great personality!
You can make your own great header!
Here is how you do it!
Go to PicMonkey.com! They are a great website that will let you design, edit, and add text to photos all from the WWW! It won’t take you but about 10 minutes to have a great header!
When you get there, you’ll see 3 options. You want the “Design” option if you want a text header. If you want a photo header, use “Edit a Photo”.
