Fan Friday // Blog Design Tips

The First Fan Friday of Blogtober! I've got more & more design tips to share with you.  I looooove finding advice other bloggers have given because blogging is so different from person to person.  While I think there are some universal truths there are different taste preferences.  Hopefully these resources will inspire you!

 Personal Side Note:  We closed on the house yesterday! Yay! So now it's a long weekend of moving, building, & settling in.  Honestly I can't believe it.  In less than a year my life has changed so much.  I guess life does move fast & if you don't pay attention, you might miss it.

This great post on the small things you can do to improve your blog design by Lauren of the Perfect Pear.  It doesn't take much & you can build it over time!  She's got some lovely design elements going on there.  Looking cool!

10 More Blogging Layout Tips from Katrina on A Beautiful Mess.  Just some more things to keep in mind.

Even a simple background can make a blog cooler! Check these + more here.

  1. good tips! i tend to lean on highly photographic designs (my first blog design used imagery and was similar or the same as this layout :: http://www.kitkatherine.info ....which i also did so i think i was being lazy at first and just making the same blog design twice

  2. Congratulations on your closing, that's exciting! :)

  3. I'm always interested in blog design thingy. To me It is always a never-ending process to beautify my blog. Always a little bit of this needs modifying, a bit of that needs changing. But it is always fun to play around with making new look for my blog. A bit change can make it fresh :)
