Blogger for Hire?

Ok, so I get that the title of this post could be a little misleading!! Although I would love to be able to build really cool blog designs for people and sell them that's not what this post is about. Several of my friends have decided to hire someone to design and build their blog for them. I think the time has come for me to do the same. There are, however, a few down-sides to this for me...
  1. I like change...often.
  2. Who would I hire?
  3. And the obvious one...price.

The positive is that I think they look so neat when they're done up right. I also hope that a new and more personalized blog would motivate me to be more regular in posting. Here is where I ask for your help. If you run across a super-cute blog please send me a link or the name of who built it. I would also love to hear what you guys have to say about how you think my blog should look (theme, etc.) that would fit our family!!

Love ya!! :)

Good luck! The cost and inability to change it frequently is why I haven't paid someone for a "individualized" blog layout yet. Let me know what you decide to go with.

I love mine but I also paid $75, so if you want to change often think of the price each time I change it will be $60

I paid a lady once to do mine, I think it was $75, but I got bored with it quick...I'm like you, I like change...so I enjoy changing mine every now and then...so it would be pointless for me to do it again! :-)

What I did for a friend of mine is design a very basic design (with several variances in color) that would allow her to change her background with the free backgrounds available out there. The elements might look kind of boring off hand, but paired with your choice of a background will still look cohesive. If you think you will change often, that might be the best choice.

Most places have you choose a digital scrapbook kit that you like and then use those elements to do your design-which makes things really easy and create a really customized look, but doesn't allow you to change often without having to pay for a whole new design to be created for you each time.

Hope that helps some!
