How do I get started?
Take a look at my questionnaire and think about what features or style you would like for your blog or website. Fill it out and I will get back to you with a quote and timeframe within 24 hours.
Please have a list of websites or I suggest setting up a Pinterest board with inspiration that you have about your site design. This will give me a better sense of your style. When I get answers like I like blue and yellow, it’s just too broad. I can do so much with that so I really need to get a better sense of your taste and preferences.
We will then be in constant contact until I have come up with your desired design.
Who do you recommend for hosting?
If you are starting out, I recommend Siteground, I was with them for my first year with no issues and they had really good customer service although there could be a long wait at times. I’m now with TechSurgeons and couldn’t be happier. They’re a smaller company with awesome customer service. They handled my transfer over from my previous host and I had no worries.
Will I lose my widgets?
I have not and do not plan a losing anybody’s widgets, however, I always advise clients to back-up their site prior to installation.
Your design is copyrighted, does this mean I can’t change the position of widgets on my blog?
Of course not, you are free to change the position of widgets and such on your blog, however, the header, fonts, colours and elements that I provide must stay intact with a link back to my site.
Where do you purchase photos for your designs?
I use Deposit Photos to look for characters, images, and background paper. You are free to browse the site and let me know if you find something that you would like to use in your design. It is best to either create a lightbox and then email it to me or you can send me the links to each image that you like. Depending on the size of your image that is needed it is $1/credit for each image.
Can I use my own pictures for the design?
Of course, please make sure that you send them to me at the beginning of the design process.
