Simple Little Home
The thing about doing blog design on the side while working full-time is that it takes me forever to find the extra time to actually *blog* about the designs I create. Which is exactly what happened with my latest. Simple Little Home’s makeover has been live for nearly a month now, and I’m just getting around to writing the post about it. My bad.
Anyhoo, Emily wanted to create a clean, organized space on her corner of the Internet, Simple Little Home, which is where I came in. Using some graphics that she selected from iStockphoto.com, I helped her to create a one-of-a-kind header with logo. We also worked together to get her blog’s navigation organized into a clear drop-down menu, so things are much, much easier to find. Everything is so … simple to locate now. Which is just perfect for her blog vibe → simple little website about a simple little home. Funny how that works out. And let’s not forget the social media icons I added into her header, which cleared up lots of space for other widgets on her sidebar. Not only that, but her Facebook page is now branded to match.
Oh, and we also added an author profile box at the top of her left sidebar, which makes it stand out from the rest of the page. Love it! I think every blogger needs to have an author profile box → it’s the growing trend, you know.
Thanks to Emily for allowing me to help her organize her space! It’s actually a form of therapy for my OCD everything-needs-its-own-place tendencies.
