So it’s been almost eight weeks since my new blog design went up, and I still absolutely love it. Every time I see it, I have to smile. Every. Single. Time.
I mean, just look at it! Pretty colors, sweet pictures, and bubbles…what more could you want? It’s exactly how I feel when I read a good YA romance novel, and how I want my readers to feel when they read mine (ya know, someday.)
Linda Tieu of Calimera Web created this custom design, and I don’t think anyone could have done a better job capturing my tone. When we started the process, I wasn’t sure what I wanted, but Linda knew the questions to ask to get the information she needed. I sent her my rambling answers, sure the whole exercise was going to be a waste of time. After all, if I didn’t know what I wanted, how could I possibly communicate it to someone else?
My jaw dropped when I saw the first mockups Linda sent me. A few small revisions later, I had a blog design that truly felt like ME. I hadn’t told Linda that purple was my favorite color because I didn’t want narrow the options of what she might create, so it felt like magic when that was one of the colors she’d picked from the very beginning.
It didn’t even matter that Linda lived on the other side of the world because everything was done via e-mail. The entire process was simple and painless, only requiring a bit of thinking on my part. Although I was primarily interested in her blog design services, Linda is very knowledgeable about WordPress and took the time to answer some questions I had.
I absolutely recommend Calimera Web for anyone looking to build a WordPress blog or just redesign their existing blog. Linda is professional, easy to work with, and responds quickly. She can help you get set up, even if you’ve never used WordPress before.
