For some time now (as in, over a year), I have been wanting to overhaul my blog. There are several reasons why.
- For one, I would like to move to my own domain rather than having to include ".blogspot" in my URL.
- Secondly, I want to divide my blog posts into several tabs that are each dedicated to their own topic, to make it easier to go back and read old posts on certain subjects (i.e. recipes, homeschooling, etc.). Along with this, I want to come up with a better way to catalog, archive, and access old posts.
- Also, a more personal design/header than the generic Blogger layout would be nice.
- Lastly, giving my blog a facelift is like moving all the furniture around in my house - it's just something I want to do to change things up.
So, in my head, I know exactly what I want. There are only two problems between me and the blog of my dreams.
Problem #1 - I don't know the first thing about web design.
Problem #2 - Every person I have tried to hire in the past initially expressed great interest, understood exactly what I wanted, and then dropped off the face of the earth. Since they were all very capable web designers, I have concluded that they don't like the content on my blog. Please wait while I go cry for a while. (right...)
Anyhow, I know that I have many talented and capable readers. Yes, I know there are also a lot of dim-whit lurkers who hate me, my husband, my kids, and probably everyone I ever come into contact with. BUT I know that I have a lot of readers who enjoy my blog, so I thought that maybe one of them would be able and interested in helping me with this project. I think it would be for the general betterment of the blogosphere!! Maybe I'll even get invited to speak at BlogHer or the Today Show! Maybe a big Fortune 500 company will beg me to put their ad on my website! Oh, I forgot, they don't like people like me.
If you are interested, or can point me in the right direction of who might be, please leave me a comment with your email address. Your comment will not be published.
