Whimsy. Why not?

It’s been a few days, I’ve been trying to be patient so as to let the final blog design be complete before I posted again.

Look around – we’re complete!

If any of you out there are looking to personalize your own blog and don’t know how to mess with all of that CSS code nonsense, I recommend looking on Etsy for a designer. I did just this, and found a blog makeover package for the bargain price of $62.00 as compared to several hundreds of dollars from larger companies. The bit I didn’t realize, was that WordPress charges a $30 a year customization fee to change the layout and look of your blog, but I prefer the layout to Blogger.. so, there you have it.

Can I first just say that I LOVE the new look? I’ve always been drawn to dandelions and turquoise colors. We incorporated both with a splash of color in between for a whimsy feel. After we installed the layout, I begin to feel a bit uneasy. The point of this blog was to create a professional platform to showcase my portfolio and to build an online presence/self brand. But the more I got to thinking about it, I thought: why not whimsical? Who says a little whimsy isn’t professional?

So, many compliments to Suzanne, an Etsy shop owner. I wouldn’t have done any of the beautiful designs featured here without her help. You can find her shop here.

So what are your thoughts? Can professional be a bit whimsical?

    I love it! And don’t worry about it looking professional. I never thought whimsical and professional could go together, but it certainly does!

    • Hi Wolviegrrl, so sorry this reply is so delayed! I was getting into a seriously wishy washy schedule and am getting back on track. Thanks for much for the comments, I went back and forth over the design for the longest time but I think it’s doing the job well. 🙂
