Ever since Madeline Mele of The Shabby Vanity did my blog design at the end of August, I’ve wanted to feature her and her business here at Moana Saves. Working with Madeline on the blog design was great. She is efficient and professional, listening to me every step of the way yet also adding her expertise when I dawdled. I was almost sad to see the process end! Further, Madeline has been great about answering my design questions or making adjustments after the original work she did. Here are some recent designs she’s done. Hard to miss mine and the other blogs are fabulous, too!
I interviewed Madeline recently for the readers of Moana Saves:
How did you get into creating blogs? What do you like most about designing?
What design tip can you give to bloggers?
Make your blog how you want it to be! There are so many great tutorials out there that can teach you how to design your own blog. Having a great look on your blog not only increases traffic flow- but when your design looks professional, your content begins to improve too! Designing it yourself can be time consuming and require extra computer programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, and other third-party resources. However, most of the time, basic things like adding a post divider, or uploading a background can be done pretty easily if you are following a good tutorial. When things get complicated because you want a design that no one else has, you don’t have the resources to follow a tutorial, or you just don’t have the time- that’s when you contact a blog designer to do it for you!
As a mom and a business owner, I know you’re busy and you work hard. When you get some time for yourself, how do you like to pamper yourself?
Just like everyone else that has multiple responsibilites, I feel like life is a juggling act. In order to make the most of my time for myself- I do what I enjoy. Whether that day it’s make a batch of cookies, take a bubble bath, or update our family blog- I just make the most of it!
