Today is usually the day I post a review, but I want to do a little bit of discussion. So, recently I have been tweaking with our design here at Novel Ink and I really love the final wrap-up of it. It took me awhile to get there as I am a perfectionist and nothing was coming around the way I wanted to, but it finally did. Not only that, but hearing that Christy loved it to was the cherry on top. I mean she had to or I would start all over again 😛
The other day, Genesis from Latte Nights Reviews came to me asking to help her along her new design process. She wanted to take a hack at the Tweak Me theme and to see where it would take her. After some time of helping her I just suggested that I could do it for her. She give me her ideas and then I’ll try and give her the best design I can. I was so pleased with what came about with Gen’s design.
I don’t know any CSS and this whole idea is new to me. I kind of just go with the flow and make whatever for whomever. So, the thing that I was thinking was to start doing this as a service and that’s where you guys come in. Would any of you have me do this for you?
I see around the blogosphere that some people charge like $100 dollars for a new blog design, which I understand because it does come with a lot and they do the whole CSS thing. But, I was thinking of doing a blog design (using the Tweak Me themes for now because that’s what I’m used to at the moment) where I would include basically a whole design (graphics, header, signatures, etc. – we would have to talk details when we got to the point). And for everything to be done within a timely manner…I would charge like $15-20 dollars or you guys could give me some books of a wish-list I would make up.
Please go to Gen’s site, Latte Nights Reviews, to check out the new design and you guys can decide off that and our design here if me trying to do this would be worth it. Please, please be honest because I’m not sure if people would be willing without the whole CSS deal.
So, leave your opinions below…let me know of any ideas, pros, cons…whatever. Leave it all because I’m going a little insane not knowing what to do. Designing is something I wish I would’ve went to school for and is definitely a love of mine. It wouldn’t be a job, it’s something I love.
