I'm currently using a template from btemplates.com but would really like to create something custom. One of my main goals is to create a blog design around a custom header which really depicts the theme of my blog.
I do have some "trial by fire" graphic design ability but the only software I have is MS Publisher.
I'm debating trying to create something myself or finding someone else to do it (but can't afford a lot.)
The other consideration is that I own my URL (http://www.beamingbalance.com) so maybe I just go the traditional web design route and link to Blogger. (Right now the URL redirects to blogspot.com)
Totally confused and wishing I was just a little more tech savvy!
I just had my blog revamped by an awesome gal named Crissy. She was so sweet to work with. You can see what she did on my blog at Woven by Words. Her site is Crissy's Blog Design. You will be blessed if you work with her.
