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 use WordPress and customized a theme by Brian Gardner. It's a pretty affordable solution to go this route. You can usually find a WordPress programmer who can customize for you if you are not comfortable with html and coding. Jesse Petersen is who I use when I run into snags! :)
I had my blog designed my a fabulous designer! She offers reasonable prices, is so sweet to work with, and will tweak, tweak and retweak your site until you are happy with it. Check her out and tell her that I sent you! http://reflectingthedesigner.com/
I was using leeloublogs, then she brought on another blog designer so I go from this other lady and designers she has listed on her blog. Right now I am using a 2010 New Year blog. I enjoy changing up my blog template on a regular basis.
They're free, well designed and fully customizable with little to no knowledge of html or css. I can do it myself but I rarely find the time for sitting down to do it! So these versatile templates have been a real lifesaver.
I designed mine myself. It;s very simple at the moment but I've had blogs with allot of fancy stuff in the past and just needed a break from that. There's allot of great tutorials on the web to help you.
