Hi, I am using free templates on my blog for now but I want to have a button made for my blog and I was wondering if anyone can recommend someone who makes those sort of thing, also I need this to be inexpensive. I am looking to purchase a template in the future but I saw someone who at the very least wanted $50.00 and she didn't have a button in their cheapest price. I was hoping you guys would know of someone good who didn't charge a crazy amount.
There are tons of sites out there with free templates and tips to easily modify them.
I recommend that you save the money and spend the time learning a little about it. It will go a long way, I assure you! Blogger Buster is one of my favorite sites. Final Sense is where I got the template for my main blog and they have a great variety too.
Then, with the money you save on the template, you can pay for a button. :) As for recommendations for a button, I had my hubby do mine. If you already have a general idea of what you're looking for and could provide a rough sketch, he said he could do one for $10-$15. But he recommends that you focus on your theme with the new template then worry about a button that matches. PM if you want to chat.
Like Nicole said, there are tons of sites out there not only with free templates but also how to's. If you do some looking you can learn how to change your blog however you want without paying anyone for the work!
If you need some help with making your own button, let me know. I would be more than happy to help you out and save you that $50!
What about help in a WordPress theme? My brother has been working on mine but Wordpress part is what is new to him. He does HTML and has built and designed many web pages (one of his side gigs and he has a LOT of work) But he still isn't done w/ my WordPress theme to the point that I am about to break down and use a free one... I don't want to do if I can help it. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am really trying to wait for him to be done but in the meantime I am writing posts in Notepad and just saving them... Not doing me much good. I have had my Blog domain and host since Jan 12... Anyone?

Can you make a blog using Blogger. I prefer to stay with them I love that they are free! I am looking for a simple 3 column with mild colors. I don't want my blog to scream at my in dark colors. Can you make a matching header and button? I like a cartoon country look without it being fake and corny looking. I just wrote my 1st product review and I want to do more, I don't want people turned off by a site that looks like it's for a 12 year old. Does that even make sense?
Glad I could help. Everything on my blog, I did myself. Like you said, it is not perfect or beautiful but it saves a lot of money. I figure someday down the road when I am making a little money at this, I can upgrade and pay someone to do it for me.
