Please be aware that to run a blog on (self-hosted WordPress), you will need to purchase a domain name and hosting prior to us beginning work on your blog.  The following providers offer One Click WordPress Installation and are recommended by Little Blue Deer:  | (note:  please do not use Bluehost or Godaddy’s Managed WordPress service, it is 3rd party and not recommended by Little Blue Deer).  We do recommend that your purchase site lock and site backup add-ons if available.

You can expect a blog draft by the end of your assigned week, and have your blog installed thereafter, dependent upon revisions.  These times are approximate; we do not guarantee them, but your blog is as important to us as it is to you, and we try to work as quickly as we can.
5.  A D D I T I O N A L  B R A N D I N G
When the blog design is complete and installed, we will be happy to provide a matching Facebook page header and/or Twitter background and profile pic for $25 each.  We do reserve the right to charge a progress payment if your blog takes longer than 1 to 2 months  to complete.  This payment will only be requested if the delay is on your end, which we completely understand, you’ve got a lot going on!  This is not in addition to the design fee, it will just be a fraction of your final payment, generally 1/4.
6.  D E S I G N  R E V I S I O N S
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHARGE FOR EXCESSIVE REVISIONS.  Our hourly rate is $85 per hour.  Custom blogs and the necessary revisions take approximately 4-12 hours to complete.  If you wish for revisions beyond the allotted amount of time you will be charged at an hourly rate (which will be pro-rated).   We require a 50% deposit to start work on your blog.  This deposit is non-refundable, it takes lots of time to create the initial design proofs, hence the deposit.  The remaining balance must be paid after the blog is installed.  Outstanding balances after 30 days will be referred to attorney and professional collection action will be taken.
