You need a blog.
Take control of your content
Instagram is fantastic, but having your own blog, on your own domain, completely controlled by you can protect you from third-party platform changes and policies. We have been offering custom blog design packages since 2009. Through our blog design service, we will design a custom blog theme, work with you to tweak the design, and install it on your blog.
Choosing one of our custom blog or site designs presents a distinct edge over opting for a pre-made template or Showit theme. Our designs are meticulously tailored to reflect your brand's essence, creating a unique online presence that captures attention. Unlike templates, our approach ensures an authentic representation of your vision. Furthermore, our designs deliver equivalent quality to templates, but at a more budget-friendly rate. Paired with hosting options beginning at approximately $5 per month, this blend of affordability and tailored excellence defines our custom solutions, allowing you to reveal an exceptional online platform that mirrors your individual identity.
My professional journey as a custom blog designer began in 2009. I designed my own blog before transitioning into offering WordPress blog design services. Over time, my business has expanded significantly, allowing me the privilege to share my expertise and years of experience with valued clients.
Each blog design is a unique creation, meticulously tailored to harmonize with every facet of your brand. From color palettes to typography, I delve into every aspect, ensuring that the design encapsulates the essence of your identity.
I offer simple, elegant custom WordPress blog design, customized specifically to your personal brand and design preferences. A blog is a quick and easy way to establish your presence on the web. You retain complete control of your content, and it’s easy to earn passive income as well. Your blog design includes a custom header and footer, colorways, auxiliary graphics, and WordPress and theme installation and setup.

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.
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHARGE FOR EXCESSIVE REVISIONS. Our hourly rate is $100 per hour. Custom blogs and the necessary revisions take approximately 5-7 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.
NO PHONE CALLS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT ANY TIME!
When the blog design is complete and installed, we will be happy to provide an assortment of optional branding add-ons that you may select on our order form. 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.
Keep in mind that we are designers. Our site updates are limited to custom graphics created by Little Blue Deer. If you wish for other types of maintenance service, we will gladly include our preferred maintenance referrals. We will be happy to provide a zip file of your custom graphics free of charge.
