A New Look for Blogger & Design List is OPEN

How do you like the new look?  I’m in love with the Blogger templates (yep-it’s Blogger, not Word Press) from Georgia Lou Studios.  I love the clean look, body layout, and slider.  I do miss my multicolor arrows, turquoise border, and green banner, though.  So, why switch?

It’s the snappy slider and mobile view that really sold me.  Wordpress without a doubt crushes regular Blogger mobile view.  Regular Blogger mobile view is pretty bleh.  It doesn’t look great and barely works.  You can turn it off, but then you’re not mobile friendly.  And people use their phones just a little bit for Internet browsing.

Isn’t this mobile view a thing of beauty?  Here’s a peek at the mobile view if you’re on a computer:

I’ve already installed it for a few friends that were nice enough to let me use them for guinea pigs.  Nicole from Teaching with Style has a beautiful new design.

You can also see a demo site here:

I’ve opened my design list at A Bird in Hand Designs for January and February designs.  Here’s what’s new:

•New Blogger custom design spots (traditional Blogger template or Georgia Lou Studios templates)

•Georgia Lou Updates: Have a design from A Bird in Hand Designs and want to switch over to a new Georgia Lou Studios template?  I will create a new streamlined header based on your current design and switch your existing graphics over.

•Wordpress Designs: I am not migrating blogs right now.  I'm going to wait until summertime to offer that.  It’s pretty time consuming and not something I can fit in at night between dinner, dance class taxi service, and the usual parenting shenanigans.  So for now, I am working with bloggers who are currently on WordPress and want to update their theme OR want to set up a new Wordpress blog and migrate it themselves or have someone else do it.

This is my first time to try a big listing of dates like this, so hopefully it goes well!  Cross your fingers for me! {And please be gentle if it doesn’t.}
