{blog design | giveaway}

Today's the day.
My official one year blogiversary.
I had to start of this second year of blogging with a bang, 
so the best way to do that... a giveaway!
{There will be more to come throughout the month also.}

A few months back I decided my blog needed a bit of a facelift.
After researching around for quite a while, 
I decided to go with Melissa Rose Design.
Best. Blog decision. Yet.
She is amazing!!
I mean, just look at how stunning my blog is. :)

Today Melissa has a totally rad giveaway for you.
See for yourselves.

.........................................


Hey peeps! I'm Melissa...a 20 something graphic designer who is obsessed with all things creating (whether it be designing, baking or crafting). This past year, I opened my full service Graphic Design shop, Melissa Rose Design. And today, I'm taking over Amy's blog to share with you some thoughts about blog design and branding. 

If you're in a hurry, let me fill you in real quick on a few things I design on a daily basis: 


I also offer birth announcementsbirthday inviteswall art, and more. 

You may recognize my name from my personal blog over at 20 Going on 80, where I post Recipes, DIY Ideas, Free Printables, and more. Or I might sound familiar from designing one of the blog's below that you may have seen around blog-land ;)
After working on nearly 50 custom blog designs this past year, I've noticed the effects of what a cohesive design can say about a blog. Without a significant change in content, you can grow your blog by presenting yourself in an more professional way.


"Literally within the first twelve hours of having my new design live I jumped up about 20 followers. You're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but nobody ever said you can't judge a blog by its design." -Taylor at The Daily Tay


Whether it relates to your blog design or your business branding, the look of your brand is everything. Sure, your brother's best friends girlfriend could whip up a logo for you, but 99% of the time, it's going to look like your brother's best friends girlfriend made it. Simple truth. 


The good news is that you don't have to spend a fortune rebranding. You have options. In addition to custom blog design & branding , premade blog templates and premade Etsy Shop Sets are another option if you're looking to spice up your blog.

And...last but not least. A little giveaway. Want to win yourself one of my premade blog designs (valued at $50)? Enter below!
