Do you feel like it’s time to start sprucing up your blog? If you aren’t a pro at editing, HTML, or Photoshop, but don’t have loads of money to spend, these design blogs will be for you:
Design It Love It
Carolynn is the blogger behind this wonderful design blog, Design It Love It. She has really creative ideas, and writes really informative posts about the inspiration behind her designs. If you are wanting to spruce up your blog with buttons and pictures, or looking for backgrounds, social, or sidebar icons, you will not be disappointed. As well as really great free stuff, there are also great beginners design tutorials, which are a really great way to dip your toes in to photo editing.
If the Antiques Roadshow could blog and design websites, this would be what it would look like! Shabby Blog has beautiful vintage photo frames, tag sets, post dividers, and custom designs (coming soon). These accessories will draw attention to your new posts!
We love Pugly Pixel here at the Bloggers’ Lounge. If you don’t like too much fuss, but still want to accent your blog with playful, geometric, and on-trend designs, this is for you. There are freebies for you to try, and if you really love it, you could go the whole hog and download the ‘Blog Bling Kit’ ($25), or try out one of the online tutorials. Whatever you choose, you’ll be inspired by the pared down and tongue-in-cheek aesthetic of this blog.
