Blog (Design) Love: Success Stories!

Since releasing our Blog (Design) Love e-course, Elise and I have been amazed with some of the beautiful designs students of the course have created! Here are a few of our favorites and their thoughts about the e-course…

Here's what she says about the e-course, "The Blog (Design) Love course guided me through the huge job of rethinking the look and structure of my blog, making what could have been a daunting task fun and appealing. In particular, I love how the course helped me present my Learn To Sew tutorials and digital instructions for my sewing pattern in a clean, accessible and enticing style. I'm in love with the result!"Screen Shot 2013-02-18 at 11.08.48 AMLaura of The Band Wife used Blog (Design) Love to set up her brand new blog. We are so impressed with her design! Here's what she has to say, "As a new blogger, the Blog (Design) Love course was a lifesaver! The lessons helped me to thoughtfully conceptualize the look and feel I wanted for my blog and showed me how to implement those design choices. The course made the technical steps of blog design easy for beginners to understand, and saved me hours of searching the web for answers. I LOVED this course!"

People often ask if the course is still worth it if you already know your way around Photoshop. Our answer is always yes. Here's what Mallory says about the e-course, "A few months ago I wanted to make some changes to my blog.  I'm know the graphic side of design, but I needed help with html and layout.  In Blog (Design) Love Elise makes the html super simple for the changes I did, like adding a better nav bar.  Elsie clearly explains the steps for making a sitemap that lets readers easily explore.  I'm also excited to finish my photo archives with the course's help soon!"

Here's what Amanda has to say, "Blog (Design) Love is the best class I've taken online, it helped me establish a really solid design story for my blog. I had some vague ideas that I wanted to put in place, but the sessions in Blog (Design) Love gave me practical exercises to edit these ideas and then implement them. I particularly loved the Photoshop tips for designing specific blog elements, and having coding instructions right there for easy reference. I absolutely recommend the class to anyone planning to give their blog a makeover. It made a huge difference to my approach!"
