When I started blogging, I have no idea how a template is done.. as in no idea at all.. and then I heard about designer’s charging up to $100. At first I thought it was exorbitantly priced and then I learned how to make a template and if you have no idea how.. you better shut up.. Template design is not all about images, it’s about putting your time, your effort into it. I tweaked all my blogs and so I now that creating a template is not as simple as blinking, yeah the codes can be recycled but time is the issue. It will take a day or more to customize a certain site, from header, to footer, to the color of the hover..
Have you tried tweaking your blog? Changing the color of the sidebar? How about trying to fit in the header? Or changing the font of your post title? Do you know that every element in your blog is being taken care of your blog designer? Let me make it elaborate for you.. to the point that you will learn how to design your own site.. First there’s the header. Creating one is really really easy. All you have to do is look for an image in the web that will fit the character or the theme of your client. It can take from 2 hour or more, depending on the image you client want. So if one will charge $5 per hour, a usual header will be $10. And then there’s the background, the color of the fonts, the size of the wrapper,the size of the padding, the codes, the FFFFFF, the 000000 and all the other values that need to be changed. This will take 4 to 6 hours.. so that’s $30. There’s favicon and if you have no idea what is it, then use your Google. Editing and creating this can take an hour or less.. so let’s just say it’s $5. And the footer which is a bit easy so let’s just say that it will take an hour, so that’s plus $5. And if you are not fan of a plain background, you can customize it, which will take another hour, so that’s $5 again. A signature can take a lot of time specially if it is animated. If you are not a designer, of course you have no idea how it is done, so once again, shut up. Let’s just say that a signature can take 3 hours, so that’s $15.
Oh wait, let’s do some math.. $75.. and we haven’t started with the installation yet.. the testing and last minute tweaking.. and we’re talking about just a $100!
Hmmm.. this is getting longer.. but anyways, if you are not cheap and pretending to know it all and have a less than mediocre header in your site and want to have a fabulous blog, I highly recommend WAHMaholic Blog Designs.
Oh guys.. I remember, designs and arts and beauty is to its own eyes.. some people may find a header blah but to the owner it may be the best thing.. so I take it back.. if you want to be satisfied with your blog designs… head on to WAHMaholic Blog Designs
