Hanging on blogs with Canadians

Its like riding in cars with boys, but better…

This month I am sitting in E-Ho’s sidebar over at Hope-Squared and got to take over her blog for a day this week. I answered some of her questions about my approach to blog design and together we’ve got a pretty terrific giveaway in the works. I’ve got a blog header design and a download of my handwriting font and Emily is offering a space for you in her sidebar next month. Pretty sure she’s going to make us all ‘blog famous’. Winking smile


Here is your chance to enter the giveaway! Head on over and get to know Emily a bit better and take a peek at my answers to her interview questions. And follow the steps below for even more chances to win.

I can't wait to meet the winner of the giveaway and get to know them better as I work with them to make their blog pretty and make it feel like “home.” And even if you don’t win, check my blog design page for more information about what packages I offer and shoot me an email if you’d like to work together.


What is your favorite feature of blog designs?
What thing do you look for first when you discover a new blog?
How do you feel about fonts?


  1. One of the occupational hazards of being a front end web developer is having an intolerance for design mistakes, I think. I don't mind someone having a stock theme on their blog, but the minute they start messing with it and don't have much in the way of design sensibilities, I have a hard time being tolerant. The overuse of handwriting fonts gets to me... A *HUGE* pet peeve is horizontal scrolling. I swear, so many bloggers who have figured out how to customize their stuff ruin themselves in my eyes by creating their blog layout to be optimally displayed on a large monitor.

  2. I definitely look for personality, taste, colors, and fonts in a design. Sometimes I don't even have to read very much - I already know I want to follow based off their design :) Is that terrible or what?

  3. I love the personal design elements that can be used to identify a blogger's style or blog content. Fonts, I like them, as long as people don't go crazy with them, then it becomes distracting.
