Hi there! I’m April, of April Showers Design Studio and the *NEW* Blog Designer Network! Amanda has been kind enough to let me announce some AMAZING news here on Beautiful Blog Designs, and I hope you all do a chair dance and eat a cake pop in celebration.
For a few years I’ve been looking for a way to help bloggers and blog designers design their own sites, find a perfect blog designer, offer critiques, and more. Amanda started Beautiful Blog Designs, and it was really close to what I had in mind! So I’ve jumped at the chance to be an advertiser, and promote this site just as much as she promotes mine!
After offering online training sessions for blog design, I decided to start The Blog Designer Network – a place for blog designers to find amazing resources like workshops, tutorials, graphic resources, and a forum – and offer services like matching bloggers with designers, and blog critiques.
Once her and I chatted a bit, we talked about merging our two sites together. Considering our content is very similar, we thought it could be mutually beneficial. Since she is extremely busy with her kiddos and the amazing Everyday Elements, and I am so into helping other blog designers and just starting up the new site, it was the perfect idea!
So without further ado, we would like to announce that Beautiful Blog Designs will now be The Blog Designer Network!
All the wonderful content, posts, material, and resources you find here, will be transitioned over to The BDN on August 1st, 2011. Until then, take a look at all the fresh new content the new BDN has to offer, and Follow us using Google Friend Connect!
