Today's post has been long overdue, in fact it was just before Christmas last year when I had a little revamp over here on A Little Boat Sailing and opted to find a sleek, professional looking blogger design that wouldn't cost me a small fortune.
Many of you by now will have heard of Pipdig, a professional blog designer whose designs are modern, sleek and professional, all of which were things that I was looking for; in a nut shell they are pretty perfect. It has been a while now since I picked my design and had it installed for me where to this day I haven't had any real urge to change anything because quite simply I have loved it so much.
Pipdig offers a variety of pre-made templates for both Blogger and WordPress which are affordable and easy to install. If however like me you're a little bit intimidated by the prospect of installing it yourself then Pipdig is on hand to help you with that too! There's also the option to have a blog design custom made if that tickles your fancy which would allow you to have complete control over a design that would be unique to your blog.
Many of you who have been long time readers on here will have noticed that there has been a little bit of a change in colour scheme overnight. This had been something that I had wanted to do for around a month now in order to add my own spin to the overall appearance because seeing as I had picked out a pre-made template, I chose London Calling, this meant that more than one person could ultimately have the same one. This isn't something I mind too much because like with all of the templates from Pipdig they are customisable. Despite this I didn't want to actually loose the physical design of this template because it works so well for me, it's simple, clean and easy to move around therefore slightly changing the colour scheme and designing my own header like in the good old days seemed like the perfect way to achieve what I wanted.
For a very long time thinking about my past blog design history I have stuck to somewhat of a blue and purple theme. Recently however I found my tastes veering very much towards monochrome which whilst it is still something that I absolutely love I did feel as though my blog felt a little too formal. Whilst I do remain professional in terms of communication and general day to day ramblings on here I did feel as though my blog didn't represent me as well as it could. Therefore after a few hours and around six different blog header designs later I finally decided to make a few tweaks here and there in order to give A Little Boat Sailing a little spring clean.
I really wanted to share my blog design and the few tweaks that I have made with you because my blog is a huge part of my day to day life yet more importantly I wanted to highlight the talent and hard work of Pipdig. From the get go I felt extremely confident in Pipdig after reading so much positive feedback from others; it was such a blessing to work with somebody who knew what they were doing and could help me achieve what I wanted. For a lot of bloggers it's not just the design that is important it is having the confidence to let someone take control on that front because if I'm honest I would not even know where to start when it comes to designing a blogger template; a blog header is as far as it goes for me!
Overall my experience with Pigdig has always been absolutely wonderful! From swift responses, awesome designs, friendly helpful advice and a professional manner I have always been left feeling confident and delighted with the results. If you're in the market for a new blog design or know somebody that is then I simply could not recommend Pipdig any more even if I tried.
For the record this was not a sponsored post or anything like that, in fact I simply wanted to acknowledge the hard work of Pipdig because, like all good work it should be recognised.
