Hey friend! Let’s chat about how I can help you with your very own blog makeover!
Are you ready for a change?
I can help! I’ve been working in the blogging industry for 6+ years and know what it’s like to hate the way your blog looks. It shouldn’t be that way! You should LOVE opening up your blog, writing your posts and interacting with your readers.
I specialize in blog “makeovers” or revamping existing blogs by styling high quality StudioPress themes to make your blog look more visually appealing AND function better. So you can truly LOVE blogging.
Of course I can also help you start a blog from scratch, set up your e-mail list, help with blog consulting and so much more!

Blog Makeover Testimonials:
"I had seen Amanda's work on other blogs and loved it.. I also found it great that I was working with an actual blogger - when I first had my blog designed years ago I worked with someone who didn't blog and wasn't able to help me troubleshoot issues like ads like Amanda was!
I feel like [Amanda] really [fills] a hole in the blog design market. I know that I wasn't able to spend thousands of dollars, but I still wanted quality work which I found..I could tell that she put a lot of thought into creating a design that would work for me and my blog."
"I love that Amanda fills an important niche in the blog design community. When I was searching for someone to redesign my site, I knew that the framework for the blog was already there - I just wanted a better look and style. I didn't want to pay a website designer thousands of dollars, but I also didn't feel like spending time trying to figure out how to install a new theme, update my social buttons, etc myself. Amanda's services were perfect because they were at the right price point and I got exactly what I needed."
"Amanda is a great person to work with and has an eye for design. Her pricing is fair for the work and she is a great resource for blog questions. She sent me the color scheme and several designs to choose from and made tweaks as needed. She also gave me general suggestions for making my blog look better, like adding page breaks and moving around some of my widgets. She is a pleasure to work with and very knowledgeable about web design. She is professional and efficient at what she does. She responded promptly to my emails and answered my questions. Amanda is the bomb. :-)" Full review on Mary's blog here. //
"Amanda went above and beyond, and her prices are beyond reasonable for what she is providing. Not only does she make a great product that you will be so excited to show off and brag about, but it's an open and collaborative process where she really takes your needs and desires and helps them grow. It is clear that she really wants the best for her clients, which was something that really stood out to me throughout our correspondence.
She has a comfortable yet professional tone and nature to her that helped make the blog makeover and transition much less stressful from a client perspective (when you worry about all the bad things that can happen). She has years of experience with wordpress and blogging and I had no doubts that my site would turn out perfectly in the end, which it did. You have to trust Amanda and let her do her thing!"
"I LOVED working with Amanda. She was so professional through the whole process and was able to recommend things I didn't know I needed but now make things 500 times easier for me. She suggested plug-ins and services that add value to my website and save me time (and money - because time is money 😉 ).
I couldn't be more pleased with the work she completed for me. She was also very patient with me and some of the problems I was having on my end! Together we made it work (but it was mostly her!). She's so knowledgeable and genuine."
"Amanda was so awesome to work with. Communicating exclusively through email can be tricky, but she was great at laying out the whole timeline and she was so thorough with explaining what was going to happen! She really cares about her clients happiness, and that shows in everything she does." Full review on her blog here.
"Amanda is fantastic to work with! [She] was great at communicating exactly what we were going to be doing with my website makeover, getting with me when I had any questions or needed clarification, and she understood my wants and needs for my site. Amanda has excellent pricing for her services and my blog looks 10 times better than it did before. Amanda, you are the bomb! Thank you so much for all your help!"

"Amanda reached out to me almost immediately to see what I was going for, sent over tons of logo ideas and constantly updated them based on my feedback. Seriously, she was on it – multiple responses and emails a day! I didn’t even find out about her until the end of last week and it’s already finished! I still look at my blog all the time just because I think it’s so pretty. :)" Full makeover story on ALB here. // Full review on her blog here.
"WOW. Seriously wow. I can't say enough positive things about how much I love this! You did an amazing job! I love the categories on the menu that you add[ed]..I just can't thank you enough, this is beautiful and everything I wanted my blog to be! I just can't thank you enough, this is beautiful and everything I wanted my blog to be!" Full makeover story on ALB here. // Full review on her blog here.
"Amanda was happy to keep making changes to my site until I was totally happy with how it looked. She knows her design stuff! She was also so kind and easy to work and responded to all of my emails promptly. I’d highly recommend her services!"
"Amanda was a joy to work with from start to finish. She was quick to understand exactly how I envisioned my dream blog site and brought it to life before my eyes. I have had a food blog for a few years now and never took the next step in upgrading my site because I had no idea how to do so. Amanda's talents were a true gift! She took all the stress out of styling and customizing my blog. She was patient, vibrant, and detail-oriented when working with me.
I always looked forward to receiving her emails because not only would she have flawlessly taken care of what I asked for, but she also provided me with incredibly valuable advice and tips for taking my blog to the next level. I highly recommend allowing Amanda to work her magic. You will not be disappointed! "

Mail Chimp Set Up + Style
Do you have an e-mail list? You should! An e-mail list is a great way to connect with your readers in a more personal way, send out important messages or offers, or just to let readers know you have a new post for them to check out.
- Set up Mail Chimp account (free account or paid account* starting at $10 per month that includes an autoresponder)

You can use these e-mails to introduce yourself, tell readers why your blog is so special, introduce them to the site, send exclusive tips/sales and overall turn the subscriber into a true fan. I obviously recommend this, but you can always start out with the free site and move onto the paid version when you are ready.

Sumo.me is a powerful plugin that includes share buttons + e-mail opt-ins.
