I used to be one of those people who was so comfortable with Facebook that I was completely opposed to Twitter. I finally gave in and signed up for Twitter just so I could keep in touch with blog friends. Almost instantly, I was hooked.
Twitter is great for marketing–your business, your blog, your cause, and yourself. Case in point? My recent blog makeover for Anni over at Lincoln Park on a Lark. It was through Twitter that Anni learned of my design services and I learned of her awesome blog.
Previously, Anni was using the Wu Wei theme on WordPress.com. She wanted to customize the look of her personal blog, but she didn’t want to waste a bunch of money.
That’s where I came in. I was really inspired by Anni’s photography skills and wanted to incorporate some fun, fresh colors to reflect the cheerful personality I picked up on when communicating with Anni.
To accomplish this, I purchased the CSS Upgrade for WordPress.com and tweaked the Bueno Theme. My favorite part? Probably the header. No, those aren’t stock images–those are all photos Anni took (isn’t she talented?)!
