Wow was I lucky!!!
Last Friday the fabulous and fabulously talented Ro Little of “Mommy Blog Designs” http://www.mommyblogdesigns.com/ was offering a “Friday Blog Giveaway”! Being a big fan of Ro’s and seeing some of my blogger friends get wonderful makeovers by her I was happy for a chance to win!
As I left my comment on her blog, I thought good, happy thoughts and then went on my merry way.
Well, with the excitement of hurricane Irene here in New York and loosing our power for three days I really hadn’t given the great giveaway much thought. So imagine my surprise when I was finally able to go on my computer and found a very happy message from Ro telling me that I WON!!!
Look at my gorgeous web site!! My dishwasher has been so happy it hasn’t acted out once all week!!!!! I’m thrilled!!
Being very curious, I wanted to learn a little bit more about this great lady, who I first met a few months ago on voiceBoks http://www.voiceboks.com/ when she had her first website “Mommy MindSpa” http://www.mommymindspa.com/
Some might say it’s not fair that Ro has been able to come up with not one, but two great ideas to make moms feel great!MommyMindSpa is Ro’s site that helps moms take just a little time out of our day to remember ourselves! And now with her new site, Mommy Blog Designs, Ro is helping our blogs look great as well.
On Mommy Blog Designs Ro showcases her Pretty Pre-Made Designs (they are really great) as well as giving some examples of the beautiful work she has done for others. Her slogan, Every mom deserves a pretty blog sums up her philosophy perfectly.
It is in this vein of helping moms that Ro has also been working with Lexie Lane the founder of voiceBoks. This month Ro has been the first teacher in voiceBoks Blogger Ed series of events to help moms learn about the technical aspects of blogging.
Her two week series Crackin’ the Blogger Code has been wonderful. She has answered some of our most pressing questions from how to make your blogger site look more like a wordpress site to how install specialty tabs. She makes it so sound so easy that even I have thought of attempting a trick or two.
To make her work accessible Ro offers a few price points, starting with her Pretty Pre-made Designs for 39.00 and moving all the way up the ladder to the Classy Custom Design Total Site Make-Over.
She also offers an Al-a-Carte Menu for those who are looking for something specific such as a header or button. Her web site does an excellent and clear job of spelling out all that is included in each package and service.
I found myself very curious about how this happily married mom of three came up with these great ideas.
Ro is quick to admit she is not a professionally trained web designer. She describes herself as a cookie baking, soccer mom, who decided to start having some fun blogging.
Once she was hooked with her Mommy MindSpa site she started learning how to crack the codes and found that she could do anything she wanted on her own site. The progression to start to offer her services for a fee was natural.
If you are looking to pretty up your site go visit her at Mommy Blog Designs!! If you are looking for a minute to yourself and some great ideas, do yourself a favor and head over to Ro’s wonderful Mommy Mindspa! You will not be disappointed!!
*Just a note: The giveaway I won on Ro’s site had no strings attached. Ro did not require or even ask me to do a profile on her. I just really love her two sites and think she is a really great lady! Many thanks to her!! I love my new design!!
