Web design skills- NOT!

I'll admit that I don't have the most exciting looking blog, but I do what I can to spruce it up when I can figure out how. I got rid of the Goodreads bookshelf that was there before (which didn't really work as I'd hoped), and replaced it with a book montage of my 4 and 5 star rated books from Goodreads.

Now you can see all the books that I think are definitely worth reading, with their pretty covers and all! I got the idea from Amanda Hocking's blog.

If you have a blog, what are your favorite design elements that you've added? How did you find them (or how to add them)?


  1. If you want to change your blog template, you can go to They have great designs to choose from, and uploading it is really easy. That's where I got mine from.

    I love your book cover display! I noticed Twilight's cover really stands out.

  2. I actually left my site in favor of a Wordpress blog through my website. I also left Weebly in favor of my own domain. It was a pain in the butt to set up, but I'm happier with the sties now because they're all linked and have a similar look (couldn't get the blog to look exactly like the main site, but not worth fighting right now, when I don't have web design in my repertoire).

    Of the widgets/elements, my header is my favorite, followed closely by my Feed the Fishies thing--but I couldn't have that one with Wordpress.

  3. I love the book montage. Quite colorful too :) I have to laugh when I see all those Nora Roberts books. I read part of one of her books a few years ago. It frightened me so badly that I threw it in the trash and swore I would never read another one of her books. And I haven't :) Sissy, huh?

  4. Web Hosting Design has cheap web hosting excellent customer service and very reasonable rates. I have never had any issues with them, and plan on keeping them as my web host for a very long time. My sales rep was great call at (800) 491-WEB1

  5. Web designing is one of the best and great professional skill of the world and every years rapidly develop in different ways because website that main purpose to develop own life and improve own skill.
