Ugly Blog

God my blog is so ugly and outdated.  No for real it really is super ugly and so unorganized that it makes me want to just vomit all over it, not that it takes much to make me want to vom these days.

It hasn't been updated in about oh, I don't know, 2 and a half years.  It really needs a makeover in the worst way.  I've gotten some recommendations on places who do a good job who are reasonably priced, but with the house closing coming up I just can't justify spending $100 bucks on an upgrade right now.  Maybe after the holidays, but definitely not now.  And if you even think about suggesting I do it myself I will laugh right at you because I am techno amish to the extreme.

I finally just recently updated my buttons which were ancient, but I want one of those cool things on the side that link to my facebook, pinterest, and twitter and I want a "like" and "tweet" and "pin" button at the bottom of each blog and I want it to look newer and cleaner and more streamlined.

God this blog is ugly.

But real quick question?  I've been toying with the idea for well over a year to switch to word press, but I'm hesitant to take the plunge.  Any suggestions/advice?

Don't feel bad I'm as clueless about these things as you are ... I mean anyone looking at my blog can tell.

One day when my blog is grown up it will also look cool.

As for advice for the switch ... sorry but if you do I'll ask you for advice :)

Girl, I am so with you. I'm sick of my blog design. And, I agree that yours def needs to be updated. :-) I think I wanna switch to wordpress, too, but I'm clueless! I'll keep ya posted if I figure anything out.

Idea... I think you should approach some smaller blog designers about redesigning your blog for free in return for an ad in your sidebar/shout-out on the blog. I bet you get enough traffic to justify that! Maybe they could even do a giveaway or something.

I switched from Blogger to WordPress, and caved and bought an ebook to show me step by step how to do it. Here's a link so you can find out more about it:

Good luck if you decide to make the switch!

Definitely WordPress! My husband is my techie guy so I can't help with logistics. I can tell you new templates are cheap (go to www.themeforest.com). I don't think your blog is ugly. I'm totally over my own blog too. I've bought a new template and am 85% ready to go with it. Just need some more time to finish up and then I'll have my new look. Good luck to you on getting a blog makeover.
