GIVEAWAY: Win a WordPress Theme from Restored 316
I started blogging on the blogger platform back in 2007, taught myself a little code and photoshop, and opened up my first small business as a blog designer. As a self-taught designer, I knew enough to make blogger work and always planned on learning WordPress, but made a career change after launching The Everygirl and never got around to it. About a year ago, I made the switch from blogger to Squarespace and a few months ago (thanks to my friend Kelly), migrated everything over to WordPress.
At first, I bought a theme I was pretty happy with, installed it myself, and made a few tweaks to the code and design. Ultimately, it wasn’t what I was looking for. So I bought another one and my site looked pretty good but it still wasn’t right. And then I came across Restored 316, a shop I remember seeing back in the day when there were very few blog designers around. Lauren’s WordPress themes are beautiful, budget-friendly, and the best part is that she offers affordable options to help customize the templates for you.
I know a little code, but after installing my site, realized the changes I wanted to make were beyond what I know how to do on my own. So Lauren and I worked together to make the Dazzling theme everything I envisioned it to be. It has to be said–I was the most annoying client ever. Having experience in Photoshop, I took it upon myself to screen shot my site and then edit it to show her exactly what I wanted it to look like. And she did not disappoint.
Let’s talk about why it’s so great. First, there’s the sleek navigation (where my photography and home tours are easy to find!) and slider. Scroll down, and you’ll see some of my favorite items that you can now easily shop right from my home page. One of my favorite features is the ability to see products below any posts with a rewardStyle slider in them.
Lauren is giving one of you the Restored 316 WordPress theme of your choice ($75 value), the sparkle and shine package ($300 value) and the Genesis framework ($60 value). Total value: $435
