First off, Tutus & Tea Parties has a great post on 7 Sites to promote your blog. Lauren shared some tools to help you get your blog out there and drive traffic to your site. Go on over and check out what she has to say.
I really don't know how all of you bloggers out there have such great looking sites! I know I will eventually spend some time and resources attempting to make my blog a little better, but for now, I'm trying to learn about all of the mommy blogger designers out there to figure out which direction I will go.
Erin at Living In Yellow (an absolutely hysterical blog!), is hosting a giveaway for Cherry on Top Blog Shoppe. Melissa is a graphic design student and is offering a discount for future work if you don't win the giveaway. She is super talented and is very reasonable! Also check out her fun personal blog, 20 Going on 80.
