    Posted the following comment on Heather’s Blog under Build a Beautiful Blog Week 2011…May 23rd Entry…Chance to win a blog makeover! on May 23,2011 post:

    I’ve been looking at doing a blog make over for a long time now. Keep debating between paying someone to do it or try to learn it & do it myself. The only make over my blog gets is updating the background and fonts for each holiday/season. Fun but not enough to show professionalism or consistency. Not sure what to do next. And how often do you choose to do a blog make over?
