So let’s be real… I could ramble about boring things like blog layout, design and whitespace for hours and hours. But we try to keep our podcasts to a 30-ish minute max, so don’t fret.
I think my favorite part of my day-job is taking pieces of sales copy, playing devil’s advocate, cranking creative juices then tearing them apart. As nicely as possible, of course. Maybe it sounds odd, but I passionately love looking at websites, blogs, sales flyers, business cards, and even clients’ restaurant menus (yup, even restaurants need marketing tips!) and trying to find a way to do them a wee bit differently, using a creative twist.
Okay, maybe I simply love this week’s podcast because I’m a nerd. Or maybe it’s because it’s chalked full of good content! Whether you are a blog-expert or a newbie, isn’t it always so much fun to talk about our blog design?? Mine is never the way I want it. It’s an ever-changing monster that I adore! My layout to-do list is typically longer than my post to-do list! And I’m okay with that.
Why is this topic so important? Personally, I feel like your blog design says a lot about you and your “product” (i.e. your blog.) It’s the first impression that your current readers and future readers get of you. So, again, in my personal opinion, your blog design can be just as important as your content in most cases!
This week the Celebrate Southern Gals are bringing you a triple whammy! A podcast! A linkup! And a giveaway! It doesn’t get much cooler than that y’all!
