When I decided to create Blawnde, I had a vision of what I wanted this space to be, how I wanted it to feel, and what I wanted to share. I also had broad concepts of name, color palette, and layout. I was so excited to put it all together and start sharing all sorts of stuff with you guys, BUT…Domain? Hosting? DNS? HTML? Coding?!! AHHHHHHHH! Let’s just say I don’t exactly have the digital get down. I needed someone who got my vibe, understood what I wanted it to be, how I wanted it to look, and could make that shit happen. Enter my dear, beautiful, smarty pants friends, Lauryn, Erica, and Katie AKA the Website Witch Doctors.
This wicked little trio makes up Blog-Doo. Lauryn of The Skinny Confidential and Erica of Fashionlush created this genius consulting company that designs and builds blogs and websites. They can literally build it from the ground up based on an idea, like Blawnde, or they can do a full blown extreme makeover blog edition on existing sites. It’s insane.
My favorite part about working with them on this project was they L I S T E N. I can’t stand when I tell someone what I want and they give you something else. These girls want your blog to be YOU so when you give them your inspirations, color palette, font preference, whatever it is that is stylistically important to you, you will get it and you will love it. They also have a really awesome eye for what looks good on a site, so if you leave things open ended they are happy to take the design reigns and help you figure out what you like.
Ok! Here are few links so you can go learn more about these brilliant blog babes. On The Skinny Confidential and Fashionlush, this post and this post explain Blog Doo and the magic they make. Here are some of the other sites they’ve worked on so you can see how baller they are at blog creation and renovation. And this bad boy is the menu of all the yumminess you can order up for your blog.
Not only are these girls amazing blog whisperers, they are awesome, cool, super sweet people and working with them is such a delight! Keep an eye out — they are currently in the midst of brewing the Blog-Doo empire for people everywhere!
