Purely Sensible Design

Okay….so I’m a little late, but better late than never, right? The truth is I spent quite a bit of time over the weekend working on another project, and then when I tried to get away today to work on the finishing touches of the business website, my plans went down the tubes. Ruben kindly let me sneak out of the house so that I could go to a certain fast food restaurant for their free wi-fi. Um…too bad the wi-fi turned out to be extremely s.l.o.w. and twenty minutes after I sat down, I still had nothing done due to the slow connection and the timing out.

I decided to try Starbucks instead, but right after I pulled in, Ruben called me with the news that I needed to go home because he got a phone call and needed to fax some things asap. And we don’t own a fax machine, so, he needed the car. Long story short, I spent the afternoon trying to finish the website amidst wild children and ended up taking several breaks. But it’s done. Finally.

The name? The business is called “Purely Sensible Design,” and I’ll be specializing in blog design for Blogger, self-hosted WordPress blogs, and blogs. You can visit the site by going to :-) And I truly have to thank the Lord for giving me the vision for this website and for His strength in getting it where it is today. It wasn’t easy.

Onto the giveaway!

I’m giving away a blog design for any of the three types of blogs that I’ll be designing! You can have a Blogger,, or self-hosted WordPress blog. And here’s what the blog design makeover will include:

:: Custom Header
:: Custom Background
:: 1-3 Columns
:: Customization of Blogger Template for Blogger blogs or Theme for WordPress blogs
:: Blog Button with HTML grab code
:: Blog Signature
:: Favicon
:: Five Custom Sidebar Titles
:: Up to 3 Revisions
:: Installation
:: Minor tweaks for 24 hours following installation

*please note that if you have a blog, you will need to purchase the Custom CSS upgrade ($14.97 per year with WordPress) for your blog before design work can be started*
