How to Find a Web Designer to Design Your Blog

You may not want to design your blog yourself — who has time to mess with all that code? Web designers create Web sites and blogs for a living. Of course, because these Web-savvy professionals rely on their skills for income, they don’t do it for free.

If you’re lucky, you can find a Web designer who might also know a thing or two about setting up blog software — in fact, look for one who has some familiarity with the software you plan to use. If you’re really lucky, you might even know a designer already — but don’t be afraid to ask other bloggers for recommendations if you don’t.

Seek out the Web design professionals, check out Web sites and blogs, and don’t be afraid to ask questions of the designers you’re considering.

Here are some tips for finding the right Web designer for your blog:

  • Research any potential Web designer you’re considering, just like you would any Web service, from domain registration to Web hosting.

  • Check out the design companies and do some comparisons, especially when it comes to experience with blogs and your blogging software.

  • Don’t forget to ask for quotes and compare them!

If you’re thinking that maybe the whole technology side of blogging is not for you, don’t forget plenty of people can help (for a small — or not so small — fee)!
