I finished up another project late lastnight, This Eclectic Life is written by Shelly Kneupper Tucker. She’s a sweetheart of a blogger, so you really should stop by and read her way more often than just going over there today to tell her how very much you love her new look (hint hint).
She just recently made the jump from blogger to WordPress, and she even used my extensive How To Leave Blogger post as her guide. And then I kinda helped her here and there as she got her feet wet, but it didn’t take her long to settle in, that’s for sure.
She’s all hooked up with some pretty neat plugins (a couple of them I don’t even have yet), custom graphics (as is standard on all my designs) – and I even cartooned her header image for her (you can see the old one here, as well as the design she had grown accustomed to.)
“All I really told Leanne about what I wanted for design was : cartoon my hands and paint the fingernails red; I want the colors to be red, black, and gray; use Courier font, because I want it to look like it was typed on an old manual typewriter, and keep it simple. I had no idea her imagination would come up with something that is this much fun.”
Shelly has basically undergone a huge blog transformation over the last couple of weeks. I applaud her tenacity to take the jump from one platform to another – to get her hands dirty in a little code and a little ftp’ing, and really take her blog to another level.
::sniffles:: I kinda feel like a proud new mama.
Special thanks to YellowRose, who pointed this super cool chick my way.
Go on over to Shelly’s and have a look around!
