UPDATE on 7.5.13. – Despite lots of emails back and forth with Amanda of Expresso Chic my new blog design was never completed. Instead I got a number of  broken promises and missed deadlines. The whole experience turned out to be a big time waster and I’m now back to upgrading my site myself. Ah well. It seemed like a nice idea at the time. Moving on . . .

Oh my goodness!! How very exciting. I’ve won one of the Blogathon prizes – a Blog Design by Expresso Chic.

I’ve helped so many people with their websites it will be such a treat to have someone help me with mine! Someone else to do the graphics, favicon and offer new ideas and skills. (What’s a Character Illustration, for example?)

And did you notice the last item – “Lifetime Support, Maintenance, and Updates”. Infinite possibilities of where this might lead!

If you’re a blog owner yourself, do make a note in your diary for the next Blogathon Bash which is June 21-24, 2013. It’s definitely worth doing if you want to move things forward painlessly. I’ll add a post to let you know as soon as sign-ups are open again.
