Birdie’s Resolution: New Year, New Blog Design Contest

I had to share this because I very badly want to win it! I’ve been blogging for about a year now and can’t tell you how many countless hours I’ve spent searching through blogger templates. I crave change but haven’t found anything I absolutely love in the free template choices out there and just can’t afford the custom option yet! When I saw this contest in my reader today I ran over to see what it was about!

Gisele Jaquenod is having an amazing giveaway on her website! You can win a custom blog design that includes:

  • A custom blog theme/template for selfhosted WordPress or Blogger (no
  • Up to 15 credits in istockphoto images for the design (if you want more images, you’ll have to purchase them).
  • And up to 3 revisions of the blog sketch!
  • You will also get a 125 x 125 px banner for it!

Keep these important guidelines in mind:

  • The design will include fonts that are free for commercial use (but you can choose to buy yourself a professional one, there’s some really cheap ones).
  • The theme/template will include a credit link in the footer.
  • The prize does not include plugin customization, or anything like that outside the theme itself. Uploading content to the blog is your responsability.
  • If you have images you want included in the design, you must own them, or have a license for them. Using images right out of Google or other places won’t be possible.

To enter go to Gisele Jaquenod & Birdie’s blog and follow her entry rules which include subscribing to her blog, posting about the giveaway on your blog with provided banner, linking to the giveaway and commenting with your New Year resolutions. You can also tweet. All entries must be in one comment so put all of the info in that 1 comment. Contest ends on January 20th! Good Luck to everyone, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for this one!
