Wahoo, 100!!

100followers

Trying to get your hedgehog to wear a party hat is quite a task. Abrahammy kept bucking the hat off of his head so it is practically on his back in the shot, haha, but he was a trooper.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

March is going to be a fun month for my blog, on top of regular posts I am headed to Japan at the end of the month! This means I am going to document the adventure. While I am away I am not sure how frequently I will be able to post so I am looking for guest bloggers to step in.

Interested in being a guest blogger on ShyScout?
Just shoot me an email at ammcgin@gmail.com today! I am not too picky, so if you have a fun idea for what you'd like to write about I am pretty open. I am hoping to have at least a weeks worth of guest bloggers to make sure I am covered.

ANYONE INTERESTED IN A BLOG LAYOUT DESIGN/REDESIGN OR CUSTOM GRAPHICS?

blogdesignservices


I have been thinking about this for awhile now, and I was wondering if any of you would possibly be interested in me designing the layout of your blog for you. I recently graduated from school for Graphic Design and want to put my talent and know-how to use. I am thinking about creating a blog design service - depending on the response I get from you folks.

Should I try it out? What are you guys looking for?


My blog design services would/could include:
- Complete blog makeover - I would design your header, customize your self-portrait, links, sidebar, navigation, background, blog signature, footer, and buttons.
- Customized header
- Customized About me section
- Customized links
- Customized self-potrait/about me
- Customized buttons - I will make you a new one or a series.
- Customized Ads - I will make you web advertisements for your store.
- Customized background - I can create patterns, graphics, and illustrations.

I can help you rebrand yourself and your blog if you let me :]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anywho, I hope you all have a lovely weekend! See you Monday.

  4. Congrats on all the followers! You deserve them :)
    Blog designing is a great idea, or you could maybe do some tutorials? I'm DYING to know how to learn all the html/css to design a layout from scratch as right now I only know little chunks here and there that I can only shove into pre existing layouts :(

    1. Thank you so much!

      I would love to do tutorials as well. I just didn't know where to start. I will start working on some posts to help people learn the ropes when it comes to html & css :]

  5. Who wouldn't like someone to redesign a blog? I really enjoy the layout of yours but, since you won't be able to help out everyone tutorials would be awesome if you taught us the aesthetics that makes your work look good.

    1. Your comments always make me smile lady!!

      -Thank you so much, eeeep! I didn't think I would reach 100 in a year when I first started.
      - Hedgehogs are pretty stinken adorable and sweet pets. Abe loves to snuggle and lets me dress him up in ridiculous get up :]
      - I would really love for you to do a guest post on my blog, I can't wait to hear what you come up with. I leave for Japan on the 25th so you have a bit of time to think on it.

  7. I just love Abraham! He's the cutest, most unique pet ever!!! (I hope my pets don't see this!) ;)
    How exciting - a trip to Japan!!!! You freakin' lucky traveler. I'm excited to see all the pictures from that trip.
    I'd like to do a guest post....just have no idea at the moment what I'd do it on..Hmm...let me think on that.
    Girl, I would LOVE to let you customize my blog and made it a lot prettier than it is. It's so boring right now; I just don't know how to change the settings. I'm really dumb with computer stuff. But yeah, I'd love to pay you to do mine. What are the prices you'd charge for all that stuff up there? I'd definitely think about it for when we get paid. :)
    Congrats again on getting over 100 followers!!!

    1. -Haha, abraham is getting a big head with all of these compliments.
      - I am so excited, and so very lucky to be able to go. All of my money from friends and family for graduating school is funding this adventure.
      - I am not leaving until the 25th so there is still plenty-o-time to come up with a guest post. I would love for you to write one. I know most bloggers typically come up with what they want people to do but I would rather have whatever each of you is interested in to keep it unique.
      - I would love to help you out with your blog! I am not sure yet about the pricing, I wanted to see what everyone thought about it first before I started to actually pursue making it happen. I need to do a bit of research first, see what others are charging and what not but I will keep you posted!!
      - & thank you. I was telling everyone I knew all weekend. Pretttyyy sure everyone thinks I am an even bigger nerd now, haha.

  8. Oh, sweetie, congratulations on your 100 followers! Your blog is very nice, and it pays off! Actually, your designing skills may be useful.. I have very basic computer skills yet I am trying to manage my blogging and still look somewhat presentable and professional.. :)
    Good luck!

    1. I just shot you an email about the pricing and guest post. The summary: I am still working out pricing, but want it to be as affordable as possible. I will keep you, and the rest of my readers posted. And I would love for you to do a guest post. A crafty tutorial sounds fun!

  20. Wait do you REALLY have a hedgehog? I'm either really gullible or totally cuted out right now! (Probably a bit of both)

    Congratulations on reaching 100! I'm at 98 and the anticipation is high!

    Also I would love to guest on your blog while you're on holiday. I'll email you today :)

    1. Yes, I really do own a hedgehog :] He is an African Pygmy and about 1 year and a half. I love him to pieces.

      Thank you so much, and best of luck to you! You will hit 100 in now time.

      I would love for you to guest post, I just emailed you back!

  22. Celebration time! Congratulations! (Unfortunately, the tumblr gif loving person I am, I can't put Barney Stinson's "high 5" into this post. So just imagine that one. High5!) :)

    I don't think it's so unhealthy to eat a cookie or two. Better than a whole cookie jar ;) Last night I ate a whole chocolate bar while reading a book and thought "Oops, did I eat all of it now? Really?"

    I think you should go all in for the blog design service. Your own blog layout is so wonderful, I'm sure people would like to use your awesome graphic and layout skills!

    1. Haha, thank you so much! I wish that blogger comments would allow html - maybe they do, I should look in to it.

      Alright, sometimes it is more than two...occasionally. Sometimes you just don't realize until it is too late.

      Thank you :] I am looking in to it. I need to figure out pricing and what not. I think it would be so much fun.
