About three weeks ago I updated my weblog banner and decided that I would offer someone a chance at receiving a new one from me also. I was inundated with requests (not) to take up the offer. I think there are two factors at play here. One, not that many people knew about the offer, and two, the people that did know about it are quite happy with the banner they already have.
Here’s part of what Megan said:
"So my plea: Please Ms J. I need your help because I don’t know how to
do this and because I love you and because I linked to you and because
I was a single Mum for 27,000 years too (but the toad I kissed a few
years back turned into a Prince and now I am in love and got married
again in March) and because you can make the header part of my blog
look less like the incredible hulk hiding in the grass."
and part of what Lacey said:
"I love Your eye, and would simply adore working with someone who could
create something visually appealing to draw people in. Do you think you
can help me?!"
Megan definitely won the award in the sucking up department, but she needed quite a bit more than I thought I could give. She needed a WordPress guru to help her tidy up other aspects of her blog, not just mow the lawn on her banner. Luckily there are some very kind people out there and she found such a person so she didn’t need my services.
Actually, because I only received two requests I was going to let there be two winners, but as I’ve just said Megan has been sorted, so I will be doing a whizz-bang banner for Lacey. Psst, I think she could do a good job of it herself because I think she’s got a good eye too.
I will keep you posted!
