A Giveaway

Why? Because I like you.

And because we totally missed celebrating the 1 year mark for Simply Yours Designs in September. That month was a bit crazy for my family, and I have been sick since then. Anyway, enough of the explaining and on to the giveaway!

Simply Yours Designs is giving away one Simply Custom Design Package, which is a $90 value! It includes:

Simply Custom Design Package:

- a complete design made using your own specifications

- 2 or 3 columns

- custom header

- custom background to match header

- coordinating sidebar heading images (up to 5)

- personalized signature to appear at the end of each post (if desired)

- includes installation

This giveaway will end Monday October 26th, 2009 at midnight. That means you have a week to enter and spread the word. Here are the rules:

- Go to Simply Yours Designs and check out some of the latest designs in the portfolio.

- Leave one comment on this post before midnight on the 26th, telling me why your blog needs a new-do. Make sure you leave a way for me to get in contact with you when you win!

- There are opportunities to enter more than once in this contest by doing the following:
:: Tweet about this giveaway and link back to this post.

  18. My blog design doesn't really reflect who I am. It's cute, but I'd like a more modern spin. Each time I open up my homepage, I sigh because I love other designs and wish I could have something more "updated"! You did my buttons, so I know I love your work. :-)

  21. I'm just dipping my toe into blogging, but for me, "dipping my toe" tends to turn into "full-body whooping belly flop" pretty quickly, and I'm jonesing for one of your custom blog template designs. The standard blogger templates are so depressing that they're squashing my writing bug... I need your designs to help fuel my creativity. Please help!

  28. I SO NEED THIS!!! If you were to look at my blog you'd see why! :) I have wanted a new header (one that isn't so huge) and a signature line since I started blogging and I have tried to figure out how to put them on on my own but I am not computer savvy and the tough economic times are holding me back from spending the money on someone else doing it for me, but to win a fabulous giveaway like this one would be a fresh new start for my blog. Keeping my fingers crossed! you can reach me at jackson_ml@hotmail.com

  30. Hey :)

    I'm 20 years old and just starting out my photography business! Since I am a military wife doing photography has been a job that I know I can take around wherever my husband gets PCS-ed to, so it's been really hard trying to establish myself. The biggest things that brings in my clients is my blog. It's where I post up pictures of my latest work and entries that tell the story behind them. Families send the link to other family and friends to show their preview pictures that I took. We just shelled out a bunch of money to create our website, but now that I see how important my blog is to people I want it to be a little more personal. I have been scouring the internet searching for different templates, but am realizing the best ones out there cost money that I know we can't afford. If I won this contest it would be such a help to my husband and I! I think it is awesome that you are willing to give of your time to help someone out. Thanks so much!

  31. I need a new look! A professional new look!

    Why?

    Because I do and go and take and drive and buy and clean up after and cook for and, and, and... for everyone else so I freaking deserve a little something for just me!

    I have 99 followers so I think this would be the perfect way to celebrate #100, don't you?

    I'm off to post all about it!

  32. Thank you for the offer-
    I found you on "All that is Good", and am in desperate need of a "Real" blog makeover.
    I have been doing it myself, using all the free stuff, but I would like my own personal look.
    However-this is not in the recession budget, so I haven't paid to have it done...but am DYING to-I have such Ideas, and as computer illerate as I am-I can't do much more....
    Very sweet of you to do this-

  34. I would love a blog design of my own. Life isn't always easy especially lately and without bloggin I would be lost. I think eveyone should have a blog of their own and a custom look to go along with it is just a bonus! Blessings, Jenn

  35. I have tried doing my layout myself but there's some things I would like to add and can't figure out how to do it.

  36. I would love a new layout for our blog. I am new to blogging world and I would love to share my blog with many more people to keep them updated with our life and the fact that we just had a new baby after 13 years...so adjusting to motherhood and to blog world has been fun and challenging :)I would love for others to come to a blog that looks neat and organized and classy :)

  37. My freelance writing business is doing really well but my blog is so boring. I'd love to give visitors a fresher, more modern glimpse of me and how fun freelance writing can be, but I am very design-challenged and don't have a lot of money to spend out of pocket. I love what you did with the Gwendolyn Strong blog and would love a blog that beautiful and visually appealing!

  45. I am THRILLED to find you. I am starting my blog for women in business as I am a business coach. WOW there is such a need for the inspiration that you give and the motivation that I have to share! I will be thrilled to work with you on creating my great blog and web identity, your work is crisp, clear, and just what I have been looking for to share with all of my entrepreneurs that need a web presence yet don't know where to start! This is so exciting and I hope I will get a chance in this drawing to get a start on all I would like you to do for me, my business, and my fellow women entrepreneurs!

  46. Hi There! I am so excited about your custom design giveaway!!!! I am definitely in need of a new custom blog... Long story short: I started a website when my middle daughter was diagnosed with a terminal illness - it kept friends and family up to date on her appointments and health (having a 3year old, 16 month old, and infant was not conducive to phone calls :). However, I pay a fortune every month to keep the site up, and I could really use your custom design to make a FREE blogspot site for family, friends and newly diagnosed families to read. Times are tight and cost cutting is necessary - but I want to keep a cheerful and fun site up and running! Thank you for your consideration. Please email me if I win: vishawallace@gmail.com Thanks again!
