A New Look + A Giveaway

Good morning! Well, my blog looks a little different this morning, wouldn’t you say? Winking smile I have wanted to have a blog redesign for quite awhile, and when I spoke with Michelle at the Boston Food Bloggers launch party, she highly recommended her designer, Sarah from DODELINE Design. I got started emailing with Sarah right away, and then when I returned from vacation, she really got started on the redesign.

She is a genius! I didn’t really know what I wanted, except for a new header that reflected Travel, Wine, and Dine. So I sent her links to a few blog posts that contained photos that I have taken that I really like. Not long after, she somehow was able to pull together the perfect set of images. I wish I had an eye like that!

Thank you SO much, Sarah! Now to get new business cards that reflect my new blog and new consulting work!

To celebrate my new look, I’ll of course be popping some bubbly later in the week, BUT I also want to share Sarah’s talents with one lucky reader. Starting right now, I am holding a blog redesign giveaway. The giveaway will cover two hours of blog redesign time by Sarah which is enough for a brand new header and background. (Any work beyond two hours will be the financial responsibility of the winner.)

So, do you need a new blog look for spring? Enter to win one right now! Just leave me a comment here telling me why you want a blog redesign OR what you would like to do to redesign your blog.

Then link back from your blog and tweet a link to the contest if you are on Twitter.

I’ll announce a winner on Monday, February 21.

Good luck!

    I love the new look! I keep contemplating a redesign but I think I may hold out for a little bit… so don’t enter me, but I needed to tell you how great your blog looks! I really love the color combo and how your header pictures all use those colors.

    The new look is great! I love the color palate. I could definitely use a little redesign – a better header and more cohesive branding via updated fonts and colors. Great giveaway!

    Looks great Meghan! A new look is always nice. I’ve been considering one for a while but it’s always hard to take the plunge.

    Seems like lots of people are in the mood for a change with the new year. I have a new design ready to roll out except that my technology skills are too limited to implement it. I have to wait for my tech friend to help me with the switch over. Hopefully before the end of the month!

    I love the new look. Design is definitely not one of my strengths. I’ve done everything on my blog myself, but I really don’t think it pops. My blogs look could definitely use some assistance.

    Love your new look! I could really use some new design on my blog, too. I feel like its pretty flat at this point and I’m not much for graphic design!

    I came across your blog and enjoy it. Mostly because I like to travel, I love my wines and I like food! I just started out blogging and would love to give my blog a proper look that suits me. I would like it if Sarah were to help me out on mine.

    I love the new look, it’s so smooth, classy, just beautiful! Honestly, I love my blog and I feel like I’ve done what I can with the look of it. I spend hours searching, twiddling with html, finding widgets when I could be spending that time cooking and writing about it! I think I’ve left bruises on my forehead from banging it against my laptop over and over again trying to get social media buttons to line up right (I still can’t do it) or find a cool, but pretty “share this” type thing for the end of posts! I want the design of my blog to match the beauty of the food I create!
