compose an appealing blog post with blog & inspiration boards

Today we have another excellent use of the Blog & Inspiration Boards: Hot Off The Presses. Karen of KarenLeslie Photography writes, "I love using the Blog & Print Inspiration Boards to make my blog posts look crisp, clean & professional. So when I needed to upload the look of my website splash page and blog header, I looked to my design aglow products for inspiration. My website is my # 1 marketing tool, so making a great first impression is very important to me. Since I love how the inspiration boards make my blog posts look, I figured they would make a great graphic on my splash page. I picked some of my favorite photos from my Fall sessions and had a new design in minutes. I used the tag graphic for my logo as additional design interest. I then carried over the look to my blog by pulling apart one of the Inspiration Boards. I just took three of the frames, plus the tag (for consistency) and updated the slideshow header on my blog with new images.

These templates are like having a graphic designer sitting next to me at all times. What I Iove about the Design Aglow products are that they are incredibly easy to use, stylish and customizable so that they fit my brand. I've already had several clients comment on how nice the splash page and blog look with the new design!" Thank you for sharing with us Karen! Enjoy your $75 gift certificate in the shop!

I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
