For today’s contest – she is offering ONE LUCKY PHOTOGRAPHER a NEW or Re-designed Blog!

Michelle Masser Photography – A redesign of Photopro in WordPress

The Contest:
The prize will be a new blog or redesign of the winner’s blog in either Blogger or WordPress format.

What is a redesign?

A redesign is a freshening up of an existing blog. It can may simple or a complete change… depending on the winner’s preference. Some elements that can be changed are banners & slideshows, post footers, menu buttons, backgrounds, fonts & colors. The layout can also be changed in ways like sidebar and post widths, the entire blog width, spaces & padding between elements.

What if I don’t have a blog?

If you don’t have a blog but would like one it’s as easy as signing up with Blogger or WordPress, both are free but there are some small costs associated such as a domain name and hosting for your site if using WordPress.  A basic template will be installed & then customized for the winner if they are new to blogging.

The contest does NOT include a domain, hosting, ecommerce (shopping cart) design, complex hand drawn art, logos.

    I just have the basic free blog design. I think it looks cluttered, and unprofessional. I’d love something fresh, modern and clean.

    I don’t have a blog but would love one so that I could record the random things that happen around here with my family. Recording things on a daily/weekly basis would be awesome…and a blog would make me be accountable so that I would update it frequently.

    I don’t have a blog, but I’ve been trying to figure out how to get one going for qhile now. I’ve been hesitating because I want to make sure it represents my style as well as looking professional. I think it would drive a lot of people to my website, and I would love to share stories along with my clients sneak peek. I have great clients, and I think they would enjoy the blog and little insider stories. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win. Your blog designs are beautiful.

    I don’t have a blog but would love one. I think it would be so much fun to have one to show friends and supporters what my style of photography is and how it will change with time. I would also like to do fun photography “projects” and show them off on a blog. 🙂

    I am waaayyyy behind in catching up in this digital era! I would love to have a blog, but don’t know the fist thing about doing it! I am just transiting from my medium format camera to digital! Excited to learn all the new techniques, but a little scared at the same time!

    I have a blog. It helps my business to some degree but I could sure use a redesign.

    I have a blog but it really stinks! I have a vision but can’t figure it out for myself and don’t know who to ask. Would love, love, love some help!!!

    I would love a new blog. Mine is not very professional for one thing. I need a facelift. My photography is good but my layout looks like I did it myself- ugh! I get a lot of clients from my blog and so I have needed to get something done.

    I started this as a personal blog but would like to turn it into something more professional to promote my photography. I have good ideas, but need help with the design/coding. So this would be perfect!

    My blog helps give prospective customers an idea of how I shoot. I think its simplicity makes it very intuitive. I’d like to get more creative with the banner, but it’s all I have for now. Maybe I’ll win and then it’ll be a different story.

    Would love to start blogging not sure what I would blog about, but stuff always has a way of popping up!

    I have a blog, but I would love for it to be updated and look more professional. I wish it had a flash header on it. I would like to get more traffic. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
