People who don't live up to their word drive me
I'm not going to mention any names.....
I paid a blog designer for a blog design,
that's what blog designers are supposed to do.....
After lots of back and forth, I finally got her to do what I wanted.
She was not the easiest to work with, and she did some strange stuff.....
like posting the new design before we had it all worked out.
while it was under design, it could be seen.
That's like going to a party, and having the hairdresser do a foil wrap for your color right there in the middle of the host's living room.
I was not amused.
But I kept my calm, and worked with her till it was what I wanted.
She kept some of the images of the fonts used, in her Photobucket account.
She wouldn't let me have them.
She wanted control of them.
I asked her what would happen if she let her account lapse???????
She assured me that that would NEVER HAPPEN!!!!!
Guess what happened!!!!!!
Can you guess?????
Give it a try.....
SHE LET IT LAPSE!!!!!
everywhere that there was a word, such as the menu at the top of the blog,
and my links to twitter and Facebook and Pinterest
WAS REPLACED BY A PHOTOBUCKET ICON
I had a line of these marching across my blog just below my header.
And then they were sprinkled throughout my side bar.
Amy, from Maison Decor, called me a few days ago to alert me to this situation.
She had used the same designer, and her blog had the same problem.
When we clicked on over to the designers website.....
GUESS WHAT SHE HAD POSTED!!!!!
Can you guess?????
Her blog design business is on hiatus until further notice.
Amy wrote her an email, writing to the contact address she had listed,
and of course SHE DIDN'T RESPOND.
today I replaced the Photobucket icons with the best I could do using Blogger's template.
IT LOOKS CRAPPY,
but at least my navigation menu at the top of my blog is visible again.
I Googled how to add buttons for following through Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest.
I feel very smart for following how to do it.
So I did it.
BUT IT LOOKS CRAPPY.
I need to find a new blog designer.
If anyone knows one that they like, please leave a comment.
I'm sure that some of my readers have used the same designer that I did, and have experienced the same issue.
after not writing for a few weeks,
what do I do?????
Do I write about design?????
NO I DON'T.
I just use you guys for a venting platform.
I NEEDED TO VENT MY SPLEEN!!!!!
well, now I feel better.
I'm back in Massachusetts, and the snow is halfway up my windows.
(while I was gone, one of my bookshelves gave way.....)
I left Flerida yesterday.
why why why why why???????
I know my parents appreciate my return,
On that note,
(she even screwed up my signature)
It's the cursed Photobucket icon.
