Makin' Cute Blogs
I stumbled upon this fantastic resource about six months ago. Makin' Cute Blogs features a number of tutorials (for Blogger, Wordpress and Photoshop) as well as inspiring blog designs that author Carolynn finds all across the internet. Aside from the tutorials and resources, she also has a design shop where you can purchase backgrounds, design elements and her Blogger DIY Blog Design & Revamp Course.
Kevin & Amanda
I've read Amanda's blog for years, and every time I read one of her posts, I am more and more inspired. If I'm not drooling over the delicious desserts she's sharing or green with envy over her latest travels, I'm picking up tips from her photography and blog tutorials. I've also grabbed more than my fair share of fonts from her free font website.
My husband and I bought a Canon Rebel XSI about two years ago, and I had no clue how to use it. My husband jumped right in, and tried to explain everything, but it was still not making sense. It was The Pioneer Woman's What the Heck is an Aperture? series that finally made it all click. Author Ree Drummond posts fantastic articles about cooking, photography, and life on a ranch. She's also created a fantastic set of free Photoshop and Photoshop Elements actions.
Katrina at Pugly Pixel is a huge source of inspiration. She provides tutorials, freebies, and a great marketplace where you can pick up some ideas and templates to trick out your blog. One of my favorite things about this site is that Katrina not only shows you how great something can look, but details how to make it happen in well-written tutorials. She also writes some fantastic lifestyle pieces and shares some great photographs.
