  2. Hi there! Thank you for your blog and the instructions you give! I hope to have time to implement this info soon, so overwhelming! I too cannot DL the pdf. I did copy it to my PC as a png (the only option I had to save the pic).
    Thanks, Tif

  3. I too cannot download the PDF. I’ve tried downloading the plugin for Firefox and tried using Safari instead. Neither work. I just get redirected to the forum.

  4. I have tried to download the free PDF file but I can’t get it. I was using google chrome and now internet explore. Each time they go to catorgizes of blog design and no pdf opens.

  5. Love, love, love this wonderful advice :)

    Busy Mom and Busy Bee Worker, thank the heavens coffee is abundant and hugs from little one keep me grounded.

  15. As always that you so much for the great tips!

  16. Fabulous! Everything in one place, and it’s great to be able to see it all together. :)

  23. so cute! love it

  24. Thank you for this printable. It will come in handy!!

  25. Thanks for the really awesome printable! I have a question (and maybe you’ve answered this) but–what font do you use on as the header font for this blog? The scripty one. I think it would be perfect for some invitations I’m designing for my daughter’s Cinderella birthday party…


    • hello…did you get the name of the font..the one that says font…love the S…thankyou lee x.

  26. Thank you ! I am going to print this and put it in my blogging notebook.

  27. im currently working on the theme i have up right now and i think i have all this stuff :P still needs a lot of work though, but im no pro so it might take time.

  28. Thank you for all the wonderful advice! I have learned so much from SITS last month. Could not have done it without you!

  29. Thanks for all of the tips. I’ve been working on my blog design a lot these last few days. While I liked what I had created before, I didn’t feel that it reflected where my blog is going. I’ve since updated my header, and have made better use of my footer. Wouldn’t have done any of it without SITS!
