Contact Michelle Laycock for your coordinated blog banners, backgrounds and signatures!

Since starting Blogs By Heather, Michelle Laycock has been my design partner.  She is my head graphic designer. She worked 13+ years in the publishing industry for a local newspaper and as of March 2008 has been doing blog design for small businesses full time.  She does have a waiting list but her work is exceptional! 

We work really well together and provide services that compliment each other.

Katie Burke, I Blog For Demos, is a fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator who is blog savvy and also would love to help demonstrators make the most of their blogs.

Katie’s mission with “I Blog For Demos” is simple….
To provide my fellow Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators with current, relevant, and updated blog entries without the stress of having to do it themselves! 

To accomplish this she has developed different packages so there is something for everyone; whether you need help with a post every now and then (Ala Carte Service) or if you need to post almost every day (see VIP Package); or something in between (see the Basic or Professional Package).

Stamping Updates Newsletters (SUN)

If you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and need help with email marketing and newsletter services, contact Debbie McNeill, CraftyPerson Productions.

Debbie creates your newsletters each month with all the content you’ll ever need (and you can even customize much of it, such as your schedule of events, opening paragraph, and more). She generates the HTML and Text files for all newsletters and you just have to copy and paste them into your newsletter service (such as Constant Contact, MailChimp, iContact, MyNewsletter Builder, Aweber, Vertical Response, etc.).

If you need help with the copying and pasting I have tutorials to help with that here, or I have an “assistance” program as well.

Many of my clients use TypePad! If you are looking to start a new blog, try TypePad for two weeks FREE!

One of the reasons I recommend TypePad over Blogger is that TypePad has “unlimited” pages where Blogger only has a 10 page limit. So if you are creating a blog in regards to building a blog store or creating a bunch of landing pages, then TypePad would be a better fit. 

Give it a try!  Have a Blogger blog? I can help with a Blog Transfer as well!
