I was asked to be a speaker at the Six Sisters Stuff Build Your Blog Conference in SLC last month. I had a blast attending the conference, and it was such a neat experience to be able to teach a class alongside Lindsay from Artsy Fartsy Mama!

However, I did have some technical difficulties and didn’t get to cover all of the material I wanted to. So I made a video tutorial covering all of the major points I wanted to hit. I hope you find it helpful! (and be sure to block out a little bit of time for this one, it’s 30 minutes!)

  1. This video was so helpful! I’m a really visual person so it helped seeing what you were doing – and I love how your demo header was so much nicer than anything I’ve made! Haha. I never knew you could get rid of the standard Blogger header – I’ve been trying to figure out a way to get social media icons into the header and now I can do it. Thanks so much for making this video! I can’t wait to spruce up my blog!

  2. Wow, this was SO helpful, Ashton! Thanks SO much for sharing this! I love your blog design, but thought I could never do anything like it cause it’s so hard, but after watching this video, I’ve realised that it’s not so scary after all.

    Only thing is I have my own wordpress website (not I don’t think…), so I’m not sure if I can make an image with a menu bar and social media buttons…

  3. Ashton, thank you SO much for the tutorial . I watched this on Saturday and immediately went to design my own social media icons. I never knew about the image mapping website, and it seriously made it SO easy. I am not 100% happy with the size and placement o my social media bar, but I am slowly figuring it out! Thanks again!

  4. Seriously, this is the most helpful blog design tutorial ever! You ROCK! My blog definitely needs a makeover so I will be utilizing this in my free time. For real, my husband just might think I’m off my rocker when I do away with the housework this week and instead get to work on my {much needed} blog makeover! Thanks again!!
