I have been working with childrens and family photographer Erin Johnson on a new blog to display her pictures. Erin designed the banner, logo and color scheme herself, and had a vision of what she wanted her blog to look like. Working together, we've created a fresh, modern blog to display her amazing images.

I used my own blog setup as a base, and built from there. As you can see, many changes were made! Rather than having sidebars that distract from the photographs, Erin chose a 1 column layout, leaving the pictures as the focus. I put blog widgets at the bottom as a footer, so they are still available (subscription links, etc).
During this design I learned:
- how to add a second main linkbar spanning the blog
- how to add a welcome message that appears only on the home page
- how to add in-line comments with colored backgrounds to make them stand out
It was wonderful to have this opportunity to help Erin develop the new look for her business. Please check out her site and leave comments for her!
