Nerd Party: Clever Coding & Design Tips for Busy Bloggers by Sarah at Silly Grrl!

 

NERD PARTY: Clever Coding & Design Tips for Busy Bloggers

Sarah says, “Your design is the first thing people see when they visit your website. Before they read a word, before they look at your photos, before they know anything about you. Through this book I hope to help you define your style as a blogger, share your message, your business or your passion, and encourage your readers to stick around and participate.

It includes 10 brand new tutorials for Blogger and WordPress, tools for creating a user-friendly design, instructions for altering your template’s layout, tips for building professional looking photo galleries, ideas for using analytics to aid in your blog design, instructions on unlocking the power of Google’s Keyword Tool, and more!

This book is perfect for the blogger who has basic coding knowledge and is looking to add new design elements or change their layout of their site.”

 

Hi, I’m Sarah!

I’m a web designing circus performer based just outside Detroit. I’ve been nursing an internet addiction since age 13  and working professionally as a designer since 2005. In 2012 I escaped my corporate job to get back to what I love – working on creative projects with bloggers and small businesses.

When not glued to my computer, I can be found swinging from my trapeze, lyra and aerial silks with The Weird Sisters Circus and teaching at Agora Arts.
