Construction Ahead

I’ve been wanting to give my site a face lift for quite some time now.  I’ve toyed with the idea of switching from my current free theme to the Genesis Framework from construction There are several child themes that I like, and with time, any one of them can be tweaked to be completely unique from any other site.

I’ve actually even installed a couple of the child themes and looked at them with the theme preview plugin.

But, I’ve hemmed and I’ve hawed.

Change makes me nervous.  Quite frankly, while I have been learning code and all things related, I just don’t have the energy, or desire, to tackle a redesign on my own.  I love playing around in PSP and CS3, but the truth is, it would take me a year to design something that A) I like,  B) didn’t look like a 2 year old designed it, and C) I was excited enough about to actually display on my site.  So, I’ve found that redesigning my site keeps taking a back seat to everything else.

I had heard that Greg from Telling Dad is now doing site designs, through his new company, Engine1Media, and thought, “That’s cool.”  Then I started seeing some of his work.  LOVE. IT.   His designs are fresh, crisp, and unlike any I have seen before, and I have loved every one of them.

So, after much consideration, I’ve decided to take the plunge, and hire Greg.   I’ve completed the questionnaire that he provided, and look forward to him getting started.

Things will look different here in the new year, and I can’t wait!

Speaking of Greg getting started.  One of the questions he asked was whether or not I have a tagline for my site.

Um, no.

I called my friend (and former roommate), LaTonya, who works in marketing and asked if a tagline was necessary.  While not necessary, she said, it is a good idea to have one.

I’ve tried to think of one, but I’m just flummoxed.

Any suggestions?
