Author Posts August 19, 2009 at 4:31 pm #392173 littlemissfoodieMember Hi There, I have a friend who is a designer and he is going to create a new blog design for me. The problem is that blogging is like speaking another language to me so I have no idea what I need to ask him for. Does anyone know what size the header, background, buttons etc need to be. Is there a step by step list somewhere explaining how to upload a new design? Thanks very much in advance :) The blog I need help with is littlemissfoodie.com.

You will have to pay for the upgrade. http://support.wordpress.com/custom-css/ http://support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/ If your friend is going to design a whole new theme for you, then you’ll also pay to host your blog somewhere. The software at wordpress.ORG is free.

This is all so confusing… Maybe I should just hire a professional blog designer to do it?
