Hi there! Welcome to Maggie’s Workshop! ❤ In this post, I share why I’m celebrating, as well as how YOU can join in on the fun!
Thank You For 2K!
When I first created this blog last winter, I NEVER would have guessed that I would get this far in just over one year! There are few things that have delightfully surprised me more, and I can’t say ‘thank you’ enough!
If I had to choose three main things that got me here, I would pick community, dedication, and experimentation. Nothing could be accomplished anywhere online without the support of others – and my blog is no different! Every comment I’ve ever received has kept me moving forward. ❤ Dedication has also had a lot to do with the growth of my blog, as I’ve kept up with it weekly since January of 2017 (save the two times I took a break!). Lastly, figuring out what you like to write and seeing what others love to read is the balancing act of blog experimentation! Keeping your site a mixture of these two things takes time, work, and passionate writing.
While thinking of a way to rightfully express my gratitude and celebrate this exciting blog milestone, I came up with something! By taking two of my favorite things about blogging – which is blog customization and teaching other bloggers – I have come up with a workshop for my blog!
This is why today, I am happy to introduce to you …
My Blog Design Workshop
+ FREE Blog Coaching!
First of all, you may be wondering, why am I interested in blog design? It’s because I have been designing my own blogs for years, and I used to make Disney edits on Instagram a few years ago! Both of these hobbies have attributed to my love for photography, digital design, and all things blog customization.
Next, you’ll probably ask: what designs do I offer? I’m completely open to whatever you’d like to decorate your blog! If you’d like a blog button with a cool design or a professional header, or you want a pretty signature to end your posts with – I’d be happy to work with you via email if you sign up through one of the easy forms below! (Feel free to ask any questions you have in the comments – I’m here to help!)
You’d probably like to know this, as well: which apps/websites do I get my photos from? The base of most of my designs is beautiful, free stock photos from various websites, such as Pixabay, Pexels, and Unsplash. To customize these pictures, I use the app ‘Rookie Cam’ on my iPhone 5s, as well as ‘Superimpose’! These are the five sources that allow me to use my creative energy for something useful. 🙂
Just in case you’re wondering: how long will they take to make? That depends on how many other people would like blog designs! I will keep up with a queue to make sure that everyone gets their designs in the order that they’ve signed up. ❤ I will be working on the designs as I am able!
The final thing you probably want to know is this: how much does it cost? Because this is a true hobby and favorite pastime of mine (and also because I’m not considering making this a small business – yet!), all you have to do to qualify is REBLOG THIS POST so that others will know about my blog designs! I am completely open to helping anyone achieve the blog design they envision. Even through the thick of all the crazy customization settings on WordPress, it is possible!
NOTE: To be added to the queue, simply
1) Email me your completed form,
2) Comment on this post that you’ve emailed me, and
3) Reblog this post on your blog to share with others!

Dreaming of Guatemala!
Many of you have probably seen my ‘About The Blog’ page, which is where I shared information on why I began blogging and how that journey has gone for me so far! Even though Dreaming of Guatemala is only just over a year old, I have been blogging for nearly seven years now. I definitely know my way around the dashboard, and more recently, I’ve been learning so much about how it works to blog when you’re part of a community.
Having the chance to share my experiences and tips with you guys would make me so happy! This is why near the end of each month, I’ll be sharing a post asking you to submit any questions you may have about blogging, and I will do my best to answer them! Once everyone has shared their questions, I’ll be writing a post on the first of the following month (the first edition will be on May 1st) to hopefully teach and inspire you with my blogging tips!
Thank you so very much for reading! I can’t tell you what a pleasure it is to know that two thousand people hit the follow button on my blog. The sharing of today’s post is the biggest thanks in return that I can give you!
