Creating Your Own Design
Some of the most exciting art appearing on the Internet is created by blog designers. Because blogs have become such an integral part of both the private and public sector, designing them in eye-catching ways has become an art form all its own. As an artist you can use a piece of your own art to create the components of any given template (header, background, sidebars and footers) on your hosted blog site. Most hosting services offer an option for "customizing your design." Simply take their stated dimensions (for header, footer, background, etc.) and shape your artwork in Photoshop to fit in that space. Upload your saved files by following the instructions provided by your hosting service.
Advanced Design: Creating Your Own Template
If you’re looking for more freedom in the appearance and layout of your blog, you can design your own template. Blog-hosting sites are able to offer make-your-own blogs by running their services on a content management system, or CMS. You too can work with a CMS. Companies such as Joomla! and WordPress offer software that allows you to customize your template. The advantage of using a CMS is that you’re able to avoid the cookie-cutter template options available through most blog-hosting services and create one suited to your design and functionality needs. While most artists and journalers will find their needs met by one of the popular blog-hosting services, the CMS offers a high degree of flexibility and optimization. However, once you, the artist, have created the artwork and layout you’d like to feature on your site, unless you have programming experience, you’ll want to hire a programmer with Cascading Style Sheet skills to get your designs "plugged in" and ready to launch.Check out this free excerpt from Digital Art Wonderland: Tips and samples to start your art/journal blog!
