Hi All,

I am looking to add some bling to my blog. I love when a reviewer adds something to the end of their reviews

ex: 4 hearts, 3 stars, 2 lips, 1 and a half roses etc

 

or things like the book was 4 chilis hot, 3 flames hot etc

 

 or an "I recommend" button

I am only somewhat computer savy so where/how can I go to design some of these things or have them done for me?

 

Thanks for any & all advice

Kerry

I am a book addict...and proud of it

Look online for tutorials.

I have Photoshop (you can get an old version for a few bucks and it would be good enough for your needs).

Hi Kerry,

You might want to check out Lori at Imagination Designs. She just put together a custom design for my blog and I love it ;)

You can do a yahoo search and see her portfolio!

Good luck!

Colleen

Thank you both for your suggestions

Kerry

You could just find an image of what you want (make sure it's free to use!) and then put it in your reviews with a little HTML.

I made my own up in Photoshop and illustrator using free already made images, I think they turned out great. They are both a rating system and a book badge. I have the book badges shown on the side and the rating ones under the review policy tab.

Maybe you could do something similar... Have a look: http://www.bookenslaved.com/

Those badges look great!!
