Blog Advice!

So as I have been browsing around the blog world, I have come to the conclusion that most blogs I have found:

  • A) Have their own web address without the “wordpress” or “blogger” in it.
  • B) Have awesome layouts that were custom designed for them
  • C) Have sponsors, giveaways, etc.

Which leads me to the point of this quick post. I’m interested in all of the above, but where should I start first? I think in order to fully customize your own layout on wordpress, you need to buy something before you can fully customize your design. I wish someone would correct me if I’m wrong, but I think that’s right from what I can tell.

I’ve found several blog designers that have GREAT work, but I’m not sure which one I should go with. I think it will take some time to get my blog to where I want it, but I’m impatient and excited about this so I want everything to happen now! haha. Anyways, as with my previous post advice would be helpful! Thank you!
