...still de-stressin'...

This is my $75 blog "improvement". I said I "didn't want anything cutesy, but rather something sophisticated and elegant". If you think I'm being too harsh, please let me know. If you are confused, you're late to the party and will need to read the post right under this one. Feel free to vote on the poll......and by all means, click on picture so you can feel it's true "essence".

I'm sorry, but are you 100% sure this isn't something that Bella did?

Kristina P. said...

Wow. $75!!!!! That is insane. That should cost like $10.

Amy said...

OH girl! That is just so sad. So so sad.

In the interest of being nice, neutral and unbiased, I'll say this: As with any business, if you aren't satisfied, you should get your money back if the company cannot provide you with a product you can/will use.

Jeannie, I hope this gets resolved so that you don't need to "go public" with this person's name.

Grand Pooba said...

Aaaaack! That reminds me of the princess castle in the mario brothers game!

Times like these make me wish I were blind so yes, please poke my eyes out right now!

I don't think you were being harsh enough!! Blah, gag, and puke.

Saundra@ItalianMamaGoneCrazy said...

no... you are NOT being too harsh.

This is a free background I tell you!

Christina said...

Booooo!

I wouldn't even let my Paper-Doll Princess live in that castle!

Mimi said...

Dude, that is bad. Like dollar store kids products bad. Ouch.

I hope it gets worked out.

xoxo

Yikes. I would want my money back. It's not a bad design if you're into princess stuff. (Like say, if you were a 4 year old female blogger). This is DEFINITELY not "sophisticated and elegant". I don't think you are being too harsh in the least. I have zero talent when it comes to graphics/design, but I think even *I* have an idea of what is sophisticated and elegant.

April said...

PLEASE tell me you didn't really pay that much! Shoot, I could have done that for you for free! Sorry, but I can't find anything classy or elegant about it! Looks like something that was created by a preschooler!

Sarah said...

Wow - You can get free layouts that look a lot better!

Janelle said...

Ok, I had to go back and read the previous rant...i mean post! Wowsers, nothing like some gret customer service there!! Hopefully she gives you your $$ back!

Punkn said...

OMG that is just WRONG! Maybe you should use it for a few days with credit given where credit is due... BOLD LETTERING - site design by_____________. It would serve him/her right.

Sonya said...

Whoa! That just plain sucks! I'm sorry you are having to deal with an (insert bad word here) like that. I agree with the others, you should totally get your money back. There is NOTHING sophisticated or elegant about that design.

Sonya said...

Btw....I also LOVE how you saved the template as WTF image...Haha!

Anjeny said...

Read your last post along with this one. That new design is real rip-off, the design you have right now is more elegant than that new one.

What the designer said about not being an artist, I'm sorry but I thought a designer is an artist, if they can't do the art part, why didn't hook up with other artists if they want to design blog? You are right, a 3rd grader can totally create that new design they made for you and it cost $75? Are they flipping crazy?

If you are still looking for a blog designer, you can check out the girl who designed my blog. She actually work with the suggestions you send in and will keep working on it til you are happy with the design...just saying.

I do like the way your blog looks right now.

Brandy said...

I came back for another peek b/c I realized your old banner was still up when I was here before.

Me likey. That beotch should pay you for not putting her name out there.

Jennifer said...

Girl, that looks like sophistishit! Oh my, did I just say that outloud? REFUND!!!!!

Renee said...

You did say not cutesy right? I really prefer your current blog design. A thousand times better.

Jenn@mylifewiththecrazies said...

Am shocked and speechless... love the current one.. but my goodness... not good!!! Not good at all!! ( maybe for my daughter llol)

Heatherlyn said...

NO WAY!!!! That is every bit as bad as your previous post indicated. You will laugh about this. Someday. :)

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

$75?? Umm, if you don't like it speak up! I hated to do it but my first blogover I did not like what she had done and I wasn't going to say anything, cause I felt bad, but in the end it wasn't what I'd asked for and I spoke up and now I'm happy. You hired a person to do a job for you and you should get revisions if you are NOT happy with it. And I wouldn't be happy with that to be honest!

Janna Bee said...

That. is. Bad.

ChicagoLady said...

That castle was awful!

But where did the monkeys go? They were CUTE!

♥georgie♥ said...

now that i have my wits about me...are your friggin kiddin me????

Revka Stearns said...

This is exactly why I offer no-limit revisions and a 100% satisfaction guarantee. My interpretation of your request obviously wasn't at all what you wanted. So work with me to make me understand. That's what I asked.

Since you have confirmed that you no longer wish to work with me, I have issued your refund in accordance with my openly-stated 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Best of luck to you.

babyrocasmama said...

Again, I told you she would post a comment on your blog. She is not a happy camper, it seems, but when someone asks for "regal and elegant" you DO NOT give them Hello Fucking Kitty!

'Nuff said.

babyrocasmama said...

Oh yeah, ain't this enough to make you want to slap a bitch??

Saundra@ItalianMamaGoneCrazy said...

Oh my word...

My 1 year old niece could have done a better job... with crayons and her feet!

$75 bucks??? I'd find out where she lives and drop it all off in pennies.

Tonya said...

Oh yeah...I'd be pissed!

Write From The Heart/Adori Graphics said...

At first I thought it couldn't really be so bad but having seen it I can see why you were disappointed. I would have been too. Still your new design is gorgeous :)

A Family Completed... said...

Oh that's awesome, really I thought you were possibly exaggerating... But WOW that did not disappoint!! I loved your rant I was cracking up. I FINALLY talked myself into a new design (currently waiting) and that was my biggest fear I would get some crap... but I went with April so I know I will love it!
Your's turned out GREAT
