This is a completely self-gratuitous post (but really, what is a blog if it isn’t just a little bit self-gratuitous every once in a while?), but it’s burning on my mind, so I’m going to ask it for this week’s backwards Works-for-me-Wednesday:

I’m just itching to get my blog designed (that is, by someone who actually knows how to design, that someone not being me). I’ve found a couple of designers in my extensive search, but am really struggling to find ones that:
a) I like
b) I can afford
c) Are actually available now or in the very near future

Any recommendations? Pretty please? :)
