Buying a Blog template? Here's some tips

Thank you, Georgia.

Are you planning on buying a new blog template? Yes? Well, then you've reached the right page. No, I'm not selling any templates. I'll list some tips for you: 

  1. Know your budget. Buy a template that will fit your budget, don't buy too expensive one. 
  2. Ask yourself, if the template is worth the money. For example, you're going to buy a template which is by 20$... ask yourself "what makes this template different from the others?" and "are the features worth the money?" - Personally, I have some coding skills so I definitely won't buy a template that has features that I can make.. So, know your skills! 
  3. Wait, wait & wait. On black Friday, the templates are discounted too! So, have a little patience if possible.
  4.  Read the reviews about the shop/template. One of the most important things is reading others reviews about the shop/template. For example, I actually liked a template but then I read others reviews on how the shop's owner didn't provide any help and the template wasn't as it appeared on the shop. 
  5. Read the template's description. It's important to know if you can change the fonts/colours of the template or not. Or, you can add/remove a feature or not. 
READ, READ AND READ! If you're going buy a template, make sure to READ everything!

Do you have some other tips you'd like to include? 

With love,
K

  6. It's definitely so important to be aware of how much you can personalise a template! I love to change my blog colours around autumn/christmas time, so I couldn't stress that enough x

    1. You're welcome, darling! Plus, if you like a template then click on a heart icon ( which will be next to it ) - it means that you favorited it & if the owner put it on sale - You'll get an email! <3

  11. You have a very beautiful template yourself and it is very clean. These are very helpful tips especially on budgeting, but in my opinion its an investment worth making to your blog.

  15. This is so helpful! I have bought a template before to realise I couldn't easily change or customise it, or it would go very strange, I didn't like how it looked on a mobile device :D now I will only purchase if I know what it will look like as a mobile template. PS I love love your blog design! xx
