Blog Design Giveaway

My husband and I are starting a Blog Design Business. I've been learning a lot about HTML codes to get us started. Also I took an advanced Blog Design Workshop from April Showers. (She's currently having a giveaway too for a blog design or workshop registration-check it out!) Plus my husband is my own personal illustrator.

We've already done this blog design: Sew Cute Designs
My husband did this header for me and I did the menu bar and created the digital scrapbook papers: Brittany Rae Boutique
BUT we really need a name!!!! so we can create our site. Here's two we thought of...we're now leaning towards the first one since the 2nd one is kinda girly for my husband.
  • M&M Masterpieces (M&M for Mike and Maryanne, my husband and me)
    • Header - a computer screen with our site background surrounded by a picture frame
  • Bippity Boppity Blogs: Bringing the Fairy Tale to your Blog
    • Header - Modern Cinderella look with Mike and me on one side and our pumpkin carriage on the other
  • MM...Yummy Blog Designs (again MM for Mike and Maryanne, my husband and me)
    need ideas for the header - eating ice cream by the computer?
  • SHARE YOUR NAME IDEA
MANDATORY ENTRY
Please leave a comment with your vote and any other name suggestions for a blog design business! If we choose your suggestion, you can get a free blog design from us!

    Hi there. I just blogged about your naming contest. I'm actually a contributor @ Namethis and Squadhelp for crowdsourcers looking for domain names, brand names, etc.

    So here's what I think...

    The first name M&M Masterpiece sounds misleading because as you know M&M belongs to a chocolate company. "Masterpiece" is, however, a word that befits the concept. I can see you really are talented web designers. I love this blog template, everything is neat and properly laid out.

    Bippity Boppity Blogs - I like it.. clever and comical. I guess it's inspired by fairy godmother. But it's a tongue twister and may be hard to be remembered and/or pronounced by non-English speakers. But the letter B's redundancy is easy to recall for those with memory gaps, but again not for the non-English speakers.

    Yummy Blog Designs - It's cliche and common. Leave it.

    So my vote goes to the second.

    By the way, I have a new blog with a boring header. But I now think an overhaul is better. An image of a writing hand with pen is a good idea for the header where the title is. Blue and yellow is the motiff.

    I love contests like this... thanks for sharing it. I'm now a follower #96. Good luck to your contest. =)

    I would love to have a new button and header on my blog.

    newmami_rgv said...

    Well, I like the M&M but Avatarlady is right, I think chocolate.

    How about M&M's Icing on the Cake Designs(or just leave out the M&M's)... header with a layered cake with both you sitting on one of the layers... maybe one of you piping icing on the cake or better yet on a laptop (as the cake-topper!)

    I have another idea.... well sort of. I was thinking of an art easel, ur hubby drawing and you on the computer facing the other way. but no name yet?!?

    I need a header and buttons! A complete over-hall!

    I like MM... Yummy blog designs. Its cute. :)

    my idea: sweetdesigns.com with a tag: "dont let your blog hunger for to-die-for sweet web designs." or "I love deserts, but these designs are sweeter." If you are targeting international and local clients, i think the appropriate term is "sweet" and not "yummy". Only filipinos use those term always. :)

    •Bippity Boppity Blogs: Bringing the Fairy Tale to your Blog
    ◦Header - Modern Cinderella look with Mike and me on one side and our pumpkin carriage on the other

    This is the one I choice.
    Thanks for sharing your site with me.

    Thank you and I would like to be one of your followers. You have a great site and I love both of these. I would love to win things but i have only won one thing in my life that was a beautiful necklace.

    Chacoy said...

    Oh how fun! Congratulations to the both of you on fun and fantastic endevour!
    Ok I like all 3 of them though the second is my fave but might be a little to 'girly' for your DH I was thinking about:
    Tag Team with M&M or Tagged by M&M with some sort of grafitti looking site! It could still be girly & masculine at the same time depending on how you design it(which I see/know that you can!)
    It would be totally cool for a header that looks all *tagged up & have a fun pic of you & your hubby in like some sort of paint or such on your clothes or something. I don't know-it will all work out for you!
    I have a blog right now that was designed by a beautiful lady and she didn't finish and I can't find her anywhere. I would love for my blog to be finished but my dilemma is that I feel like a real 'debbie downer.' On my blog I blog about my life as a single mom to a tween boy, how i was diagnosed & deal with cancer while going to school with my crafts and recipes & reviews & giveaway's thrown in! So I would love to have a seperate blog(which I have named & set up but haven't started yet)to do my reviews & giveaway's on!
    Thank you for the opportunity!

    I like M & M Masterpieces the best!

    janene said...

    My blog needs a lot of help, but the thing I need the most is probably a header.
