Over the last couple of weeks I ran a poll here at ProBlogger which asked readers who designed their blogs.
1828 readers responded in total (thanks everyone).
DIY – The results showed that 57% of you either considerably tweaked a free template (35%) or designed your blog from scratch yourself (22%).
Free Templates - Another 32% of you are using a free template (either a default template that came with your platform (11%) or one from some other source (21%).
Paid Designs – Just 12% of ProBlogger readers paid for their blog design – either by buying a non unique ‘premium’ theme (5%) or hiring a designer (7%).
Here’s how the breakdown looks.
