Stuck with a pre-made theme that’s not helping you achieve your traffic goals or reflecting your vision?
You’re killin’ it in the blogging world. You’re well over the 10K mark on IG, and you’re making a full-time income from your blog. You put in long days, planning, writing, shooting (and re-shooting), learning, and making sure your SEO is on point.
But…you’re struggling to leverage all your past content to get those new visitors to stick around. They also recognize your blog design as the same one that about 14,256 other bloggers have, so your blog doesn’t stand out in their eyes.
Imagine all the content you’ve put your heart into creating for years being SEEN and your bounce rate dropping.
Imagine getting back all the time you currently spend on tweaking and fighting with your pre-made theme trying to get it to do what you want, so you can get back to the important parts of your business that only you can do.
Imagine a theme that actually looks like you want it to look (without a single second of Googling and hoping and then yelling). You’d have a theme that reflects your vision and your personality perfectly.
The Total Blog Package is a custom theme built just for your big picture and vision.
Here’s how your custom blog will come to life:
- You’ll get an in-depth questionnaire (in an easy-to-fill-out digital worksheet)
So I can get inside your business and see it how you see it.
- We’ll meet over Skype you’ll get to see a new design
Since we’ll be face-to-face, you can ask me any questions you have and we can talk about any changes.
- Once it’s perfect, I’ll start writing the actual code that will make the blog come to life
- Your new design will be installed on your site (launch day!)
- You’ll get video tutorials of how to use all of your new features
Along with one week of support for follow-up questions.
Wondering if The Total Blog Package is right for you?
Not sure you’re at the right level for a custom blog yet?
That’s why my custom themes are specifically designed to help you achieve your goals. A quality theme will help you get to that level so much faster than chugging along with a pre-made theme that’s doing nothing for your SEO and stickiness.
Not sure I’ll get your vision?
Creating a new blog isn’t just a job for me, I really am passionate about helping YOU succeed. I will ask you a ton of questions (be ready!) and I will LISTEN to every word. I’m not here to make a blog that matches my taste, I’m here to make sure it reflects YOU.
Worried you’re not techy enough?
The theme will be installed for you so it is ready for you to keep blogging! And when we’re finished we’ll arrange a Skype walk-through and Q&A so you know how to use your new blog to the fullest.
You won’t need to use a single line of code to use or even tweak your new theme.
Things changed after I started working with Christina. In terms of numbers... I have been able to increase my traffic by 500% and site speed by at least 0.5 seconds. While the increase in traffic is not only because of working with Christina, she has a HUGE part in making my site function to deliver these results. If you need a developer, Christina is the person you need. I call her my secret weapon.
Christina totally gets what I need and want... She works quickly and efficiently and I can trust her with my website (my entire business lifeline!). I have the site that's perfect for my brand and she brought my vision to life... My website was a total stress for me, constantly. Now I know I have someone I can turn to. That's a huge relief.

I like that Christina listens and sees my vision! I also like her diligence and the level of care she put into our projects. From the beginning, I felt like I could trust her because she gave importance to our projects, because she knows they matter a lot to me. Having her is a game changer and I am forever grateful!!

After years of complications with other developers, so much money lost in payments that didn't result in a workable website, hidden costs, and months of unresponsiveness, I was just about to give up. Christina was an absolute dream. Our project only took less than a month (!!! after 3 years!) she was always enthusiastic, warm, creative, responsive, and everything you could want from a developer.

Need tech help? This girl is my blog lifesaver. For real. She's amazing!

Christina was incredibly helpful. She kindly organised everything which made my life so much easier. Would highly recommend if you're not good with the more technical aspects of blogging...

I CANNOT say enough good things about Christina. She has been beyond helpful and patient. She is very knowledgeable and was very prompt at responding any question I had. She went far and beyond and I HIGHLY recommend her!

Christina is simply amazing! I was pulling my hair out over some WordPress migration issues and she totally saved the day! She was quick to respond and explained everything clearly, and in terms that I could understand. I know who I’ll be contacting next time I have an issue!
I cannot say enough good things about Christina! She went above and beyond to help me. I had so many questions and issues but she answered them all and even took the time to create videos to show me what to do. She is wonderful! I will always contact her for blog help. I highly recommend her!
What you’ll get
- In-depth questionnaires so we can get to the heart of your blog and your goals
- A calendar of our upcoming work together so you know exactly when we’ll need to be available to each other, and when I’ll need your feedback
- A custom home page designed strategically to keep visitors clicking
- Custom designed blog page

- Access to ongoing support with me after we’re done
And all of this will come to life in less than ONE MONTH. You’re busy, and you can’t afford for a big project like this to drag on. In my years of experience, a one-month time frame is the sweet spot to give you a QUALITY designed and coded theme, and keep the momentum up and morale high.
How long will the process take?
ONE month from start to finish! And then I’ll be around for one week afterwards to answer any questions.
I’m not a blogger, do you do business sites too?
Yes, I love partnering with small businesses. The process is the same as creating a new blog design, only more goes into a business site, so the investment is higher. Contact me for details!
Will you disappear mid-project like other developers?
NEVER. It makes me so sad to hear about this happening. Frankly, it’s disgusting.
If something shocking and very dramatic happened and I was unable to finish your project, I would either refund what you had paid or with your permission, introduce you to other developers I trusted until we found you a good fit.
Nothing like this has ever happened on my watch before, and I never expect it to.
Do you work on site speed?
The code of your theme is always built with speed in mind, and will be as lean and fast as possible.
With that said, there is SO MUCH that goes into site speed beyond your theme. I am well experienced in speeding up sites, and will be happy to advise on all the things you can do on your end to speed it up. I can help implement too, but since that’s beyond the scope of the new blog design, the speed-specific work would be at my hourly rate.
Will there be any hidden fees?
Nope! Nothing hidden, that’s just rude.
There may be premium plugins I recommend that are not free, but you will not be required to purchase them unless we agree to it before we begin the project.
There is also a financial agreement in our contract that applies to both of us if either one were to be late in keeping up with our agreed upon schedule.
What is your refund policy?
50% of our total is due to secure your spot in my calendar and is a non-refundable deposit.
Once the rest is paid, it is also non-refundable, just like the time I spent creating your new design. 🙂
Your new website really is an investment in your business. It will give a boost to every effort you put in to grow your blog, and if taken advantage of, will lead to you making more money.
I NEVER want to pressure you or make you feel like you have to decide quickly. PLEASE take your time on this decision if you need to. I will answer any questions you have before committing.
Will you be available for ongoing support?
I never want to leave you without help. If time allows, I can be there to help with changes or various techy things at my hourly rate.
Will there be a contract?
Yes. I care about protecting BOTH of us. We both sign it so you can be confident that I will do what I promise (and legally entitled to it).
Are the themes really custom?
100% yes. I build my own themes from the ground up, on top of the Genesis Framework.
I never build on someone else’s themes or using a drag and drop editor–that’s not real or responsible development.
The only way I can ensure that your blog is the highest quality is to build it.
Will it look good on mobile?
My themes are coded mobile-first. Which is literal. The code for mobile is actually written first. Since around 60% + of traffic is on mobile devices, and a mobile site is simpler, coding mobile-first lets your site load faster and easier.
But don’t worry, desktop is still VERY important, and will look just as good.
Let’s get started:
Fill out the this form and then you’ll immediately get a questionnaire in your inbox that will help us get clear on how I can help. I’ll be in touch shortly after that goes out to schedule a call to chat about your project.
