Shop Small: Blogging Bits

We all like to get creative with our 'corners of the Internet' and there are plenty of small businesses to help you do that. Whether you want prints and props or logos and layouts, there are lots of talented makers ready to meet your needs and get your blog looking its best.

Melanie's shop is like a gift shop for bloggers! As well as offering some beautiful floral prints she has lots of stock photos on sale, including flat lays and blogger favourites such as succulents and cute notebooks. Some are themed by colour, which is a really good idea. I think the best way to make the most of your purchase is to use a stock photo to accompany every post in a certain series, to really tie them together.

Alice was totally the inspiration behind this post. She has a brand spanking new shop and very cleverly designed watercolour set to use in scrapbooking and blogging. If you haven't got a photo for a post but still want an eye catching picture, just download them and add some text.

Alice also has some gorgeous prints of vintage cameras that would look so effortlessly chic in any home or make a great blog prop.

I'm a total sucker for this sort of floral design, I love the colour palette and the flowers themselves are beautiful, as is the calligraphy. They make a very trendy and feminine logo, perfect for a wedding or home blog, and when Heidi has personalised it with your text you can use it for business cards or a blog header. She has tonnes of gorgeous designs available.

Ooh mama did we hit the mother lode here! This fab little shop offers cute blog planning printables in a range of designs, plus really smart media kits that are sure to impress, and even affordable e-book or magazine templates.  I especially like this blog post printable as it allows you to get your ideas down without missing any important extras such as keywords and links to include.

One quick search and you'll find hundreds of templates ready to dress your blog up. What particularly drew me to Jessica's shop was the ease of use. She offers free installation, a demo, and you can even customise the colours and fonts of your template with just a few clicks. They have been designed to make things look fantastic and respond quickly for both you and your viewers. There are social media buttons, share buttons, and comment logos including to keep your readers fully engaged.
