I know many of you have ( hopefully* ) heard about the lovely blog Pugly Pixel … but just in case you haven’t, I knew I needed to share it all with you! Katrina is a web design enthusiast. She shares tutorials, resources, and SO much more. With that said – this is a definite must bookmark blog for anyone who doesn’t necessarily have a design background, but wants their blog to look great & professional. Heck, even with a design degree – I still stop by fairly often as there is so much inspiration to be found, too.

The best part?? Katrina has a Blog Bling Kit where you can purchase various photoshop goodies ( templates, brushes, etc. ) at a very affordable price. It’s an extremely easy way to boost your online presence in the right direction. Seriously though, please do check it out. I promise it’s worth it.

  2. Sandi says:

    She has a WONDERFUL site! Her tutorials have helped me muddle through more than once :)

  3. Kelley says:

    oh! I love Katrina! I buy in every month for the $5 membership and I have used her tutorials to learn my way through a little CSS!

  4. Chloe Moon says:

    I could use a little extra help! I’ll check her out! =) Thanks!

    I definitely need this help, this is incredible! Unfortunately I didn’t get to go to school for design and/or coding and am self taught. I have also been using my personal blog as a little space to practice. Right now it’s a mess but I’m slowing, very slowly, figuring things out and LOVE to find new sites that share some information and tips.

    Thank you so much for sharing!

  11. What a great resource! Thanks so much for sharing. I’m working on my new self-hosted blog now and have NO design background; I’m a nurse by profession. I need all the help I can get!

  12. Courtney says:

    I LOVE Katrina’s work and how she actually shares it with the world instead of keeping it all in. Her tutorials have really aided my blogging experience since June and I wish there were more blogs like hers out there.

    Pugly Pixels tutorials were very important for me during the designing process of my blog. Katrina literally helped me very much. I’d absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants to give a try with a self-blog-design.

  17. Jackie says:

    Has Katrina erased herself from the internet? I’m trying to find her to reference her site, and everything links to an empty page… I used to be a big fan of her tutorials. What happened??

  18. Alana says:

    Ditto– I’ve been hunting for any mention of Pugly Pixel and cannot find it anywhere. Dying to access the tutorials– where are they located now/ what happened??

  19. Jackie says:

    I never found out! I’m so bummed…

  20. MJ says:

    Also looking for Pugly pixel blog…I learned so much of my PS foundation from her. I was trying to send a friend to the blog but couldn’t find it!

  21. Hanna says:

    her website is no longer available :)

  22. An FYI – I spoke very briefly with Katrina and she is doing well. Not sure what happened with Pugly Pixels, but she is very much alive and well.
