Categories are often a source of exasperation or confusion for bloggers. Especially if you’ve been blogging for a while with no clear plan on categories or if you’ve recently migrated from Blogger to Self-Hosted WordPress (high five on that by the way!). But fear not dear blogger, there are ways to whip your categories into shape. A good category structure can help your readers find what they are searching for
One year ago today was my first day as a full-time solopreneur. This is the photo I shared on my personal blog along with some cheesy beach/ocean inspiration one-liners. I am beyond thrilled to have reached this day with the lights (and cable) still on and my self-employed health insurance still in force. My first goal this year was to keep the bills paid. My second goal was to get
Your logo is the key to your brand. Your brand is the key to you site’s design and layout. They are all connected and part of your brand’s circle of life. I ask new clients several questions to gather information and inspiration for a logo design. Sometimes it can be tricky to get on the same page. I ask question like: What do you want your new logo to accomplish?
It’s almost time for back to school so let me just say that I love teachers! This week I launched my fifth custom design project for a teacher. I think I might have a thing for teachers. Teachers are great to work with because they are so creative, they love color and they are so organized! They have great photography and with each project I am thankful that there are
Thauna has been spectacular in every aspect. So organized, from start to finish. We really jived in how we approach projects, which thrilled me. I couldn't be happier with how my site turned out, or how quickly it came together. I'd highly recommend Thauna to anyone who asked!
The Bubble Dancer
I have been thinking about starting a blog for the last three years, and the task has always scared me. I am busy professional with no time, I certainly cannot dedicate days never mind weeks to the project. So I started looking for help. I bumped into Bellano Web Studio, and I was impressed right away by the clarity of the service offering. Thauna has been a saviour, she came up with my logo design (which blew me away), web site layout, fonts colour scheme and she created a terrific brand for my new project, all from a very meager set of instructions, almost a mind reader!No need to look any further for Web Design you have found the right partner.
What I Have Learned
I LOVE my new blog design! Thauna did an awesome job with the layout, design, navigation, and overall look and feel of the site. Every element fits perfectly creating a sense of balance with color and whitespace.Thauna was a pleasure to work with. She answered every question and worked in every element that I wanted. The back and forth conversation was a breeze. It’s like she knew just what I wanted and needed for my web site. Thauna moved my web site over from blogger, something I was so nervous to do myself. She made the process easy and took away the intimidation of it. She knows her stuff. Thauna has a wonderful knowledge base of Wordpress, plugins and design.All in all, it was an awesome experience working with her and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
I hired Thauna to redesign Cook Smarts' blog, which meant she had the headache of dealing with some of my legacy code for the rest of the site. Thauna was so patient throughout the process and made our blog look so much better and also took the time to make sure the rest of our webpages still looked like before. She was such a pleasure to work with and incredibly responsive to my concerns. I highly recommend working with her!
Working with Thauna is a dream! She took my vision and made it better. She is extremely creative and knowledgeable about Wordpress, features, and plugins. She pulled me through my site design, and made it fun. My site was delivered on time and on budget. I would jump at the chance to work with her again. She's a gem!
For years, my website was a nightmare. Thanks to Bellano, now it's a dream!
I worked with Thauna on a complete redesign of my site. Not only was it painless, it was fun. Imagine that!
If you want a designer who quickly responds to questions (and I asked a lot of questions!), creates sites that are beautiful, and sticks to a deadline, Bellano is for you!
A Spoonful of Sugar
Our blog was in desperate need of makeover. Thauna from Bellano Web Studio has listened to our ideas and designed us a wonderful new site which is modern, easy to navigate, and showcases our crafts and recipes. She handled the Blogger to WordPress transfer, designed our new logo, added lots of cool features, and kept us regularly updated and involved with the process. Thauna was a joy to work with and has a great attention to detail. If you are wanting to invest in a quality web design, we wholeheartedly recommend Thauna.

Working with Thauna at Bellano Web Studio was a dream--and I don't say that lightly. She is easy to work with, and was so responsive to my questions, needs, and ideas. I am amazed at how effortless this process seemed to be--which is all due to Thauna's skill, professionalism, and creativity. I am thrilled with my website redesign and I get compliments on it all the time. I highly recommend working with her!
Red Barn & Respro
Thauna did an absolutely wonderful job on two custom-designed sites for me, one for a food safety consultancy company and the other for a book publisher's blog. The audiences for the sites are vastly different, and she achieved a design for each one that works for its market. Her creativity and professionalism are top-notch, and she's lightning fast with answering questions and completing projects. I was very relieved to have her help with SEO and getting site maps submitted to Google too, which made all the difference in getting the sites to show up in Google search results. Bottom line: Thauna rocks and I look forward to working with her on any new sites in the future! - redbarnblog.com and resprofsp.com
Thauna is a phenomenal designer/developer and it has been an immense pleasure to work with her. She is not only extremely responsive and gets stuff efficiently in such a timely manner but she is extremely patient, which is something important for me since I am very aware of my OCD tendencies. She delivered the website of my dreams and I am so thankful to God that I hired Thauna and I look forward to working with her on future websites. If you're looking for a designer who is creative, efficient, timely, patient and versatile, I highly recommend Thauna, you will not be disappointed.

Bellano was A++ to work with and handled the changeover to Wordpress completely! She did a phenomenal job and helped me during every step of the process. Highly recommend!!
The Iceberg Project
Before I worked with Thauna I had no idea how I wanted the site to look and function. After giving her some basic ideas and course-correcting along the way, she came up with a brilliant design for my site that's better than I could have ever imagined it.
Thauna is awesome! I've worked with her on 2 projects and in both cases the outcome was entirely different. This really shows what a versatile and creative designer she is. On the last project we worked on I was pretty demanding, I changed my business name and my logo twice and I was still not 100% sure about the direction I wanted to take with the website. Thauna stayed very patient during the process and helped me to put together a brand that I´m really happy and content with. I've made a lot of stupid investments trying to set up my business, but hiring Thauna was one of the best decisions I've made.
Thauna was simply a delight to work with. With very little input from me, she came up with the gorgeous, minimalist website I'd said I wanted. I highly recommend Thauna for her designer's eye and technical savvy. Creative, knowledgeable, responsive -- Thauna embodies every quality you hope to find in a web designer!
Good. Food. Stories.
Thank you a million times over for all your patience and detail-oriented work - as you now know, I'm such an OCD person, and you are a dream to collaborate with.
Thauna at Bellano Web Studio is the best. If you need someone who knows exactly what you want in a website or a blog- look no further. After trying other website design companies and wasting a lot of money I was very despondent about ever getting the blog I needed for my business. Luckily, I discovered Thauna. You can't believe what a relief it is to find someone who knows what they're doing- her expertise in web design is exemplary. Thauna knew exactly what I needed and did it immediately. I had spent twelve months with other design companies getting frustrated and then Thauna had the blog of my dreams up and running with an operating shop in a month! If you're trying to run a business- this is exactly what you need- speed and accuracy. I can't say enough about how brilliant Bellano Web Studio has been and what an asset to my business Thauna has been. Thank-you, Thauna!
Education to the Core
Thank you so much! You truly have been so amazing throughout this whole process. I just want to thank you so much for working so hard, and being so kind. I have had the best experience with you, and I am so happy with my blog. You are amazing, and I would recommend you to any of my friends.

Thauna is an amazing designer to work with. She was great at answering my many questions before starting and made me feel very comfortable. She was always available and responded promptly throughout the entire process. She had so many great ideas and came up with many elements I never would have thought of otherwise. She had a way of incorporating my ideas but making them better. She is very creative and helped me come up with a great logo when I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted. I loved that she threw in extras like Facebook and Twitter cover photos too. She also provided great support after the site was finished. I’m so happy with how the site turned out and would definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone else needing an amazing website.
