Success!

I've finally managed to spice up my blog a little. For many people, this is a simple matter of tweaking some HTML and CSS and then BAM!-- finished. But I am an idiot, so it has taken me several days to actually do something that should actually take minutes.

Oh, well. However long it's taken me, there are some resources that were integral to my great success. For those who are computer-illiterate, use these:

Publishing a Blog with Blogger, by Elizabeth Castro.

BlogU-- a huge help.

There is still much to do on this blog, but this is a start! :)

  1. Good luck with your updating. I could never get the hang of all that stuff myself.

  3. Kate, thanks for the referral to my blog. I am glad that you find it helpful. Is there anything else you would like to change on your blog that I could write a tutorial post on?

    BTW, If you want to get rid of that little border around the top 3 sides of your title, find this in your template:

    #description {
    margin:0 5px 5px;
    padding:0 20px 20px;
    border:1px solid #222;
    border-width:0 1px 1px;
    font:78%/1.4em "Trebuchet MS",Trebuchet,Arial,Verdana,Sans-serif;
    text-transform:uppercase;
    letter-spacing:.2em;
    color:#777;
    }

    Then delete this part:
    border:1px solid #222;

    Maybe I better add that part to my blog. I thought I covered it, but I missed that!

    peace...

  6. The last time I tried updating my blog on my own, I made it completely unreadable... Had to enlist some help! Congrats on doing everything by yourself! :))

  7. Irina--

    If I hadn't had resources, I would never had made it. It would have taken me years: deleting one thing, previewing it, clearing edits, deleting another thing... and so on. My attention span is WAY too short for that sort of thing.

    Thanks for commenting!
