The Blog's Been Changed

Just so I can draw your attention to it:

Check out my blog.


I changed it.


It took a long time because I had to teach myself how to do everything as I went along.

Skills I learned:
● How to format the background images for the blog, the body and the header. And how to add edges to those images.
● Navigation bar - how to make the images and add the links and how to stick it in the header.
● How to match colours
● all the html
● a bunch of other stuff I can't bring to mind right now.


And that's all... I just wanted to point it out.

Let me know what you think... but be gentle I think I'm likely to be rather touchy about it. I'll try to be open to criticism, though.

Okay then.

Bye!

Looks great! I'm so impressed you figured out how to do it all yourself!

When will you be passing on your knowledge to your blogger friends? I don't know how to do any of that stuff, except for maybe matching colors. But, I'm not positive about that.

Looks very housewifey in a reluctant sort of way...in other words, terrific.

I'm impressed! I like 'techi' stuff, but have no desire (yet) to figure out all the html coding.

It looks great!

Awesome. I especially love the design on the sides. Very nice! Good jog!

Nice! I am impressed as all get out that you have done it all yourself, too.
And I like the little housewife in the url line as well. Way cool.

It does look super. I wish I knew how to do that nav bar.

Lisa@BlessedwithGrace said...

Good job. I am impressed you taught yourself all that stuff. I still haven't figured out the navigation bar. I would love that!

awsomeness! doesn't it feel good to accomplish something that has nothing to do with sock matching...

Sass E-mum said...

I love it. I always liked the previous image - but it was, shall we say, a little bit large... ;)

I'm a little late to the party, but the new digs look fantastic! Great work! Isn't it fun learning how to do this stuff by yourself? It may take longer, but the feeling of accomplishment at the end is well worth it. :)
