Well I’m pretty happy with the blog re-design and pretty proud that I did it myself. There are a few minor tweaks I would like to do still, but nothing major. There are some super awesome people out there who have written amazing tutorials that helped me so much in re-designing my blog. There is NO WAY I would have been able to do any of this without them. I do not speak html code. As promised, here are the tutorials I used to help me redesign my blog:
custom post title and date font – tutorial found here
signature at the end of post – tutorial found here
As for the header and blog button – I have photoshop and I created them in there. For the header, I used a 10×20 template and then resized it for my blog. It was initially much bigger and beautiful, but people with smaller monitors had to scroll to view it so I decreased it’s size. I don’t really know what I am doing, so a lot of it was trial and error. The blog button, which I’m still not thrilled about, was created in photoshop using clipart I had. I sized it 150×150.
That’s it I think. I hope someone else can find these tutorials useful. They really are fantastic and helped me achieve a much nicer looking blog (if I do say so myself)!
