New Year, New Look

What do you think?


  1. Very cute! TCBOTB has the cutest designs and backgrounds!

    Happy New Year!

    XOXO~ Renee

  2. Very nice... I have to go change mine now that Christmas is over for most folks

  3. It's awesome, RAnn! Someday I'll figure out how to do all that stuff, too. I bought a book, "Blogging for Dummies" but it hasn't helped much:) I guess that doesn't speak well about my intelligence level. Happy New Year!

  4. Thanks Mary. I spent a lot of time fooling with my blog today, but more was spent in deciding what to do than actually doing it. With the exception of the menu bar at the top, what you see here is easy to get. First, go to the blogger dashboard and reset your template to minima. Then click on cutest blog on the blog in the top corner of my blog. Once there, click on blogger backgrounds are peruse the site until you find one you like. Click on it, and follow the directions. Basically, you just copy some html and add it to your blog as a widget. That will give you a quick change, and the ability to change frequently without much trouble. I'm debating whether to keep changing regularly or find a look to stick with, kind of a "brand" if you would.

    I got the header (the part at the top with my blog name) from Cutest Blog on the Block too. They give directions for customizing it.

    As far as other stuff you want to do, just google it. Chances are someone has written how to do it. I have a test blog I play with and when I figure something out, then I put it here.

  5. RAnn,
    Thanks for the information! I'll have to practice on one of my blogs that I don't use much. I have one that I'm just getting ready, that would be a good one to fool with. Almost everything that I have learned to do has come from other bloggers. The book was useless:)
