Learning as we go...

Looky, looky... I figured out how to change the background of my Blog! Now I can decorate for different seasons... or moods ;)

I've also figured out how to change the width of my columns,
and the overall width of my journal. I didn't like how narrow it
was before. This seems more balanced.

Update: Notice the change of colors? Looks much nicer with my background, don't you think? Once you know what you are looking for, the templates aren't that bad to revamp... Maybe I'll try one from scratch eventually ;p

oh, aren't you tricky! I played with mine today to - my intentions were to actually get my links up today, but that didn't happen. Oh well, there's always tomorrow. I like the new look - let me know when you start giving HTML classes

Very nice, JJ! Don't forget to stop by my journal and visit once in a while. Haven't seen too many of you guys around lately. I know it's been Thanksgiving, and maybe that's why, but, at any rate, don't be a stranger! :)

Hi,

I wanted to let you know I posted the great tutorial you sent me. For whatever reasons I didn't get that until today? What's up with AOL mail?

Thanks!

That looks wonderful! I'm jealous. I've been fussing with these things for almost a year and a half, and I never got nearly as far as you have here. Way to go!

I love the bubbles!

Bet you're too young to remember Lawrence Welk and his bubbles and accordians and those polka dancing hokeys!

I loved when those bubbles came up at the very end of his hokey show!

You really are a genius, girl. I'm still futzing around with trying to add pictures to the middle of my document. When I've pulled all of my hair out,(not that there's very much left), I'll come begging for your help...

Real soon...hint...hint....

Celeste said...

Hey you! I finally have a good working list of where so many have moved to. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. ;) C.

Jod{i} said...

I have a snowing background if you'd like! But I like this one alot!

Celeste said...

I like this. How did you do it? I have lots of backgrounds I would like to try.

Vivian said...

I love what you've done......I agree the default was much too narrow....that's something I don't like about my journal right now. I'll have to spend some time expanding the little HTML knowledge I have :) Your journal is beautiful. Thanks for all of the things you've been sharing!
