It's no secret that a blog that is easy on the eyes will be more successful
When I first started blogging, I was overwhelmed with the whole html thing.
[Ha- who am I kidding? I still am!]
At first I turned to cutest blog on the block
[btw- nothing wrong with that! They have some adorable designs!]
But I wanted something that was more personal and unique.
Not being in a place to afford a professional blog design, I decided to do it myself.
Armed with nothing but my whits and an internet search engine,
It's taken a lot of time and effort to figure out how to conquer the thing,
A couple of new readers have asked for some help,
I'll be taking you through step-by-step, and I've created another blog that I will use pictures of here to demonstrate what I'm doing each post.
Here's how it looks now in it's completely unedited state:
Together we'll watch it evolve over the next several posts.
I've already written up several of the posts, so here is the [tentative] schedule:
Resizing Your Blog - 9/1 7:00 AM EST
Designing a Header - 9/2 7:00 AM EST
Borders - 9/3 5:00 PM EST

A few [important] notes:
1. A lot of my "know-how" has come from other sources, and I will do my best to credit them as we go along.
2. The only computer class I've ever taken was on using Microsoft Office, so if my way of doing something is ridiculous, please be merciful. I am merely sharing my means to an end. :]
3. If there are any specific issues you would like addressed, feel free to send me an email! I will do my best to answer your question if I can.
I've been tweeking these posts for over a week now, and I am so excited to share them with you!
I'll start posting my blog makeover tutorials tomorrow morning!
