I’ve started to spend a little time customising my blog today. Though I’ve only had my blog a few days anyway, this is also the first opportunity I’ve had for a few hours in the house by myself, for exactly two weeks! Owing to either my partner’s days off, or my eldest child and then my youngest child being off school ill, I’ve not had any completely free time since 11th January.
So having laid in bed till 10am, had tea with my mum till 11am, I then decided to catch up on all the blog posts that I was too tired to read last night (and of course not forgetting my morning dose of Farmville 2 – please don’t judge me lol). After I was done with all that, I set about customising my layout a little, partly because of some things I seen or read, but also because its something I’ve been meaning to do.
As you will see, I now have a pretty new title banner at the top of my blog. I also have a button (thanks to The Closet Intellectual) and have added buttons to the four people I currently follow. I’m interested in
doing some more customisation too, but I think that will have to wait until I have more time to browse and fiddle (I’ve only just had breakfast and I’m still not dressed yet, my partner will be home from work in an hour, I have to take a car for a test drive, then finally pick the kids up in just over two hours time). Of course if anyone can help point me in the direction to either a blog that helps you fiddle, or even just tell me yourselves, that would be great. I’m interested in a nice layout though nothing on blogger grabs me – but more specifically how to set my own background wallpaper I guess. I’d also be interested to know how you can get this button at the end of each post (I’m wanting the multiple share options that the orange button provides!).
I think those are the main things for now, though I imagine the more I fiddle, the more I’ll want to fiddle. Anyway I better shift my ass and go do something useful or else today is going to fly by so fast. I have dinner to cook and a Games Night to host this evening, so its unlikely I’ll have any more spare time today.
