Assalam alaikum & Peace to all
As you may or may not have noticed I have been re-doing my blog format and as a result some of you have been asking me how I have done certain things...so here is a list of sites I've used to change the formats!
First I added a 'cute' background! Its from here http://www.thecutestblogontheblock.com/
actually most of my customization came from that site!
The there is the adding of the 3 columns
Read the instructions at the above site and then go to....
For the 3 column steps...I would recommend that you do it slowly and step by step.
(Like it says on the cutest blog.com I did not find the 'update' portion and it worked just fine)
Also make sure that you change the column widths...you can play around until everything fits nicely!
Also I made a 'fav icon' its the little 'flower' that appears in the link bar
Now this process looks really difficult but it doesn't have to be - as I found out!
I would recommend using a .png or (even better and easier) a .gif picture. If you want to create an .ico image there is a long process involved (I couldn't be bothered!) buy hey if you feel like it go for it! OR you can do this to any image you find
http://www.animatedfavicon.com/ go to that site and enter the location of your file and
click on 'create' fav icon you will see your picture on the bottom as a 'preview' and then click on
'get it now' - it will download a zip file which you will extract and save the .png file to your computer.
The next step is to save it to a site like 'photobucket' so that you can get the URL of the image and insert the 'code' into your blog template...again just follow the instructions carefully!
I forgot originally to add in the 'label cloud' link
Hope this all helps - have fun customizing!!
