Template Tampering
I'm loving messing around with the template on here. I've figured out how to make my own banners and change the background. I know there are a lot of people that don't like to mess with the template, but I'm having a ball! I still have a lot to learn... but it's fun. So, when I change things around, tell me what you think! I love to hear it... even if it's bad. I want to know. For example - I don't like my template right now. But, I think I'll leave it up till school starts... unless I can find something that I like better for "Back to School". Till then, it's this one. I really like the next header I have planned... so, do you mess around with your template? Or have you got it exactly the way you like it? Why mess with perfection? ;)

Mine is not the way I would like, but I don't know how to do much with it. Hopefully one day I'll figure it out and be happy with how it looks.

I mess with it, but I'm only in blogger 1st grade.
You *could* share information with us, you know.
Like how you got that fancy banner.;)

I looove changing my template, but like Carrot, I only know the basics.

Teach us, oh wise one!

OH NO!! Y'all have misunderstood! I am no template wizard... just messin around till I like it!

Carrot - I make my banners in a photo program that I have. There are a lot of websites that have free digital scrapbooking papers. I download the papers and then use them to create my banner. Then I upload the papers that I want for my background to a photobucket account. Then change the html - but I think you already know how to do that! :)

kimberly - I always love your templates... do you do them yourself? If so, you know TONS more than I do! I just go in and adjust numbers and look at the HTML for different skins and then I try inserting it in my blog to see what happens. That's the nice thing about blogger... when you mess with the HTML it has a "preview" button. You don't have to save the changes till it's just right!

I wish I was more motivated to make mine cute. It really needs help. I do love this template- even if you don't.

I don't know nothing about nothing....except how to make friends with really nice blog people like Omar Phillips who customized my blog for me for free.

Personally, I like Annie's blog template right now. The jewel toned paisley design is just perfect for Fall. I've always loved Paisley. But not enough to name a kid that. What is up with all the people naming their child Paisley? What's next? Plaid? Argyle? Ditsy?

Tharker said...

I think it's a cute template too. I'll be excited to see what the new header is too!

Melissa said...

heather - it's another creative outlet for me. I like desiging and messing around with the banners. :)

jean knee - I'm just starting to learn. It's been a bit of a struggle, but things are starting to fit together...

kathleen - I guess I'm just not content! I love to see the changes in my template :)

diana - I wish I knew more coding too. I usually just go and mess around with things till I find something I like...

elastic - it must be good to have such talented friends :)
I too love the paisley look. But not enough to name a child after it. Actually, one of my banners that will probably debut this fall has some paisley in it...

tharker - I like to keep you guys on your toes... so I have to change things up every so often ;)

I love this one too! I haven't been motivated to change mine around, or maybe I just don't have enough time!!! Until October that is.......
