Customising My Blog

The weekend is here and there is only so many hours in the day.

So since my last blog, my little man recovered from quite a nasty case of stomach flu and we slid back into the hectic life of work and school. I am so thankful that we have one more week to go before we have Half Term which means for me that I can spend more time on here and update things on my other social media accounts.

I wanted to summarise how easy/complex (depending on how much coffee and lack of sleep one’s had) it is to update one’s blog background. Don James from “Blogger Tips Pro” has a blogger’s tutorial on customising your background and the process was really nice and easy to follow.

One thing to remember though. If you have made your own background – like I did – in a graphic editing software like Adobe Fireworks, then you will need to export the file in a web friendly format. Most user screens on their computers can be as big as 1920 by 1080 pixels and so if you try to upload a file which is not exported to a .jpeg  file format then Blogger will reject it as being too big.

So overall I’m hoping that my house style is not too intrusive to the feel of the overall blog.

Hope you enjoy the new look.
