Welcome to MYAH's new look! What do you think?
I love Blogger. It's easy to use, fun to tweak without screwing up too badly, and, of course, it's free (which dovetails nicely with the "screwing up" part).
Ever since I started blogging, I wanted to be able to tweak my blog to my liking, to personalize it, y'know? Or, as my little friend, Emmett, might say, "To make it POP!" So I'd mess with the code a little here and there--really, just rearranging things and changing colours, and stuff like that. Nothing I did, though, made it happen for me.
A few days ago (for the second time), I put in a search for 3-column templates for Blogger. The same search I'd done a few days prior, without the word "Blogger", got me a bunch of stuff for other blogging platforms. This time, though, I struck gold in the form of Random Bytes. Pam Blackstone, the owner, has a ton of information available, and detailed tutorials, for making your Blogger blog POP.
Some of it can be tricky--ok, a lot of it can be tricky, if you're not too savvy with the HTML and the CSS (no it's not a TV show) code-magic. But if you feel like gettin' down and dirty with your blog-code, Random Bytes is a great place to start.
