I'd been thinking about giving my blog a new look, and yesterday Melissa suggested I visit The Cutest Blog on the Block. Score!
Now part of me is still unsure about something so fancy. Though I really like this background a lot, I don't want something that will be hard to read or too busy to the eye, for I don't wish to turn readers away. But I did want to spruce things up, and this certainly did it!
If you want to change things up on your blog as well, just visit the link above. You'll see a left-hand column on the site, and all you need to do is click on "free backgrounds." You can sift through them until you find one you like, then follow the directions to apply it to your own blog.
You first have choose the Minima template from Blogger, so you're in essence starting with a blank canvas. Then, still from Blogger, you "add a gadget" from the Edit Layout screen (accessed through your dashboard), select that you're adding an html code, and copy your Cutest Blog template code into the box. Boom! A new look! You may also have to access "fonts and colors" from the layout screen in Blogger, to make all your text coordinate. (Thanks to Angie for telling me that.) It's super easy to navigate.
So let me know what you think of my new look, and tell me if you're going to get one, too!
