Updating the Blog
I've been working on a few small tweaks to the blog the last few days. I didn't make any major changes, but I'd been using a very old template, and I couldn't get a few of the features that Blogger is finally offering (like the ability to reply to comments) to work.
So I decided to update my template, but then I had to customize it.
I love designing things in Photoshop, but honestly it's all trial and error for me. I'm completely self taught so I feel like I often do things the loooong way.
But I also like designing my site on my own because then it's just what I want it to be. And if I want to change something I can do it very quickly and easily.
I've used a lot of the tutorials at Pugly Pixel and The Coffee Shop Blog.
But then I actually have to make the changes to the CSS and the HTML in the template and then it's really trial and error.
I know next to nothing about it and so I end up making a change - preview - nope, didn't work - try it someplace else.
See? I'm slooooow.
I recently looked into a few books on CSS, but didn't ever decide on anything. Any recommendations? Do you have any favorite web design blogs to share with me? :)
