blog tutorials

Hey guys!

I wanted to share a few tutorials
that helped me a ton with my new blog design.
{thanks for all your sweet comments!}

So, you all know Kevin & Amanda, right?
Of course you do!
They have all those amazing and FREE fonts!
I came across a blog post they had a while back
for a tutorial on how to design your own blog layout.
 {click on the pic to go to the tutorial}

They show you how to create a background in
photoshop and then install it.
It's really good.
Although, I have to read each step of the directions
a million times to get it right, but that's just me!

I had always wondered how bloggers got their
fancy nav bars at the top.
You can create different "pages" for your blog and with
blogger template designer, you can have a basic looking
nav bar.
I wanted something prettier and I came across this video.
It was soooooo easy!
Once you figure out what pages you want for your blog,
what clipart you want to use, etc...
But, you do need a photo editing program and have
to create your nav bar first, then they show you
how to install it.
They have several other videos that look interesting
too!

 I hope these help you create/update your blog look!

  2. Thanks! I have also been using Kevin & Amanda's blog tutorial, however for some reason I cannot get the blog design I made to fit. It is always small when I look at the preview.
