Super easy blog tutorials to customize your blogger blog

If you've been here for any length of time, you know I play around with the blog a lot and frequently mess up the whole thing and spend forever trying to get it right.  (Everyone needs a hobby, eh?)

While I know lots of people put up tutorials, most are either way too technologically advanced for what I want to do or don't work or make me lose things or...  you get the idea.

After much trial and error, once I have them figured out so that any moron (meaning me, not you) can do it, I'll post the links here so you can customize your blog to your liking and not be stuck either paying someone or using the templates as written.

You are more than welcome to comment and question, but please realize everything I've learned has come at great cost (headache and time wise) and I am not in any danger of being hired on by geeksquad or hacks r us. ;)

One caveat-   always, always, always back up your work.  It's fairly easy- log into blogger, click design on the blog you want to change (if you have or are a team member of more than one), click edit html and then either download full template (and save it somewhere you can find it again) or even easier imo, click the expand widget templates box, copy and paste it into word, notepad, whatever you use to create documents and minimize it until you make sure it works and you didn't royally screw things up.

I hope these mini-tutorials are useful to you-  they are extremely basic and user-friendly so if you are into coding and such you probably aren't going to get anything out of them.  If, however, you're like me and would rather have the shortcuts to what really works, then these will be right up your alley.









If you find these easy tutorials useful, feel free to spread the word, we'd really appreciate it.  Please don't steal though, we work really hard learning the stuff and a link back would be appreciated.  Knowing we helped someone avoid the headaches and hassles really brightens our day.  :-)
