At last I have a blog design that reflects who I am! Thanks to the family and friends who helped me purchase the new SLR camera, and to Tara Frey’s Book Blogging for Bliss, I have been experimenting with photography and PhotoShop to up my design skills.
This summer, as I have been teaching an online Web 2.0 course (with blogging at its core) I have also spent some time trying to improve my own blogging skills. Motivation is so key when you are going beyond the basics, but I am here to say that it is worth the effort (and that includes discovering that I misspelled the title of one of my blog headers after I had carefully finalized it in PhotoShop!). I have so much more to learn, but I feel satisfied and ready to walk anyone through the process of personalizing their own blogs.
Of course, if you have more resources or ideas to share with me about blog design, please put then forward!
