Just Babbling to Myself

The Graphics Fairy Free imageMy next task on my Blog-to-do-list is to figure out how to get a link bar up with links to various parts of my blog! I also need to make a few of those parts/posts yet! I know it’s probably extremely simple to do, but I always seem to do things the HARD way. At least I do until I figure out something better. I also need to make some images to use as buttons and see if I can get them to look just right.

Eventually I will have to work on my actual blog layout. Yes, I know that on a large monitor the edge of my pretty brown border is floating there in space with a lovely green background. You see, the problem is that I have an old 2004 regular sized monitor with resolution set at 1152 px by 864 px, My eyes can’t take anything smaller on this screen! So, until I get with the program and purchase a nice new flat screen monitor like my mom has I am stuck going back and forth between our houses to see what my blog will look like on hers!

Starting a Running To-Do list now!

  1. Create link button images with Paint.net
  2. Figure out how to add link bar
  3. Fix blog background so that it looks good on all screen sizes
  4. Make disclosure & PR blog post so I can link to it from link bar
  5. Decide on weather or not I actually like my blog sidebars, do I want them on either side of main post or left where they are at?

    Thank you for the compliment! It’s all trial and error with me, I like to fiddle and tweak, obsessively, it’s a curse, lol.
