Changes to my blogger template


I've been dreading setting up this blog for months (the reason I took so long to start it). I wanted to make my own template and buttons but had no idea how to. I finally took the plunge and started by looking up tutorials. I love google! You can practically find anything on trusty google. Through trial and error, I used what worked for me. I'm including links to the tutorials that I found most helpful.

Make your own background using photoshop with this easy tutorial.

How to turn your minima blogger template into 3 columns

How to add a custom search box

How to remove border lines behind header

How to make a button with a grab box so people can post your blog button on their blog.

My next step is to add a navigation bar. When I figure it out, I'll post the link.
