Upgraded My Blog

Mum & I have been experimenting with our blogs. We discovered a cool website called "Tips for New Bloggers" which is right up our alley coz we're new bloggers! We initially tried it out earlier on by adding the "Recent Comments" page element to enable us to quickly glance at our friends' comments on our posts.

We then decided to upgrade to 3 columns so that we could have more flexibiliy with adding page elements. Mum upgraded her blog "Life is A Journey. Enjoy It" last Friday. After her success, she decided to try it on mine too. It took us a lot longer as we had some problems with the margins on my template. We finally figured it out today. All this HTML business is foreign jargon to us. But, I must say that "Tips for New Bloggers" website made it pretty easy for novices to make changes to our blogs.

I also changed my title header. Dad took this picture of me during our walk at the hill. Still testing out the background. Haven't quite decided if I should maintain my previous background ocre colour. Work-in-progress still...

Hi, this looks great! I love the three columns. Maybe I'll give that a try, too -- the white background is very crisp. Your new PHOTO rocks! You look like such a happy dog.

Kess & Her Mama said...

Hi Booker, Give it a go. It isn't that difficult.

Hi, Kess!
You and your mom are doing a great job with your blog! I like it a lot! My mom is afraid to change a thing of my blog because she thinks she will screw it up!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Kess and Kess's mama
Thanks for visiting.
You lived in Adelaide??
How did you like it?
How does it compare to Malaysia?

I like the new look of the blog.
We are probably going to change ours too.
But things here are too unstable right now to focus on that.

Thanks for visiting.

Kess!

Slurp!

Wow...real nice, I mean the new look of you and thw template. I love this. I am now tempted to change but I am too poor at all this html thingy...hope yr mum will give me some lessons when I screw up.

Kess & Her Mama said...

Thanks Lorenza. Tell yr mum don't worry about screwing things up. There is a function in the edit HTML page where you can download your existing template. So, if you do screw it up, just upload your old template.

Kess & Her Mama said...

Hi E and Fei, Good to hear from you. Mum & dad studied in Adelaide for a few years (that's where they met). They really enjoyed their time there. Hope things stabilise for you soon.

Kess & Her Mama said...

Hi Mr-T (there was a show eons ago called the A team with Mr T in it), What an excellent recommendation. If there was a scent invention out there, it would be very popular among the dog blogs!

Kess & Her Mama said...

Thks Thor. Dad took a long while to modify the picture so it can go onto my header. Thanks dad!

Kess & Her Mama said...

Happy, yeah, ask LS to give the 3-column blog a go.

Kess & Her Mama said...

Sweet Jasmine, Mum says she's not a pro either, but she's more than willing to help out. Besides, the website is really useful. Try it.

Hi Kess, I think I really need that link. Have you seen my blog? I dont even know how to find a suitable picture for the header. sigh!
Can give some idea?

Kess & Her Mama said...

Hi Molly, Hope the link helps you with redesigning your blog. Since your blog is called home sweet home, maybe you can put in a picture of a house.

molly said...

Hi Kess,
Thanks for your advice. The problem is, I dont know where to find a picture big enough for my header.

Kess & Her Mama said...

Hi Molly, You could either do a google search for an image or take a picture on a digital camera.

Thanks for signing my guest book.
