Learning to Customize

Little by little I’m learning how to customize my little ol’ blog here.

Aside from the writing I’ve done, I’m getting some things done on the back-end. So far I’ve successfully:

  • Changed my theme from Word Press Classic to Atahualpa (loving it, by the way).
  • Installed some very helpful plug-ins.
  • Changed a bunch of settings within my theme to make it look and function a little more to my liking.
  • Completely re-did my categories.
  • Learned to use FTP (what a headache!). :O
  • Implemented some advertisement spots (not that I’ve made any money from them yet). 😉
  • Made a button to link to a website/forum that I love to pieces and spend FAR too much time on everyday.
  • I also played around with Picnik to make a simple header. I kinda like the cartoon faces, it’ll do for now until I get a really good family photo to use instead.

Go ahead and poke around for a bit. Let me know what you like or don’t like. Are there any features that I should start using? Any changes I should make? I’m open to constructive criticism.

    Next time we get together I need a tutorial on how to “better” my blog. I can’t quite figure it all out. I want to better organize my pages and make them easier to see.
    Ehh I’ll keep working on it. Sometime. ha ha

      Sure thing. I’ll show you whatever I can. And if I don’t know how to do something already, I’ll point you in the right direction or help you figure it out. 🙂
