Blogging Secrets (Just for You)

 (I've got secrets too!)

So, as you all know, I recently did a big face lift to my blog- new header, three-column template, new sidebar tags, new button etc. Well, I went about it all on my own. Kind of. My friend Ashley helped me out some and gave me moral support, but I was determined to break through the HTML coding fog once and for all.

Now, I'm not a professional and I still don't know how to create my own background or anything like that, but I do know a few tricks of the trade. I'm certain that some of you out there would love to know how to fancy-up your blog on your own too, right? Well, here are some blogging secrets just for you!
