The blogging journey has ignited a love for coding in me.
I’m amazed how by just changing a tiny bit of code we can change the complete look of our blog.
Take for example if we want to change our blog background from white to black.
Find the code for the background (in your stylesheet)*, change it from #ffffff (white) to #000000 (black) and the background of our blog will change. Use an HTML color chart or color scheme website and the possibilities are endless.
Now that The Blog Boutique has had a face lift, complete with a slider to showcase some of the headers I’ve created, it’s time for the second drawing for four free advertising spots (see “Blogger’s Showcase” in the sidebar).
The rules are simple:
1) Visit The Blog Boutique and leave me a comment there. I currently have 13 14 posts (containing over 120 blog header backgrounds which are free to download)
2) Come back to here and leave me a comment and tell me if you want “in”.
It’s that simple. Two comments.
The drawing will end on Tuesday, May 11 at 11:00 p.m. PST (Pacific Standard Time). The four winners will be announced in my Wednesday post.
The prize is thirty days of free advertising of your blog, ebook, or services on The Blog Boutique. You can either furnish me with a 125×125 ad or I will create what I call an ADvatar, for you for free.
Pretty simple, hey?
Speaking of coding, how much are you doing on your blog?
*Some blog themes use an image as a background. If that’s the case for your blog, changing the background will require additional tweaking. If you plan to make changes to the coding of your blog, be sure to back up your files first. As much as some of the coding can be easy, deleting and/or changing the wrong lines of coding can cause your blog to crash. (take it from me, I’ve done it). Proceed with caution and only if you feel comfortable doing so.
Note: This drawing is for bloggers. If your comment links to a site which contains offensive material or is a product sales site only, your entry will be disqualified.
