- i need to design something -

NOW!

I need to design something NOW before I end up changing my blog lay out again. Maybe I will just work on some random thing, or my button since it is ugly.

I have a problem, I know, yes, I did just change my background back to white.

I was just reminded by Jennifer from The Big Burd that I had wanted to help other bloggers design stuff for their blog in my spare time. Not sure how that would work out for me, I am not a professional (obviously) but I can get pretty creative!

UPDATE for ERICA J.

Here are the codes I could not post in the comment box

<a href="YOUR LINK"><img src="YOUR IMAGE CODE"></a>

if you don't need a link, just an image
just use the last part <img src="">

Let me know if you need more help!

    1. I actually wouldn't really mind helping you out with that.

      I have considered helping other bloggers before, I just thought it would be kind of hard to figure out what someone likes and not just how I would like to see things lol.

      I wonder how if that would work out for me, I am not professional, I would say I am pretty amateur though.

  14. hey girl! so happy to find your blog! you seem like such an awesome person and + your blog is gorgeous! do you know anything about html? I am trying to make my pictures in the sidebar closer together, which i guess its "paddings and margins" if you wanna get technical. i see you have your "places to see" pictures stcked very nicely on top of one another. i have tried countless tutorials and tricks and cannot figure it out. css doesn't do anything at all either. also, how did you get your tabs to link up to the label of choice? i can't do that either. if i wanna add something to a certain page, I have to go do it there as opposed to write a new blog post. any help would be greatly appreciated. especially on the first topic i mentioned.
    all the best,
    Erica

    1. Hi Erica!

      Thanks for the lovely compliments!

      I know a few things about HTML and learning more about CSS.

      Starting with your first question: f you have all your buttons (about me, contact, etc) in different gadgets on your sidebar, it will display them far apart. Just add one Gadget or break them into sections, one before your Followers Gadget and another after that since they can't be paired together. Right now from the looks of it, in your layout you probably have a gadget for each button? you will need to make one HTML/TEXT gadget and add all the images you want grouped together into one gadget. For that you will need to upload your photos to a host (like photobucket) and use the html code

      (for this I have updated this post because it will not let me post the code in the comment box, check the bottom of the post for the code)

      I hope that wasn't too confusing.

      For the labels, I have made a post about it

      The places to see photos is using a Javascript code but it needs a host in order to do it, it's not as simple as a code :/
