This week, Kim tells us to do all the little simple things on your blog.
I got around to doing some of the things I've been procrastinating on.
I made a header. It is not very good. I don't have any fancy-schmancy photo editing skills, but I wanted something with Gilmore Girls on it, since the blog's name is a line from the show! If I can get around to figuring out photoshop at school someday, I should make a pretty one. I just like how headers make the blog look less generic.
I added a hit counter and a list of followers (look at the bottom for that) as well as a link to easily subscribe to my blog. Now you don't have an excuse not to!
I also updated my About Me and added that to the blog's main page as well.
I wanted to have pictures of the challenges I am in on my sidebar, but the way blogger does it is stupid. There is such a big gap between the pictures. If any of you know how to make it look good, please share your wisdom with me!
Blogger also does not have a function where you can make a seperate page. I wanted one to display all of the books I have read so far this year instead of having them listed on the front page (like what Dewey had). I also wanted a page for the challenges I am in.
I'm toying with the idea of switching over to another blog hosting site. I am not far into this whole blogging thing, so it wouldn't be a huge adjustment. But, since I am starting out I do not have many loyal followers, so I wouldn't want to lose anyone because I changed!
I admit I did not do any research at all when I started this blog. I definitely would not have chosen blogger!
I just realized that my six month blogiversary is March 17, so I will have to think of something creative to do for that!
