I have been blogging for a little while but my blog is basic as I can't quite work out how to do all the fancy pants things! I'd like to add some pictures across the top but no idea how, any ideas?!

If you want to see the basic version it's

Me too, some of these blogs look so pretty!
I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing to keep it simple. I like the text you've used, it gives a nice touch.
I think the blogger site could be a bit easier to use though, don't you?

Also is there option for people to comment? I think I have it on and no one comments but just want to check it's there! It's taken me since May to work out how to do a tab!! confused

Thanks peekyboo! I find it quite tricky to find out what to do! As you say some look so lovely!

I like your blog - don't worry if it is a bit plain.

It would look better if you would resize your picture so that it is slightly smaller - that way the reader doesn't have to scroll down so far to read your post.

Check out Geekalicious for tutorials - Nickie has some great ones and if there is anything that you are unsure of, you can ask her and she will try to help.

Thanks Mme, didn't realise that picture had saved there, thought I'd deleted it!! Couldn't resize it!

I'll take a look at Geekalicious, cheers for the info!

Hi happy, I am definitely not technical and have only just posted on here this week about starting a blog so I am way behind you! I just wanted to say that I really like your blog, it's really nice and bright and very clear to read. That might sound strange but I have some problems with my eyesight and can struggle to read text on certain colour backgrounds etc and yours is perfect.

Nickie is trying to include more WP tips - I must get around to writing some for her blush

Hey Clucky glad you found it good! I was worried the writing style might not be suitable but I liked it and you've just made up my mind to keep it! Happy blogging! It took me ages to set mine up but I'm really glad I did

Hi - I would like to make a logo for my blog - anyone got any advice on where to start? All I have is Paint on my comp, is there anywhere online you can design something? Was thinking of the name of my blog in a nice-ish font - what has everyone else done for theirs? Help or suggestions much appreciated!

Are you a member of MN Bloggers Network? You have forgotten your button if you are.

You can design a logo on Photoshop if you have it.

yes i think i signed up for MN bloggers network, please excuse my ignorance but is a button the same as a badge? how do i get one? don't have photoshop... assume Paint isn't going to look too professional!!
