Day 10 - Blogging tricks!

After being away all weekend my poor little blog (and all attempts at creativity) have been pretty much abandoned so I have no new creation to blog about tonight. However, I refuse to be beaten or considered a challenge cheater. It's called "Being Inspired" right? So today's post is about some blogging tricks that are inspiring me! (And a weekend of eating, drinking and catching up with friends is pretty inspiring too.)

I've been learning on the job a lot here and my latest discovery is tabs! You may have noticed a new little one explaining my 30 day challenge? Well I'm planning on adding a few more to make this blog a bit easier to navigate.

I've also been playing around with templates and backgrounds. So if you notice the blog going a bit schizophrenic over the next few days that's just me trying out a few new looks! I'm loving this site: The Cutest Blog on the Block.

Oh and I've realised how to put in hyperlinks instead of just copying and pasting the link... pretty easy one but I just hadn't tried it out before!

I've also discovered how to create picture links - as in my new "recipes" and "sewing projects" tabs. :) Very easy to do too, I found a good explanation here.

You may have noticed my new favicon? The little light bulb? Well hopefully that's gonna be incorporated into a new logo I'm working on. Watch this space...

One of the funnest (it's a word...) things I've been doing is playing around a bit more with the html code. At this stage that just means I'm copying and pasting things other people have blogged about but I'm learning lots! Like how to add a cool signature to the end of my posts using My Live Signature. :)

And I've wasted spent lots of time exploring sites like Spice Up Your Blog and finding lots more things I can't wait to try out!! :)

Things I've learnt:
- Ummm... all of the above?! Did you even read this post? :)
