In order to put off the actual writing of the blog or, even worse, the doing of drawings I have spent many a long hour playing with its settings. It is an endlessly fascinating activity. I had to get help of course and the main problem with my increasing age it that my brain seems incapable of retaining the information so having "learnt"how to do it I instantly forget. I had to constantly go back to re read the ins and outs of customising html etc and I want to give this site a mention, without which I would never have got started . "Tips for New Bloggers" is great ....http://tips-for-new-bloggers.blogspot.com/
I am designing a new header too ..eventually.
