Help with your blog

Maybe you need help on resizing your header or move some stuff around or change color or change template or whatever and have nowhere to turn (except for the internet), then ask me. Simply make a request in the comments. And if you need me to get into your template and make the actual changes, I might do that if you really need help. But Blogger's Blogspot blogs only. I have not used Wordpress for years and do not know what updates they have made so I don't want to blindly tell you what to do but if it's something simple and if I can answer it, then I'll tell you.

Why am I doing this? I want to help people with their blogs and make them work properly. I'm not saying anyone's blog needs fixing or changing, only that sometimes, blogs don't look or work the way they should. And perhaps my graphic design side also wants to make blogs look better. I can't say I'm an expert in blogs and templates and such but I have done this for years. I'll try this for a month or two as a sort of test. I may regret this but if people don't try new things, they won't know if they can do it. So this is like my new thing for this year.

Make a request in the comments and I'll see if I can help. Remember, Blogspot blogs only.

  2. That is a very generous offer. I have been afraid to tinker with mine.

    1. I was too at first but after a while, you do learn how to do it.

  3. I wish you had posted this when I couldn't change the links colour on my original blog, then I maybe could have kept things the way they were, just with links in a colour people could easily see. Too late now, I'm kind of used to the new look already, but there are still some readers who can't find the menu, which is three small horizontal stripes above the blog name, or they can't find the bloglist or the link to the Wednesday stories. I'm hesitant to start fiddling with it in case I mess it up and lose everything, also my hands can only take so much typing in one day.

    1. I thought of the idea just a few days ago so...

      I see a pages menu in your template, you should just make a link at the top there right next to 'home' to get to your words for wed. there's an option in your pages configuration page called 'add external link' - there you can add the link.

      as for the menu, I wouldn't try to tinker with it as it is designed not to show and I also think if your readers need to find anything on your blog, I'm sure they can eventually.

      thanks for dropping by, have a lovely day.

    2. The menu does show, although it didn't at first and I don't know how that changed, it wasn't any of my doing, but it did change and is now visible to me and to some others. The link to the Wednesday stories is at the bottom of the bloglist.

    3. it's not that I couldn't find the link to your wednesday stories, I just thought you should add a link next to the home link so people can find it easier.

      thanks for stopping, have a lovely day.
