Blogging Tips

I've had a few questions about how to get a third column, How to center date & title of post and use of different fonts. So here are you answers.

3 Columns: I used this tutorial 3 Column Template

Center Post Title & Date:
1. once signed into blogger click on Customize
2. click on html
3. scroll down and find this:
/* Posts -----------------------------------------------

4. paste this: text-align:center   after
h2.date-header {

and
.post {
 
 
this is how mine looks:
-----------------------------------------------
 */
h2.date-header {
text-align:center;
  margin:1.5em 0 .5em;

  }

.post {
background: url(http://i103.photobucket.com/albums/m145/crystalchesser/Layout%20Pics/Image3-2.jpg);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: bottom center;
text-align:center;
margin:.5em 0 1.5em;
border-bottom:0px dotted $bordercolor;
padding-bottom:5.5em;
Post Title
}

Hope this helps if you need further instructions let me know.

Ohhhh...girl! Yer gonna LOVE how easy that tile was to make! The tile was leftover from building our first house.....but you can buy them in pack for SUPER cheap at Lowe's or Home Depot. I bought the ribbon on sale at Michael's...and I would suggest getting the ribbon with wire in it, the bow looks SO much prettier when you shape it. The key was purchased at Tai Pan....probably the most expensive item....I bought a key ring that had four different sizes of metal keys on it...and I ordered the vinyl from It's A Sign....you can google her. VERY affordable pricing! I just emailed her a sample of what I wanted and she whipped it up! I used wire to attach the key to the ribbon.....and WA-LAH!! Good luck!
