Blog Updates

Well.  Happy Halloween and Happy Saturday to you all.

I find myself in the delightful position of having one Halloween party and one family dinner to attend this weekend, which means that I get to spend a great deal of time sitting on the couch relaxing, and attending to Things That Have Needed To Get Done on the old blog for awhile.

First off, I am informed that WordPress now allows you to do some font modifications without having to purchase the Typekit add-on.  Praise.  I didn’t mind the serif-ed font that my theme (Coraline) is automatically set-up to use, but I am quite interested in trying a few other fonts on for size.

I also spent a bit of time updating links, and whatnot as I realized some of these were broken and there is nothing more pointless than having a website full of broken links.  Not exactly the most rewarding work, but it had to get done.

I typed up the recipe for Garden Pie.  Because it’s not fair that I eat it so much and I do not share it with you!

Finally, I have been itching to change my header for a while from a photo to simple text.  After doing a bit of Google-ing this morning, it became apparent that actioning a free header has become MUCH easier than the old tutorial I used that involved many steps in Picasa.  For my purposes, this tutorial from Sweet Jelly Bean made the whole process about 20 minutes from start to finish. If you’re a low-maintenance blogger like me who is not going to throw $$$ or a great deal of effort at site design and whatnot, then I think you will probably appreciate this tool!  I am not sure if what I have currently will be the final product or not, but for now I think that it is a good stepping stone.

Bloggers: Are there any online design tutorials that you love?  Please share!
