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.
