Another Gift - This One From a Blogger Customization and Coding Angel

Over the last few weeks, you may have noticed some changes on the blog - alright, yes, unless you're blind, you noticed.  LOL  For quite some time now (a couple of years at least), I have wanted to make the blog feel a little more "puzzle themed".  Unfortunately, I could never find a blogger template that looked like what I was envisioning in my head.  I wanted it to look like the blog of a jigsaw puzzle enthusiast - not just some generic "magazine style" layout that you see on every other blog out there.  I was getting frustrated with the way the blog looked, but I didn't know how I was going to fix it since I don't have any html / java / CSS coding knowledge.

And then my Coding Angel, Jessica, posted a comment on one of my posts and we started chatting.  It was as if that initial post was a gift from above because as it turns out Jessica and I have tons in common too, and even better, she possessed the knowledge I lacked - experience with customizing a blog!  Woo hoo  Happy Day!

So, it is due to Jessica that the blog looks as great as it does now (okay, slightly biased there I know).  She gave me lots of advice on where to find the items I wanted to change in the code, and what to insert where, how to delete this but not that, etc.

Now, not only do I have a great looking blog, but I have "met" another puzzle enthusiast who is quickly becoming a good friend too.  Thanks Jessica!

And please, check out Jessica's blog too, by clicking here.  She has created an awesome puzzle mounting method.

    1. It was my duty and honor to give credit where credit is due! Thanks again!
