Free E-Book on Building Your Blogger Template

It's been awhile since I've posted. Healing from surgery is taking time and while typing is not as difficult as I thought it would be, the pain in my re-worked elbow is slowing me down much more than I thought it would. Ouch, healing bones hurt! While unable to type a lot, I have been reading all the wonderful blogs I subscribe to and have found some really great items to share with you during my healing time. I also have some patterns and how to tutorials to share that I created several years ago.

One of the blogs to which I subscribe is Blogger Buster. This blog is full of helpful tutorials to create just the right template for you. Whether you're interested in working on customizing your personal or business blog or want to learn how to create templates for others, I believe you will find easy to understand and learn techniques.

"In this free eBook you can learn about:

  • Different styles of layout and overall blog design
  • How to install different types of Blogger templates
  • How to maintain widgets when changing templates
  • Where to download the best free templates
  • How to speed up the loading time for your blog
  • How to optimize your blog template to rank higher in search engines
  • Useful resources to help you get the most from your Blogger template."
We're still waiting on the arrival of Liam, my first grandchild. He should make his appearance within the next week or so. I can't wait to share pictures with you. This weekend I'm finishing the Sunbonnet Sam quilt or at least going to try. It would be nice to have it done and ready for when Baby comes home.

Have a great weekend <3

♥♥ Some Great Deals & Contests To Share ♥♥

While I am not typing much, I am reading my daily dose of the variety of blogs I subscribe to. Here are a few good things I've found that might be of interest ☺☺.

From CraftStylish --Enter to Win a Simplicity Bias Tape Maker!

From FreePatterns -- Mix-and-Match Outfits -- "Soft and simple, these tiny garments will dress baby up in style! The mix-and-match pieces coordinate for a truly versatile gift."

From Dantearaujo --Photoplus - Free Premium Blogger Template -- "Photoplus is a great theme for photographers that want to use Blogger as a portfolio. . ." While no text can be used with this template, it is great free workaround for artists and photographers who can linkthis blog to their main blog to add a portfolio.

Surgery was a week ago yesterday and I am making progress. The spinal injection I received last month is still holding. So all in all I am satisfied with life and hope this note finds you well and feeling the same.

♥♥ Much love, ♥♥
