As a fairly new blogger, I am learning something new almost every day and I'm loving every minute of it. I'm also the type of person who likes to try things out on my own, and usually, a Google search gets me what I'm looking for almost immediately and I can begin experimenting. This sometimes results in some big blogger blunders, but it's fun all the same.
I'm actually thrilled with how far I have come in just a few months. Just yesterday, I learned how to use Picmonkey to create a collage to customize my blog heading. It looks so much better than it did last week! Today, I added the Google + gadget so people can, "+1" me. This is great and once I really understand what it means, it will be even better. :)
However, the blues set in this afternoon when I decided that I wanted to add the "Pin it" button to my blog. I started by reading a few different websites with directions and finally settled on one that seemed the most straight forward. I've used code before so I was able to follow the steps easily until I noticed that the piece of code I needed to paste below on my "edit html" screen wasn't there. I found a similar line, tried it, but no luck. Being the slightly obsessive person I am (really...just slightly), I spent almost two hours trying to complete my task until life forced me to put my quest on hold (who knew kids needed to eat!).
Oh well, better blogging comes with time and tomorrow is another day. :)
