Testing Editor and Picture

Don't mind me. 

I'm just goofin' around. 

I learned something new today about blogger. 

Donna taught me. 

Isn't she the greatest blog friend / mentor 
a gal could have? 

She shares her infinite wisdom- 
and doesn't mind doing it either. 

She helps us all be better bloggers. 

Checking it out now. 

Do I like my pictures so big?

*Edited to say : 
Ok... I had to change it from XL to large 
and I still think it might be a tad big. 
Because it is cut of to one side (near the side bar) 
However- this is pretty easy. 
I like the fact that my pictures are bigger and if I moved it to the left maybe it wouldn't be cut off. 

I'll be back. 

** Edited Again! 

I'm back.  Doesn't matter what I do- no matter where I tell my picture to be in this window- 
it is exactly dead center in my blog window. 

Well, I've obviously got some more schoolin' in the fine art of Bloggin' 

Like I said 
I'm just goofin' around. 

If you read this whole thing and think it was a waste of time. 
I apologize. 

But thanks for reading anyway. 

Have a Blessed Day! 


I was told how to change my width and tweak my blog.

How does it look?

I'm liking it!

Thanks for all the input - I just love my blogging friends!

I DID read the whole thing because I had also read the editting tutorial. I haven't tried it yet, but it's fun to learn something new everyday with this blogging business. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog and you will be happy to know I was out moving my blasted oak leaves around again!! No planting until those babies stop falling.

Hi, I read your plea at Donna's blog. Do you want to change your column margins, or are you "good"? I post my pics XL and let them be a little cut off, because I already have 3 cols. Best of luck! I think I can point you in the right direction if you need to change them. :)

Haha good work!

What's happening is, your columns are so narrow, they won't allow anything much more than L (if that) in. I feel your pain!

If Kim hasn't helped you already, you can try this url until I have time to type another tute. They take a long time with screen shots and such.

It's alot of gook to read through and not how I would portay this lesson, but if you can decifer stuff out of it, it's the way I learned. :)

I have a Sand Dollar blogger template - I guess it is 2 columns - and my photos (at least when I view them on my computer) aren't cut off at all. But I'm so new to blogging that I really can't say I know what I am doing at all.

Yes, Donna IS the best! And I am so glad you are practicing her tutorial so that when I need help trying to figure it all out I'll have TWO great sources.

Your post demonstrates that blogging, like anything else, is a learning process. It's step-by-step! While it can be frustrating, the challenge is fun and the discoveries are exciting!

Oh, at least your trying and learning I just feel like an old dog! Hee Hee. Lezlee

Hey, we're playing with the same things today! I also followed along Donna's tute this evening so I could have bigger need to go to her url to fix the margins....glad I stopped over!

By the way, your blog is looking FAB!

Oh, you know how it goes. I've been married going on 33 years and Hubs says I'll build you a house for your stuff/playroom, But he doesn't have a tool room at the moment...So you know the rest of the story, but it will eventually be my little hideout... Maybe I'll let the grand daughters take tea with me! Ice tea, of course! Lezlee

oh, Pat. I couldn't dive in to the info Donna had this week. Glad you did though. When I "get there" I may give you a shout. I like bigger pics. I want my blog to be larger so that my pictures aren't cut off when I make them bigger.

No need to apologize for the post! I enjoyed it!
