Sometimes the internet is a wealth of information, helping even the most ignorant person accomplish amazing things. But sometimes, the evil side of the internet rears its ugly head and you feel like the dumbest person in the world. Making a blog button in five easy steps sounds great in theory, but the reality of these complex steps leaves me disappointing and frustrated. Which is maybe why the accomplishments feel that much better.
I have been trying for about a week now to crack into they mystical world of clip art and coding, and am still utterly lost. I was able to change my blogger background and make links in posts, but nothing beyond that. I was trying to add some flair, but I am too stubborn and broke to pay for a blog design. Adobe is out of the question right now, so I was messing around with Powerpoint, but you can't make PNG images on there, so my pictures all had white backgrounds. While searching Pinterest, I clicked a link for an art project on Everyday Mom Ideas and found gold. She had used a program called paint.net, which is a free editing program similar to a basic old version of Adobe.
I immediately downloaded the program and used it to edit my sweet Blog Header (thanks LeeLou!) It is a very basic program compared to something like Adobe, but I love that you can do layers and make PNG images. I am so excited to continue to work with this program and develop my blog!
Do you have any more advice? I could use some suggestions, especially about clip art.
