Finally I managed to get some kind of customized design uploaded to this blog! I'm such a newbie at blogging and I've never worked with custom css so it took me a while to understand what I was doing.
My old blog design was pre-defined and although it was cute, I really wanted to get some of my own stuff in there.
I'm happy that at least I managed to get my own background and banner up! Another project in the works.. (or work in progress :)) Happy me!
