Wool-less Wednesday: Useful Websites for Being Creative with Your Blog

Resources for setting up and customizing your blog allow you to extend your creativity beyond the content of your blog.

Here are some websites that allow you to do just that:

* Three Column Blogger is a sight that gives you detailed instructions on how to change your Minima Blogger Template from two columns to three columns. You will have to edit the HTML of the original Blogger template. Don't let this stop you from trying it, if you would really like a three column blog. You save your original blog template before editing the HTML. If you mess up, you have the original safe on your hard drive.

* HTML color codes are easily accessible in this chart. Even though Blogger allows you to easily customize your blog's colors by clicking on color blocks when in the Fonts and Colors menu in Layout, this chart expands the range of colors you can choose. Just copy the HTML color code of your choice from the chart and paste it into the "Edit Color Hex Code" box found in Fonts and Colors. Press enter and voila the color changes for whatever part of your blog you have selected!

* Web Resizer is a nifty tool that allows you to resize and enhance the quality of your blog photos whether for posts or your banner. Check out the feature that allows you add a border to your photo. You can also visit  Picresize which offers some more cool ways to modify your pictures.

I hope these websites are useful for being creative with your blog.

Happy blogging!
