Okay, I know I said in the last customizing post that I would show you how to create a navigation bar like I have under my header. Well, guess what? It's a lot harder to tell you how to do it than I thought it would be. Not that it's hard to create one just I'm not very good at explaining things sometimes. So I went scouring the internet and found a great site that has answers to any questions you may ever have on customizing you Blogger blog.

Dum, dum, da dum! Presenting Tips for New Bloggers. Their posts are pretty easy to follow and I learned a few new tricks just by browsing through their archives.

So here's a link to their instructions on creating a navigation bar.

Whew! That's just made my life so much easier. I really was starting to stress about this!

And what do the red 3 inch high heel shoes have to do with this post? Absolutely nothing. Amber wanted to see a picture of them. I lurve them!


  1. Thanks for the tips.

    One question though...How and why do you copyright your photos?

  2. Hubba! Hubba! I love 'em too! Thanks for the glimpse:-)

  3. I stole the pic. of the shoes for my profile pic. they are so cute! P.S. where did you get them?:)

  4. Thanks so much for all the info on blogging. That is a lot of work for you to do for us internets.

  5. Mommymita,

    I started putting copyrights on my photos after seeing them put on other blogs without my permission. This has drastically reduced someone taking my photos. I usually try to do it on photos that contain my children to protect them a little more.

    I use Photoshop Elements to put the copyright on my photos. I created a brush so I just have to "stamp" it on when I'm done editing my photos. You don't have to have any fancy photo editing software to add a copyright. You can add a simple text to your photos just by using the basic paint program on your computer.

  6. Thanks for helping this software code greenie go from a stock blog to a fun work in progress. Great tutorials!

  7. Do you know what a good size would be if I make my own pictures on my navigation bar? Can I just create some in PS and then add them to my flickr account for the URL?

    Thank you for making these tutorials a lot easier to understand.


  8. Do you have a tutorial for creating your own button? I looked around on the link you provided, but not sure I was searching for the correct search terms. I already have my image just not sure what html codes to change.

    Thank you again for all your help!

Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done. ☺ There, don't you feel better?

Please leave a comment! I enjoy hearing your thoughts, whether you agree with me or not. If we all agreed on everything how boring would that be? Worse than eating white chocolate, because it's fake. So be real, be yourself.
