One thing I like about blogs is the ability to customise the look of it. You could be reading two different blogs that look miles apart yet they still use the same Blogger template. I always prefer reading someone's unique blog over a generic-looking Facebook page any day, and I have seem some awesomely awesome blog designs. But because I have basically zero knowledge of web developing, html, css, I've sometimes felt a tiny bit limited by some of the customisations I've seen other people do and what I was able to create.
But my friend Sarah has helped me out by explaining how to make customisations in her blog. Things like how to change the favicon icon (that small square in the tab), adding a contact form and how to add a related posts widget. I can definitely say that it wasn't as hard as I originally thought it would be.
So if you have a blog and want to know how to create some cool custom widgets and doodads, I suggest taking a look at Sarah's bloggity blog.

I thought I would share another book I've recently bought, this time it's Eponymonstrous by the insanely talented Ragnar. I've always loved his bold and colourful illustration style, and the book covers all his work from 2000-2010. It's quite unbelievable just how prolific the guy is, because the book is THICK - 320 pages - and it is just filled with artwork after artwork.
