I have a hard time knowing when to charge people for help. At what point is something so quick and easy for me that I can do it for free? And at what point does it take long enough that I should really be charging for it?
In order to help combat this never-ending battle, I’m going to implement a new “once in a while” feature on Nose Graze. On certain days, like today, I’ll answer all your questions! Sometimes I may only answer certain questions or other times I may open it up to anything. But I’ll be here to help you out!
A few rules
- I will only answer during certain hours. After that, I’ll close comments. Today I’ll be answering questions between 1pm and 5pm UK time.
- I don’t HAVE to answer everything (I will try though!).
- If something is too long/difficult/complex for me to answer quickly, I may have to skip it. I’m aiming to spend less than 3 minutes per question. (That may not sound like much, but I can get A LOT done in 3 minutes. Most simple CSS snippets take me about 30 seconds.)
So with that in mind…
Ask me anything about CSS tweaks for your blog!
Today’s topic is going to be restricted to HTML/CSS tweaks. If there’s something you’ve been wanting to tweak/adjust, let me know, leave a link to your blog, and I’ll help you out. Here are a few examples of good questions:
- I’ve been wanting to increase the font size for my widget titles. How can I do that?
- I can’t figure out how to center this widget in my sidebar. Help!
- How can I make my links purple?
- I want to add a little extra space between each blog post. How do I do that?
I’ll help you out and give you HTML/CSS snippets. But please do some research on how to add custom CSS to your blog, since I cannot help each person with that individually. I’ll give you the snippets, but you need to know where to place it.
If you don’t already have an area for adding custom CSS, install the Simple Custom CSS plugin. This will add a new menu in: Appearance » Custom CSS. You simply paste any CSS code there.
If you use the Jetpack plugin, you should already have a submenu under Appearance called “Edit CSS”. You can paste it there.
Here’s a link to a tutorial on how to add CSS code to Blogger. That should help you out!
