I finally took the plunge and purchased the “custom design” feature on WordPress. Which, among other things, means I change the “CSS” on my blog. I put that in quotes because I have no idea what that is.
I took WordPress’ recommended CSS Beginners Tutorial, but I think they forgot to translate into English. Or at least into a language that those of us who are computer-illiterate can understand.
My friends Kaitlin and Paul recommended that I take an HTML class first. This, they said, is more along the lines of “What Is The Internet?”, which I think is where I need to start. They recommended either Lynda or Code Academy.
But here’s my question. Is it worth it? How much control do you have over the design of your blog? Do you wish you had more? Less?
I think I will try to tackle this over the weekend. Until I get so frustrated that I push my computer off the table. Or cry. Or call my dad and ask him to explain it to me. Come to think of it, maybe I should start by calling him first.
