Natasha is hosting Bloggiesta again this year! Happy 4th Bloggiesta! (If you're wondering, it's like a "working weekend" where bloggers do housekeeping on their sites, a little pruing, maybe a few mini-challenges and help each other out).
I did some Bloggiesta-ing last year - added my header picture and changed up the template to something a little more custom designed - but I won't be really joining in since I'm still unpacking boxes. Although I could work on the Reading Chemistry blog...hmmmm....maybe.
But anywhoo the reason for this post has to do with programming. I really don't understand how blog templates set out widgets, colors, columns, etc. and I have no idea how to read the code (I know a little bit about HTML but this seems to be CSS). So this is my tiny, tiny Bloggiesta goal. Ready?
Bloggiesta 2011 goal: Find a book/good reference so I can start to understand how blog templates/websites are put together so that next time we Bloggiesta I will be able to do some more customization/cleanup.
So this is where everyone else comes in - do you have good reference material that you use when you do tweaks and updates? Books or websites are fine so tell me your faves!
