Success will mean we will always be a under construction
Unfortunately Blogger header only sets up the text in one paragraph one font not for easy reading. Especially if you need paragraphs to explain yourself. So sometime the readers is unable to connect the subject with the blog. This could create a poorly developed site. So, taking the time is essential to your site success and developing readers.
Naturally, the enthusiasm has got me now and setting up a blog site will take a little more effort on my part. Until this achievement  improving and writing my article until a proper group of great reading archive has been established for my readers viewing. All my energy and focus will be trying to make this happen. So if you like what you read. stop back and see our web evolve from a cocoon to butterfly to flutter to blossom to blossom.

Designing my Side Bar

Using Fonts and blogger tools.

One of the most important things for a bloggers is to design your own unique identity.  To identify your own identity we will review a few ways to obtain this by using some of the tools and equipment that are provided by the bloggers sites of your choice.

 Now you should have already added to your site a Logo.  The power of your logo will be now, narrow down to using some specific details that you can expand to your sidebar..  The Side bar image should have some pull from an original design from your logo.  But, not the Logo itself, This could be details such as color identifiers or perhaps a specific loop or squiggle that identifies you from others. This design could be a specific font or a new design that you will now use through your whole design.

 by using repetition in your designs you will not only educate your readers. You will use familiarity to make identifiers for easy finding things such as articles, freebies, or even a symbol that can identify you from others. Don’t just stop at this. Having something good to read and wonderful information that will bring return to your site is also important.  This is why we need to grow followers reading to create streaming to our Blog site. Of course this will be an article that we will talk about in greater detail.
