Y3W: Learning to Blog

I have been wanting to blog for quite some time. Every time I read a great blog I think "I could do this! I have a lot to say!" Well, thinking it and actually doing it are two different things so this week I decided to take the plunge and it sure has been a learning experience.

First of all, kudos to everyone who blogs. You have to have material and style. With two kiddos and the world of full-time employment in Student Affairs, I have got the material. Style? I may have it, but it is super difficult to create it online! I see all of these beautiful blogs and think "what programs are they using and how did they do that?" Luckily, there's pretty much a blog for everything and thanks to some great blogging tutorials: Blogging with Amy (Love the name :) ) I was able to create my own header:

and a button:

Now, it's all very simple and a little rough, but I JUST started! I hope to be able get a little more sophisticated as time goes on, but for right now I am proud of myself!

I am also happy to finally be able to take part in Your Three Words on this Friday morning as I am now a part of the blogging world.

What are your three words this week? Link up here:

Your blog looks amazing! I too have always wondered how people make their blogs look so amazing. I might have to make my own header as well.

Thanks! There are tons of tutorials - hopefully I will gain more savy in this area, for now I'm just doing the best I can!
