10 Blogger Tricks to Prettify Your Blog {5+5 Fridays}

When I started my 5+5 Fridays, I shared several posts on how to create a pretty blog without spending any money at all.  For instance, I shared this post with resources for free blog designs, and this post with free social media icons.  Today, I am going to share 10 awesome blogger tutorials that I have found – and used – one my own blog… so they really do work!

Here they are!

1. Make a Grab Box for Your Button

2. Embed Image Links into Your Header

3. Remove Padding from Your Header

4. Add a Facebook Like Box to Your Blog

5. Remove Titles on Your Sidebar

6. Remove White Space Above Your Header

7.  How to Center Your Page Menu

8. Remove Border and/or Shadow From Images

9. Replace “Read More” Text With an Image

10.  Install Google Web Fonts on Your Blog

There you have it, 10 super easy ways to beautify  your blog – no graphic designer needed!  Pair these with the blog and social media resources I shared at the beginning of this post, and you will have a totally rockin’ blog in no time!
