Today, I spent $24 and about three hours “blog wrangling” as I call it. Fighting with CSS code to get my new WordPress.com theme “Zuki” to look the way I want it to look.
I’m not quite there yet, because I am not sure how I can get the featured image to NOT show up at the top of all the blog posts above the post title. If there are any professional blog wranglers reading who might now the CSS code for this, I would love your help! Otherwise, when I get home I’m going to consult the trusty WordPress forums.
Blog wrangling is something I’ve always loved to do. I’ve been messing with HTML and CSS on websites since I was in high school. I started out with an Angelfire site back in 1999, then used all sorts of other platforms like Diary-X, Livejournal, Blogger, and finally my own self-hosted WordPress and Squarespace sites.
I am NEVER satisfied with how my blog looks. I could tweak it and change it constantly and still wouldn’t feel like it was “finished.” But then, I think it’s fun to constantly change things. It’s satisfying to learn new bits of code and use them to achieve instant gratification of a job well done.
When the job is going well, of course.
Are you happy with your theme? What are some things you might like to change about it? You should let me know, maybe I can help!
