Info and a poll

Okay, so I've changed my layout. Again. Yeah, I know this is some odd habit of mine, but now I'm pretty pleased with it. It's lighter than the one I had before. I think I will add a background pattern and some fancy stuff, like link-decorations, but in penny numbers, I don't want to overdo it.

Here on IJ I modify my layout with a theme layer. Yay, now that I have a permanent account, I can do this. Over on LJ I only ever have had a free account. Oh dear, I actually wanted to upgrade to a paid account shortly before LJ went mad and all. Thank god I did resist!

Anyway, before I got myself my first journal ever on LJ one year and a half ago, I hadn't known one tiny bit about CSS, coding, html and the like. Then I got my account and started messing around with my layout pretty soon after that. It's just that I must have a shiny layout or else I won't feel "at home". *lol* So, I actually googled like a lunatic, went here and there, did this and that, made a whole lot of mistakes, and somehow, after some time, I got the hang of CSS, at least so much so that I won't stare like forever on a stylesheet without knowing what's it about. Go me.

Then [info]only_gremo and [info]mllesatine gave me this permanent account as a birthday present two months or so ago, (Oh dears, I can't thank you both enough for that! &hearts &hearts), wich opened a whole new world of coding to me: the theme layer. Yep. And even though you can put a CSS sequence in it; which I, as I said, am quite familiar with; there's also that other stuff I don't even know how it's called. I guess it's html coding, but I'm not sure. Anyway, my point is, I have yet to get the hang of it. It looks (and I think it certainly is) a lot more complicated than simple CSS. I hope it won't take me too long to understand.

Anyway, my current layout is also modified with that complicated coding stuff. It's mostly because I found this great LJ community called s2flexisquares where you can find codes for all sorts of things you wish to adjust, change or whatsoever.

However, I don't even know why this post got so long in the end. I just wanted to inform you about my new layout. I'm not even sure whether you guys read this in the first place... erm yeah, whatever...

I'm also entertaining the idea of posting more of these tutorials/how-to/helpful stuff guides. I really enjoy writing these and I hope they will help others in some way or another. Maybe I should make my first random poll about that?! ---Yes, I should do this...

So here it comes, my first very simple and very random poll:

Poll #394 Tutorials
Open to: All, results viewable to: All

Do you want to see more tutorials/helpful stuff/how-to guides?

Hah, I made the first vote! I know I know, how crappy is that, voting in my own poll. Don't judge me! It's my very first poll and I was curious. I voted for yes, because I enjoy writing these tutorials, so...
