Tutorial on adding a layout to your blogs

1. Go to customize your blog and click on Layout. Next you want to click on Pick New Template.

2-In the 'Pick New Template' tab, you must change your template to 'minima' (not minima ochre or others, just plain white minima)

3-Click on 'edit html' on the far right

4- In the crazy code, scroll to where you see this: body {background:$bgcolor;margin:0; color:$textcolor; font:x-small Georgia Serif; font-size/* */:/**/small; font-size: /**/small; text-align: center;}

5-Change that part of the code to say this: body {background:$bgcolor;background-image:url(direct link);background-position: center; background-repeat:no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed;margin:0; color:$textcolor; font:x-small Georgia Serif; font-size/* */:/**/small; font-size: /**/small; text-align: center;}
From this
To this.

6-Now, find your favorite background, and copy and paste the link below it between the parenthesis where it says '(direct link)'

Then click on save template.

Sorry I haven't been around

I'm soooo sorry that I haven't gotten the second part of my what little boys/girls are made of kit up. But have been extremely busy with my forum and with my family. My mom had surgery on her kidney to remove a 10 mm kidney stone and they had to remove the 2 stents she had in her kidney and replace them. Now we are on a waiting game to see if her liver fails from the stress of the surgery and everyday stress. As soon as she shows signs of liver failure she will be flown to Nebraska for a liver transplant. Keep your fingers crossed and prayers going that she won't need the transplant for awhile. I've also been fighting with my ex husband over child support he hasn't paid any since November and I am trying to support my youngest son on a little bit of nothing. I hate to say it but I may have to break down and start making some PTU kits along with my freebie kits to try and make some money for my son. Plus with all the trips back and forth with my mom it's killing us in gas. I hope everyone has a wonderful day. I'm going to be posting a new tutorial on here for people who would like to learn how to add their own layouts to their blogs. I have a tutorial on how to make a blog layout but nothing on how to add it.
