For Nicole!

Nicole asked me in a comment how I made my pictures have rounded corners. First of all, if you don’t have a white background, it will look like my pictures, which aren’t technically rounded because the square edges show through as white. I don’t know if that makes any sense, but whatever!

Anyway, I am using this great tool called Windows Live Writer and it’s awesome! I have read about a lot of other blogger people using it and it’s really great. It’s free and you can just download it here: http://download.live.com/writer. It makes blogging SO much easier! I hate blogger and how the pictures get all messed up and it can get so frustrating but live writer makes it way simple.

You can just link up to your blog then use live writer to write and publish posts. You can import pictures and everything like normal, it’s just much easier to move around text and pictures. You can also change fonts and colors much easier and you can edit pictures in a lot of different ways like this:

You can also click the effects tab and change the pic to black and white or a few other things! Then you can preview your post before you post it. You can also go back and edit previous posts. It’s pretty great and I highly recommend it!
