REVIEW



THEMES AND THINGS...
 
Many of my readers have created and maintained Blogs through the Blogger.com platform for years. If you're one of them, you'll be excited about the news I'm about to share here.

Have you visited your settings and layout lately? Blogger has launched some customizable beautiful new themes and templates to update your site, that rival the popular ones offered through WordPress.

I discovered this recently while giving one of my other sites a "make-over" a few months ago.

To check them out, log into your dashboard and click on "theme."

Choose from Contempo, Soho, Emporio or Notable.

Remember, just as you would "remodel" and freshen your brick and mortar home, your "virtual spot" benefits from the same attention periodically, too.


That's it for this week, folks. Thanks for reading.

Please note: Pen and Prosper will be on a summer break starting June 28 through August 28th, as I work on some new projects, revisit some old ones, and rest in between.
I hope you'll join me upon return; I'll have a few surprises, more resources and more writers' reads to advance and enhance you!

See you next week.

Comments? Thoughts?

Will you be taking a summer break? Do tell.
