Today I discovered that you can change the background of your WordPress blog. I’d seen the heading before in the appearance menu – in fact, I’m fairly sure I even went into it! – but it just never seemed to register with me what that meant. While browsing other blogs today I stumbled across someone who was using the same theme as me, and that person was using a really nice textured background. My blog looked dull in comparison. Ever the perfectionist, I have now embarked upon a quest to find a suitable and stylish background for my blog!
My experiments thus far have pointed me in a “wood” direction. I’m still not 100% happy with the options I’ve tried so far, so I will probably be spending the rest of the night switching in different ones on trial runs 😛 Matching the background with the header photo is proving almost impossible! (I think I will change the header). At the very least though they add an extra splash of color and texture to the blog, and that has to be a good thing! Let me know if you have suggestions. Be creative so I don’t have to 😉 My internet is running really slowly today so it’s taking forever to load the damn Google images… It will be worth it though. It will be worth it.
