I'm currently feelin: anxious anxious

Blogskins.com has a few free templates based on the band, if anyone is looking to fancy up one's layout.


I'm knew to LJ cuts. Crossing my fingers...

Love And Peace Or Else

also has designs for Coldplay and Gwen Stefani, among others. Pretty soon, I'll work on things like this, and once I have some on topic, I'll tell you about them.

Nota Bene: I know you guess aren't stupid, but I think I should warn you, just in case; the images used in these templates are remote-linked, meaning they aren't physically stored on your blog. Be sure to save the images, and replace the artist's locations with your own, if you don't want them vanishing on you.
I took it for granted that they'd stay awhile, but if you aren't careful, your images can be 404ed to dust!

Thanks for pointing those out! I love layouts, so this is very cool. Also, if you're ever unsure of how to do something, just check the lj faq.

Thanks again :)

Does anyone know how to put these in LJ accounts? Or do you need a paid account?

I haven't figured out a way to do this with a free LJ account, so I do that sort of thing with Blogger.

I can't manage to make these work with free Xanga and Livejournals, but at Blogger (not to drive anyone away from Livejournal), the process is really simple. Sign up at Blogskins, this take a few seconds, use the search
engine on the far right, select the subject, then browse until you find the right one.

That done, you just click the download button. What happens next may very. I'm using a Linux OS, but it shouldn't be different in Windows. It should open as a text document, Okay? That's the source code.

Once you have that, half the work is already done. Then you start a Blogger account. That's as easy as starting a Livejournal. Once you have it set up, look two tabs left of the "post" tab. It will say "Template." Click it, and you'll see a box full of source code. Select all, and erase it. Then select all the source from the text document you downloaded, and paste it in the empty box. Most of the work is complete.

Heck, I just set up an example at http://highway66speaks.blogspot.com/

If you ask, I'll just give that to you.

Awesome!! And the example esp.! But I don't think I can keep up two blogs and a community. I have a paid account here. Would it work with that?

I'm not the best person to ask, because I've never worked with a paid LJ account (meaning I'm cheap), but assuming Livejournal let's paid customers alter the raw source (I wouldn't know if they do, because, again, I'm cheap),
I don't see why you couldn't.

Now what am I going to do with this nascent blog...?

I'll give it to someone.................................
