Thanks to my 14yr old neice/blog designer

I have been experimenting and reading tutorials on how to create and design my blog for a few weeks now.  It gets so frustrating sometimes I just give up.  Then I was so happy when I noticed that blogger had created those new layouts and backgrounds.  So I made a new blog template that I though was ok and all I needd now was a button.  My 14 year old neice has been here a few days hanging out and she asked me what I was doing and I explained how I was trying to figure out how to make a button for my blog.  She then says "I can do that."  I was like "no way"  and voila in 10 minutes she had a button made.  I couldn't believe it.  SO of course my Lucy wheels were turning and I told her how she can make a blog and maybe start charging 5 bucks for a premade template that she can design.   She even helped me make my Facebook fan page and link it to Twittter.

How on earth do kids so young know how to do all these things already??  It is simply amazing.  Maybe someday soon my son who is 11 will learn from his cousin and then I will have my own personal graphic artist at my beck and call.  I just wanted to say thanks to my awsome neice Felicia for all your help and spending a few hours working on my blog and making me a button.  YAY!!!  I have a button...Tell me what ya think.  I love hearing all your comments.

Nice job to your neice! I wish I knew how to make a blog button. 14 year olds outdoing adults on the computer. Now I know how my parents felt.

I dont know how she did it either but it took her less than 10 minutes....she copied and pasted a pic I liked, changed a few details like hair color and eye color, then uploaded to some site and BAM put it on my blog

I love the look and theme of your blog. You did a great job! I have been frustrated too at times trying to create a blog.... how do kids know how to do it? Astonishing! Anyway I just wanted to pop by and thank you for entering my vacation giveaway and for following me. I am now following you. Thank you!

Your blog looks amazing!

Is your niece interested in a job? lol. I have to re-do my blog and I can't do it as good as her! lol.

Learning designing isn't really hard, just takes a lot of patience trial and error. Learning to write html on the other hand is a pain in the rear.
Cute button!

Amazing! It took me days and days and hours and hours of reading and researching to get my blog to look like I wanted and to create a button and I'm still not exactly sure how I did it! :)

Kids are amazing creatures! My 3 year old can maneuver all the buttons and cords to plug in his little smart cycle in to the TV and make it work. He is also pretty hooked on computers too :O) Did I mention he was 3?
Take care,
Tracy

Yeah, I call my son the I.T. department because he is who I call when I want something fixed. Lol.

Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog. Oh, and Jon Bon Jovi? I just have one word. Yum.

Isn't it amazing how kids these days seem to be born with technological skills from the minute they hit the earth? I think you're onto something. I'm going to enlist my girls from now on.

Oh, and by the way. Your blog is one of the cutest blogs I've seen. I love Lucy.
