  1. I have a website and put my own photos on there but It never occurred to me to put borders around them to stand out, I have only just put them as they were but now I have to change the way to do things with the pictures I put on there.
    Thanks for the info 🙂

    • Hello Matthew,

      Try to use free tools like Canva.com to design your images, I personally use this tool and it’s wonderful.

    • Hi Diane,

      I guess that you have a smartphone, so go to your App Store and look for any free Audio Recorder App. After you record an audio, you can send it to your email and open it on your computer or connect your phone to the iTunes and download the file.

      When you’re creating a new post, go to “Add Media” (top left) and add audio.

      That’s it 🙂

  2. I like your thought on the custom banner for the blog. It looks like the one you have for this post is a great example because it adds a lot to the post! I didn’t know about the customizing images, I will definitely have to try that on my blog. Thanks!
