How to Create your Own Logo Using Cooltext

Before you start, make sure to check the width of your entire blog. You can do that by going to your dashboard, then click on “Template>>Customize>>Adjust Widths", then click “Back to Blogger”.

To create your own logo, you can either use Photoshop, or if you are not very familiar with it, you can just go to this website http://cooltext.com/. There are a lot of designs you can choose from on this website. Follow the steps below on how to create logo in cooltext.

Once you are in their site, you can choose any design you want. For this blog, I choose the  "Iceberg" design as shown below.
Note: when you change the design, it will reset everything

When directed to a new window, type-in your text in the “Logo Text” box, then select the font, size, color, opacity and the pattern for your background. You can also change the shadow's type, color and opacity.  The alignment and measurement of your logo.  Here's where you need to input the size of your blog.

Once satisfied with how it looks, you can now download your logo. If you want to add more texts or images later on to your logo, choose the file format .PSD (Photoshop w/Layers).  If not, then the  file format PNG w/Transparency, then click create logo.

You will now be directed to the a new window, where you can either download or edit your logo. If you choose to download the logo, it will automatically open in Photoshop with layer.
You can always go back to the site if you want to create more texts
I hope you find this somewhat easy and useful.

How to Make Your Blog Looks Like a Website?

To those who are just starting to blog and do not want to pay for the hosting and domain yet, this is very helpful.  I know it's not much but at least you will be able to play around before you spend.

I have made a lot of searches to find the best way to make my blog looks like a website, and with the trials and errors using different blogs, I have come up with these simple steps. 

Create, design and improve a new page that you will set as your new main page.  Make sure that the number of posts per page is set to 1.  To set the number of posts per page, go to your dashboard, click Layout>> Edit at the bottom-right of "Blog Posts". 
 

When a new window appears, set the number of posts to 1 and then "Save".  Click "Save Arrangement" just to make sure all your changes will be saved.

Go to "Settings" >>“Search Preference".

Click "New Redirect" on the "Custom Directs". You'll be given an option here to redirect your main page to a new one.

On the blank box beside "From", type in /. Input the URL of your new homepage at the blank box beside "To".  On the blank box beside "From", type in /. Input the URL of your new homepage at the blank box beside "To".  

Open your published new home page, then copy  the specific page address, as shown below (highlighted) then go back to your settings and paste it in the box beside "To".

It will look like this now. Click "Save" then "Save Changes".  You are almost done!

Now, the last thing you need to do is to hide the blogger's default homepage. Click on the "Layout" again. Then edit your "Home" navigation. 

At the pages to show, unchecked the blogger's default home page then click save. 
 
When you open your blog, viola! You now have your personalized main page.

Capones Island is located in the town of San Antonio, Zambales.  This island is well known for the old lighthouse that was built with just bare hand during the Spanish era.  I never had a chance to see this lighthouse when we get there, but I heard that it has an old dramatic and cinematic image over the cliffs.
