Today is my first day of blogging. I created the blog account a long time ago but never really got time to actually edit/configure/use it. My friends demanded ;) me to create my own blog. And finally here it comes. I hope I'll enjoy this journey along with my other fella bloggers.
As soon as I started with my blog, the first thing I decided to do was to check-out any handy little tricks/usage methods for easy blogging (for beginners ;) ). Here's a few:
- How to center-align some text:
