Welcome to Cat Spills the Beans!

Hi, my name is Cat. I originally blog on 4 Nuts in a Nutshell, but after getting email after email from my readers asking for blog design tips, I decided to start this little blog to help them out.

Now, I have no schooling in design. I've taken no classes in HTML or Java Script. I started out knowing nothing! So most of this stuff, I have learned on my own from trial and error, or finding bits and pieces on other blogs. One thing I hate is, that I can't find everything I need on one website -- so for you, my faithful "Nuts" readers, I am going to compile all that I have learned and share it with you.

Now, when I was starting out, I would find something on a blog I liked, and would email the owner and ask how they did it. Out of all the many emails I sent, not one emailed me back. Is blog design some kind of secret? Maybe. I know there are many out there who make money doing it. But isn't a little tip here and there okay? Obviously it isn't. So here I am, "Spilling the Beans" on some of the secrets of blog design.

If you ever have any questions, or would like me to do a particular tutorial, just send me an email at nutsinanutshell(at)gmail(dot)com.

Hope you enjoy this!
