Layout Resources

I am so excited to finally have this blog up and running! For a while there, I had been thinking about it and planning it in my head but I felt like I didn't have anything to say. With the future looking rather busy and bright for The Antipodean Man and I, I thought there was no time like the present to start a new blog and get cracking with sharing some of my stories from my life as an Australian Expat!

One thing I always love doing online is collecting resources related to Web Design and when I designed the first version of this blog, I decided that I'd make sure I kept all of my resources pinned on my Blogging Board at Pinterest so I could remember where I got certain graphic elements, which fonts I used and other tutorials I used to customize this Blogger template.

Body - Georgia
Header - Bebas & Raleway
Post Headers & Navigation - Raleway
Sidebar Headers - Ribbon

Header Squiggle - IROCKSOWHAT
Social Media Buttons - August Empress

Webfonts & Typekit by Puglypixel

I'm also working on a launching a little side project, helping people to customize their Blogger blogs, totally free of charge, but only time will tell if I will be able to keep up with that. However, if this is something you might be interested in, please do drop me a comment with your email address and I'll see what I can do for you.


  1. I often feel the nagging desire to personalise my blog but then when I try to get down to it I find myself in a mess of numbers and digits with no real idea what I'm doing or how to achieve what should be (and is described as) simple and straight forward. Sigh…
    Enlisting the help of someone more tech savvy (like you) would be an immense help.
    Let me know if you're ever up for the challenge :)
