This ten-day course takes you in-depth into the free customization options available to WordPress.com bloggers, so you can create a blog that perfectly reflects your personality and focus.

Learn to find and understand all the details of your theme. Delve into how headers and titles are displayed, and create a totally unique custom header. Coordinate and change your background, and learn to work with widgets — including creating custom widgets and using widget visibility to control exactly which widgets appear where.
