Hey there! What was that site where you can make up your own background for Twitter and blogs and such?

I've tried Tweetbacks and FreeTwitterDesign so far. Tweetbacks was pretty plain jane unless you wanted to pay. FreeTwitterDesign was so-so. I found the quality a bit lower than I wanted. But it was free and I could change things up with it--I liked that aspect. I used it for this background: http://www.twitter.com/kidsplay. There are others as well if you Google "free Twitter backgrounds." Really, it depends what you want. If you don't mind a stock background--there are a ton out there! If you have a blog/website/logo I do recommend you trying to incorporate it into your Twitter background so you have that visual branding going on. You know, prepare now for the day when you are a published author. :biggrin:

I love connecting with and helping other AQCers outside this forum as well. You can find me all over the place!

If you are looking for more about writing, you may find my blog helpful, as well as my Twitter feed:

Thanks, Jean! Sorry that I made you write all of that again. Last night was craziness at my abode.

Tom. You are killing me. And what do elderberries smell like?

What I do is find cool images on Tumblr or Pinterest, download them and then upload them as jpegs for my Twitter and Blog backgrounds. There are so many cool images just floating around on the Internet free for the taking and it's not copyright infringement if it's just on a personal Internet site. Try google image searching for the sort of thing you want and it may just pop right up.
