  3. Nice! Putting an icon or banner is really easy to do in Blogspot. I was actually looking around for nice graphics for Twitter backgrounds when I found this post.

    Now that you mentioned it, I should also go on to search for cute icons as well. I'll put one on my blog so that so people can also see how beautiful my Twitter background is.
