I cannot believe how fast the week has come and gone. It has been so much fun to join in all the blogger talk and I am already looking forward to doing it all over again next year!

It is Day 5 of Armchair BEA and today's topic is the following:
The Future of Book Blogging/Ask the Experts
If you have any burning questions for your fellow participants about book blogging, now is the time to ask.
I have only been blogging for five months, so I definitely still have a lot of questions. For right now, I'm pretty happy with the content of my posts, though I do know there is a LOT of room for improvements - which I am working on slowly.
My concerns at the moment are mainly about the look of my blog. I always worry if readers can read everything okay, or if my blog is maybe too dark. Also, I would love to play with my layout a little bit, but I have no idea where to start.
Are there any websites you like to go to for design advice - for the blog layout in general as well as for individual posts - which are fairly easy to understand? I'm not tech savvy at all when it comes to coding and all that.
One other thing I can't seem to figure out is how to add tracking to my blog, so I can check my stats a little bit better and more thoroughly. I tried adding the free Google one, but I can't, for the life of me, figure out where to place the code for it. Like I said, I'm not tech savvy whatsoever. ;)
I don't want to overdo it with tons and tons of questions, but I do have one more.
How do you link your facebook page to your blog - or is the other way around? I have tried it a few times, but I can't seem to make it work. Maybe I'm just too stupid to do it, haha. Honestly though, I would love to connect the two, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Well, I guess my questions aren't so much about actual "book blogging", so maybe I should add one more question.
I'm sure everybody has times where they just don't feel like writing anything. How do you motivate yourself during those phases? What gets you out of a writing funk?
Thank you so much in advance for answering my questions! I really, really appreciate how helpful and supportive this blogger community is. I am so proud to be a part of it!
Thank you all and I hope you all had as much fun and excitement as I had during this past Armchair BEA week!
