SOS – Help Save Italian Bloggers

The following text is from the ‘ammazzablog’ site, which was created by Italian bloggers who are extremely worried, as I have written before, that Italy’s politicians are trying to stifle freedom of speech in Italy.

Magazines Are Dead, Hello Web

One of Blog from Italy’s aims is to tell the world about the good things you will find in Italy. Good things like Calabria for example, where fellow blogger Cherrye runs an bed and breakfast.

Want to Modify Your WordPress Theme?

Miss Expatria said she liked Blog from Italy’s new look, so I thought I’d write and tell you about two tools which I use to help me tinker with the ‘styling’ of this site. If all you want to do is change some of the cascading style sheet stuff, in terms of colours and text […]

Things to do. Done!
