Eeeee! I just updated to a paid LJ account. O.o :~)

Ok, all you clever people - how do I make a personalised journal? Background, mood icons etc.

Custom Mood theme help here http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=64 It took me several days to do my theme between hunting the pics, cropping, and uploading.

If you friend fellow artist lycanmystik_22 she has the worlds best "How to Customize" tutorial here http://www.livejournal.com/users/lycanmystik_22/47289.html

Showing complete 38-year-old cluelessness. What is "FLW"? For the life of me I can't come up with the acronym.

*stay up late, and drink lots of red bull* just fiddle around with it, you'll get it. :-)

Mood is complicated, lots of code.
Background not so complicated, just use the FAQ browser in main LJ,
Icons, just upload 15 of your faves and replace them occationally.

Personalizing the journal and making your own background isn't too hard - more time consuming than anything else. If you're anything like me, once you've decided on a journal style, then you'll piddle around with the colors, the wording, and the pictures you use. It took me a couple of days of fine-tuning before I settled on the look of my journal.

As for mood icons, it's a bit more extensive. I'm currently working on my own, but here's where you go to learn how: http://www.livejournal.com/doc/html/moodicons.html#diytheme#diytheme

Good luck, and have fun! :)

Uh, by mood icons... did you mean user pictures? I wasn't sure, so if the stuff I linked you too isn't what you wanted, sorry 'bout that!

I only just updated to paid as well, so far all i've done are a few icons and my mood pictures! Still haven't figured out the whole customized part yet... Good luck with it though!

When I got a paid account I just cheated and went to the S2 style...easy to use...

I still haven't figured out the mood theme things yet though.
