Recently I ran into an issue. I needed to add some custom styling to Twitter’s timeline widget. The problem I ran into is that Twitter only provides two styles; Light and Dark. For my needs that wasn’t enough, I needed a custom background as well as some modification to text color, width and borders. This presented some problems but I ended up coming with a solution of my own that I feel is nice and straight forward.
Social media is all the rage these days, with Facebook being the second most trafficked website in the world currently. And with MySpace and Twitter both in the top 15 websites as well it is easy to see why tapping into these huge media outlets is important for any content published on the web.
I decided that it was time to focus on my personal website more and that I really wanted to be able to have a blog that I could post to. The conundrum became whether or not I would write my own blogging software or find an open source version out there are on the market that did exactly what I wanted.
