Haven't done anything with my own MySpace (due to lack of time!), but I'm now creating one for one of our clients, in the hope of driving more people to their website - somehow I managed to suggest it before anyone else picked up on the buzz word of the mo (Social Networking), but predictably the guy who owns the site seized on it instantly.

So, I get the whole thing of how you mod your space, and I'm looking at layouts I can adapt to a suitable design, but... here's the thing. We've told them that they need to use the blog, but I'm now wondering... how easy is it to mod the look of the blog? I guess it'll be on CSS, but is it straightforward, or is it quirky like the modding of the space?

MySpace does get some use to, if you are going to do your own skin, if you have a look at the Motion And Heart MySpace, that skin is one I did myself.

To learn, I got a free theme, with all of the adevrtising blurb, then took the code, looked at it, then just modified it, sounds tricky, but if I can do it.... anyone can

Yip, that's basically what I'm going to do I've found a free one with a slightly different layout, so I think I'll design something based around that. Might have to combine code from a couple of layouts.  

Thing is, that the Blog bit seems to be different, wasn't sure if it's as moddable (is that even a word?). I know the clients well enough to know that I have to present a visual of how all the bits and bobs will look or they'll expect it to all be the same, and if that's not possible then I'll never hear the end of it!
