Ceramic Tile Table Project Tips

Are you on a budget but want to redo a table in ceramic tile? First, find a table for your tile project. The ideal places to start looking for free tiles are at yard sales or thrift stores (Tip 1). The next best thing is to find discontinued tiles that have been marked down at a home improvement or tile store (Tip 2). When my husband and I purchased our fixer-upper house, I found a huge pile of tiles in various sizes and colors. I call that F-R-E-E tile! Free with a mortgage would be more like it. A small kitchen table with four chairs also came with the fixer upper. The only drawback is I have never worked with tile before this project. But who says I can't learn? So I browsed through Country Living magazines (Tip 3 - browse through your favorite magazines to find your style) and found two tile tables - one almost exactly like my kitchen table - and a small square tile table. At the library the mags are free to browse through or check out (Tip 4). Go to your favorite bookstore (Tip 5) - browsing mags is free there, too. Or, find them for $1 or $1.50 each at an antique store (Tip 6).

When you get your tiles, practice by laying the tiles on the table in the design that delights you (Tip 8). 
That's the end of the first workday. Our workdays tend to happen on the weekends since we have day jobs. Visit again next weekend to follow this project.

Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
