Self improvement seems to be a common theme that has been brought up on many of the blogs I read, and it has had me thinking – which, if any, area of my life do I enjoy and have some basic skills that could use improving?

For a while now I have wanted to have the ability to design a beautiful blog, and make tweaks to pretty up my existing one, so the course being run by August Empress caught my eye.
