Examples ↓

By clicking “Edit CSS” on the Micro.blog design page, you can add custom CSS to modify different elements of the theme. Modify the sizing, spacing, coloring, etc of any element in the theme. The most common change is to modify the color scheme, but there are many more things you can do.
