I had a question on how to mimic the appearance of and create a similar look to how their posts look “raised” off the page.

I built a Custom CSS which will allow you to manage and modify each part of the shadow portion and the spacing from the edges for your text. I did increase the spacing as I felt it made the overall visual appeal better than having text to the edge.

.site-main {
    /* Change the Shadow Using the Below */
    box-shadow: 2px 2px 6px -2px #9c9c9c;
    /* Added padding allowing for changing each location as your site needs */
    padding-left: 25px;
    padding-right: 25px;
    padding-bottom: 25px;
    padding-top: 25px;

For those who need help understanding the box shadow above here is how they different values are used. You can tweak these to fit your need and if you want a specific look to the shadow it can get you there.

box-shadow: h-offset v-offset blur spread color;

Once this is added to your Custom CSS Just make sure to save in the upper right hand corner and go back to your posts to check it out!

I love technology, I have plenty of technical side experience but never really thought of blogging as a way to earn an income. With everything that has gone on in the last couple years and the instability of the job markets I started to learn how to blog and build affiliate niche sites to add more income channels to give me the chance to break free from the financial chains that bind me and find real freedom!
