Last week we asked you if you use a custom start orb. Thank you to all who participated; here’s what you said:

32% do use a custom start orb, 56% don’t, and 12% are not sure what a custom start orb is.

Given that so many of you do use a custom start orb, I’m going to put together a post with links to custom start orbs (like our Wallpaper, Icon, Font posts etc.) so keep and eye out for that in the near future.

Here’s some resources to get you on your way with customizing your start orb:
