Tuesday Toot - Favicon

I recently joined Blogamama and today, I received my first e-mail from Blogamama herself - Marie. She's talking about joining them in "Tuesday Toot". I thought to myself, "What in the world is "Tuesday Toot"? Should I say "Woot! or cry like an owl and say "Hoot!" Tuesday Toot sounds like umm ... ewww! There's always a first and this is my first post as a "Blogamama" ... woot! I searched the site how did this "Tuesday Toot" originate and found that it kicked off early this year and Tuesday Toot came from nowhere significant. But I agree with Marie that it's quite catchy. Anyways basically, every Tuesday is a day for Blogamamas to post an accomplishment done especially as a Mom. What a better way for us Moms to celebrate weekly than by "Tooting Out Own Horn"! Nonetheless, celebration isn't limited to achievements as a Mom but also success on any other role we play in life. Moreover, it can also be a day to post other people's accomplishment - kids', husband's, friend's. So, what's the reason to toot my own horn at the moment? hmmm... mmmm... lalalala. (sigh) To be honest, I'm the queen of procrastination. If not for the Blogamama e-mail, I wouldn't update my blog. :P A few people (maybe very very few) know that I've been busy the past week tweaking and changing and tweaking my own blogger template. My recent discovery is "Favicon". I just did this last night. If you are Firefox user, you should see that tiny icon next to my blog's URL and on the tab. If you are IE user (sigh), double click the icon to see the favicon. Hey it rhymes! I'm quite happy with it especially after seeing that it worked! Hence, this is my Tuesday Toot, woohoo! Here's what my favicon looks like if you can't see it: ( yes, that's my own pic) To make your own Favicon: Follow Blog U's instruction Happy Tuesday Tooting!

Tweaking Blogger Template

As previously mentioned, here's how I tweaked my blogger template and I'd say they are some of the best solutions that hackers have done for bloggers: (I'm talking about "good guys' hack" not those hackers who steal IDs and do unimaginable things). First and foremost important rule to remember when messing about with your own template: DOWNLOAD the original so you can easily get back to it when tweaking doesn't work out or you get lost and want to start again. 1. "Peek-a-boo View" - I love this one because it bores me to death if I have to browse a very looong article and will take ages to get to the next one. The purpose of peek-a-boo hack solves that. "Summary of post" is shown to let visitors preview and browse through the titles of each posts and decide which one to "read more". When "read more" is clicked the full post appears on the same page... peek-a-boo! Click HERE for Peek-a-boo View instructions. 2. "Recent Comments" - I think this is a charmer. The number of comments and characters can be easily customized. Follow these steps to create your own "recent comments. 3. "Blogroll Dropdown" - I did a search for this so that all my favourite blogs/sites are listed and it doesn't occupy too much space. Here's where I found the easiest way to do it. Tedious but worthy. 4. "Label Cloud" - Here's how to make your labels (or categories) pretty in sight and, again, not occupying a loooong space on the sidebar: follow these steps. 5. "Change Template Background" - Wouldn't you want your own blog to have a personal touch by adding up your own choice of image as a background? Here's a complete guide to change your template background. There's more out there on the web waiting for you to discover the magic of tweaking. Meanwhile, have fun tweaking your own blogs with these 'hacks'. Kudos to blog tweakers!
