Hello! Today we'll be looking at some more blog designing tips, plus I'll have one or two free stuff for you to use! Oh, yes, and tomorrow, I'll be posting the last DIY for DIY Week! So stay tuned tomorrow!

So let's get started!!

Blog 'Lovin

Many blogs have the little bloglovin' thing to follow them right? Well, a month or two ago there was a big fuss about whether Google Friend Connect aka. the Followers gadget, was going to shut down, but obviously it didn't. :{ So then people said that Google Reader would shut down, but it didn't for me. So I don't know, but lot's of people got it and you can too! Go here.

Buttons and Grab Codes 

You know when you go everywhere and you see buttons with those little grab code thingys?  Well, for like a long time I would be so puzzled and mad because I couldn't find out how to make it work for me! Well I finally I found out how to do it, and so I am going to share with you how to do it!

First, create your button. It's very simple. You can use photo editors such as Pic-monkey.  
 Second, go to this website, and Bingo! You have your own grab button!  

HTML/CSS

First thing, do NOT freak out. I was scared too when I began, but now it's all on easy piece of cake! You'll learn gradually and learn to like HTML and CSS.  So what is this? Well, basically it adds much more feeling ans spark to your blog by just doing little things like making all the links go italics when you hover over it!

Some FREE codes for you to use (with instructions) 

 Italics

1. Log into your blogger account and click no the blog you want to edit.
2. Click on "template".
3. Click on "customize".
4. Go to "advanced".
5. Click on "CSS".
6. Paste this code in the box:


a:hover { color: normal; font-style: italic;
text-decoration: none; }


Save it and see what it does!! 

Get a Crosshair as Cursor 

1. Log into your blogger account and click no the blog you want to edit.
2. Go to "Layout" 
3. Click "Add A Gadget"
4. Note: this can be anywhere, it's not going to really affect it where you have the gadget
5. Past this code in the box:




Save and see how it works!

Change Link Color when Clicking 

1. Log into your blogger account and click no the blog you want to edit.
2. Go to "Layout" 
3. Click "Add A Gadget"
4. Note: this can be anywhere, it's not going to really affect it where you have the gadget
5. Past this code in the box:

 

Now for this one, you can change the font name, (where it says  verdana) and you can also change the colors (where it says red and gold) and the font size (where it says 9)

Save and see how it works!!



OK, those should keep you busy for a bit!!
