BLOG BUTTONS FOR DUMMIES ( blog face lift )
A new look for my blog!
As some of you have noticed I had a face lift - well my blog did anyway.
This is quite literally as good as it's ever going to get - because I cannot - absolutely cannot spend another 2 minutes on this endeavor - I'm exhausted - I'm frustrated - I have a huge headache - and I am
not going to admit to ANYONE how long it took me to update my blog - you wouldn't believe it even if
I did..........................( let's just say " what a difference a day makes - 24 little hours " ) almost!
That I was able to accomplish even the little I did is flabbergasting because I am a complete idiot when it
comes to these things ( these things being anything to do with a computer and html )
Picture if you will - a person walking into an operating room - and trying to remove kidneys with nothing more than a laptop to guide them through it or a person who's never seen the inside of a car - trying to
change the ignition - first of all it was terrifying ( don't judge - it doesn't take much to scare me )
secondly it was complicated - to the point of almost crying 15 times - and thirdly it just left me feeling incredibly stupid.
If at first you don't succeed - try try try try try try try try try try try try try try try try try try try try try and
try try try try try try try try try try try try try again........................
I worked for hours on trying to create a button - it doesn't matter how many hours it took ( a lot ) because
I really should have been able to do it in a couple of minutes.
After searching all kind of sites - and doing what they swore would work, I'd keep coming back and trying it
and no button - over and over again.
Until I found this site My Cool Realm and 5 minutes later I had a button -
After creating and uploading my button - I typed in 3 pieces of information - and presto - my code was generated which I simply copied and pasted onto html/ java in a new " gadget ". This is one of the best help sites I've ever encountered in blogland - they should call it " buttons for dummies " really!
If you need a " button " and are as inept as I - PLEASE visit the site - instead of spending all day banging your head on to your desk. Simply click on the below
So.............any of you need a kidney removed?
I'm quite confident now that I could do it...............
( I don't own a laptop - so bring your own please )
First patient gets a HUGE discount.
And I'm contemplating giving myself a real facelift - how hard can it be?
Bet I could do it quicker than it took me to do this!
A little tuck here - a little clip there - a little lift everywhere - sew it all up and voila!!!
Have a good wknd everyone!
