Blog and Pony Show
Today’s version of Works for Me Wednesday is a reversal, in that I need to know what works for you.
See, I want to make my blog better. Tell me the coolest thing you’ve done with your blog, especially how to do that little signature thing, etc. Don’t forget typepad is my host, sometimes it makes a difference in what one can and more importantly, can’t do!
Also I need all you bloggin’ friends to let me know if you want to exchange some link love. I’d love to add you to my blogroll, if you’ll add me to yours.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Audra Totally uncool signature……help!
Audra, I will add you to my blog roll baby! Come on over! As for all of the fun little quirky stuff, have you taken a look at Blog Coach? She always has good stuff on there for adding to your blog. BTW, I have no idea how to do a lot of this stuff, I am a newbie and had a blog designer do it. I am reading up on a lot!
I got my cool little signature thing from:
I use typepad too…seems more difficult to change some things, but I think the good outweihs the difficult. I used the mylivesignature too, I just put the code in word, and paste it (click the “A” in the bar above my post) everytime. I don’t even know if I do that correectly, but it gets the job done.
I think I used the same site for the signature. But, I couldn’t find a color/style I liked. So, I made one just so I could see what general size it should be, and then made a new one in Photoshop. 🙂
Try this out, Scrapblog.com it’s easy and fun!
Hey Audra! Check out this tutorial – http://www.thecutestblogontheblock.com/secret.php?id=8 – on the sig thing! They’ve got more tutes too i f you browse their site.
Your blog is already awesome…great idea to interact. Let me ponder a bit.. 🙂
I am so glad I meandered over to your blog… I love writing too and appreciate your words of encouragement. As far as blogs go, I consider mine a work in progress. Always trying to pick up new tips and improve. You’ve got an awesome blog and most importantly are writing honest entries that share your personality. I can see YOU shining through! I’m going to try to add a signature to my blog today using the suggestions here… and last but not least, I’d love to post you on my blog list. I think we have some things in common. Blessings!!!
I got a really cute (free!) background at http://www.thecutestblogontheblock.com/index.php
but you can’t have ads with their service. Doesn’t bother me, I don’t have enough readers to generate money, and my writing isn’t for that purpose anyway, just a great hangout for Moms. I didn’t know where to get a signature either, so I copy and paste mine in from Word. Not like I’m ANY authority on how to do this (I’m new too and in it for fun) but your page is a little busy, my eye wasn’t sure where to go. Thanks for asking great questions on a WFMW! Blessings, Whitney
Hi Audra! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yes, I live in Mexico and it’s the neatest experience. About your backwards question, one of the coolest things I’ve done on my blog is to have a “Top Commentators” widget. I’ve noticed that people try to compete to see who can comment the most. It’s too cool!
Oooh, this is right up my alley! I’ve been all over the internet finding things I could do to my blog to make it look better, more fun & just an all-around more enjoyable place for me.
I don’t know anything about typepad, but here are just a few places I have been…
FREE backgrounds @ cutest blog on the block and LeeLou
FREE signatures @ my live signature
Blogger hints & help @ http://www.bloggingbasics101.com/
I’m all about FREE – and there is A LOT out there. ENJOY!!
Great question. I want to know how to do this too, thanks for asking.
I have to say the best thing I did for my blog was meet another blogger with graphic design abilities. We traded cooking tips (from me) for blog goodies (header, signature, buttons, etc…)
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your book suggestions, I really appreciate it!
Hmm. Less is more on the graphic stuff in my opinion.
As for tips… I think you’re doing the most important thing already because you are constantly engaging others in community through comments, links, and good writing.
In the end, that’s what matters the most.
You have a great blog here! Looks like you received some great tips! I have added a new banner. I haven’t settled on a stylish signature, right now I think I am ok with just xoBeau, plain and simple.
Hey there, Audra.
I can’t answer any of your questions.
I wish I could, but I just wanted to stop by to say ‘hey’. And that you have been in my blogroll for awhile. *wink*
Take care…Look forward to seeing the new, snazzy signature. When you figure it out, let me know. Mine’s a dud, too.
Dog it! (That sounds Kindergarten, doesn’t it?) I missed the revered WFMW! What a cool thing to ask, though! I’ll tell you…I’m lovin’ it. I love love love the ocean. I told you that, right?
I like pics. I know many people are protective when it comes to pics of themselves and their families. Your blog pic is beautiful, by the way. Anyway, I like pics woven throughout posts. Can’t always add them and don’t always need to, but when you can…..I think it’s cool.
Thank you so much for your comments and concern for me during Gustav’s visit.
Power up now! Praise God! I’ll be checking out that giveaway soon….
