Spring Break Reading Challenge Activity #4

(I finally got this friggin icon in the right spot.)

Here is the fourth activity over at

Today's task is :

Create a post explaining what it is you would like to be able to do on your blog.

-Is there something you really want to create, but don't know how?
-Would you like your blog design to be different?
-What about organization? Is there something about the arrangement you want to change? If ---you feel comfortable enough with the blog use you, feel free to take this time to make some changes and tell us what you did.

I would just like to be able to get my pictures where I want them and not where the blog decides they should go. I would also like to be able to use animated widgets and come up with a unique design for my blog. I also want to figure out how make a link without acually using the link. This is still new to me, a work in process. I think I need to find a "Blogging for Dummies" manual.

Constructive advise and tips are always welcome. (Telling me to shove my blog someplace where the sun don't shine, does not qualify as constructive advise.)


  1. Oh, I like the non-animated look! I think that a simple, dramatic look is good, rather than a cluttered, excessively busy look.

    It's been a long, long time since I was on blogger, so I'm afraid I can't be very helpful (or helpful at all) re: the pictures. :)

  2. Dana ... You're gonna LOVE Karen's post over at ... She tells you a great trick to working with the graphic placement that as a coder, I had not thought of!

    As for the linking thing, if you can describe in more detail, maybe I can help!

    And for the design thing ... it's still in beta mode ... but Blogger in Draft does have a new template designer that's pretty cool. I used it over at my personal blog last night to redesign the whole thing. But I like your current design ;-) (If you want to check it out, the link for information is on my personal blog.)


  3. I have the same problem with inserting pictures in Blogger.

  4. I wish you luck! I have terrible techy problems with this stuff. If you can do it, you officially go onto my most admired list!
