This past week I was on Spring Break. As you can see from the pics it wasn't much of a SPRING break. It seriously snowed several times!!!
While I was bundled up in my house I learned 3 Techie Tips that I want to share with you. Many of you may know this already, but I figured that since I didn't know maybe others didn't either. So here they are:
1) Have you ever wondered how people who leave comments on blogs leave a link to their blog? Yeah, me too! When I was at the Spring Blogger Meet-Up last weekend Hilary from Rockin' Teacher Materials gave me the HTML code to get it done. So here it is:
Just change the words highlighted in green to fit your needs.
If you do it correctly it will look like this:
2) Here is another HTML doozy. How do I get my social media buttons on the sidebar of my blog? I NEEDED to know this information. So I called on my good friend google and found this blog post with this super simple video from YouTube. I got the cute little icons from Barbara @ Ruby Slippers Blog Designs.
3) I have had an Instagram account for awhile now and it is kind of sad in the follower department due to my lack of advertising for it. I found this awesome widget from Statigram. It was so easy to grab the html code and set it up.
~Go to Statigram and sign into your Instagram account.
~Click Promote at the top
~Choose Photo Gallery Widget
~Customize it for your blog
~Grab the Code
~Go to Blogger Layout
~Add A Gadget (in your sidebar)
~Paste the HTML Code
~Save and Preview
See wasn't that simple!
I hope your Spring Break was/is warmer than mine has been and you found these tips helpful!
