Poser in Provo

Dear Hollywood,
How to you add cool interfaces like this one to your blog? How do you get to be so witty and popular? How do you find time to give to your children when as a career blogger? Please impart wisdom, oh wise blogging God!
- Poser in Provo

Dear Poser,
First of all let me recommend you step away from the computer and take a deep breath. Now do as Stuart Smalley says and repeat after me, "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me." There! Now don't you feel better?

I happen to know and love your blog and wouldn't change a thing about it, but if you must, surf the internet and look at other blog designs and content. If you see an idea you like, figure out how to do it or email the web designer and supplicate them for the precious html. I begged the smooth internet form you filled out to email me off of Scribbit who has a phenomenal blog herself. I'm also a frequent visitor at htmlgoodies.com to learn basic website manipulation techniques.

Unfortunately, the level of my wittiness and traffic is inversely proportionate to the amount of time I spend with my children. So if you think I'm drop dead hysterical one day, then my kids probably spent the day locked in their bedroom screaming. And Poser, if you call me "oh wise blogging God" again I'm going to be sick all over my holy keyboard.

Glad the form is working for you.

You don't even have to ask for people for their HTML files. You can outright steal and plagarize them. For Windows Users: in firefox hit "ctrl-U" and in IE view>source (if you don't see a menu bar, right click one of the upper browser bars and select "menu bar").

Um. . . no! I've never done that.

I can never figure out all that view source stuff as well as just getting the pure code from the designer. Is that a no-no by the way to steal from the source code? Why else would it be available? Good tip for us ethically gray people, Janell!
