Hey . . .did you notice my blog list makeover this morning yet? I haven't quite completed it yet and I'm having trouble with a couple of the links .. . sorry Marg and Becky, but overall I'm liking the way this works. It seems to have trouble refreshing itself and perhaps as new posts are published it will perform.
If working the way it is designed, I can see quickly who has posted something new on their blog and so can you.
Maybe I'm the last kid on the block to know this was available but I'm going to run through the process quickly so that you can too have a blog list that updates quickly.
I realize this only works for blog .. . so the rest of you. .. put on your pedometers and come back tomorrow. . .
First of all .. go into the dashboard.
Read what is new in Blogger Buzz and then click on draft blogger.
When you do that you are now into the site where they are making all the nifty ideas for our blogs and testing them out.
See the blue B sign instead of the usual orange one?
From this point, click on Layout as you usually would to make changes in your blog.
Look what is says at the top.
Instead of Add a page element .. .
Add a gadget.
Go ahead .. click on it.
See? there is the new Blog List.
Pretty self explanatory from here.
For the life of me .. .
I can't figure out why two of mine will not update nor give a glimpse into their post.
I even talked to Marg on the phone (check her blog .. . )yesterday to see if any of her settings were unusual.
We weren't able to find any.
So, I left a comment with the nice people at Blogger Buzz and hopefully they can help me sort it out.
for today this is how it is.
Don't you just love that we can switch this one detail of our lives with a few clicks?
I added this gadget too.
I was amazed at how well it picked up certain posts for me.
I typed in different items that I know I've posted about ..
No more searching for my own posts.
I would think that this gadget would be awesome for everyone to add.
I know I've spent some long stretches looking to find a post in someones blog that has archives that are by date only.
Okay . .. I hope that was helpful.
I do hope you all have a wonderful day .. . pedometers on and breakfast eaten . .(preferrably something healthy).
