Blogumus: a flash animated label cloud for Blogger! "Blogumus" is an Flash based tag cloud widget which uses scripts converted from Roy Tanck's WP Cumulus plugin for Wordpress. I fell in love with Roy's original Cumulus plugin when I saw it, and simply had to learn how to convert this for use in Blogger powered blogs. The result is the widget you can see in action at the top of this post. Hover your mouse over the Flash object to see the animation begin. In this post, I'll explain how you can add Blogumus to your own Blogger layout with ease! Update #2 (27th April 2010) Due to hosting issues, Blogumus has stopped working for those who had previously installed using these instructions. Unfortunately, this does mean you'll have to reinstall your Blogumus widget or change the URLs to the swfobject.js and tagcloud.js files in your template code in order to ensure your widget works properly again (new installations should work just fine). And replace them with the following URLs: Sincere apologies for the inconvenience this may have caused!

How to Use Depth of Field "Cooper" captured by Terri Cage (Click Image to See More From Terri Cage) The term refers to the amount of detail in the photograph that is in focus. A typical landscape photograph will will show detail over a long distance, all of which will be in focus and recognizable by the viewer. A head and shoulders portrait will usually work best if only the face is in sharp focus. Two questions usually pop up here: Why is this a good thing? How do you achieve it? O.K., first things first. Being able to produce this effect at will is very handy and can turn a mediocre or boring photograph into something much more attractive. The portrait example is very different. What we want to do is focus on the main subject in the scene. This can all be manipulated by the photographer to suit the particular image. How do we achieve this effect? There are two things you have control over that affect depth of field when using an SLR camera. the focal length of the lens the aperture setting Aperture setting

Apply different layout/styling to static pages Finally Blogger has come up with the much awaited static pages feature. Blogger simply refer to them as Pages. You can create up to 10 static pages, perfect for your About Me and Contact pages. However, a Page will look just like homepage or any other page. Okay let’s start with the tutorial, I. Go Dashboard > Design > Edit HTML. II. Your elements’ Ids and classes maybe different from the ones given in the code above. As you can see an element, be it a division, a section or a widget is assigned an ID and/or a class. Update: There is an easier method of finding Blogger widget and section Id’s. For example, if you want to remove the “Popular Posts” widget, all you have to do is add #HTML4 to the selector list; To remove the the whole lower left sidebar (which holds the Popular Posts and Labels widgets), add #sidebar2 to the list. III. (added Oct. 2010) Using the static_page conditional tag as explained above will apply the styling on all static pages. Enjoy!

DESIGN The Blog Welcome to the Blog, an ever changing collection of my picks from across the web, the art and design world or anything really that peaks my interest. I update my blog as often as possible, so remember to bookmark this page and check back from time to time. Honest Logos Instantly recognizable, satirically re-imagined. Ok, so let's be fair, one bite of a burger won’t cause diabetes and one glass of beer won’t cause obesity; but as the advertising industry shows positives only, so here Hertz has gone to the opposite extreme and focused only on the negatives. Star Wars Blueprints I came across these great designs by A2K Design recently and being a huge Star Wars fan, I loved them and thought I'd share them with you guys. May the force be with you! Split Portraits These wonderfully creative photographs are the brainchild of Ulric Collette, an art director out of Quebec city. He combines the portraits of Two people who are related, to demonstrate the similarities between them.

Od niej zależy czy dany wpis będzie popularny czy też nie. Jednym ze sposobów wzbogacenia Bloggera o możliwość dodawania wpisów do wykopu jest mój gadżet Podziel się. W tym poście przedstawię drugą możliwość. Dodałem dodatkowo umiejscowienie ikony (prawa strona - <div style='float: right;'>) oraz zamieniłem kilka znaków, które powodują błędy Bloggera.

So I decided to find out which popular sites are powered by Blogger to build upon the list curated in 2008 in order to find the most popular Blogspot sites (including those which use custom domains). After gathering a huge amount of links to sites hosted on Blogger (whittled down to 350 for the final analysis) I set about scoring and ranking each site according to the following criteria: PagerankInbound linksAlexa RankFacebook sharesTwitter MentionsGoogle+1sGoogle Reader feed subscribers With the exception of Pagerank, these sites were scored in relation to each other, with each element scored on a scale of 1-350. Alexa ranking was scored first as this value is unique to each website. Pagerank for each site was allocated as Pagerank*10, where 0 is the lowest score and 100 (PR10) was potentially the highest. 1.

Labels Categories and Tags If you take a look at the source code for your blog, you'll probably see several references of the rel='nofollow' tag. This tag was originally created to prevent search engines from indexing links in order to reduce spam. However, this simply doesn't seem to work, even as a deterrent to would be spammers. Spam still exists, and if anything the problem of spam is worse than ever. But the most annoying thing about the "nofollow" tag is this: it prevents legitimate, and helpful links from being indexed by three of the top search engines: Google, Yahoo and MSN. There is something we can do about this: remove the "nofollow" tags! Why I have removed "nofollow" from my blog After much consideration, I have now removed all instances of rel="nofollow" from my blog template. I believe that it's only fair to reward those who provide useful and informative comments with a proper link back to their blog, and the same goes for those who link to my posts too!
