Its time to get the damn show on the road. I’ve almost been running this blog for a year now and its still in a default theme.
It took all of 5 mins to get things mostly how I want them. I have a pull-down menu for categories (So you can pull down the say the “Gun Death?” posts, or Product Reviews, or “Family and Friends”, or maybe you’re interested in reading the Epilepsy tap….)
I also have a search box which should be useful to all, lord knows I use it on other people’s blogs to look for various posts or subjects.
I wouldn’t mind adding a “Contact” button for those who would like something quicker than deciphering the scrawling of “weerdbeard AT gmail DOT com”, but I neuter the email like that because I don’t want constant spam. Can I have the best of both worlds?
The most important (at least to you guys) is an RSS sidebar. Overall I don’t like the whole “Blogroll” thing as I’d rather not be exclusive at all, so it would be HUGE, and with big lists like that it tends to favor people in alphabetical order. So I’d like to have an RSS feed on my side bar so you can see people who have been added who’s posted most recently.
#1. I see this as a reward for those who keep their blogs active, and #2 it benefits the people who don’t update their blog every day, because they’ll show up when they do drop an update.
So the Widget controls are asking for an RSS URL. I appear to have something off my blogger account so maybe that would be the best start, but I really don’t know how to drive it, nor do I know its URL.
So can anybody give me a hand?
