Little disclaimer – these are just my opinion… taken and formed from my blog designing experience this past year and a half, and some things I’ve picked up along the way. Please take them with a grain of salt, and keep doing what you know is best for your blog xo
Welcome to part 5 of awesomeness for your blog! I have been really surprised at the extremely positive response I’ve received from this little series and hope you are all enjoying them.
So… let’s talk about your sidebars.
Sidebars are one of the BEST parts of a blog. When I happen upon a new blog of inspiration or cuteness, I look at two things… The “About” page, or something of this sort- because I love reading how the blogger began his/ her journey… and the buttons, links and info the blogger shares in the sidebar(s).
But let’s face it. Sidebars can easily get cluttered with all the beautiful buttons of all your favorite places online. One way to keep all your buttons and save space in your sidebar is with something called the scrolling sidebar gadget. Click here for the quick and easy tutorial!
So cool. Check it out, it takes minutes to install
update: it came to my attention a few days ago through a fabulous reader that the tutorial was not working. i made some changes to the code for the gadget and checked it to make sure it works. if you have any troubles at all, please let me know. xo
