A loyal Blogger user for so long (3yrs), why this sudden change! Created a site for a few through it, created own templates, and the question now stalked me from everyone was why this change?
Simple answer to all: I wanted to grow in blogging! I wanted more customized site than what I had
We always love when posts and articles come with attractive images which sometimes even though they are not related to the post they still give a good look! Now it’s always hard to get very good resolution images and also it’s a little tough to know the tricks of Photoshop!
So who cares, as usual let me share you some tricky info, with just some CSS and HTML code, you can have your own images in your posts/articles on your website look better than before!
How do we do it?
With technology evolving day by day, i thought let me implement and help my blog also grow in technology! Though I had implemented a Search option for my blog sometime back, it lacked all the recent features and it was time to go a little techy for the blog! So here I have implemented a Speech Recognition feature, wherein you can click the option, speak out your search query and search!
Sadly this only works in Chrome browsers for now, and soon might be even seen in other browsers!
Now you to want to have this feature for your site, then go ahead, its just a simple code.
With a sudden change of all blogger blogs, domain being changed, most of us were quiet taken a back, when without any prior notice from Blogger this was changed! But now we have the answer shared by Google.
The change is that, anymore based on the country (locale) from where you visit a blog, you will be taken to that blog with that country domain! Meaning, if you are accessing my blog from India you will see it as, kelvincastelino.blogspot.com, but if you do the same from Pakistan then you will see my blog address as kelvincastelino.blogspot.com.pk!
I couldnt find any related articles or updates, and I am not sure how many might have noticed, but almost all Indian Blog’s in blogger account have been changed from .com to .in!
This has affected the alexa ranking
of the blogs to, for example, my blog alexa ranking was at 459, 876 (Link
) which has now dropped too, 10, 900, 023!
Waiting for the updates from Blogger as to why this change without notifications!
Update: I have moved my blog, So I am sorry, you wont be able to see this liveon my blog.
“Regular is boring“
Its always known that regular and normal is boring, and I pretty much follow it always in my life. Innovation and creativeness makes life more fun, and exciting and the turn out becomes beautiful.
Cutting out the philosophy crap, and getting straight to the point, have you wondered, why not change the regular style of labels what blogger gives, and make it more creative and animated.
Using some of my CSS3 skills, I tried to customize my label section in my blog, which you can see in my home page.
Did you know that while browsing net the screen emits CO2 in the atmosphere. So with calculation of thousand people using computer, about 1.2kg per minute.
So to protect the environment there were some initiative’s taken up by some environmentalist, which I would like to share around.
It was always some blogger’s idea of viewing some content or widget on only some pages, or search labels or archive pages. But it was really hard to do all the script coding and various possible things!Did some small research here and there, and with Blogger Plugin’s post, I was able to find, innovate a new technique in blog, “Selective display of widgets or content, based on URL”. Best part of it was its so damn easy.
So let me take you through the simple code snippets.
Want your images in your blog posts to look more attractive and capturing than the regular plain display.
Then lets customize is at you want.
NO!! NO!! NO!!
Its a simple fix with CSS and CSS3 trick. Just a small fix, and you have a new good-looking blog/website for you.
How you do it?
