Blog Design For All


diydesign

Exactly one year ago this week we began blogging with little direction and even less technical knowledge of this series of tubes known as 'the Internet'. We were so daft, in fact, that we understood a widget only as a unit of production and javascript only as the typeface on a bag of coffee. After 52 weeks and much googling, though, we've accumulated quite a bag of programming and design tricks, and we've recently begun to wonder if perhaps our readers wouldn't be interested in learning how to implement some of them on their own sites? From simple operations like removing the thin, branded Blogger banner from the top of your blog to more complex hacks like tracking outbound links to sites like your Twitter account and your sponsors' websites, we can help pull back the proverbial curtain standing between you and all those zexy blogs you've been swooning over.

SO, leave us a note about what trick(s) you'd like revealed, and, assuming there's enough interest (and we're fluent), we'll start spilling the beans in a weekly tutorial geared explicitly toward you, Gentle Reader of the Huzzah! logbook.
