This is a test post to seek assistance in formatting this blog. This is my first attempt at using the "new" (not so much anymore) format. My other 3 blogs are still in the old format where the "Layout" tab was not available and you had to personalize the blog via the "Template" tab and use html. While I'm certainly not an expert on html, I have to say so far I am not liking this new format. Perhaps after I learn more about it and experiment I will, but for now am glad my other blogs are in the "Template" format.
Anyway, I could use some help from my fellow geneabloggers on formatting this blog. Here are some questions. All opinions are welcome, or I wouldn't ask!
1. Color Scheme: I love the background color but not sure about the rest. What do you all think? Don't worry about the link color (the orange one ... ick). I'll change that tonight!
2. Title: I could use some suggestions. So far it's between this one "OMcHodoy Orations" and "Orations of OMcHodoy". As you can see by "Oracle", I have a tendency towards alliteration. Sometimes it works, and I think it works well for the Oracle blog. But alliteration can get too "cutesy" sometimes. Are these titles too "cutesy"? If not, which sounds better to you? If so, tell me. I'm in the middle; sometimes I think it's too cutesy, other times I don't, so I do want opinions and/or suggestions for other titles. This blog will be for stories, lore, memories, writing prompts,etc.
3. Labels: I can now see how they are added with the "new" blogger. Does anyone know how to do this in the "old" blogger (that doesn't have the "layout" tab?). I do not wish to switch my other blogs over.
4. How do I add a hit counter to the website? There isn't a feature for this in the "page elements" section, and in the "html" editing screen it won't accept the codes (i'm using the same ones as I do with the other blogs and it's not working here. It keeps saying it's not well-formed.
Any help appreciated.
