How to Add Social Media Icons with a Hover Effect to Your Blog for Blogger & Wordpress


Having links to all of your social media pages front and center on your blog is very important. It let's readers know what pages are really your's and links them directly so they don't have to go searching. And when the code is right they can be linked to your social media without ever leaving your blog!

Today I'm going to show you a code that works for both blogger and wordpress blogs. Any blog that allows you to add HTML gadgets really. 

This code is fairly easy to edit and add it to your blog. It is also very easy to add more buttons once you've already posted it.

This code is a lot like the code from my other social media icons post. The only difference is that this one is designed for two images so when the a mouse cursor goes over the button it changes color. This one is just as simple as the last one to edit. I just needs two image URLs

Here is a demo of how the hover works:

How to Make Your Blog Look Like It's Not on Blogger



My blog is hosted on blogger. Can you tell? Probably not. I have removed the blogger navbar, the attribution that says "powered by blogger" and I changed my favicon to my own logo instead of blogger's logo. 

I also removed almost every blogger gadget on my blog and replaced them with HTML gadgets that give me more customization and are easier to edit and from my point of view I got rid of those annoying little wrenches and pencils called "quick edit" tools

I've also edited my HTML itself. HTML is all the code that goes together to create your blog. I've added HTML Gadgets but I've also edited the HTML backbone itself. 

Today we are going to get into a little HTML editing and adding a little CSS code. Don't worry I'm not going to get to in depth with HTML editing. Today the HTML editing is all just search and delete.

How to Start a Blogger Blog + Why I Chose Blogger


Hello Everyone! Today is going to be a bit different than my usual beauty and lifestyle posts. I have decided to start a series about blogging. Things like my favorite blogging tips to code tutorials. All the little things I've learned since starting this blog. 
When I started I knew nothing about code, now my blog is completely customized by code and there is nothing left of the original template I started with. 

I actually started my blog on Tumblr and decided I need to switch over to a better blogging platform pretty early on. I had only heard of Blogger so I decided to make the switch over. I had to copy and paste all of my posts and publish them one by one. Lucky for me blogger has the option to set the date for a post. I was able to add the original date to each post.

Monthly Favorites | July 2016


I can't believe it's August already. This year is going by in such a blur. I feel like July went by so fast I barely got time to even try things to favorite. This year is going to fast I hope it slows down in the fall months so I can really enjoy it. I may have mentioned it 2 or three times or 100 but I love fall. It's my favorite time of year! It's the perfect time of year. 

OK I'm rambling. Let's get to my favorites.
