  3. Hi Ferly! You’re a very creative lady and tech savvy too! Well done! I’m now following you on GFC and liked you on FB. I totally agree about the comments dilemma. I’ve been in the same situation. I have used Intense Debate on other sites. Now I must get it onto mine and my husband’s. Thanks for sharing all this helpful info.!

  8. Hi
    Found you from the sits site and wow, you have so much great info that s newbie like me has been searching for. I am working on my new blog and getting it looking pretty and wanted to know when you add the like for facebook social plug in on the blog, where inside the blog do you put the coding for it? I do not want to mess up my templete by putting it to the wrong place so could use some direction on this. My blog is in the beginning stages and not looking great yet, so when it does, I will come back and post a link for it. Thanks ahead of time for your help. Am getting great info from here, so thanks for doing a blog like this. It really helps the newbies out.
    Have a divine day!

  12. So glad to have come across this info on pinterest! Trying to build my blog and make it aesthetically pleasing. Thanks for all the great tips and going to spend the next week checking them all out. :D

  13. I just revamped a few months ago, but still haven’t achieved the look or feel I really want. So, I’m going to try again, and I have lots to do and learn. So, I’ve been reading all of the SIT’s posts and they have been awesome! Your blog looks amazing! Very well put together and organized, and I really like the multi-tabbed widget at the top. That’s so classy. Skylar is an eclectic magazine, it’s not just about one thing, it’s not just one niche. I work with my own models though I only have one working at the moment and am searching for newbies. So, I try to include them in my graphics and feature them as much as possible. I’m trying to make it look more like a magazine and bring back the vibe it had when it was in print. I just haven’t figured out how to do that yet. I’d love to find some widgets that go along with that. I was wondering if you might have any suggestions.

    Very inspiring post! I’ll definitely be adding the pinterest thingy!
