A Couple of Blogging Tips

I hope you never have to use this, but just in case it happens to you, I wanted to let you know what I did. One morning last week I got up and turned on the computer and went to my innocent little craft blog and...


OH, MY GOSH!!!


Right there in the followers for all the world to see was the grossest porn I've ever seen! Not that I've seen that much of it, but this was gross!! After I picked myself up off the floor, I went to blogger help to figure out how to get rid of it. In other words, how to delete a follower. Here's all you have to do:

When you are on your dashboard, click on your followers. That will bring up the whole list.
Click on the follower you want to get rid of and when it comes up, click on "Block this user".

That's all there is to it. I'm so sorry if any of you saw anything last week before I had a chance to delete it!



While I was looking around on blogger help, I found out how to number comments without having to mess with your HTML code for your blog. Here's the link. This way is so simple because you just add an HTML gadget. It worked perfect for me. There is one thing, though. When you copy the code they give you the last word says: </script>>    You need to take off that extra > at the end of script.


Happy Monday!
