Widget on my Template

I have only a few stuffs on my page and I thought that it might be good to share some the things that might be useful for those who are interested in improving their blog appearance.
When I saw a cool widget on a blog, I would try to have and then modify it as per my taste. Sometimes I threw them away after few weeks, when I felt that my blog needed kind of facelift. I am a person who likes to change things. Translation, I can get bored easily.

Here is the script for my shout box that shows the width and height that I use.
For the colors, you need to go to your account at Shoutmix to change it.

<!-- Start Shoutbox Include -->
<iframe src="http://www.shoutmix.com/box/your_account_name/" frameborder="1" width="220" scrolling="yes" height="1000">
<p><a href="http://www.shoutmix.com/box/your_account_name/">View shoutbox</a></p>
</iframe>
<!-- End Shoutbox Include -->


The width is equal to the width of my small column. If your column is wider or narrower, you can add or reduce the number, whether by trial and error, or you can see the exact width at the html script of your template. You can change the height too.

As for blog links, I do not use the standard link widget from blogger. I clicked "Add a Page Element" on Blogger Template, then click "ADD TO BLOG" on HTML/JavaScript, and I put the script below. When I want to add another blog, I usually copy one full link, including the bullet, then just change the blog address and the name.

Now about the label. The reason why I have so many keywords for my labels was because they are directly linked to Technorati tags that I got from Seige. The more you have Technorati tags that are relevant to your posts, the more traffic there will be to your blog, in theory.

As for Neocounter, I think I paid around $12 USD with credit card. Now it costs $17.95 USD per year. If it goes up again, I may discontinue the subscription, even though it's nice to see all the flags.

If you want to add Recent Comments on your beta blogger, you may want to give a visit to Hans. Be sure that you follow the instruction on the second paragraph titled "Javascript sourcefile" before installing the widget.

For the three column template I got it also from Hans. I just moved the originally left small column to the right.
It's extremely important not to miss any important codes. Be careful. Always back up your template!
