Some of you fellow bloggers have been posting about Google friend connect ceasing in March.  This seems a bit scary to me so I have been checking out Bloglovin to follow blogs and it seems pretty awesome!  It tells you how many posts you've missed from the blogs that you follow, which I think is fantastic.  I haven't quite finished listing all of my fav blogs on there yet (that's my next job!)

I will admit that I am completely behind the eight ball with most things Internet related, and I do tend to get things muddled up often.  I kind of get by using the try it - fail - try something else until it works then if it doesn't - give up! method.  I think some things I do I go about the complete long way around, example - To get to my dashboard on Blogger I go into new post then press on Dashboard!  If anyone could help me with a direct way I would greatly appreciate it :) also i have no idea if you can or how to put a button in a blog post???? like when you link up to a party or something? Also while I'm at it can anyone point me in the right direction for setting up categories (probably not the right word...oh....like headers so people can go to only my embroidery posts or whatever their interest may be!)  I would really appreciate any help you can give me either by comment or if its really involved (hoping) you can email me to gkristin@y7mail.com... yeah see complete nufty!

So to claim right to this here blog on bloglovin I need to do this
<a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/3336060/pritty-tings?claim=td5bxtn3rtb">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

Lets see if it works :) Oh and if you want to follow my blog by this method, that would be super awesome!  I just have to figure out how to put a follow button on the side hmmmmmm help please!
Kind regards


  1. When you log in to blogger, your Dashboard comes up then. I leave that open and open a new window to go anywhere else, that way my Dashboard is always there.

    Re the button: Do you mean for example, if you are doing a post on the Typography challenge.. how to add the button to the post? If so... when you are typing up your post and you want to insert the button, click on the tab at the top of the post that says 'Edit html'. Put the cursor where you want the button to appear and paste the button code.

    Re a page just for embroidery:
    1. Dashboard > Edit Posts > Edit Pages > New Page
    2. Dashboard > Design > Decide whether you want the pages to show up the top or in your sidebar > Add a gadget
    3. Dashboard > Design > Pages > Edit ... to organise the Pages

    If any of this doesn't make sense, or if I've left out steps, etc, let me know and I'm happy to send an email with more detail. Happy for you to email me direct if you have questions at any time.

    It's certainly all a bit confusing to begin with!!!!

    1. Oh thank you so much Pam!!! You are a wealth of knowledge and now my go to girl for blog problem solving ;)

  2. Pam is too stinkin' smart! She's a great blogging buddy to have around. I'm going to check out bloglovin'. I think I may already have an account.....
