Adding links

Khris is gonna be a guest contributor to Hoppy Helps! Please do NOT tell Sassy, but I think Khris has a crush on Hoppy:).

Here is her first official contribution:

To add a link to your posting you highlight the word that you want your readers to click on ....so if you are talking about Bonnie you highlight the word "Bonnie".....then click on the little icon that is above your posting box.....and that will bring up a field that you can put the link in. When you post the message the word Bonnie will be in a different colour for your readers to click on.

In your side bar where you have your links for your favourite blogs you need to click on your "dashboard" and then "layout". There you can click on a "page element" and then you click on the one that says "Link List"....there you can add you links. You can put a name then the link address.....then just the name shows on your blog rather than the whole link address.

Khris, you are amazing! Hoppy loves you...just don't tell Sassy!

If you are felling froggy, leap on over there and check it out.

What is a meme?

The best answer to this question ishere.

To participate in a meme simply follow the instructions. They are often found at the originating post...and not always in the post where you find the meme.

Be sure to always list and link to the originators' post AND the post where you found the link when it is possible. I have looked memes and awards up in Google to find the originator. If there is one you can't find...lemme know and I will try.

Part of doing memes is sharing the linky love:). Remember...link, link, link.

Here is a list of memes .

How to put Mr. Linky in a post

1. Go here.
2. Register for an account.
3. Check your e-mail. Follow the instructions in it.
4. Once logged in click on the Wizard link at the top of the page.
5. Choose the 'html only' AND the Original Auto-Linkies options.
6. Click the generate code button.
7. Mr. Linky gives excellent instructions at this point.
A. Put the header script into your template where he shows you. This is something you only ever have to do ONCE.
B. Put the auto link script into the post where you want Mr. Linky to show up.
C. In his Step 11, the website owner says you will get an error script when publishing your post. This has not happened to me at all.

Final Step...put the link to your first use of Mr. Linky here:

How to put something in the sidebar of your blog.

There is a feature in the blog that I use called "Customize" where you can go in
and add a feature. I simply 'added a picture' on the left hand side, and then
inserted the badge I wanted to show up.

Heads or Tails~

Heads Or Tails Meme


Today's Heads-or-Tails is: anything or any version of the word fool:). Although taken from an email here is a list of things I need to remember in order to not be a fool...with a little humor tossed in.

Christian One Liners:

Don't let your worries get the best of you; remember, Moses started out as a basket case.

Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited until you try to sit in their pews.

Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisers.

It is easier to preach ten sermons than it is to live one.

The good Lord didn't create any thing without purpose, but mosquitoes come close.

When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there.

People are funny; they want the front of the bus, middle of the road, and back of the church.

Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on the front door forever.

Quit griping about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn't belong.

If a church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has.

God Himself doesn't propose to judge a man until
he is dead. So why should you?

Some minds are like concrete, thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.

Peace starts with a smile.

A lot of church members singing 'Standing on the Promises' are just sitting on the premises.

We're called to be witnesses, not lawyers or
judges.

Be ye fishers of men . You catch 'em - He'll clean 'em.

Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

Don't put a question mark where God put a period.

Don't wait for 6 strong men to take you to church.

Forbidden fruits create many jams.

God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the
called.

God grades on the cross, not the curve.

God loves everyone, but probably prefers 'fruits of the spirit' over 'religious nuts'.

God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

He who angers you, controls you.

If God is your Co-pilot, swap seats.

Don't give God instructions -- just report for
duty.

The task ahead of us is never as great as the
Power behind us.

The Will of God never takes you to where the Grace
of God will not protect you.

We don't change the message, the message changes
us.

The best mathematical equation I have ever seen: 1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given.
***

Here is code for Heads-or-Tails is you wanna use it...just put in in your post that you do for this meme:).
