Yearly “Snow On Your Blog” Post

Every year about this time, I post telling people how to switch on or off the snow that falls on your blog. Some people love it, others hate it, and some are just “meh”.

So, here is how you switch the snow on if you want it, or off if you don’t. And if you aren’t bothered, you can click the “A Mixed Bag” image on the right to take you to a random post.

So, head over to your own page hover over the MY SITES on the top left of your title bar.

Then scroll down and click the “Show falling snow on my blog until January 4th” so you can either turn it on or off.

You can either have it on or off by ticking or unticking the tick box. Tikkidee boo.

How To Create A Pingback

I was asked on my Sunday Photo Fiction Blog by someone how to do a pingback, so I thought I would create a post on it with easy to follow images. Or at least I hope they are easy to follow.

Creating a pingback to someone else’s post can seem hard, but it is one of the easiest things to do. I am going to create one to my Sunday Photo Fiction blog.

I will start by typing the writing that I want to use as the pingback.

How To Get Rid of Polldaddy Link

Okay, so I had a look through the forums and there was one where someone explained how to get of them. The way they said was almost unfollowable, so I just went through and clicked things that were similar and found it. I have decided to to screenshot some of them, and post them here so you can get rid of them as well.

I am going to contact support, but as it Christmas, I may not get a response until February so wanted to if anyone else has the problem.

Here is a screenshot of what I mean.
