Everyone blogs for different reasons. For fun, for their pets, family life, gardening tips, photography, fashion, and some blog to earn extra money. For whatever the reason you blog, we all want the traffic to our blogs, we want followers, we love “likes”, and we love comments.
Trying to find neat things to enhance our blog is hard. Most of us don’t have the time to do extensive research on blogging, so I decided to do the research for you! Every week, I will try my best to find some unique blog enhancements that you can use on your blog.
First up, I found a great website for adding tickers to your blog. You can add a ticker for a birthday, anniversary, days to a holiday, pet birthday, days to an event, and much more. Daisy Path is where you can find all of these awesome tickers for your blog.
I have added a few “tickers” to the sidebar of my blog to show you what they look like. I have added one for Nikita and one for Bella, one for Nikitaland’s Anniversary, and since we love Halloween, I added one to count down the days until Halloween. When you find the type of ticker you want to use on Daisy Path, you have a choice of a mini (or small) or large ticker. The size you choose all depends on the width of your blogs sidebar. (the ones that I used were the mini ones)
Once you have found the type of ticker you want to use, enter in the data of your event, and in the last step, all you need to do is select “WordPress” and Daisy Path gives you the HTML code. Just copy the code, and head on over to your WordPress Dashboard and select appearance, then widget, select Text Widget, drag the text widget box to your sidebar and paste the HTML code into the box, click save. Now go check out your blog to see what it looks like. If you don’t like it, you can always delete it!
Create one today! Perhaps you can add one to count down the days until your next vacation! Have fun!
