[Song of the Day] Stuck Like Glue

February 13th, 2011 by rikki21:hellokitty.com

2rnxw77.jpg

This song is done by Sugarland. I’ve always liked the song, and so I’ve never really felt the need to watch the music video, but while I was YouTube song browsing I decided to watch it. The following is the official music video. It is completely and utterly bizarre.  Whenever I listened to this song before, I thought it was a cute love song. Now? *snorts* Now, I’m going to be picturing this video each time the song plays.

Stuck Like Glue by Sugarland, enjoy!

 

-24 Degree Weather

February 1st, 2011 by rikki21:hellokitty.com

Days_by_snowgardenColorado has to be the most annoying state on Earth. Of course, I haven’t been to many others (that I remember), but since I live here I have a right to be biased. So there. Last week, indeed even this past weekend it was in the 40s-60s. Then we get to today and it’s –2 outside with a wind chill making it –24.

WTFH?

Not only that, but my little sister’s (who’s in high school) school gets cancelled—not because of the snow, oh no—because of the “extreme cold”. Well, screw you high school.

Community college has to be a brat and only give us a 10a.m. late start, which doesn’t help me at all because my first class is at 10a.m. And then my *insert bad word here* 6p.m. professor decides to cancel class, but not e-mail anyone, so I went back there in the freezing cold wind only to find that out, which is annoying. Add to the fact I’m extremely tired and you’ve just really kind of pissed me off. Way to go Colorado weather.

You suck.

I hope you burn. No, seriously, burn so I don’t have to deal with this freezing cold.

Blog Guide: Sticky Posts

January 28th, 2011 by rikki21:hellokitty.com

What is a sticky post?

A sticky post is a term used for forums, mostly. It is a thread that is at the top of the forum (for the SanrioTown forums, it is those posts with a cupcake next to it).

What a sticky post does, is bring attention first and foremost to that post. In forums, these are usually posts about rules, announcements, or perhaps guides of some sort.

For blogs they are similar and different. The main similarity, is that you want your readers to see the sticky post first. Perhaps it’s just a note about your blog, or a table of contents. Whatever it is, you want everyone to see it first, before any of your other posts.


How to do a sticky post in your blog?

There are two ways to do a sticky post.

Way One: Set your default blog page to a ‘Home’ page, and not the most recent blog posts. What you get when you do that (and do it right), is something like the following blog:


As you can see, BunnyWix does a wonderful job giving links to places she wants people to look at. As well as a "Most Recent Posts" link, which links to the blog posts she’s made this past year.

To do this, go to your Blog Dashboard and click on "Options" and then "Reading".

You want to concentrate on the first section, the "Front Page".

Click on "A static page" and then select a page from the drop down menu (blue-boxed in the picture above) and choose the page that you want to be the page everyone goes to when they go to your blog. Once you’ve done that, click on "Update Options" and you’re done! Be sure to remember to link to your most recent blog posts if you want people to read them!

Way Two: Act like you’re going to post a regular blog post, but since you want this post to be first and above all your other posts forever, you must change the date.

Scroll down past "Post Status" on the right hand side until you reach the "Post Timestamp" section.

Checkmark "Edit timestamp" and then head to the year section (blue in the picture above). What you want to do is make this number bigger. However, you can’t just make it a couple of years bigger, like 2014, it won’t show up above all your other posts if you do so. Instead you want to pick a number like 2110 or 2400. A number waaay out there!

Doing so will make your post stay at the top of your blog until you change it (that is, until you edit the year back down). However, there is a slight bug if you do this. It will act like you’ve posted in the year 1969, or 1970!


This isn’t too big of a deal as long as you don’t have a "Read More" in that post. If you do, it will link to nothing.

To see an example of number two, click here to visit my blog! It has a sticky post on top of all my other posts.

I hope that helps some of you!

facepalm

I can not believe how stupid I am. Seriously. I completely forgot to withdraw from one of my classes in the fall. And so I ended up getting an F in the class. Because I thought I withdrew and so I never went to that class afterwords, but it turns out I didn’t, in fact, withdraw.

GPA went from 3.90 to 3.51. FUUUUUUUU————!

I want to cry. And Japanese 4 isn’t available this semester, so I don’t know what to do there…

School sucks.

Best song ever for Hades, Lord of the Underworld. (Percy Jackson has Greek Mythed me and I know that doesn’t make sense, but it’s true.)

Blog Guide: Blogroll

January 12th, 2011 by rikki21:hellokitty.com

etyv0h.jpgHave you seen blogs that have a ton of links on their side bar? Ever wonder how they put those there?

Never fear, this guide will show you how!

First things first: What is a blogroll?
A blogroll is a list of links to other blogs (although it doesn’t have to be. If you want to link to other websites completely, you can). This normally is located on a sidebar on your blog. For most SanrioTown blogs it’s located on the right sidebar of the page. Like so:

How to add a link to your blogroll?

Head to your blog dashboard page and click on "Blogroll" in between "Comments" and "New Themes".

You’ll be taken to the "Blogroll Management" page. Here you can edit and delete existing links, add links, and import links.

Click on "Add Link" to add a new link to your blogroll.

1. Name: Who’s blog link is this? What’s the title? The link name goes here.

2. Address: The URL of the blog.
e.g. If you wanted to add the SanrioTown blog, you would add: http://blog.sanriotown.com/

3. Description: When you hover over the link, what should it say?

4. Categories: Want to separate your friends’ blogs from the GMs’ blogs? This is how you do it! For more information on this search (ctrl+f for [100]).

5. Link Relationship (XFN): No idea what this is to be honest. Just ignore it.

6. Target + Visible: Ignore these too.

7. Image Address: If you look at the first picture above, you’ll see those pictures with names on them like, or . These are called "Blog Buttons" and are a pretty way to link to a blog. For image address, link to a 88×31px image. You do not need to have a blog button to add a link to your blogroll. If you leave this blank what will show up is the name you gave for #1.

8. RSS Address: No idea, you can leave it blank.

9. Notes: Notes about the link, I suppose.

10. Rating: Rate the blog? *shrugs*

Once you’ve filled everything out hit the "Add Link" button that’s underneath #3 (it’s the orange box in the picture). The link will then be added and the page will reset.

Creating Categories for you Blogroll [100]

Click on "Manage", then "Categories", and then "add new".

Category Name: Name of the category.

Category parent: This is default to "None", but you want to change it to "Blogroll" that way it’ll be on the side.

Description: What the category is about.

Now if you want a "GM" category to list all the GMs’ blogs in you can!

That’s it! I hope that helps some of you!


[Song of the day] I do

January 12th, 2011 by rikki21:hellokitty.com

FF12_i_RaslerAshe_9So, randomly decided to search for Greek pop songs on YouTube one day. I browse some, click on a bunch of related links which lead me to Kalomoira. Now, I searched for Greek pop songs. Greek. Greek.

Is the song in Greek? Nope, it’s in English. Turns out she’s a Greek-American and went on a Greek show like American Idol. Go her!

Anyway, this song is a very adorable wedding song. Someone propose to you? Sing this song to them! Hehe!

Blog Guide: Embedding YouTube Videos

January 10th, 2011 by rikki21:hellokitty.com

sexfree-lee

Complete with pictures! Special thanks to Rini who had the no video youtube embed which made me crazy trying to figure out how she did it. Once I did figure it out, I wanted to share it with everybody! So, here you go!

ヾ(〃^∇^)ノ


How to embed a normal video?

First things first: head over to your blog like you’re going to write a post. Set up your post the way you like it, save the YouTube video for last. Once you have everything ready. Click on the “Code” tab.

Why the code tab? Because any HTML written here will be converted when you post. The YouTube embed code is HTML.

Then go to YouTube and find the video you want to post. Click on the “Embed” button underneath the video.

You’ll get a box of items to edit. These items will help personalize the video. You can change the border colors, height, and width of the video.

Once you’ve got everything to your specifications, click on the wall of text (red box in the picture above), copy it (ctrl+c), and paste it inside the “Code” section of your blog!

Warning: Do not, I repeat, DO NOT click on the “Visual” tab once you’ve pasted the YouTube code. If you do, the code will disappear and it will not show up in your blog post. This also means, that if you successfully embed a YouTube video on a post and then want to edit that post when you go to edit it, the video will disappear so you must embed it all over again.


How to embed just the music and no video?

I’ve seen a couple people do that and I was promptly green with envy. Just want to share an awesome song with your readers, but don’t want the horrible video that went along with it? This is all you need:


But how do you do it? Like this:

<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/videocode" width="400" height="25"></embed>

Leave the height at 25, but set the width however you like. Don’t want your readers to skip ahead in the song? Force them to listen to the entire thing?


Simply change the width to 75.

Please be aware of this:

The url in the embed tags is different from the YouTube url. You must remove the “watch?” and replace the “=” with a “/”.

The videocode is that long string of numbers, underscores, and dashes after the equal sign (=) of the videos url.

So, what you get if you do that is something like this:


I Do by Kalomira


That’s it! If you have any questions, or have suggestions about embeding YouTube videos on the SanrioTown blogs, let me know!
