5th Blogaversary Lollapalooza Coming Soon!

Hi, friends. Yes, it's time for another lollapalooza here on Inksplasher—complete with a new blog design and regular new content and events.

It's the 5th anniversary of my blog—and I'm looking for prize donations!

Even though I've been a little sparse on the blog lately (and I'm in repentance mode), my "events" always get good hits. In addition to the blog, my posts show up on my Facebook page and I tweet about them. Good exposure for you and your prize/product.

My FIFTH Blogaversary is on January 14th. The giveaways will last for FIVE days—Monday, Jan 10th through Friday, Jan 14th. There will be FIVE prizes given away each day, for a total of 25 prizes. (And yes, contributors are eligible to win prizes.)

PLUS a Grand Prize!

Contributors will be included in the giveaways on a first respond/first on the schedule. When all 25 spots are taken, it's done—so e-mail me ASAP and I'll send the details!

Help me get the word out by grabbing a button for your sidebar. Then make sure you tell me you've added a button and send me the link to your blog. The button gives you an Extra Entry for the Grand Prize!

To Install the Buttons on Blogger

If you have one sidebar, use the bigger button (220 px). If you have two sidebars, use the smaller button (125 px).

  1. Put your cursor in the box below the button and copy all of the code. The easiest way to do this is to place your cursor in the box, then press control + a. This highlights all the text in the box. The press control + c to copy it.

  2. Go to your blog's dashboard and click Design. This should take you to Add and Arrange Page Elements.

  3. Click on Add Gadget.

  4. Scroll down the list and find the one that says HTML/JavaScript. Click on it.

  5. Paste the code into the large Content box. You can type in a Title if you want. Click the orange Save button. If you get a message that says there are illegal characters, it means you didn't get all the code. Go back to Step 1 and recopy the code.

  6. The button will display at the top of your sidebar. While on the Page Elements page, you can drag the new gadget box to another position on your sidebar, if you want. Then click the orange Save button.
That should do it. Let me know if you have any problems.
