Navigating the Bar

Even though I only have a basic understanding of html coding*, I like tinkering with the look and functionality of the Scrawl now and then, as you probably know. I mentioned recently that I was in the mood to declutter a bit and also asked for help writing a Blog Bio (THANKS!), which you can now find in my left sidebar along with a link to yesterday’s post that includes all of the other suggestions.

In my recent travels through my Google Reader, I found a post by NYC Girl over at Discovering Me (Thanks, NYC Girl!) which included this link to a page which gives step-by-step instructions on adding a Horizontal Navigation Bar to a Blogger template without having to pillage the existing html code. I was thrilled, and last night I decided to go for it. It took me all of ten minutes to make it easier for Scrawl visitors to find an About page, my Blogroll (which I hope to have updated in the next few days just did!), my Review site (which I hope to have updated in the next few days!), the Suburban WoW page, AAAAND my Twitter page. This is a big deal to me, to have everything easy-to-find. Yay!

In the next six months or so, I’m hoping to get a move-on to an actual Dot Com**, but for now, I think this will suit my needs just fine!

*But I’m always willing to learn more!
**with some outside assistance, because I’m just not that skilled!

    Looks good! I love those nav bars, they are AWESOME & always make blog reading easier for those who are new to your page.

    Cool new feature. I haven't updated my blogroll in… oh, I don't know when. Not since signing up for a Reader.

    I own my own domains, but like you have been putting off moving to my own .com. I want to find a way to auto redirect so everyone doesn't have to re subscribe or change their contacts.

    The years html coding has stolen from life are unknown. And here's the thing, my wife does it for a living and refuses to help me!

    Love the new About Me and I'm so glad you found the link useful.

    we must be on the same wavelength…I was thinking of getting an actual site too. Just not ready to commit to it yet.

    I cant wait to go through your blogroll…I comment on one of your friends blog and lost the link! Cant wait to find her blog again!

    My idea of "navigating the bar" is getting a good enough spot that the bartender knows that when my glass is empty he just automatically makes me another appletini without me having to ask again!

    Nice bar, but I have to admit being disappointed. I thought this was going to be a post about drinking.
