How to install Husband

0 comments Buzz Here

Blogging is supposed to be fun but what i have noticed now it became more stressful than ever before, entrecard is got to do with it -- i am not complaining because most of my traffic is from entrecard and i am so much grateful for that,...i meet a lot of nice people, created a great friendship, i get comments on my post and the result is amazing.

Anyway, my today's tutorial is quite hilarous which hopefully will help you get out from stress, it works for me. My sister-in law love to send me a funny email every now and then and i would like to share it her. So her it is:

Dear Tech Support,

Last year I upgraded from
Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition,
Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as
Romance 9.5
and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as:
NBA 5.0,
NFL 3.0
Golf Clubs 4.1

Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.

Please note that I have tried running
Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?



First, keep in mind,
Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.

Please enter command:
ithoughtyoulovedme.html and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update.
If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

However, remember that overuse of the above application can cause
Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1
Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do,
under any circumstances install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.)

In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the
Boyfriend 5.0. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary,
Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend:
Cooking 3.0
Hot Lingerie 7.7

Good Luck Babe!

Please don't forget my's look like sasha's corner can win this one! but we still have enough time for new bidder...please join in the fun.

Needed a Technology Upgrade

0 comments Buzz Here
It's been a while since me and my husband bought something for ourselves, maybe that's the nature of being a parent we got a lot of priority and we can set aside our wants. Just like my husbands HP Laptop he bought them a long time ago, we are thinking of upgrading them. I think if he is not blogging he don't really mind but when your always on your computer and doing a lot in it, you will feel that your computer is already old and tired you like a computer to fit with your needs. I am sure every blogger can relate especially when we drop 300 a day on the entrecard, we need to have fast, reliable computer. He always say's maybe next year or next time, i wish i can surprise my hubby and buy one for he's birthday that make's him happy instead of him spending all the time.
What about my wants? my husband bought me a Digital Camera as a Christmas present, but today i ask him to get me a latest one with lenses to explore the beauty of photography maybe because i have seen a lot of bloggers who shows there lovely shots and i so envious. As i was surfing i stumble this site where they have a lot of products and so cheap digital camera's, Printers and i was thinking of getting one for my brother because he always asking me about digital camera, their is one that i have eye on A470 Digital Camera 7.1 mega pixel with the price of $122.29 it's cheap compare to the normal prices here in NZ.


MY 6 Unspectacular Quirks

0 comments Buzz Here

I was tagged by my good friend Debra of Mamaflo's Place to tell 6 unspectacular quirks about myself.

My 6 Unspectacular Quirks are as follows:

  1. Once i started tweaking, working on a template or even wanted to learn something new i don't want to stop until i get them -- even i am cooking dinner i still think about it, even when i am in bed.
  2. I can easily get excited and taken over by that emotion, i know i need to stop and think but i just don't.
  3. I am super emotional person. I cry, even watching the Beijing Olympic when some athlete gets their dream medal.
  4. I turn red (my skin, and eyes) when i drink beer or any alcoholic drinks even just one glass.
  5. I love Classic of everything.
  6. I love to sing and i don't care if i am out of tune and the whole neighborhood can hear it (Done it back in my home country Philippines)
Now, i am tagging the 6 bloggers who i would like to know more about them.

How to download Fonts

0 comments Buzz Here
I will start posting tutorials of how to use Gimp and a little bit of sharing of what i have learned with Gimp.
Today, i will first will share on how to download Font so that if you can start making your own header or even re-design your Entrecard Card. I know this is not new for some but there are others that have not tried or even think of doing this but once tried it changed the way they look of designing.

There are many Fonts that are free to download and beautiful, but before i will share of where to get them i will give you the steps on how to download.

Simple and Easy:

  1. Find a font that you like to download once you have decided which one choose of either win or mac...
  2. Click download (It's so easy if you are using winrar to unzip but if not that's fine)
  3. You will be asked to where to extract the file find Windows then Font
  4. That's it!
Here where you can find great Font's including my favorite fonts.
  • Smashing Magazine - I start witl smaching magazine because they have a lot of fonts to share and a truly beauty.
  • DaFont - So much to choose and always my first destination when i looked for a new font.
  • Fontstruct - Build your own font or simply download the font you like.
  • Urban Fonts - what kind of font are looking? a sophisticated or a 3D, what about Western you can find them all here.
  • 1001 Free Font - the Title say it all, i am sure you will find what you are looking for.
  • Webpage Publicity - 6500 Free Fonts you cna download that's a lot.
  • Fontica - Another great place to find some great fonts.
  • Download Free Font - Try to find here if you can't fond what you are looking in the list.
It's is great to see that we are using a great font for our header instead of just the normal and default font, it attracts attention and i believe that every detail in our site is important, it's not just a header but it's the first to load obviously and it's where we get known as from what is in our header and even the widget card of our entrecard.


Improve your blogger comment section to create more inter-action

4 comments Buzz Here
Now that Blogger have finally included an inline comment form placement aside from the pop up and full page, we can start making it more attractive and inter-active -- If you have not switched to inline comment system of bloggers you can read my post Still Using Bloggers Pop-Up Comment System? and make sure to get back to this post to improve your comment section's design.Why do we need to improve our comment section?
Comment is a big part of our blogging, i take comment as a reward or my hard work. The comment section also need to be inter-active as much as we can so that our readers can easily follow a discussion, answer some questions etc....

I assume you have switched to the inline comment already next is we need to change the comment code to highlight the authors comment, i found a very well done tutorial at amanda's how to highlight author comments, this is what we need to do first as part of improving your comment section.

Now to improve the look of your comment section follow this simple steps.
  • Go to your Dashboard, Layout, Edit HTML (make sure to save a copy of your template)
  • Ctrl+F then type .author-comments { this will bring you to its code.
.author-comments {
background: #FFF3DF;
border: 3px solid #CCB999;
padding: 5px;
margin:0 0 10px;
You can change the color to whatever you like using the hex code to distinguish your comment among the rest.

Next is we need to put a border and improve the rest of the comment section aswell, therefore we need to add this code for the general comments.

.general-comments {
background: #FFF3DF;
border:3px solid #CCB999;
margin:0 0 10px;
then save...then look at your comment section if it separate you comment and if it looks better then before -- Of course there are other ways to improve this section, that is why i included the showcases of comment section to inspire you and let that artistic side of you to come out. Please, if you have done something great in your comment section please let me know and show it off :D

One thing before i end this post, why not add an icon beside your comment count,here's how to do it.
Ctrl+F type #comments h4 {
You will get to this code below highlight the whole code and replace them.

#comments h4 {
margin:1em 0;
font-weight: bold;
line-height: 1.4em;
color: $sidebarcolor;

replace them with this code:
#comments h4 {
background:transparent url( no-repeat scroll 0 0;
height:29px !important;
padding:8px 0 0 30px;
then can replace the icon with any comment icon that suites your template.

I hope you have fun with this tutorial, there are many ways to make our blog more attractive and interactive it all just up to us.


Top Droppers Deserves Appreciation

0 comments Buzz Here

I really think that it's great to appreciate droppers expecially those who reciprocate your drops aswell. For some bloggers they have mastered the game of entrecard and know very well who reciprocate and who's not. If you just started joining entrecard and don't have not form any routines i think the great place to start is to know who are the consistent droppers in your site and make sure you reciprocate with their drops this is the start of a great relationship of dropping (You both gain both friendship and credit).

Today, i would like to appreciate my top 10 droppers above in no particular order....thank you guys.
