Author of the unhuman series of addictive comedy cozy mysteries set in the Cotswolds. This documents my encounters with publishing and includes things I hope will be useful later. It also covers some local writing competitions and reviews some writing events.

Add blog to website

I wanted to include my blog page(s) within my webpages without having to retype the contents or change my webpage every time I add a new post. I was already setup on feedburner (see CREATE A BLOG) and, as one of the features on there will provide a summary or the whole content of some of all of the blog entries, this is the method I used.These are the settings I used:

  • 1. Logon to http://www.blogger.com/.

  • 2. Select 'My Accounts' on the top right.

  • 3. Select Feedburner.

  • 4. Select 'Publicize' .

  • 5. Select 'BuzzBooster'.

  • 6. Set Number of items to display = All

  • Open Links in = Same window
    Display feed title = unticked
    Title = completed
    Display favicon = unticked
    Display item author name = unticked
    Display item content = unticked
    Display item publication date = unticked
    Display link to feed = untick

  • 7. When the page redisplays copy (Ctrl+C) the commands gived at the top of the screen in the 'Your BuzzBoost is ready' area.

  • 8. Go to the web page source, select html and paste (Ctrl+V) the code selected above.

Add Blog titles to Blog

  • 1. Logon to http://www.blogger.com/.

  • 2. Go to 'Layout' .

  • 3. On the left click on 'Add a Gadget' .

  • 4. Enter the title ' Blog Headings'.

  • 5. Paste (Ctrl+V) the feedburner code from above.

  • 6. Save.

  • 7. Drag and drop the new gadget to the postion wanted.
