The Banner Blues
Hello, fellow bloggers. 'Tis I, the Village Idiot. I come to you seeking help. Now before your eyes start glazing over and you hit that back button, take a moment and listen to me, please. Shouldn't all of us, as good citizens of Blogland, strive to help each other whenever possible? Isn't it almost incumbent upon each and every one of us to share blogging tips and techniques when asked? Eh? Isn't it? Wouldn't you want to enlighten the ignorant if given the chance? Of course you would. And here I am. The ignorant. Now's your big chance. Enlighten me. Would someone out there please tell me how to make a banner for my blog? Hello? Anyone there? Hello? It suddenly got very quiet. HelLOOOOOOOOO! My good friend Joan over at Joan's Journeys taught me how to insert a link without showing the whole URL or whatever it's called. See? I'm teachable. Now please. Someone teach me something new. Like this banner thing. I see all these cool banners out there and I so wish I had one. Don't get me wrong - I don't just want it for me. Noooo. I want it for you, too. You few, you brave, you crazy ones - who keep coming back and reading my blog. I want you guys to have something lovely to gaze upon. See? I'm so, so selfless. Really. If even just one of you could help a sista out here and tell me how to do this, I'd be ever so grateful. And if more than one of you would help me out, well...actually, that'd probably be better since I am somewhat technologically challenged, as they say, and may need to hear the same thing said several different ways before it actually sinks in. So what do you say? Willing to reach out and help a fellow blogger? Anyone? Anyone at all? Oh come on, people! I'm begging you here. Help me! Please! Eliminate ignorance wherever you can! Help me. Hellllllp meeeeeee! Or not. The choice is yours. Let your conscience be your guide. I'll be fine without a banner. I've gotten by all this time without one. I can soldier on, bannerless and alone. It's fine. Don't worry, if it's just too much trouble. I'll still smile upon your banners with all the sweetness my poor shrunken soul can muster. (hmmmm. Too much? Yeah, I thought so. I'll stop. I've pleaded and begged. Now we'll just see what comes of it).
