Many a time, I’ve looked at the «Facebook Like widget» here in WordPress. At first, I didn’t really get it as I saw this widget didn’t link your own Facebook-account to your blog … or … in a way it could, if you made up a «FB page» for it.
I’m may not be the world’s biggest FB fan, but it’s there — it won’t go away any time soon — and I like to keep myself well informed of the workings of it. So … I made up a Facebook-page! Solely for the purpose of finding out how it was done and how it works. AND … more importantly; to have some fun!
So here it is and you also see the ‘badge’ in the right column. Feel free to «LIKE» it 😉
Long time ago, I tried to link my own Facebook account to the blog … so that each new post appeared in the stream. Got quite a few comments each time, but they didn’t click through … they commented in Facebook! This irked me to no end so I removed that function. I mean … if I wrote the first paragraph, which was all that appeared in FB, about the weather being dull and overcast … that was all they saw! Then, the next paragraph could have been about something entirely different.
Either way, I had some fun with this. Realised that lately, I’ve only used Photoshop for editing pictures … no creating graphics in ages. So, I made a little header for the page and a kind of logo for myself 😀 . The header, I’ll work some more on, but I at least have it positioned. I’d almost forgotten how much fun it is to make stuff like this! For the longest time, I’ve wanted an @-sign in the shape of a cat. My original thought was a sitting cat, with the tail drawn out around it, sort of … but yesterday this one, here above, was born instead.
In Swedish, the word for the @-sign is «snabela» … where the ‘snabel’-part refers to the trunk of the elephant. The Norwegian word krøllalfa got to be one of the cutest words I’ve heard!
