NaPoWriMo Button

Thanks to Ivy Alvarez for the snazzy yellow and black NaPoWriMo button (known as the "bumblebee") on the right-hand column. NaPoWriMo is an annual April event in which participants write a poem every day through the month. If you click the button, it will take you to my poems. Of course, it will (should...) be updated every day.

Glad you like that button, Rob. I was worried no-one was going to adopt that one. :-)

Looks excellent - where can I find the installation instructions for that?

Rob said...

Hola, csar! I can't write in Spanish, but cheers anyway!

Ivy, I like the bumblebee. I can't understand why it's not more popular.

Matt, I probably went about it in an absurdly complicated way. I right-clicked the image in Ivy's site and saved it to my computer.
Then I pretended to post it to my blog to get the html.
Then I changed the the first url (the first http thing you see within the quotation marks) to the url of my poem-thread at Pffa.
Then I shoved that into my template.

There is probably an easier way. But it works!

Thanks Rob. I'll have a go at that. I've managed to get the indexing to work too.

Went through the first week, liked "Croft" best. If you get one good poem a week out of this you'll be beating the odds. What I couldn't believe were your 3015 posts on Poetry Free-for-All. What do you do in your spare time? Cheers.

Glad you enjoyed Croft, CE. All the poems are first drafts at this stage.

I'm a mod at Pffa, so most of my posts aren't poems or crits. They are either made behind the scenes, or answering questions, asking people to read the posting guidelines etc. Usually I end up having to make a few such posts every day before 8am. In fact, I wish I did have more time to write crits and do what people are supposed to do on poetry boards.
