  1. I see in my blog trackers significant traffic coming from facebook. My blog is not connected with facebook, I don’t have an account there, and I can’t see, who posts the links…any ideas?


  2. @ Cane – It could simply be visitors sharing links from your blog or it could be via Facebook search.If you search Facebook as well as results from within the site they display results from the web at the bottom of the page.


  3. Dude, your comment section looks awesome! Can you share how you made it?


  4. @ Ayush – The comment section was created and added by a friend, it is awesome but not my code to share…Sorry..


  5. What do you want to use a different font in the body for just a word here or there? As in write a blog post with the font I set up through templates but emphasize and occasional word with a different fun font and then use another different font for a signature at the bottom of the page?


  6. @ Lola – It all comes down to taste and opinions i guess.I love fonts and would use a different one for every line of text only it would take a day to write a post !


  7. Oops! I left out the ‘do’. I meant “what do you DO if…” I figured out how to use h4 header for a signature. If I wanted an occasional accent text, would I need to create and define an h5 in the template? How would I go about doing that? I wouldn’t want a lot of crazy. I’m talking about something sort of like this but with slightly less font craze even.


  8. @ Lola – You could add a class, span or id for this.Drop me an Email via the contact form in the top menu and i will send you some code for it.


  9. @Paul- Thank you so much for your quick responses and help. I ended up creating a .jpg signature and added it to automatically appear on each post in my settings – so much easier! And I’m just going to use italics, bold face, underlines, and color to spruce up the body. This blogging stuff is a lot of work, and I don’t want to make it any harder than it needs to be with lots of coding for an occasional word here and there. 🙂 Thank you for your offer of help, though!
