Snow? Bird? Both?

I have gotten many emails asking me two things:
~  how did I add the cute little Twitter bird
~  how am I able to make it look like there is snow falling? 

Did you see them?  Aren't they neat?  

If you are interested in adding some fun things like these to your own blog, then you must visit and become a follower of:

They have easy-to-follow tutorials to help personalize your blog!  
If you click on the picture above, it will take you to the Twitter bird tutorial.

The tutorials are all written when viewing Blogger in the Old Blogger Interface.  If you aren't sure how to switch back to it, all you need to do is go to your Dashboard and click on the little gear in the upper right corner, then select "Old Blogger Interface".  (See the screenshot below)
Then follow the directions listed in each tutorial.

The Animated Twitter Bird requires you to edit your HTML.  Editing your HTML can be scary.  Just be sure you download and save your full template before changing it!  That way you can just paste it back in if you make a mistake. 
You also have the option to preview the changes before saving them, which is also something important to remember.  

The Falling Snow Effect is not quite as scary.  You are simply going into your layout and adding a gadget, just like adding somebody's button to your sidebar.

Hey, if I can do this, so can you!  I have learned SO VERY MUCH since I started this little blog!  It has been so fun!!

(By the way, I was in no way compensated for this post or am related to Spice Up Your Blog other than being a follower myself and sharing this great info with you!)
