NavBar I Hid and Favicon I Created... Finally!

Finally! It has been my dream to create a favicon to each of my blogs but I never had time to make it happen. I know it's simple but I need time to read the instructions and create the favicon. These days, I have to admit that it's simpler than how it was before. What I just did is just generate my favicon link and voila, now I got my favicon on most of my Webbielady blogs. It's just a simple letter "W" actually but I am happy to have it. Now the "B" of Blogger is gone in my url!

Are you interested to have your own favicon as well? This is the tutorial I followed and it is obviously effective since I have my favicon now. Please take note that I didnot follow his advise for the favicon generator though. Instead, I used this site to host my favicon image AND to generate my favicon url. In a single upload, without a need to register, I had my favicon, simple and fast!

So what's favicon? Favicon, a term used as a short for favorites icon. Favicon is also known for different other terms such as shortcut icon, website icon, URL icon, or bookmark icon. Favicon  is a file containing one or more small icons associated with a particular blog, webpage or a website  A blog owner, webpage creator or a web designer may create such an icon and install it into a blog, website or webpage. For most of Webbielady's blogs, it's that red letter "W" that you can see before the urlor before the blog name/title in the tabs.
6 different navbar colors offered by Blogger. For those who use blogger designs (not other 
online templates edited by 3rd parties), usually the navbar appears when a site is opened.
Now my navbar is also gone. Hiding the navbar is quite straightforward. I just followed this instruction and my navbar is now gone. Why did Ihide the navbar? I just feelmore comfortable without it. 
Below are twoof my blogs: 
1st blog image: with favicon and without navbar. With this blog, I feel it's more personal and I have more control. I was able to put what I wanted and hide what I do not want.
2nd blog image: unedited blog, with navbar and without favicon

Google Cover Art and Happy Earth Day Everyone!

Google and nature. In fact, I should make it a habit to click the featured image of Google each day. They are actually always informative and very interesting. Today, I was attracted to the graphics and clicked it.... and voila! It's earth day. I was soon in the earth day org network reading around and watching videos. What have I harvested? Pledges, promotions, and everything about taking care of earth.

If we open our eyes, and be smart enough, technology has also a lot to offer to us about awareness in taking care of the earth. I mean, I am not one of those who wrote their pledges but I am one who has been enlightened by information, through technology and mass media, on how possibly I can share in improving the degradation of this planet.

I was born in a country were very few, if any, cared for the earth. Natural disasters may come, annual and repeated floods may destroy, mudslides may occur and kill, yet people do not learn. Still everyone throws everything in the rivers, in the seas, in their front or back yard... Dynamite fishing is rampant and mountain clearing through burning is always present while peopleburn their garbages if they are not throwing them, chemical and plastics included. It's sad to think.... Yes, awareness is very important but aside fromawareness,putting this awareness into action is even MORE important. I just hope changes for the better will happen. Happy Earth Day Everyone!

I found this video from the earthday network. Honestly, this styledoes not appeal to mepersonally. It's like they have said everything but they said nothing..... just like consumerism in this earth...we buy and buy and buy... and what we do? Throw them so soon... it's not my intention to be mean but this was the first thing that came tomy mind after seeing this video. Iknow the intention of the network is good but maybe a better campaign can be produced.... just a thought...

Google's Front Page image today.... Just Lovely!

Box Office: "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules", Sucker Punch, Limitless, The Lincoln Lawyer, and Rango

It's fun to know what are the hottest films again. Rango has gained a lot but it has stepped down a bit after afew weeks. Lately, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules" ranked among the top gainers together with Sucker Punch, Limitless, The Lincoln Lawyer and again, and still, Rango.

Below is the collection of trailers and respective synopsis of these cool giant-gainers in terms of gross revenues in all theaters worldwide.

From time to time, I post here some news on box office hits when they interest me. I have noticed that these days, films like Gnomeo and Juliet and Rango, both animations are having good marks and garnered the tastes of the watching public.

Part of the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules" film.  It was so funny! I would really like to view this film!

Gregory Heffley receives a diary from his mother, which he refers to as a "journal" and in it records the course of his first year of middle school.
The book begins with an introduction where Greg explains "The Cheese Touch." It is very similar to the Cooties. Greg writes that a student named Darren Walsh touched "the Cheese" (an old, moldy piece of cheese on the schoolyard) with his finger, and is "contaminated" by it, thus creating the Cheese Touch. The Cheese Touch is then passed around the school, and eventually ends up with a student named Abe Hall (Dieter Muller in the movie), who moves back to California, taking the Cheese Touch with him.

Trailer for Sucker Punch:

First, what's a sucker punch? A sucker punch is a blow made without warning, allowing no time for preparation or defense on the part of the recipient. It is usually delivered from close range or from behind. A sucker punch thrown outside of the rules of boxing is illegal. For example, when James Butler knocked Richard Grant unconscious after losing a fight to him on points, his license was suspended.

Following is the synopsis from iMdB: A young girl (Baby Doll) is locked away in a mental asylum by her abusive stepfather where she will undergo a lobotomy in five days time. Faced with unimaginable odds, she retreats to a fantastical world in her imagination where she and four other female inmates at the asylum, plot to escape the facility. The lines between reality and fantasy blur as Baby Doll and her four companions, as well as a mysterious guide, fight to retrieve the five items they need that will allow them to break free from their captors before it's too late.
