Skywatch Friday and How to Add Blogger Label Cloud


This was taken earlier in the week at Kalemegdan Park.

I'm trying a new blog layout! I wanted more columns but still wanted to keep my pictures at 700px. And I'm thrilled with the labels cloud for blogger, where instead of a long simple list of tags (i.e. labels) they're displayed in a "cloud" with a larger font for tags used more frequently. There are ready-made widgets that will do that, but usually they'll make tags from any of the text on your blog and you'll wind up with some screwy keywords. I found (and followed) these instructions for changing the blogger list of labels to the cloud here: phydeaux 3. If you're not used to customizing your blogs' html/xml settings it might look complicated on first glance, but actually it's pretty step-by-step, cut-and-paste. And then visitors to your blog can browse by topic without having to scroll down a long, long list of tags! :-)

Nice Skywatch!! And I know it's coooold in the photo.

I've been meaning to sort of update my layout too, but one thing leads to another and I don't get to it. Maybe in 2009...!

Ooh that looks cold, but a beautiful sky with the feeble sunlight peeking through the bare tree.

Nice new layout too!

Neat scene with the long afternoon shadows. I like your new layout - I tried view by subject & you are right it works well.

I like your blog's new look, Greg. It really showcases the photo. And this photo has one of my favorite subjects (winter tree). You caught that sun beautifully! Wishing you a belated Merry Christmas!

Oops! My apologies -- Greg is at Liege City Daily Photo. I was trying to wish everyone a Merry Christmas before I left for my weekend trip, and there were clearly too many distractions. (It's not that I can't tell the difference between Belgrade and Liege; I once got picked up by the police in Belgrade, so I remember it very well!)
