Donna asks…

Help with a NYE party theme?

We have the same old NYE get together year after year and it’s in need of a face lift. The family is pretty boring so I need suggestions!

We generally get together for a pot luck and drinks. We decorate more and provide a keg, but those two items are really the only thing that masks it from the usual family gatherings, including the one on Christmas. I want to get a spin on this year’s party to make it seem special and get people to want to go, but my family is pretty wah-wah-wah and I just can’t think of anything creative enough to keep their attention. The party always hits a 11pm lag and it draaaags on to midnight. The one thing I can capitalize on is that we are saving ppl money but having a house party.

Any ideas? Or helpful blog websites?

Blog Design Journal answers:

You can prepare a “wish list” of menu you expecting the guests to bring for pot luck, and cross off when it’s taken

as for theme , you can refer here

Carol asks…

What kind of video blog should I make?

So I’ve been wanting to start a video blog in some of my free time buy I’m not sure what to make it on. I feel like here should be some sort of theme and I want some viewers. I’m just running out of ideas that are unique and original. I just don’t know I’m really funny and everything but I just don’t know what to do with that. Anyway if anyone has any ideas as to what I could do for a video blog please let me know! It doesn’t have to be just talking about stuff either. Oh yeah I’m a girl and I just need something to do with this.

Thank you :)

Blog Design Journal answers:

Pick a subject you are interested on and just start. Plan on specifics such as regularity (how often?) and duration (how long are you going to do it? A year?). Pick an event if you wish and then track it. Event can be local (school, workplace), or not (town, city, state or general in nature). Good luck!

I worked my BUTT off trying to do this and ended up having to have my dad help me with it.

/* HEADER */

#header{
width:100%;
height:111px;
background:none;
}

The portion where it says “background:none;” is where you’re going to put your picture. You need an FTP client to upload the image file to the file where your wordpress site is located.

The CSS for the background is as follows:

/* HEADER */

#header{
width:100%;
height:111px;
background: url(picture folder/picturename.jpg or whatever file extension.)
}

i.e: background: url(background/headerbg.jpg);
}

Hope I Helped,

-Billy

P.S.- After you have written in that code FTP the file up using an FTP client such as FileZilla.
