A couple articles on how to pimp your blog!

First, Mysterious Buttons shows you how to add an auto-updating blogroll from google reader. Actually, both a blogroll and a recently-updated dealie. This is hawt and can work on any sidebar or page out there – it’s simple HTML.

Next, Rhidach at Righteous Defense frees us from the default feedburner chicklet listing number of subscribers. Totally hawt.

Unfortunately, I was not able to do the plain text subscriber number thing, probably because it only works on self-hosted. So I had 2 options: the default chicklet, or just LIE about my subscriber number. While option 2 was tempting, I decided upon the default chicklet – however you can customize the color of the default chicklet beyond the colors offered in the palette. You can use ANY HTML colors (probably want to pick some from your theme).

Observe my awesome instructional screenie:

As you can see, you can put in any old HTML color code in there and save.  Make sure to use the “#” before the code.
