geeky thing #12 – rotating heads

Another cool thing that you can do, is make a blog headline banner chicklet to put on other websites or in your email signature (although it doesn’t yet work for apple mail…)  To see what I am talking about – look in the right column of this blog, in the white box – those are the “animated heads.”  (or “rotating heads” to those of you who remember the english beat.)
  • Once you have signed up for FeedBurner, click on “my feeds” on your “dashboard” of the site.  Chose teh blog you want to create a headline banner for (if you have more than one blog) There will be 5 tabs along the top.  
  • Click on “publicize” and in the left column, under services, the top entry is “Headline Animator.” (It sounds much cheesier than it really is.
  • Fill in the blanks or go with their preset choices (they aren’t that bad) then at the bottom of the page, click “activate”
  • Choose where you would like to have your banner show up (myspace, blogger, email signature, etc.) and follwo the directions.  
  • It might seem a little intimidating to have to cut and paste code, but if you think of it as following a recipe, it isn’t as unnerving.
