Hello World

This is my Nth attempt at blogging, the rest were rather single purpose and rather short-lived so I've created this one to combine all my interests. I expect to primarily focus on my hobbies, though I will freely wander into even forbidden territories, such as politics.

Since I play World of Warcraft, I also added the Wowhead mouseover tool, which means that if you see something like this Darkmist Recluse Spider, you should see some data about it when you pass your mouse over the link. And since this is my first post here, I'll add the instructions as to how to easily add the tool to your blog here on Blogger.

  1. Go to your Dashboard
  2. Click on the "Layout" link for your blog
  3. Click on "Add a Gadget" in any of the areas that offer it
  4. Select the "HTML/Javascript" gadget.
  5. Add "Powered by Wowhead" to the title or I guess leave it blank if you want
  6. In the Content area, paste the following code:
    <script src="http://static.wowhead.com/widgets/power.js"></script>
  7. Save it.
  8. Drag it to wherever you want on the page.
  9. Save your Layout

There you should now have the ability to add links to Wowhead and they should provide mouseover data as I have demonstrated in my second paragraph.

For other blogs that don't use Blogger, see this guide.

If anyone has any better guides, or even better written ones, please comment.
