This is what I did today

Thanks to Mandarin Design

I'm a "visual" person and so, with some help from Mandarin Design, I did a link to everyone using bits from their blogs ( I hope you guys didn't mind - if you do, please let me know and I will change the picture ), which you can see on the right sidebar.

There are still some that I haven't put up, but my eyes were beginning to swim, so no worries, your blogs will be up there soon :)

Ngakaari, if you're out there, do let me know what/where your new blog is!

Happy Blogging Everyone
But if it's a bummer of an idea and starts to slow down downloading, i might scrap it altogether

Very cool link bar! Is it java script or css based? Works very well. You could go blind from all those tiny pictures!

Cute! Maybe I'll eventually add my own picture to my blog. :)

Letti,
That is so cool. I'm definitely inclined to click on the little squares.

Agnes said...

Very cool! I've just done something similar on my blog ... but I have to make the little buttons by myself. Thanks for the link to Mandarin Design ... I can learn a lot from there.

I think it's a nice touch to the site, but it does cause greatly increased load times, especially for those blog explosion visitors. I'd recommend storing those photos with an image hosting service, but not at full size. I'd crop them down to the size that they will be seen, which should dramatically decrease load time.

Otherwise, pretty cool

I love what you did. How creative and very appealing! :-) Love the little teapots for my site. hehe

Its very inviting as at least a prelude or a face to the blog instead of text, as we know pictures paints a thousand words. I think its a bit tad slow though during loading...

letti said...

Thanks for all the comments. I am resizing them so now it should load faster..and meg, you're on now :) *meek grin*

That's neat. I like it.

makuahine said...

Ah I found mine!! :-)
Looks great, Letti :D

I had considered doing that when I was still using my random links script because I also wrote it to do images. But I decided nah, I'll stick with text and switch to the WP links management. ;-)
More than you wanted to know, I know.
