How to add tabs on Blogger

I’ve been using Blogger for quite some time and to be honest it’s a user-friendly blogging site which is easy to implement and manage especially by budding bloggers out there. Here is one of the many tutorials that I will have because yesterday I find it weird that I forgot how to simply add a tab to my randomlycluttered blog site. It’s such a shame. Hahaha! So now to help my fellow bloggers (and readers that is YOU) maximize your blog and enhance your blogging skills (technical stuff) here’s one of those tuts I want to share with you.

 So here's what we're about to do, we are going to add a new tab on our blog site. In my example it is the "Photos" tab.

1. On your blog Overview click on the "Posts" tab which is shown below.


 2. Once clicked, the page with direct you to a page similar to the one shown below. This page consists of the pages you want to add in your blog site or pages you want to associate with your blog site.

2.1 Click the "New Page" tab to create a new page. 

2.2 If you want a new page click the Blank Page and if you want a link that will send readers to other web addresses choose the other option.

 3. You can now populate/embellish/bring to life the page by writing its contents, posting pictures, linking users to other pages, and many more.

3.1 Once done you may click "Publish" (if you want to publish the page, if not you can choose "Save" instead). On the image shown below I already have a page created and I only want to update it that's why the button I need to click is the "Update" button.

4. To add the page you've created on the navigation pane in you blog site, follow the simple steps below. 

4.1 Click the "Tab tabs" and choose from one of the options shown below.

- Top tabs - If you want your page to appear as a tab in your navigation page (top part).

- Side links - If you want your page to appear as a link in the gadgets pane (side part). 

- Don't show

4.2 Save Arrangement and poof you're done! :)

As an additional to this post I'm about to show you how to embellish your tabs depending on your preferred orientations and designs.

1. On your "Pages" page (this sounds redundant. I know!) Click the "Template" tab located on the left side pane of Blogger.

 2. Click on the Customize button as shown below.

3. This will direct you to this complicated looking page (but this is simple to follow. Trust me!). 

3.1 Click on the Advanced option (as shown on step 1 below).

3.2 Choose from the page elements you want to customize. For this example it will be options "Tabs Text" and "Tab Background".

3.3 You can choose from a variety of colors, text fonts, text sizes, background colors, and many more depending on your preference.

3.4 Once done (and satisfied) you may click the "Apply to Blog" button located on the left side of the page and just like so many tutorials... you're DONE!

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

Happy Mother's Day Ma!

My dearest mama,
How are you?
How is everything up there?
Are you doing well there? I hope you’re doing great.
Is it true what they tell us here? That there is no pain and sickness there? Only happiness and eternal peace?  If that’s true then I’m envious of you. You are in a better position than all of us here.
To update you on my life here’s the status quo: Grief has always been a daily thing for me now. Since the day you left us, there’s that emptiness in my heart – a hole that remains, a void that sits somewhere and always tries to make its presence felt.
There are also these waves they call, when out of nowhere I am reminded of you and then a wave of emotion just stirs me to tears.  It leaves me for a while and returns with an increased intensity. Somehow I get used to these waves and the heaviness that comes with it. There are bearable moments, when I can just fight back the tears. But then there are also tough days when I’m at a public place and I cannot control myself from crying. O…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…
