Weekend tip

If you're reading this blog, you're probably blogging yourself, or at least have some kind of web presence of your own on MySpace, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Hi5, Live Spaces, or Twiibook MeebuSpace.

Just kidding, I made up that last one.

Seriously though, if you have any kind of web presence, you probably know how to post HTML links, right? You know, if you type

<a href="">this is a link to Google</a>
It turns into: this is a link to Google

Child's play, piece of cake. We learned that in kindergarten.

And you know how to do images too, right? You know, if you type,
<img src="" />
It turns into:

Easy as cheese. After "mommy" and "daddy", the next phrase out of your mouth was "image source equals". So we're all experts here.

Well here's something you probably didn't know. You can put charts anywhere on your page. Now, you probably just wet yourself, but no, it's not too good to be true. Go and change your pants, then come back.

Did you go change? Seriously, wet pant readers are not welcomed on this blog. Go change. I'll wait right here.

All done? Ok, now I can show you how to put a chart into your Web 2.0 presence in all its Fung Shui HTML zen. It will tickle your inner geek fancy. Here we go:

<img src=",30&chs=350x100&chl=Piece of cake|Easy as cheese" />

That will turn into

Cool, eh?

Here's a little chart that shows what I've been blogging about lately:

Brilliant. Now you know how to do charts. You can thank Google Charts.

Shabbat shalom fine blog readers, have a great weekend everybody. Now back to your regularly scheduled Flomax commercials.


  1. That is pretty cool, it's a good thing I'm an old man and wear Depends.


  2. This comment is not about blogging, but I just found your blog today and have been reading it for a couple of hours now. I am a Christian raised in the Bible belt of Alabama in a Pentecostal church. In the past three years, though, I have been studying about the feasts of the Lord and have really enjoyed reading about Messianic Judaism. I was wondering if you could shed some light for me on what Jewish Christians believe about the baptism in the Holy Spirit. It is a topic of much debate among Protestant denominations, I know, and do not want to get into a debate, but was just curious about how Messianics believe. Thank you.

  3. Hey Judah! Thanks for the cool html tip. Now I have to find an excuse to include a pie chart on my site. Maybe this will be the motivation to finally update my site. I think it's been over a year, not that it matters because only like 2 people (including myself) visit the site, and blahblahblah... Anyway, just wanted to sneak in and say 'hey'. Did I tell you that I had a baby? It's a girl, and we named her Logan Isabel. I have pics, but I don't want to use your guestbook to advertise. I'll have to e-mail you sometime. Anyway, this post is way too long, and I think I've gone OT a bit. Talk to you later!

  4. In all honesty, Gary, I'm laughing out loud at that comment.

    Haley, I will write a blog post in the next day or two and fill you in on what is the standard beliefs. In short, I will say there is much debate about it in Messianic circles as there is in Christian circles.

    Michelle, congrats! Logan Isabel. Beautiful. Congrats to you and the hubby. When was she born? Please email pics or post links here, I'd love to have a peek.

    Take care guys, blessings.

  5. The shabbot shalom comment always reminds me of the movie The Hebrew Hammer; I totally recommend it if you have not seen it.

    OT There are over 11k lakes over 10 acres in MN; if you include the smaller ones it's like 50k or something like that.
