Look at my sidebar! Pretty, no? HAHA! 

Anyway, it's so simple and! Only 3 steps.

1. Prepare an image. Make it pretty! :) Maybe around 35x180 or so. Just play around with the size so that it fits your sidebar.

2. Upload your image to an image hosting website. I'll always go for Photobucket. But you can use any website you want. Just remember to get the direct link!

3. Go to Design > Edit HTML
Okay. So the first thing you should do is Expand Widget Templates. Its on the top right of your html code.

Now you have to search for id='BlogArchive1' (this is for Archives gadget)
Just click Ctrl + F and paste this code there.

You will find this set of codes (or something similar to it)
<b:widget id='BlogArchive1' locked='false' title='Archives' type='HTML'>
<b:includable id='main'>
  <!-- only display title if it's non-empty -->
  <b:if cond='data:title != ""'>
    <h2 class='title'><data:title/></h2>

Found it?

Okay now...
<data:title/> is your sidebar title data tag. To use an image, replace it with <img src="YOURI_IMAGE_URL"/>

So your final code will look a little something like this
<b:widget id='BlogArchive1' locked='false' title='Archives' type='HTML'>
<b:includable id='main'>
  <!-- only display title if it's non-empty -->
  <b:if cond='data:title != ""'>
    <h2 class='title'><data:title/><img src='YOURI_IMAGE_URL'/></h2>

To look for other sidebar widgets just search id='YOUR SIDEBAR TITTLE'
Example : I'm looking for my twitter sidebar id='Twitter'

Any questions, just ask me :)

Sugar Glider for a pet?

Hello everyone! 
Holiday is really killing me. I'm so bored. Hmphh! FML!
I can't wait to go to Thailand this December! TEEHEE! 

Everyone, this is a Sugar Glider! :)
It may look cute to some of you but i think it looks gross. LOL. Sorry. Don't take it personally my dears. Haha! I started to fear these kind of things since i was very young. 'Things' like rats, mouse, hamsters, squirrel and apparently sugar gliders as well. My greatest phobia are things that are mice related. Ewww.  

Anyway, why am i suddenly blogging about this 'cute' looking thing? Because a few months ago Calvin bought a sugar glider. Her name is Calcium. She shits on peoples shirts and she makes these type of screeching noise when a stranger tries to get close to her. Its a very annoying sound. LOL!

But overall, a sugar glider would make a lovely pet if you like hamsters or rats. Thumbs up! :D Sugar gliders make endearing, playful, and entertaining pets. Their nails are sharp and will scratch if they need to dig in while climbing or landing on you. So you better keep them well trimmed! :)

Gliders adore being near their owners, inside a shirt or in a pocket :) 
Tip : Wear two shirts and let the glider hang out between them, 
or else their claws will tickle or scratch!

They're one heck of a devoted companion! :D
