bX-9x80od Error and Solution

I got this error when I tried to change the color of a link on my blog.

I googled 'bX-9x80od' and saw that it was a problem that had been reported many times.

The solution is simple. It doesn't involve a workaround or anything strange. It is just a question of going to the correct page in your blog set-up.

The basis of the error comes from the fact that people are using the new templates in draft.blogger.com, but the page you would normally go to in order to change link colors etc, only works for the older blogger templates.

So if you are in your blog and you go to 'Layout' and you see this:


Then you are in the wrong page. If you click on 'Fonts and Colors' you will go to a page that looks like you should be able to change link colors etc., but it will bring up an error when you try to save it.

If you are looking at your blog (rather than the admin panel) and you click on customize, it will still take you to the wrong page:



This is what you should be doing, instead.

Go to Dashboard, click on 'Layout' and you will see a new tab called 'Template Designer'. That is the one you want, and the rest is easy and straightforward from there.

Giveaway Tools

After looking at an article on InsightScope about contest giveaways, I just read the FAQs for one of the tools, which is KingSumo Giveaway and I see that as at the time the FAQs were prepared, the tool doesn't integrate with Mailchimp. Instead you have to download a CSV and upload.Also, there is a warning that the tool may not be compatible with Facebook's terms in the future.Finally, there is a long, convoluted way you have to deal with duplicate content, which is described in the FAQs as follows: I’m concerned about duplicate pages for SEO We don’t create new pages, just add a parameter to your URLS. Google just sees the original page and URL structure. What we recommend if Google results are important is to run the tool, then once it looks like a winner I’d change the Title to the winner and the original URL. Remove the other titles. We are working on a fix to make this easier.Advanced users:Utilize the parameter tools in Google’s Webmaster Tools and set the Headline plugi…

My Blog Is Carbon Neutral

I am pleased to be able to make the statement in the title to this article and I want to explain how I have done it and how I came to hear about the scheme that enables it.

The first step along the path that brought me to this happy state is that I have joined Seeded Buzz.

The idea behind Seeded Buzz is for the members to plant seeds - which means telling other bloggers about their blog posts and inviting them to continue the conversation on their blogs with a link back to the original post on their blog.

Well I have found a blog post from one of the members that covers a subject that interests me.


Seeded Buzz points out that better the Seed conversation and the more extendable / debatable it is, the more other bloggers will Buzz about it on their blogs and link to the original post.

And as we all know, links are the engine that pumps searches - and these are the lifeblood of the internet.

The seeder profile I found was from Thomas Chasm who blogs about a lot of different categories …
