Geocities closing soon

I got a call today from a friend of mine informing me about Yahoo!Geocities is closing down later this year. I thought homepage is forever... guess I was wrong...


I started to learn about HTML and web design somewhere in late 1990s and geocities was one of the FREE websites that allow anyone to start a homepage. Before Yahoo! take over, it really was a community sites. Personal homepage owners were communicating to each other and they even elect representatives. Regardless of low web space, people are making the best out of the bandwidth.

I explored and enjoyed making my homepage with frame with was an IN thing then. Creating my own animation gif, banner and adding Midi files as background music. My homepage was more to display my artworks and some side passion.

When Yahoo! taken over, no more FTP and although it can still upload flash files, they added pop-up and side advertisements which were a big turned off to me. Till then I moved on. It's only years later I start blogging.

Today my old homepage is there. I will await more news before acting. If you have any homepage there, I suggest you start backup what is precious to you.

Rating on your blog per entry on Blogger

How do you know your writing are good apart from the comment you are getting? If it is good? How good is it? You may need some rating system to know that.


It been sometime that I wanted a rating system for my blog post. The last I had outbrain star rating on this blog but somehow I felt very much cheated that it show other links under the rating system. I finally found one that is FREE and what I wanted. Thanks to JS Kit!


I managed to add the following on my blogger at my individual post. So each post will have it's own rating.

1. Under your blogger go under layout > Edit HTML>

2. Check on the "Expand Widget Templates" checkbox. You may want to backup your template first.

3. Search for "<p class='post-footer-line". I chose post-footer-line-3 to put the rating. Just copy below and it should work.



<p class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'/>

<div class='js-kit-rating' expr:path='data:post.url' expr:permalink='data:post.url' expr:title='data:post.title' permalink='' starColor='Green' thumbsize='small' title='Rate this entry' view='split'/>
<script src='http://js-kit.com/ratings.js'/>
</div>


For further customisation, you may read more on Js-kit.

Okay now you have your own rating system. Enjoy and Rate this article too!
