Improve your SEO with this one very easy trick!

Oooh I just discovered an awesome SEO tip - make sure your outbound links open in a new tab, rather in the same one. If Google sees people clicking away from your blog a lot, you lose SEO points. But if a click opens in a new tab, the window with your blog in it stays open longer, thereby improving your SEO. Fortunately this is a really easy thing to implement!

How I did this on Blogger...

1. Go into your Template page and choose the option to Edit HTML.

2. Find where it says <head> at the beginning.

3. Directly below that, put in this code:
<base target='_new' />

4. Now whenever you click on any outbound link on your blog (a link that links to somewhere besides your own site) and it'll automatically open in another tab!


  1. WOW! THANK YOU FOR THIS! I'll have to do this!

  2. AND, I hate when I'm on someones blog, and I click the link and lose their page. Then I have to go back to it to finish reading, instead of being able to toggle back and forth.

  3. Done!! Thank you so much for sharing!!

  4. What a great tip! I just added it to my blog.

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

I recently completed a mini album that I made out of a pasta box so I wanted to share a tutorial with you so you could make your own!

What you need:
empty pasta box [I used a whole foods penne pasta]scrapbook papers & embellishmentsa single hole punchsturdy tape [like packaging tape]a paper cutter and/or scissorssome sort of binding, either binding rings or ribbon First, you are going to flatten out your pasta box.

Then you are going to cut it down to two 6x6 squares [or whatever size album you want to make]. If the box doesn’t fit perfectly in those shapes that’s alright, just piece them together using packaging tape to hold the squares together. Once you cover them it won’t matter anymore. Make sure t…
