  1. Hi Peggy - I'm trying to customize Notable for my own blog and am hitting a barrier from the beginning. I love the look of the Featured Post (yours has the red background: I chose green), but then on my subsequent pages, the colored bar is massive and I can't see the gadget where I can standardize it and make it a narrower band like you have. Tips please? My blog is

    1. Hi Kat: unfortunately there isn't a gadget to modify that header. I changed it by adding CSS styling code.

      To do that, go to your Themes (make a backup!) then click the Customize button.
      That will open the Theme Designer.

      On the Theme Designer page, click "Advanced" then scroll down the options and click "Add CSS".

      In the CSS editor paste:

      body.item-view .Blog .post-title-container {
      padding: 30px 30px 30px 30px;

      (Make sure you include both brackets)
      The "padding" is the amount of space around your blog post title, and 30 pixels is smaller than the default amount.

      You can try adjusting those numbers to your liking - the order is top, right, bottom, left. You may need to apply it to your blog, then reload the post page to see the changes.

      Advanced > Individual Post or Page lets you adjust the title text font, size and color.

      I also recommend sending feedback to Blogger directly, by using the "Feedback" option at the bottom right corner of your main Blogger account page - that will let Blogger know you'd like more widgets to adjust.

  2. Well, that did it. You could look at the link I gave you and see my green-background titles are much better. Thank you for your help!

  3. Ciao Peggy,
    ti scrivo perché vorrei applicare al mio blog un logo che comprenda la scritta : il blog di Peppe Cotroneo. Io uso il tema contempo. Potresti darmi dei suggerimenti o sito per crearlo? E poi per rendere più reattivo e veloce il mio blog che suggerimenti dai?


    1. Hi Peppe, if you want to create a header for your blog, like the one I have at the top here, there are a lot of design programs you can use. The ones I like: are Canva, which is easy to use, and has some pre-made templates and for more detailed work, I like Photopea which is similar to Photoshop, but totally free.

      One important thing for making sure your blog loads quickly are not adding too many scripts or widgets, as that can slow down your blog.

  4. hi, i was just looking on how you have setup Comments (in blogger) - seems i can only select a 'google profile', on my blogger blogger, it's setup as 'google profile, name/url and anonymous' .. / mind you i get very little comments and also have stopped blogging :( something i wish to put right .. / m

    1. I used to allow anonymous comments, but the spam was getting to be too much. Requiring a Google profile slows the spammers down a little bit. I do like to have that option available, so I may try enabling it again to see what happens.

  5. Read your blog and it is simply marvelous and conveys useful tips for beginners of digital marketing, an explanation of the importance of content is highly useful.

  6. OMG! Today I'm learned too many things about blogger customization. Thank you Peggy K

  7. I really like the theme of your blog. If possible, can you share it’s name with me?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. I am using the Blogger Notable theme with a bit of customization. I wrote a bit about the design here.

  8. Hi Peggy, may I ask you a few questions:
    1) Is Feedburner's email subscription really be shut down starting July 1, 2021 ?
    Will it be reactivated in the future?
    2) What is best alternative for Feedburner?
    3) How to make a drop down menu like yours "More..."

    Wishing you always in good health.

    1. Hi Tikno, you may want to see my post about the change here

      1. Yes, FeedBurner's email subscriptions are going away at the end of June. I do not think it is likely they will come back.

      2. I don't know the best alternative. I'm still trying to figure that out.

      3. The "More..." is built into the theme (Notable). If the window is wider more menu items show. If it is narrower, they get moved under "More"

  9. Hello Peggy, I have two version of sitemap in Google Sarch Console:

    Should I remove the http version or leave both of them?

    1. Hi Tikno, I don't think there should be any issue having both. But I just used the defaults when I linked my blog to Search Console. The http and https versions of my blog are listed separately, but then they are grouped together as one domain property.

      Search Console did all that automatically, so if that isn't something you are seeing you might want to check the Search Console help center .

    2. Thank you for your answer :)

  10. How many articles you have written on this blog till now?

    1. There are 638 published articles on this blog.

  11. Hello Peggy, It seems like my Google account is some type of account (brand account for YouTube? Not sure, it's my work email address that my YouTube account is connected to) that won't let me add my birth date.

    I'm trying to connect my AdSense account since (I have my AdSense account from my work account) my YouTube channel is now eligible for monetization, but it won't let me because it keeps needing me to confirm my birth date. But I can't do it, as my Google account doesn't have the option for it. Can you help me? What should I do? Thanks. Take care. Regards, Iryna.

    1. Hi Iryna,
      I am just noting that we connected in the YouTube help community, which is a better place to troubleshoot.
