Custom TypePad Blog Design: Writings from the FOXhole

Foxhole At E.Webscapes, we recently launched a custom TypePad blog design for Tarsha, who runs a blog called Writings from the FOXhole.  She approached us for some design work to her TypePad templates and had a very specific look she was going for.  The name of her sitecomes from her last name (FOX) and how she has viewed and lived her life (from a foxhole…a battle position).

10 Fabulous TypePad Design Finds

Designthumb Thought I'd do a little digging around the web to see if I couldn't find some examples of TypePad blogs sporting some great custom design work.  There are so many default TypePad templates that are very easy for you to use on your blog.  Right out of the box, they are functional and look nice.  However, sometimes a blogger will put in that extra effort with Custom CSS or Advanced templates to really create a template for their TypePad blog that is outside the standard norm.  I surfed around and found these - if you have a one, or more, to share that you know of - please do!

Putting Twitter on your TypePad blog

Twitter-logo Did you know that Twitter has a widget for you and that it is incredibly easy to add it to your TypePad blog?  It's true - it ain't no rumor!  If you're a Twitter user (let's face it - who isn't a Twitter user?) - you are already expanding your online presence outside the walls of your blog.  Why not bring that conversation into your blog and increase your visibility and exposure to new readers and visitors?  It's also a great way to include a "Microblog" on your blog on those days you're having that 'not so fresh feeling' and just want to blog in blurbs.  Anyway, I digress ...

Me, on TypePad!

AliblogI've been blogging on the 'net for close to 10 years now - gosh, how old does that make me?  I've explored several different blogging platforms from Movable Type, to WordPress...
