Viv,
I don't know if there's a way to do that. If you've seen it on another blog, I'd either ask that person directly... or google it.

But... If you go into blogger, and click on your blog list element, then you can change the amount of blogs that show up. Like... set it to 5. Then I believe a little "show more" will show up so that we can click on it to see them all.

I personally like seeing all the blogs. I've found some amazing sites that way! I try to go through my list and remove anyone who hasn't posted in a very long time.

Your blog is so bright and cheery :) Love visiting here for a morning "pick me up"!

I created a post with a list of my blogs, and then I postdated it, so that when I published it, it wasn't my current post. Does that make sense? And then I copied the address of that post and put a link to it on my sidebar. Hope this helps!

Nuts... I don't think that went through. Here it is again!

To add a bunch of links below your header. Ones that say "home" "about me" "contact me" "blogs I like to read" etc...

First you should create the Pages you want.

Go to POSTING
then go to EDIT PAGES
then to NEW PAGE

Now you can add your title "about me"
Then your text, just like a NEW POST. You will not need to make a "home" Page because that is automatically added when you add the Pages widget.

Add all the Pages you want (up to 10) following the before mentioned steps. If you want to add a page that says "recipes" that will lead your readers to all the post that you have LABELED "recipes" then follow these steps.

Open your blog in a new window
Find a Post with the Label you are searching for
Click on the Label link
Now all the posts that I have LABELED with "recipes" will be available below.
Copy the URL ADDRESS


Go back to the NEW PAGE page
Look for the small button that says "Link"
Paste the URL ADDRESS
Add text that says something like "Click Here for My Recipes"
I wish it were a direct link- but that's as good as it gets for now


Now that you have created all the pages you want it's time to move the widget under your header.

Go to LAYOUT
locate your Pages Widget (or add the Pages widget if it's not up yet)
Grab and carry the widget until a section is highlighted just under your header
Drop the widget
PREVIEW and then SAVE
I hope that helps. I'm going to do this one of these days... lol
