Javascript: What is it and where does it go?

For pretty much my whole blogging journey I've been working on coding designs for my sites. CSS was my favorite and HTML is bearable, but Javascript... Oh, the dreaded Javascript...

I could never get Javascript down. I couldn't write my own codes or even make the ones I got off the web work. And I never understood why. So I've created this post today to help those of you who may be struggling as well.

What is it?

Javascipt is the most popular programming language. Like, ever. It can change HTML content, attributes, CSS styles, and much, much more. It makes web pages interactive and can be used in non-web based environments, such as PDFs and desktop widgets. [1]

If you'd like to learn more about Javascript, like who created it and the many things it can do, head on over here. :)

The standard Javascript code:

<script type='text/javascript'>
Your JavaScript coding here
The code above is very important when it comes to adding your Javascript into your Blogger template. If you just slap your code into your template without using the script above, it won't be read properly and could do some terrifying things to your blog. So be careful when implementing Javascript and always make sure you have this code surrounding your hard work.

How to implement it:

Add your code before the </head> tag

How to get there

  1. Choose the blog you'd like to add your Javascript to.
  2. Choose Template then click "Edit HTML".
  3. Paste your code above the </head> tag (if you can't find it, use Ctrl + F).

Add it into a HTML/Javascript gadget

Take your code, head on down to layout, and paste into the gadget. Make sure to save your changes!

As you can see, these steps are actually very simple, and don't require much effort at all. If you have any comments, questions or concerns, feel free to contact me. I love hearing from you guys. :)

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…


Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…
