Daily Prophet, Issue 1

Early House Points
The first House Points that you are eligible for are for placing the HSKS4 logo in the side bar of your blog. There is a tutorial, which is linked to the right under important info., that will help you in placing the HSKS4 logo on your blog. Actually linking the logo will take a little more finesse and require a little HTML knowledge and that you host the image on a remote server. Nevertheless, here is the code that you will need to link the logo:

<center><a href="http://www.hsks4.blogspot.com/">

<img border="0" src="http://www.your-site.com/hsks4logo.jpg" /></a>
</center>Be sure to remove any spaces between brackets.

Blogging in Character

I must congratulate one of our early participants! Such an ingenious idea! Ms. Beanswallow has signed up for a gmail account, which gives her access to a Blogger account under the same name, and has decided to blog in character. What a wonderful way to communicate with your House and the other participants during the swap. Of course you don't all have to run out and create new blogs, but I thought that I'd bring this idea to light. If you choose to blog in character, please inform me of your character's blog url when you sign up and I will link you.

Have realised that a Mother of three young wizards would hardly be a first-year at Hogwarts! Nevertheless I'm going with it because I'd rather blog as some-one like me, than as an 11-year-old!

Jenean - Are you Winifred Wartbobble, and if so is that actually your picture (looks great!)?

Also (sorry about all these comments!) do you know the sign-up form doesn't ask for blog addresses? How will I earn my house points for putting a button link on (I did it!!)

Minerva Kwikspell said...

I also noticed that the sign-up form didn't ask the blog addresses. I'm sure our Headmistress has a plan for that though. ;)

I am very excited as this will be my first HSKS! I included my new blog address next to my secret e-mail address on my application.

Jenean said...

Oh!!! A definite boo-boo on my part! Thanks for noticing, I will definitely change that now.

I have the logo in my side bar and a link to the blog, but not a combination of the two. I am technologically challenged, but what does one expect from a student at a school that doesn't use computers or even ballpoint pens.

Cassandra said...

Should we email you our blog address if we have already sent in our application? I sent it in at about 4am EST. Thanks

Penelope Pinkstone said...

Aahhhh! Are there two Penelope Pinkstones? I am one, under Gryffindor, but there is another under Ravensclaw. That could get confusing. Please advise.

Thanks,

PP

Jenean said...

It's okay. Your actually names are quite different, so not to worry.

Narcissa said...

Olive Bloomslang said...

It took a bit of Badger determination, but I was able to post the swap logo as a clickable link to my blog. ::celebration dance:: And I did it without having to hex my muggle computer!
