How To Add Forum To Your Blogspot Blogs (DIY)

Published

on

Since your blog is on blogspot, you may be wondering how you can add forum easily. Well, as of this moment, you can add forum in two ways. Unlike wordpress where there are plugins that take care of that.

What Is Forum?
Forum is another section/page on your blog where your visitors drop query or ask you any question as per what they read or any action they took on your blog or ecommerce website.

Why you need forum
If your blogging is mainly in the ecommerce niche, education/teaching people, technology, or tutorial, you should consider having a forum.

Now let’s begin!
As I said earlier, there two ways to add forum to your blogspot blog. Which are 1) Google group forum and 2) Nabble forum.

Let’s start with Google group forum.

1). Google Group Forum

Google Forum

This is easy to do. All you need to create the forum is your gmail account.

Before you go to the link, have a page already created. You can name it FORUM. Then,

a). Navigate to Google Groups and fill required details then click on Create.

b). Click on Invite people to join group to build some strength.

c). Then go to Customize your group’s setting. On the next page you will see an option to embedding your group.

d). Just copy the code next to it and save it temporary anywhere.

e). Go to the blank page you already created and Paste the code in the HTML section and publish page.

f). View this page and boom, your forum is ready.
You see, its so easy.

2). Nabble Free Forum.
Just as i explined in the first approach, create a blank page and name it something like FORUM. Then,

a). Go to Nabble forum

b). Click Create Free Forum on the home page.

c). Fill the required details such as user name, email address, password, forum name and description (Remember that this account will be the moderator of the forum).

d). Click on Create Account and check you mail to activate nabble account (keep in mind that you must activate your account in order to have access to all features).

e). Navigate to Options =. Application => Change Appearance. Here you can edit several things such as font, color, preferences and CSS. Add your own CSS to provide it look.

Nabble Forum

f). Change Forum Appearance to how you want it.

g). Now go to Application => Change Application Type. There you can categorize your forum to make it appear real. Choose category according to your need and click on Save Changes.

You can modify several other things from application menu such as name, description, language, domain name, title, mega tag, add-ons and Google analytics.

h). To add categories in your blog go to Options Structure => Create New Sub-Forum. Provide it name and description then click on Create Sub-Forum.

Rest of the things you can easily edit which are manage pinned topics, manage sub-forums and Users (Change permission, manage users groups, manage subscribers, manage banned users).

It’s not over yet, after that we need to put newly created forum code in our blogger blog.

i). Navigate to Options Embedding options. On the next page copy the JavaScript Code and save it anywhere.

j). Login into your blogger dashboard then open the blank page you already created, Go to HTML mode, then paste the code, and then publish. Boom!

That’s it, simply open this web page and you will see nabble forum.

NOTE: Of recent, I found out that nabble forum doesn’t work on encrypted blogspot blogs again. So, you may see that it stops working as soon as you migrate your blogspot blogs from HTTP to HTTPS.

Did you get it? Let me know if you do!

BOOKS

What Makes The GREAT Great?

Published

on

Yeah, what makes the great great? You have seen their glories and you should read their stories. What makes the great great is a book written by Dennis P. Kimbro, Ph.D. I didn’t know about the book till I got to a bookshop In Lagos. Then I went in search of the 50th law of power by Robert Greene and 50cent. I couldn’t lay my hands on it and I asked the book seller to give me any nice book and he did give me What Makes The Great Great. I was glad he did.

“If you want to be great and successful, you must walk hand-in-hand with great and successful people.” Nido Qubein

The book tells of the stories of great men and women, how they were able able to stand out among the crowd and made names for themselves. The author introduces inspiring people who have achieved greatness in their own unique ways, then highlights the qualities each of us must develop before we reach our full potential.

Regardless of your definition of success, the book provides approach of turning your dream to reality. Greatness is guaranteed when you discover life’s true calling, live more courageously, access knowledge and creativity of your mind and embrace integrity in everything you do.

We all have seeds of greatness in us, what makes the great great provides the tools to discover and nourish those seeds.

Dennis P. Kimbro asked some great men and women the question, What makes the great great? See some of their responses below:

When Bill Pinkney [the first African-American to sail solo around the world and the forty-first man to do so] was asked what makes the great great, his response was; “Don’t wait! Now is the time to fulfil your destiny. We must act with courage; look forward with hope; and view life through a lens that defines what can be done rather than what cannot be done. If you are willing to work and never, never quit, you can make your dream come true.” What does this message mean to you?

Percy Sutton said, “If you have but one wish let it be for an idea.”

Robert E. Johnson, founder of Black Entertainment Television said, “Life is a grindstone, But whether it grinds you down or polishes you up depends upon what you are made of. And Rev Jesse Jackson added, “You may not be responsible for being knocked down, but you are certainly responsible for getting back up.”

What makes the great great

Henry Park of Park Sausage said, “In one hand I have a dream and in the other I have an obstacle. Tell me, which one grabs your attention?”

When Reverend Ike was asked what makes the great great, he said, “Do what I have done. “Open up a can! The world belongs to those who say I can.”

Mae Jemison, America’s first black female astronaut, when was asked what makes the great great said, “Greatness can be captured in a lifestyle. Life is God’s gift to you, style is what you make of it.”

Quincy Jones said, “Greatness occurs when your children loves you, when your critics respects you, and when you have peace of mind.”

Cornel West, an author and a professor said, “If you want to be great, you must serve willingly and love greatly.”

Oseola McCarty said, “Do as much as you can for as many as you can.”

And according to my observation, the greats are the people who understands what it means to simplify. They are the people who face one thing, face one passion and give in their best and do not believe in being jack of all trades. They are the people with determination and unshaken focus to do what they put before them. They are the people who have desires that burn. They are the people who say I will do this and never give up until they do. – SirPhren

Do you want to be great in that field you have chosen? Now you have just read about the opinions of some of the great men and women who have lived before us. Some of what they said is still valid and it will be nice to practice them.

There is only one thing that can stop you from being great. Do you want to know? Only you can stop you.

Robert Browning said, “When a man’s fight begins within himself, he is worth something.” And Bhagavad-Gita concluded, “A man’s own self is his friend, a man’s own self is his foe.”

If you really want to get your life together, this is one of the books you should probably read.

Which of these answers to what makes the Great great your favorite? Do you also know of other qualities of the Greats? Do share with me in the comment below.
