Two Things

I've had a couple people ask me how to create a signature for their blog. I'll get to that in a second. First, I want to ask you all for your help.

I've just joined a fundraising program to help with our adoption expenses. The great thing about this program is that it is FREE and pretty much hassle free. The program is called One Cause and they have teamed up with a bunch of merchants who pledge to donate a certain percentage of the purchase to the National Adoption Foundation. Whatever amount the National Adoption Foundation gets, I get 50% of that in the form of a grant to help with my costs. So, how can you help? You just have to shop. Easy, right? There are hundreds of merchants that participate. If I had only known about this a month ago, I could've had contributions from Turbo Tax,,, Expedia, Netflix, and more. So, you can shop online through the One Cause site with any of these merchants to help us raise money. Better yet, you can register your debit and credit cards so that "brick-and-mortar" merchants who participate in the program will also donate. (Another option is to apply for their Visa card which automatically contributes to the cause no matter where your purchase is made. But that's only if you really want to have another nasty credit card around.)

So here's how to start helping us. Go to and click "Join" in the top right corner. Fill out the info. When it asks for the cause, type in National Adoption Foundation. Once you're all set up, click "My Home". On the left in a box titled My Profile Settings click on "Supporter Crediting." Check the box to enable this and enter this email address: In the same My Profile Settings box, click Credit/Debit Cards and register all your cards. You can shop online through this site to get contributions and anytime you use your debit or credit card at a participating merchant in real life, the contribution will still go through. Again, we get HALF of all contributions as a grant to fund our adoption expenses and it is FREE TO YOU!

Please, please, PLEASE, PLEASE sign up and help us. Hit up your friends and family. Take 3 minutes and register your debit/credit card and never think of it again. With enough people, this can really make a world of difference to us and it doesn't cost you a thing.

Okay. Onto the signature line. I created my signature with this program called My Live Signature. I just used their stock fonts but you can attempt to create your own signature using your mouse or even scan one in. Once you've created the signature, the program will give you a block of HTML code. Copy the code. Go to customize your blog. Click the "Settings" tab. Click "formatting". Scroll all the way to the bottom and paste the code in the "Post Template" box and save it. Voila! Just make sure when you do future posts, you do your writing above the signature code or else your signature will appear at the top of the post instead of the bottom. Now you have a cutie signature!
