Blog Designing: Falling Snow

Hello!

Today I am going to be doing a kind of post that I have never done before; blog design!  Soooooo...let me know if you like this post in the comments so that I can do some more :)  Also, while you're here, would you mind filling out the little survey on my sidebar?  Thanks  ♥

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

To create falling snow on your blog, all you need is the HTML code below which you will need to copy and then paste into an HTML/JavaScript widget on your sidebar!  You can edit a few aspects of the code to make sure it is suited to your blog and personal preference.




<script type="text/javascript" src="http://static.tumblr.com/qsifglb/mZjl87ts1/f8.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
snowStorm.snowColor = '#eed4ff'; //
snowStorm.flakesMaxActive = 50;
</script>





~ Change the code highlighted in pink to any HTML color code to change the color of your snowflakes. (you can find a list of color codes here)

~ Change the code highlighted in blue to any number below 64 (that's the maximum....I don't know why!) to decide how many snowflakes will fall at once.



And that is all!  Let me know if you try this out on your blog so that I can take a look :)
