5 Things You Need to Know About Template HTML Coding with Blogger

Have you ever wondered how a computer works? The answer to that is code. Code tells a computer what to do. On my blog, I have used code to create the Angry Birds cursor that you are using right now, and many other things.

Coding lets you go beyond what is already of a computer. Now, if you create a blog, you don't have to code it. Blogger is free, and it looks fine the way it already is. But, if you want to make it better, you can go into your blog's code. For those of you that like to do that, Blogger lets you edit your blog's code to make it the way you want it to be, not the way other people think it should be. It lets you be creative. 

Here are 5 things you need to know about HTML coding with Blogger:

1. To edit your blog's code, go to your blog's template and click on edit HTML. 

2. Always have a backup copy of your blog's original HTML. Coding is a very delicate thing. One wrong space, and you can delete your entire blog or mess it up. Before you go editing y…

Mojang and Telltale Games Collaborate to Announce "Minecraft: Story Mode"

Were you hoping for a Minecraft 2? I need to remind you, that "Minecraft 2" thing was a joke. No, really. Instead, Mojang will be teaming up with Telltale Games to create a series of games called Minecraft: Story Mode.

It will be released episodically, and will be available some time later this year on 
on Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android-based devices.
It will be a narrative driven game, as Minecrafty as possible, but Mojang and TTG do not intend on making an "official" story for Steve, or explaining the world of Minecraft in detail. I will still be a cool game.  more big

Exciting, huh? We should be finding more info on the game pretty soon, and I will also be posting more about it. Be sure to like, subscribe, and stay tuned to more on This and That, Here and There and I will see you next time! Bye!

A History of Arca's Blog
When I was in Kindergarten, I wanted to have my own website. So my dad got me started on Microsoft's blog program. I later became bored from it, and decided not to do it.

When I was in the third grade, I decided to create my own blog. So my dad got me started on Squidoo (Now a part of  HubPages) and he decided to call it This and That, Here and There. It had only 30 views It's address was squidoo.com/arcasblog. Note: That is not a working link anymore. 

That Summer, I found out that HubPages had invaded Squidoo's homepage and was buying it. So all Squidoo blogs were automatically deleted and started on HubPages.

I was still upset about it when I started 4th grade. Since I was really upset about it, my dad got me started on Blogger under the name "Arca's…
