NOdometer

I've noticed someone poking around this little blog the last few days. Not just any someone but someone based in Washington, D.C. whose names you'll recognize: Townhall.com and the Heritage Organization. Did I feel speshul or whut?!

I felt even more speshul this morning when I received an email from an actual person at The Heritage Foundation that reads in part:

I see that you have taken quite an interest in Social Security reform, and have linked to our websites before. I thought that you might be interested in a new gadget that we've recently added to our website.
The gadget — the NOdometer — "measures what saying no to social security reform is costing the next generation" and is now in my sidebar. And every second, the already horrifying amount increases even more.

If you'd like to add it to your site, the script is here.

If after you've put it in your sidebar it doesn't display correctly or just doesn't work, it didn't for me either. It does now because I took the emailer up on his offer of help IF I needed any.

(Me? Need help with HTML or coding or . . . WAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!)

Anyway, try the original first but if you need the modified script they provided by return email, let me know in a reply.

Oh, and the next time somebody tells you that little blogs don't get noticed . . .

I've been trying to add that NOdometer to my blog as well...to no avail.

Any ideas?

Try this:

Take the script you got from the Heritage Foundation and change the URL in the SRC= tag to:

http://www.heritage.org/research
/features/socialsecurity/js/SSCl
ockblogspot.js

No breaks though. It's a slightly smaller version that Blogger's default sidebar settings seemed to find more acceptable.

Let me know if it works, okay?
