Blog Game Thursday: Can You Beat Minnie?

I was just about to post another Dress Competition Blog Game Thursday, but my Uncle Rex beat all of you to it. He sent me this picture of The Minnie Pearl Dress, and I can't imagine that any of you can beat this design for me.

Go ahead and try.

(I did not post this from the Philippines...just thinking ahead so that AmyT doesn't stop commenting.)


Here's Mungo's entry (isn't it nice when certain people have a reason to dress up in drag? By the way, Mungo, what was your reason? This contest?)


Love the dress.


And Michelle, is this one OK? So fitting, with "Dorothy and the King of Darkness" coming soon...

Does it have to be a dress?

I don't know how to attach a photo here, so I'll just send one straight to you, smarj...

I wanted to submit a picture of Glinda, the good witch, because I always loved her dress. I couldn't figure out how to post a picture of it either. Maybe Brian, the super genius, could give us a tutorial. Then we could post really cool pictures of stuff. How about it Brian – will you tell us how to do it?

Yes - I will show you how to post a link to a picture (or anything on the web), but I'm sad to say there's no intuitive way to do it. You have to write it out in HTML code. It's pretty basic code, but it's still code and therefore not intuitive.

Here's a link to a brief tutorial page with the code. Note that in this example where he has "resumepage.html" you will want to include the full web address starting with "http://www....". You can copy that directly from the address bar in your web browser.

Here's a tip for pictures - When you see a picture on a web page that you want you can right click that picture and select either "Show Picture" or "View Image" (depending on what browser you use) and it will show only that image. The address bar will then contain the direct address for that picture.

Clear as mud?

Hey Brian, thanks - I do know how to code in HTML. I tried it but didn't have a lot of time and it didn't work the first time. So I'll mess with it a little longer (when I'm not at work taking up valuable time goofing off) thanks for the tip!

Brian, for all of your tutorial help, your link doesn't work. I will not tell your superiors, but Michelle may be a bit disillusioned.
