Blog Tip #2
Jessica over at Country Whispers asked how I do my printable recipes so I'm doing a little blog tip for printable stuff. I am sure there are a dozen other ways this can be done and some of them are probably easier than my way BUT here's what worked for me.
I started a totally different blog and called it mycountryblogofthisandthatprintable. I keep this blog hidden on my blog list under my profile because I only want it used to store my printable recipes. No comments, no followers, etc. To get this blank blog, here is what you need to do:
Create a new blog.
Once the new blog is created, go to customize then choose page elements. Opened the main blog post box by clicking edit and make sure all the boxes are unchecked so there's no time, comment, posted by stuff at the bottom and save.
Click edit on the other elements and if you see a remove box, click it. You should be able to remove all of them except the header box.
Now to get rid of anything else that's left:
Click on edit html and make a back up of your template by clicking download full template (just in case we goof!)
Download the following file and go to edit html in your new blog. Right click and choose select all and then paste the downloaded code into the html box. (this is easier than trying to tell you what to delete and what to leave behind).
Blank Blog Code.txt
It will ask you if you want to permanently delete the header widget, yes you do so hit confirm and save. View your blog and you should have a blank page white page ready for your first blog post. Post your recipe (or whatever you are making printable) just like you normally would on blogger and then go back to your main blog and link to it in your post.
I made the little Printable Recipe graphic to use as my link button. You can also just type Printable Recipe and make it clickable.
