My gift to you of music to download is this rendition of Mahalia Jackson's "Silent Night" as remixed by 46bliss.

The original track of Jackson's "Silent Night" on Columbia Records became one of the best-selling singles in the history of Norway. When she sang the song on Denmark's national radio, more than twenty thousand requests for copies poured in.

 Click images above to be directed to free holiday music

Today while I was enjoying my morning cuppa at my local coffee house, I downloaded from iTunes a version of "Silent Night" by the Temptations as part of Apple's Free Single of the Week.

Then I discovered that Amazon also offers free music downloads. In fact, their seasonal promotion is called "25 Days of Free" and features one free holiday song to download daily until Christmas.  You can get fantastic melodies of all your Christmas and New Year's favorites from a variety of super awesome recording artists including Chris Isaak and the Indigo Girls. Each day is like a melodic advent calendar that's such a delight you really shouldn't miss out.

Both the iTunes single and the Amazon offerings are available for a limited time so hurry and click through the images above to get your free and legal copy of holiday musical cheer.

In celebration of holiday season I want to gift visitors to this blog with a Frosty the Snowman wallpaper for your iPhone and iPod Touch.

You can download the images as well as installation instructions by clicking on widget below. The downloaded file will have no holiday message so as to keep your lock screen and/or background clutter free.

At the above widget you will find two files: one for your lock screen and the other one to set as a wallpaper screen. And, as I mentioned, included are instructions to install these images on your phone.

Happy holidays to everybody, everywhere!

LinkWithin - A Widget for Blogger Related Posts With Thumbnail Images

Hi Eeer-body!

(nod to the Halloweenstress :)

After seven fabulous months at this awesome job I'm about to get laid off next week. During my tenure the company I worked for launched two products. One did very well and I want to brag about it (but won't for privacy reasons) and the other will do well if given time.

However, the parent company I work for has pulled the plug on the late-blooming product so there goes my job as I was one of the last hired so therefore one of the first to be let go. There's talk that the fearless leaders of my company may reconsider their decision but so far it's just talk and I'm hitting the ground running to find another job as soon as possible. I don't know if after I become fun-employed if I'll be blogging again or what but we'll see. My first priority is to line up my next job.

Right now I want to talk about how to customize the "LinkWithin" widget which is designed to keep your readers engaged by featuring related posts with thumbnails appearing under each post and linking to related stories from your blog archive. It makes your old posts accessible to readers of your blog and I think it's a pretty nifty tool.  I began using it late last year when I noticed other crafty bloggeristas had installed it on their lovely blogs.

However, there's just one thing about LinkWithin that always bugged me: by default LinkWithin's related posts thumbnails appear after each post body, ABOVE the post footer. That means it appears (in most cases) above your signature image (if you use one like I do), labels, comments link and timestamp.

I think this placement is disruptive to the design flow of my blog. Personally I prefer the thumbnails to appear BELOW the post footer so I figured out how to fix that and now here's how you can do it:

1) Go to your dashboard and click Design > Edit HTML, and click on the Expand Widget Templates checkbox. Then search to find the following code:

<b:include data='post' name='post'/> 
2) Copy the following code:
<div class="linkwithin_div"></div>
3) And paste the snippet right after the line you just searched, like so:
<b:include data='post' name='post'/>
<div class="linkwithin_div"></div>
4) Click save. You're done!
