Imagine variously-shaped, white and blue snow crystals in a slow, carefree drift over your blog. That would just be festive!
Elated is putting it mildly when I learned that falling snow can be added to rainbow journal (or any WordPress based website). When I first encountered falling snow, leaves, hearts, smileys, clover leaves and just about every item imaginable from several other sites, I thought it would require a lot of codes and even longer hours customizing it. I couldn’t be more wrong.
Those fancy snow flakes are for your infinite enjoyment in just four ridiculously simple steps: Search, Install, Customize and Enjoy (more like revel for me, hahaha!).
Just go to your Plugins menu and search for “snow” or “snow flake”. Choose which plugin suites your taste and install. I’m using Snow, balloons and more by Nicolas Kuttler, I chose this because it offers some customization (which shows up in the Settings menu).
Apart from snow flakes, there are several other images to choose from. The Pro settings gives you further control, from size, to speed, even wind strength. Below are the settings I used.
I really enjoy the falling snow effect on my blog. One time I find myself staring at it until the snowfall stopped (which is set at 10 minutes). Perhaps my fascination is due to an extreme fondness of the Christmas holidays or maybe because I live in a tropical country. Whatever the reason, there is no denying it makes rainbow journal… merrier. And I love it!
