How To Widen MailChimp Body and Sidebar Newsletter

MailChimp: “MailChimp helps you design email newsletters, share them on social networks, integrate with services you already use, and track your results. It’s like your own personal publishing platform.”

Mail chimp templates seem to have a real problem with the width, and sometimes they are so skinny your emails that you send out can look stupid and ridiculous!

There is a easy fix to force it to widen, click on the edit button of the body or sidebar, then click source, and add the following code to the bottom of the page.

<img height="1" src="space.gif" width="500" />

Change the width to whatever you want and click save. Problem solved!


Facebook Joke

Have you heard of the The Konami Code?

Facebook has implemented it on their site now. To activate it, type this on your keyboard when you are on facebook.

Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Enter.

Magic! It kinda is hard to read where you type now though

What is the difference between Facebook and Twitter?

Nearly every day someone asks me why is twitter better, or why get twitter when facebook does the same thing?

In a quick overview, twitter is simply facebook status’s but with a more public view and live photo streaming.


Side By side comparison:

Facebook: Requires two-way verification for full sharing between two people. If someone doesn’t accept your friend request, you most likely can’t see what they are up to, because most people stick with default strong privacy settings. Facebook is more for your tight circle of friends where you can share events such as birthday parties and share pictures of them and yourself.

Twitter: You can follow just about anyone you want, Obama, Kevin Rudd, major celebrities and your friends. Just click follow and you see a real news feed from everyone your following.

Tags & Replies:

Facebook: Facebook doesn’t have tags, only replies, and these replies aren’t seen unless you visit the repliee’s wall.

Twitter: You can use tags such as #event which is sort of like a reference of where you are or what your doing. People can search for the tag and see everyone else tagging the same thing. For Eg. Your at a conference, search #conference and you can see all the other tweeters bagging the speaker out and discussing it further. To reply to someone just write @name at the start of your message to reply to someone’s tweet.


Facebook: Can share photos and tag people in them and create albums of specific events. Not as “live” as twitter.

Twitter: Live Photo tweeting. At a cool place, or skating in the park, take a photo on your phone, and tweet it and everyone can see it live as it comes through on their feed.
