How to put a cool real-time clock in your blog

You can quickly and easily have a real-time clock like those above, in your blog, either in the sidebar or within an actual post. Here's how to do it: First, head over to ClockLink.com and choose the design you like best. There are loads to choose from in a variety of colours and styles, so you're sure to find something that will match your overall colour scheme!

Click on the "Get Html" button beneath the image and choose your time zone (plus colour scheme, if applicable). Then highlight the "Embed" code (the second set of code) as the "script" code doesn't always work, especially with Blogger templates!

To insert your clock into a blog post, ensure you are editing the HTML code (ie: you are not using the wysiwyg editor) and insert the code where you want the clock to be displayed. To insert into the sidebar, you can either open your template and insert into the HTML whewre you would like to display your clock, or add this to an HTML/Javascript widget (eg: for Blogger and Wordpress users).

All clocks from ClockLink.com are free to use but do include a link back to ClockLink. However, I think it's a small price to pay for a great looking add-on!
