I was doing some surfing last night and dropped in on the ”Succesful Blog” by Liz Strauss. She had a great post about a smart banner that takes your rss feed and creates an animated gif that you can use on top blog sites and in other places where you need a banner. Liz links to Blogosquare where you can get the complete instructions to make one for yourself.
Here is one I did up late last night quickly for my Video Rambler blog.
What a great idea for a banner! It presents the latest headlines from your blog, and is sure to catch peoples attention to bring in even more visitors.
