How to add an image to your sidebar (without a plugin)
***Just after publishing this video, WordPress released an update with a native image widget. The code is still valid though, and it's still necessary to do it this way if you want to add text underneath or above your image since the new widget doesn't allow that.*** Adding an image to your sidebar literally requires one line of code. Visit the blog to read more detailed instructions: http://meynewebsites.com/how-to-add-an-image-to-your-sidebar/ The code is: img src="IMAGE ADDRESS HERE" YouTube won't let me put in opening and closing brackets, so you'll have to remember to do that! Opening carrot bracket at the beginning and a closing one at the end.

How to move name and email labels to the inside of contact forms
How to move name and email from outside a form to inside it: Place your contact form by clicking the “Add Contact Form” button. If you need to change the fields on the form, do that by clicking on the contact form that was added, and then selecting the little pencil icon to edit it. Once you have it how you’d like it, click “Update form” at the bottom. Now we’re going to hop over to the “Text” (HTML) view of your post or page so we can see the shortcode or HTML. (In Jetpack’s case, it is shortcode.) Find the fields you want to change. They will look like label="Name" Highlight label for each one, and replace it with the word placeholder. They will now look like placeholder="Name" Save your work, you’re done!
