Things that make you go “Hmmmm…” | WordPress Snow

I see many have discovered the WordPress Snow option for those using sites – which this site is a .com site.  When I first came across a .com blog with snow falling, I thought it was the coolest thing, but couldn’t figure out how they did it.  So google-away I go.  For those who do not know, you may toggle this feature under “Settings” then “General.”

I’m posting about this because I just noticed something….  The snow is interactive, and on most blogs, the flakes will be drawn towards your mouse icon.  However, I just ran across a .com blog where the flakes go AWAY from the mouse icon.

Things that make you go “hmmmmmm….”


  1. What makes me go “hmmmm” is wondering why people so often, as in the people who say they are republicans, can all have systematic amnesia when they show their support of Newt Gingrich.

  2. I’ve had the snow on my blog for three or fours years, sometimes turning it off if I thought it was too distracting for a serious story. I’ve thought it particularly appropriate for a blog based in Denver. But I’d never noticed it’s interactive. I thought the movement was random. You’re so observant!

    • I wondered if the snow was available in the past. I just started with WordPress in April, so this is my first Christmas snow. My other sites or sites, so I did get to choose a plugin on those and put two little snowmen on the site, and my video site. But I didn’t want the snow on top of the photos, so left motleyphotos alone.

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
