Add an iPod

  1. Go to (you will need to create an account for this website)
  2. Once logged in go to "Create Playlist" (the #1 "Search Music" tab should be highlighted)
  3. Then just go ahead and search for the name of songs
  4. You need to click the "+" icon to add them to your iPod
  5. When you have enough songs click on the #2 "Customise" tab where you can choose a 'skin' (what you want your iPod to look like) and other colours/styles
  6. Then simply click #3 "Save Playlist", give it a name and click on the big green "SAVE (get code)" button
  7. The code you use is under the heading "Post Your Playlist to Blogger"
  8. This code needs to be copied and pasted into your blog
  9. Once in your blog go to "Layout" then click "Add a Gadget" then click "HTML/Javascript"
  10. Then just post the code mixpod gives you
Hope that this might help people wanting to put some tunes on their blog. It might sound a bit confusing but if I can do it anyone can!


  1. Hi Nari,

    I have no idea where you got this from, but i love it! I hope you don't mind as i have added some music to my own blog.

    This concept would be a hit in the classroom. I don't believe students would 'power down' quite so much if they had opportunities to combine this type of technology into their learning. By providing our students with what they want as well as what they need, we are on the right track.

    Love it, love it, love it.
    Chat soon,

  2. Hi Kerri,

    My little sister showed me how to add the iPod and I love the fact that it allows me (and others) the opportunity to personalise our blogs using music. I've checked out your blog and your iPod looks fantastic. You have video and sparkles, pretty flash!
    I have to agree that this technology would be a good way of engaging our students in the classroom. I can't help but think that we are only just scratching the surface with all that is available to us and our future students.
    Talk soon,
