    I need a step-by-step guide on how to add a 'shoutbox' to my website's sidebar. (My site: 360rantrave.com).

    ????

    I suck at this stuff. I wish my web skills matched my writing skills. HELP!

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Don't sweat it, we all have to start somewhere.

    I can think of two options for adding a shoutbox to your site:

    1)Get a "shoutbox" plugin like WP Wall or Wordspew. I've never used either of these plugins but they both receive high rankings. Looks like they will create a "shoutbox" widget on your sidebar.

    2)Sign up for a free shoutbox site. (just google "shoutbox" and you'll have plenty to choose from.) Set up your account and get your shoutbox code. Add a text widget to your sidebar and put the shoutbox code inside that widget.

    Good luck!
