This page contains links to post related to my participation in the Blogging 101 course during January 2015. Some assignments did not have an associated post.
Friday – Exploring Themes Today’s assignment: try out at least three other themes — even if you’re happy with the one you first chose. Try one you’re drawn to, and one you would never use.
Tuesday – Theme Customizing Today’s assignment: create and upload a simple header, background, or both. Already done? Try a custom widget
Wednesday – Commenting Today’s assignment: leave comments on at least four blogs that you’ve never commented on before.
Friday – Widgets Today’s assignment: add and/or customize two widgets, one text-based and one image-based.
Wednesday – Commenting (Again!) Today’s assignment: read six posts written in response to the same prompt, and leave comments on at least two of them.
Thursday – New Post Styles Today’s assignment: build your storyteller’s toolbox by publishing a post in another format or a style you’ve never used before.
Friday – Color and Font Today’s assignment: open the Customizer and try out some new fonts and colors (and backgrounds and/or headers, if you’re still undecided).
Monday – Social Networks Today’s assignment: if you’re active on a social network, set up Publicize to link the account to your blog or add a widget highlighting your profile. If you’re not, explore your social options to see whether one might be helpful.
“Plugging Into Social Network”
Thursday – Your Brand Today’s assignment: extend your brand with one of the following: a custom Blavatar, a custom image widget, or a Facebook fan page.
Friday – Feature Posts
