Day Five – blogging 201

20151208_223950.jpgAs the first week draws to a close and the relief that the weekend has arrived I tackled the task of the day.

I’ve managed to add the most viewed top pages to my header. It appears as a drop down menu. Ideally I’d have like it in the sidebar menu but I’ve yet to discover why this won’t work. I’d still like to add blogs that I follow but no idea why this fails to appear.

I’ve also added similar posts to the bottom of a read post with a thumbnail picture. I’m sure there are other widgets I’ve tweaked along the way.

My last task of the day is to shut down all ways of communicating for this evening as sleep is high on the agenda. Happy reading and blogging folks. 

Day four -blogging 201

My task today was far more interesting than you’d initially think. Learning how to monitor stats for your page. Use tags and categories more efficiently. Just knowing how and why this task should be undertaken was quite satisfying.

I’ve also worked on yesterday’s task more this evening – my layout. It’s better than my trial from last night but have another small problem that I haven’t quite managed to solve. I wanted to be able to display the lovely people whom I’m following. Despite adding the widget and updating the page, it still won’t show on my blog in the sidebar. No doubt I will get to the bottom of this one in time.

In the meantime I’m enjoying meeting, chatting and reading some fabulous blogs!
