Today’s #blogging101 assignment was to create a blog roll and share it. Again, this was something I had done years ago, so I decided to go through my blog roll and edit out people that I don’t really keep up with or follow anymore. I’m still subscribed to their blogs, but they either haven’t posted in a long time, or we just really lost touch. I have a few new followers that I am also following and am hoping to add them to the list soon. For now I like having my blog roll located on my sidebar, but if it gets bigger, I would consider making it have its own page.
Let me know if you would like to be added to my blog roll. I’m looking for blogs that are similar to mine and/or bloggers that will be continuing to read my blog, provide comments and feedback and overall encouragement.
Yesterday’s #blogging101 assignment was to add a custom header and Widgets to our blogs. Mine have been there for about 5 years now, so I could not remember how to do it. There were some directions, which I did try to follow, but it didn’t work for me. I did end up redoing the order and title of 2 of them, so it wasn’t a total fail. But really nothing to do a whole blog post about.
Today though, we are still working on building connections with fellow bloggers and were asked to follow 4 new blogs. I am going to highlight a few posts from people I am now following:
Arielle at With All My Affection just posted this about tiles but it first caught my eye because of all of her shoes ;)
Rachel at Create a Path posts about children’s books, crafts, and this post about a dream destination that got me itching to travel. How I miss seeing new sites and traveling on a whim, which I cannot do now with a baby.
Victoria at Victoria Feathers is participating in a photoaday challenge. This is a recent post that I liked, showing the before and after editing.
Edwina at Edwina’s Episodes posted this – a sad but funny mishap when getting a tattoo. It also links to another post she did the day before that was very similar, with getting one’s eyebrows tattooed.
So there ya go; just a few posts from a few new people I am following. Go check them out and give them some blog-loving! And again, to anyone reading that is a new follower of mine, Welcome and thank you for checking out my blog. I hope you will stick around and Walk With Me.
These shoes are my latest obsession- leopard print flats with a bow. They are super comfy and cute.
What do you think?
Today’s blogging101 assignment: create and publish your About page, then either adapt it into a widget on your home page or add it to your menu.
Last week when I started this challenge, I actually did this task too, not knowing it was an upcoming assignment. So, yay, assignment complete!
My about me page is just a broad overview of who I am and what I will be blogging about. I don’t think you can really capture a whole person in just a short paragraph or two. I’ll throw these questions out there to you all:
What do you want to know about me? Is there something you would like me to blog about? What was it about me/my blog that drew you in? How did you get here?
You can either leave the answer in the comments section, OR go to my BLOG THIS page and submit your question(s)/ideas there. Then I will create posts to answer your questions.
I completed the first week of Blogging101. While some of the assignments weren’t that new to me, it has been a great step in getting me back to my blog, revising and refreshing some things, and most of all meeting new people. I have found some interesting blogs out there to follow and have gained some new followers as well. I welcome and thank all of you for reading, for your comments, for following me, and just walking with me on this journey. May we continue to support and encourage each other. Have a great weekend everyone!
