Assignment #7 has been encouraging. I am becoming more comfortable with the technicalities of blogging. Even though I was reticent at first to play around with the appearance of my blog, I feel I am slowly progressing and am happy with the end result. This assignment was to add a header and work with the widgets.
The header was fairly easy. I uploaded a picture my husband took of me a few years back, when we stopped at an amazing abandoned farmhouse while on our way to Writing On Stone Provincial Park. The roof had caved in, the paint had been worn off by the wind and the trees had grown wild around what had been the farmyard. The memories we made that day linger in my mind reminding me that beauty can be found anywhere, even in the death of a once loved vibrant home.
Widgets are the bits of information added to the sidebar of the page which help readers access what I have to offer. Once I figured out what Widgets are, what they do and where I could find them, I removed a couple of the sections, added a photo gallery, a contact sections and a following button. Cool! I filled the gallery with a sampling of photos I’ve taken over the years, of places I’ve been, things I’ve seen and a few of my creative endeavours.
Ultimately I believe I have perked up my blog, giving my readers an opportunity to see me a little more clearly.
I hope you enjoy your visit. Let me know what you like and what you don’t.
