I’ve been sitting on this assignment for about six or so hours. Monkeying around with my blog page is not something I feel comfortable with, but I’m a gamer. I’ll give it a try and see what happens.
Today’s assignment: Browse the blogs you follow and note a custom touch you love. Tell the blogger you love it, and interpret it for your own blog.
I’ve been playing around, though it seems as though I get to a place via different routes that I can’t keep track of what I’m dong. So, I thought I would do some step by step this is what I did, this is what I saw, and this is what happens. I am content with the header and picture, but I really don’t know anything about navigation or custom menus. So, I’m going back to appearance and menus to see if there’s something there.
I was told to go into my Dashboard and go to appearance and go to custom. Right off the bat, I get confused because there’s custom design and customize. We’re going for customize. And now I’m looking for ways to help me “Make changes to theme settings using the control panels on the right.”
I don’t really have a clue whether the menus came out the way I want, but I titled it as experimenting to see what would happen. My blog page is in need of some serious re-tuning since the page order is not even close to what I want, so I’m going to follow these instructions for creating a home page. 1. Okay, I added new and I titled it home, but don’t I already have a home page. Type the content you want displayed on the front page of my blog. And what content would that be? I clicked out by mistake, but I don’t want to create another home just in case there’s one floating out there.
I think I’m done with this task. I would much rather spend the rest of my evening looking at the number 26. I did give the Zero to Hero assignment a valiant try. Hopefully I didn’t mess up my blog too bad.
Eventually my goal is to have my menu’s line up with my categories. I’d love to have a zero to hero link to all of the zero to hero assignments, not just the one I created on day such and such. I don’t know what sticky’s are for. If there’s anyone who knows how to straighten my blog page out, please let me know, I’m all ears.
