This post is in tune with the geek in me. I see a lot of people looking kinda confused when you start mentioning CSS and customizing the design of their WordPress blog, so I thought I’d do a little series of posts on CSS or Cascading Style Sheets.
Sigh…. editorial calendar how do I love thee, let me count the ways…
Before we even delve any further into this topic let me just say that I have a slight obsession with calendars which are …. a part of EVERY good planner. In digital world my two favorites are definitely Google Calendar and Cozi. On my phone, I think I have tried a dozen calendar apps before finally settling on one that is now my go to app which also syncs with my Google Calendar.
Today’s challenge wants us to expand on our most popular blog post. I was a bit surprised to find out that one of my top posts is the one I wrote about being a good neighbor. So let’s expand on that a wee bit more.
Thanks to Zero To Hero, I have found a small plethora (plethora just sounds sooo big… and handful seems too small) of blogs to follow, and I have also learned a few new things. (I’ll save the details for later, 10 to 1 we will have that as a challenge 😉 ). Thanks to that, I started following a few more blogs that aren’t necessarily related to my niche (what niche? The No-Niche niche?) that gave me food for thought.
Today’s challenge wants us to get social, connect at least one social network to our blog. That is already taken care of since day 1 for me. The links to my social networks are in my sidebar. I have a link to my Twitter profile which is not so active because I am in the process of re-branding myself while I re-focus my official website. Next up is my Facebook page which I recently set up to make it different from my personal Facebook profile, also in efforts of re-branding myself. Last but not least is Pinterest link which is actually connected to my other blog because I couldn’t be hassled with creating different profiles for different purposes. That can get tiresome pretty quickly.
I am getting straight to the point here. Today’s challenge prompted us to leave comments on blogs we never commented on before. As always, with commenting I have one lingering conundrum. Some of you already know I run more than one blog. Given that fact, it’s safe to say I comment (or at least try to) on a regular basis. The conundrum is ever present: do I comment on the blogs that are similar to mine? Or do I spread my wings and comment on the blogs that interest me but don’t necessarily deal with the same topic?
