For the Bling Yer Blog assignment, I did not know exactly what I wanted to do right away. Before this assignment was even given (during the creation of the blog) I had already looked through all the themes, chose the one I wanted, and changed my header. So, I already had the blog looking pretty much like I wanted it to.
I decided to revisit the themes to see if I wouldn’t mind changing it, but after previewing various themes, I preferred the one that I had originally chose. So, I decided to play around with the widgets. I tried some out, but the only one I really liked was the Archives widget. I liked that it allowed me to see my posts by month. It is perfect for the purposes of this class because I (and you) can go to various months and find assignments by due dates.
I also decided to create a new page. I titled it “What’s This Blog About.” I added a menu to the top of my page so individuals visiting the page can understand the reason for posting the blog posts I have. I know I only made a few changes, but I think they’re practical changes that actually benefit the page, which I think is important.
