Today we went over how to create custom texts and create a custom image. The areas that were covered were:

  • Image widget basics.
  • Custom image widget inspiration.
  • How to create a custom image with PicMonkey or Canva.
  • How to use custom images in text widgets.

Why use text widgets? Image widgets can be used for just about anything; we particularly appreciate when bloggers use them to highlight social networking profiles, direct our attention to special features, or draw us into different sections of their blogs. They’re eye-catching, and encourage readers to explore.

Fundamentals Of Blogging: Day 12- Make Some New Connections

bloggingu-blue-logo

For Day 12 of my Fundamentals Of Blogging Course, we had to go to The Daily Post Prompts page and scroll down to the grid of responses. Then I had to pick 6 responses that caught my eye and read them. Then I had to leave comments on at least 2 of the responses. If you skipped the day before, then all you had to do was to leave 2 comments anywhere you’d like and follow 2 new blogs.

Even though I may have the choice to skip a day, my thoughts are if you don’t do the course work you don’t learn anything. Also, if you took this course then do the course work.
