Today was interesting. Didn’t really understand what I was doing or what I was reading. Today I had to adjust the visibility of one of my widgets. Once I started  reading how to do it, I was so confused.

I try to understand what they want me to know on widget visibility but sometimes things can be so confusing.

Areas we covered today were:

  • How to configure widget visibility settings.
  • Ways to use widget visibility to your advantage.

Intermediate Customization, Day 7: Custom Text And Image Widgets

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.

Today is Day 6 and today we organized our sidebar. Today we had to add 1 widget to our sidebar. However, we didn’t have to keep it. The areas we covered today were:

  • What widgets are and how they’re useful.
  • How to Choose the right widgets for your blog.
  • Basic ways to customize widgets.

The one thing I want to learn is how to move your widgets around to where you want them. I know it sounds crazy but I’d like to learn this in case I decide I want to move my widgets around. Maybe it’s not crazy after all.
