I have completed the Blogging from A to Z Challenge.
26 posts, a post for each week day and Saturday in April.
I have visited in excess of 200 blogs. Some that I have enjoyed, some that have completely mystified me and one or two that have shocked me.
I have got a little more comfortable with the ‘craft’ of blogging, how to post, how to make a post attractive to search engines and how to comment. I think that this will be useful.
Annoyingly, I have also learned that I will need to change my theme (again). The one that I am using here is a free theme and thus a little limited.
There are some blogs out there that are stunning to look at.
Should you require highly unusual features, such as words not splitting over the end of a line, then you need to ‘add some code’ or purchase a theme that automatically does this. I concede that I find it difficult to believe that there is much of a blogging market that intentionally uses a theme incapable of justifying text, but perhaps I am old fashioned that way.
Last time that I attempted a theme change – I bombarded my Facebook wall and twitter account with hundreds of automated messages.
A lesson has been how easy it is to find myself doing a million and one things. In fact ANY thing that is NOT writing a novel.
But that is for another post.
Time for a lie down.
