I have decided to make some adjustments to my blog-- nothing major, but just some things like adding social media icons, some new tabs, maybe actually categorizing my posts, ect.
Bear with me in the next few weeks- there might be something looking kind of wonky when you visit my blog, but it is all for the best. I promise. Even if you aren't interested in blogging/ are going to skip this post, I would still like to hear from you:
-What is your favorite blog (design-wise and writing/content-wise)?
-Is there anything obvious (or not) that I need to include on my side bar, ect?
I am not going to give any of my own advice on blogging (yet) because I still have a ton to learn, and any suggestions would be welcome, but I will share a few websites with you that I have found tutorials on, ect. (If you have more, PLEASE let me know! I would love to learn!)
1. Codeacademy- I have not completed it yet, but it has a great HTML 101 course that has been helpful. During this whole design process thing, I haven't done anything major with HTML coding, but it has come in handy when playing with my social media icons, ect.
2. 10 Blogging Commandments- these are nothing super specific, but they are good things to keep in mind.
3. Social Media Buttons and Tutorials- I don't have them up yet, but I have been working on them. Believe it or not-- my blog has a twitter. Don't get too excited, I haven't started using it yet, but soon it will be filled with all sorts of running (and non-running) tweets! So follow up! I might even get crazy with an Instagram and even a Facebook page-- so watch the icons. If you want some for your blog, you can Google "Free Social Media Icons" or use the link from Her New Leaf that I am using.
The whole "Primp My Blog" series on Her New Leaf is great. She includes guest post instructions, signature image creation techniques (which I desperately need to do-- the little pictures with your blog name on it that looks super cute and everybody else has), free fonts, and pin it buttons. Basically everything.
