Day 13: Build a (Better) Blogroll
By now, you’ve made some community connections and have at least a few favorite reads — after all, you’ve been following new topics and blogs and commenting, and are on the receiving end of comments and follows yourself. Today, you’ll continue weaving the fabric of the blogosphere, using one of its essential tools: link love.
Today’s Assignment: Create, edit, or expand your blogroll.
I’ve revised my blogroll. It was a long list of blogs and wend sites. I’ve reduced the list down bit also added some blogs That I follow in the reader but have never listed in the blogroll. Check out the action figure theater lists for more toy photography.
Today’s assignment: create an About page, or revisit and improve the one you have.
Today challenge is to make the about page more personal and informative. I’ve updated my about many times since the blog was born. The last time I used advice I from Michael Hyatt’s book, Platform. He suggested adding links your most popular posts on the about page to let readers see a glimpse into the blog.
For this assignment, I updated the most popular and most liked posts. I also added a few pictures and updated some text from my reintro post from day 1. Is there anything else I should add? what would you like to know?
you can see my about page here. Or click the link on the navigation bar at the top of each page.
Today’s Assignment: publish a post that includes a new-to-you element.
Today challenge is to add a new element to the blog. Basicially to expand my range of tools I can add to a post. This is a photoblog so adding an image is nothing new. I’ve posted several videos to the blog as well.
One thing I’ve never done is post a tweet to Yoda Archives. I use twitter. My post are published to twitter. But I’ve never took a tweet and posted it to the blog. I never knew how till I read the WordPress tutorial on twitter embeds.
Here are a few tweets from people I follow.
Another LEGO Photographer
A writer and a Kickstarter project.
And A tweet about a Agents of Shield live tweet event tonight.
Adding Tweets is a pretty easy process. I will incorporate my tweets in to this blog. This tweet was automatically generated by Publicize from my end of the year post.
