Polishing the edges

I am constantly on the lookout for ways to make this blog better. Easier to read, more accessible, interesting, pretty, etc. So naturally, when I was poking about and found the Zero to Hero challenge, I thought, “That’s for me.” So far, I’ve re-introduced myself and added a little widget to the sidebar to give visitors a little more information without obliging them to click on my About Me page. I really appreciated the widget challenge, I don’t think I would have thought of that myself.

My goal is to fill this blog with interesting and good writing, and encircle that with an informative design that doesn’t seem too cluttered or too sparse. Despite being a denizen of the internet for most of my life, I don’t have much experience in the area of web design. Also, I have a rather unfortunately biased view of my blog.

I am hoping the coming challenges from Zero to Hero help me to improve this place. I’m also open to suggestions from readers; you guys have a different view of this place and perhaps better ideas of things you’d like to see, better ways to place the information I have in the sidebar, etc. Feel free to comment on this post, or visit the Contact Me page to let me know what you think.

  1. I enjoy your writing style and look forward to seeing more. Maybe add a photo near your About widget? Just something to draw the reader’s attention to the text. Are you loving this challenge as much as me? It’s tough and outside my comfort zone, but I need it!
    best of luck going forward!

    • Thank you! I’m definitely having fun with this. I enjoy challenges, they help me focus.

      I’ve been giving though to adding a photo to my blog, but I’m (procrastinating) waiting for my new glasses to come in. And I need a haircut.
