Day 5: Blogging 201

Slowly, but surely, this tortoise (me) is catching up on assignments…for now.

Today’s assignment: integrate a feature to draw traffic to your older content like a widget, related posts, or a “Best of” page.

I read the articles linked in the course. I attempted short code – without success. You are supposed to be able to group posts. The only thing to change in the code is the word “Category.” For example, I would use “PiBoIdMo” in place of “Category.” Since that did not work, I tried something else. You may be asking,

What did you do, Cindy?

I simply added a page to my blog. It is a list of all posts related to last month’s Picture Book Idea Month challenge. I participated in, and completed, it. I am proud of myself. I did it! With this new page, I wanted to save my readers the agony of trying to find all PiBoIdMo posts, through the sea of others I had made afterwards. I mean, when you see “PiBoIdMo,” the first question that comes to mind is, What the heck is PiBoIdMo? By choosing the “Picture Book Idea Month 2015” page, not only will you be able to find out what it is, but are able to follow my progress. With one simple click! Is that awesome or what!

Hmm. This assignment is giving me even more ideas.

So, check out my new page. How do you like it? I look forward to your thoughts on it.
