notes and comments:
*(1) I’d like to explore this theme more fully before changing to another theme. I have my test blog to play with other themes to be sure before switching.
*(2) Switched from header to site logo instead.
*(3a) I made a new custom header at my other blog. (3b) Consider trying other graphics software than usual limited practice with MSPaint or SketchbookExpress app. Explore other ways with graphics – this wasn’t covered as fully as I might have liked.
*(4a) Need to try more fonts and change widget-frame-font colour option; (4b) Current backgrounds probably temporary; part of recent experimentation.
*(5) Make a day to play every week!!!
notes and comments:
*(6) Have been thinking about my widgets and sidebar but no action yet. Need to check if there’s a footer option and what am I missing or what needs altering?
*(7) Need a text widget for copyright blurb; need to have an award & award free widget; need dedicated blogroll maybe… what else – check back through notes.
*(8)Understand how to use the visibility function now so should try to use it.
*(9) Have incorporated a couple of pointers into this table for day 10 task but haven’t tried the html basic post writing excercise yet and really should do that.
*(10) I’ve learnt to make a table, columns and line breaks using html; I haven’t practised arranging text in the pre-formatted box yet …
