Formatting A Website | A Sleepover At The E House | Editing Information In A Bathroom

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was formatting website links and text, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This dream involved my family and I spending the night at a slightly fictional version of The E House and my parents house which were both slightly bigger and different than in the real world.

My parents and I were at The E House, and my brothers were at my parents house.

At some point I walked to my parents house briefly, I left the back door unlocked when I left in case my brothers were about to leave to follow me, but when I mentioned this to my mom she recommended locking the door so I went back and I locked it.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

In this dream I was inside The E House bathroom by the kitchen copying and pasting and editing information that someone copied and pasted from a website, and the information was about people.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Day Ten: Build a Better Blogroll

Today, let’s continue to weave the fabric of the blogosphere using one of the web’s essential tools: links.

Today’s assignment: use a widget to create a blogroll, a list of links you love that you want to share with your readers.

Here’s how:

  1. First, decide what kind of widget you want to use: the Blogs I Follow widget, or a Text widget.
  2. Next, click the button below to open the Customizer, then select Widgets, and add the widget you want to use.
  3. Finally, customize the widget’s settings and/or add your text, then click Save & Publish.

Recommendations are like getting advice from a friend rather than blindly searching the internet; adding them is a no-brainer — and often comes with traffic-building benefits.

Open the Customizer

The Blogs I Follow Widget will generate a list of your most recently-followed blogs automatically, while the Text Widget requires you to enter text and links yourself.

I find it strange that the widget designed for blogrolls which is called the Links widget was not mentioned for this part of the course and that there is a blogroll option (feature) in the Links Menu built into itself and that the Links widget shows your blogrolls that you created on in the Links Menu, and so I have contacted the staff using their Contact Page to report this strange omission of that widget and that option (feature).

I am also surprised that they did not mention Reader Lists.

Instead of using either of those three widgets I am now using my About page to show my blogroll (links) and the Posts I Like widget to save space in my sidebar and for a few other reasons.
